Everyone is on the radar right now- can they get him to leave Baltimore as successor to Newsome

On board for this. Ozzie is a terrific evaluator of talent. Learning under him these past years and his coming up through the ranks makes it a no brainer.

 

Now if he can only bring John Harbaugh with him.

This will be interesting because if you're DeCosta how long do you "wait" for

Ozzie Newsome to retire.  It doesn't seem like that's going to happen anytime

soon

DeCosta is just the name everyone knows. He may be great, but who knows? I'm glad they're out there turning over every rock, though.

Too bad, they can't use Rex.

I read that he is contractually set up to become the next GM after Ozzie.

We made a push for Harbaugh, too. I expect this to end in a similar fashion.

 

Yeah, except, no one remembers when.

Unless they bump Ozzie to President of Football Operations and DeCosta as GM. It's only a title game but they give him a pay raise to boot.

 

If I were him I would ant to put my own stamp on an organization... not just be the guy to keep the ship heading straight

They won't get him, as I can't see him taking the Jets job after having turned down so many in the past.  

 

Still, they have to try, and hopefully this is the year that he's finally decided he'll have to wait too long for his turn in Baltimore and decides to move on.

People know his name because he is a coveted candidate every year.

We took a crack at Decosta 2 years ago, and he shrugged us off... when the parameter was "keep Rex". So yea...

It is but I think its for good reason.  Ozzie is solid and he's had to learn a thing or two from him.

 

Also, Steve Bisciotti is one the best businessmen in the country.  You'd think he's learned a little bit from him as well.

None of of us know sh*t... but Ravens are good every year, do better then average in drafting and this guy doesn't have an accountants background. Better chance this works out then hiring the cap guy from the Oakland Raiders

As soon as Ozzie retires it's a cocktail napkin that reads, "I resign as the GM of the CB."

I love Biscotti. Definitely Italian. And delicious.

Agreed.. I have no idea what his motivations are for staying put, maybe its family reasons? Generally speaking, I'd prefer the guy who would want to come here and fix something that's been broken for a long long time. Also NYC. This job has to be the biggest challenge out there, and we have an early pick and plenty of CAP space

Ozzie is classier than "he that shall not be named"

it might be sooner than people realize. Ozzie's the man but he had alot of faith in Ray Rice. And that didn't go well.

Wish people would stop bringing up his name. He's not leaving Baltimore. It's a great organization, they're winning, he built that place up, he has all the scouts in place that he trusts, he has been declining every job interview for the last 10 years with other teams. He's not gonna leave now when Ozzie is about to retire next year so that some other guy can just come in and profit off of all the hard work he put in. It's just NOT happening. Move on.

Agreed. This job is more enticing than people make it out to be. It's definitely a challenge, no doubt about that.

enticing for the right guy, it's fraught with danger as well.. rabid media, a fan base that is more impatient then most
