I'd be okay with him as a #2 TE.

However, I'd much rather spend that money on ANYBODY who can play secondary in the NFL.

Unfortunately that's clearly a position that front offices have put a premium on in the NFL, as evidenced by free agent deals for mid-tier cbs this offseason. Will hill will be so huge when he gets back.

Also, juice will probably be a major contributor moving forward.

Nah, move forward with Gillmore. Juszczyk will pretty much be taking over Pitta's role in the offense. No need to add a liability like Finley.

wouldn't surprise me if that is his career over.

there wasn't any force in the dislocation a part from himself and hips are the worst joint to dislocate really.

I'm going to guess some guy that hardly anybody knows about and is deactivated just about every week.

My guess is that we trade Dean Pees and Chykie Brown as well as a future 5th round pick to the Patriots for Rob Gronkowski.

Watch Gilmore come on to pull a Taliafero and make everyone worship the great Ozzie Newsome once more.

*glass half full*

I like Gilmore big body can be a red zone threat but not to sure about his route running and pitta could make some great catches hopefully Owens/juice can take over that role.

I have a question if hypothetically this is a career ending type injury what happens then money wise?

With that being said I'm hoping for the best you hate to see that to any player but especially a great guy with so much talent.

We gave him a pretty big contract in the off-season (5yrs, $32.5m) so he'll be on our books in one way (playing) or another (dead $$$) for a couple of years yet

I think that the rest of the receiving corps should be able to cover for Dennis Pitta's absence, this time.

Owen Daniels is a reliable pass catcher, Juszcyzk made his first impact as a receiver and looked solid, Steve Smith is clearly going to be a guy Joe can always go to. But we'll need to see more from Torrey, Marlon and Jacoby. Those guys have been very, very quiet so far this season, and I think that's due to scheme as much as anything. Kubiak will need to incorporate them more.

I think the Ravens may need to look at TE in the draft again next year, though. Daniels is a short term solution, Gillmore is an unproven commodity, and who knows whether Pitta will play again.
