    It appears likely that Willis McGahee will be cut by the Baltimore Ravens this offseason. The team decided at their recent evaluation meetings not to bring the running back and his $6 million in base salary back for the 2011 season, The Baltimore Sun reported on Monday, citing an NFL source. When asked about McGahee's future, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said that no players would be cut before the current CBA deal expires on March 3. Newsome was non-committal when asked if the running back will be with Baltimore next season. "Right now, there are a lot of things that could happen before next season," Newsome said. NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported that McGahee, who longs to be a starting tailback again, is not inclined to take less than his $6 million salary to stay behind Ray Rice and a parting of the sides seems inevitable at some point this offseason.

    Ravens have a history of their "scraps" being successful elsewhere. To the point...Priest Holmes. But I have no doubt it's in the best interest of the Ravens if Newsome is orchestrating it.

    Yeah but Willis is recycled scrap. No way he deserves $6M for one year.

    He's a solid #2 but worth no where near what he was going to make - I wouldn't be surprised if we bring him back for less money but obviously I think McClain is the better talent and would prefer to see him as the priority resign.
