    I can see Buffalo plucking a defensive starter from the Ravens on this deal.

    Most likely a 3rd round pick this year and a 5th next year.

    Several Ravens fans on the scout.com message boards are saying Sirius is reporting the trade is a done deal and the Ravens will send the Bills their 2nd round pick this year and next year's 6th round pick.

    Thats it? Sounds cheap for a guy of his caliber.

    Couldn't pull that one off in Madden.

    The Bills also just signed Chris Brown so the McGahee trade sounds legit.

    Seems like the Ravens are trying to get a legit offense to go with their splendid defense

    If the rumors are true that this is a done deal for a 2nd this year and a 6th this year, the Bills got out of this one with a pretty good deal. The Bears traded Thomas Jones for a 3rd and kind of set the market up, but McGahee does have more value than Thomas. I just surprised the Ravens gave it up so early. They knew what they wanted.

    I still don't get Buffalo's whole reason behind trading McGahee unless there are personal issues are he made someone mad in the front office. They invest a 1st round pick plus a year to recover from injury for him and end up getting a 2nd, 6th, and Chris Brown. I don't understand that reasoning, but oh well, thats why I'm not a GM.

    A 3rd and 7th this year and a 3rd next year for McGahee. I'd say the Billes did pretty well for themselves.

    mcgahee has insane talent. if he's motivated, he could lead the league in rushing.

    Had insane talent. The knee injury in the BCS game robbed NFL fans of seeing what McGahee could have been. Willis is just a 4.0 ypc plodder, now.

    I wonder if the Bills are going to make a run at Adrian Peterson now.

    I think the Ravens will go into the season as one of the favorites to win it all.

    not true. he still has ridiculous breakaway speed for a man his size. not quite the freakish freak as he was at The U, agility-wise, but still.

    I Remember telling people that Mcgahee was what made that UM team go but NOOOOOOOOOOOO they were all ken Dorsey this, that, basically watching too much ESPN. it's nice to know that i'm right sometimes.

    what made that UM team go was the ridiculous amount of talent at every single position. mcgahee was a fullback when they won the national championship, so it wasn't him. clinton portis and frank gore shared the pill that year. mcgahee didn't even get a shot till gore tore his knee up.

    I'm talking about the year he tore his knee up, You know when they were still killing everything in sight & Portis was gone & gore still hurt. but you're right as far as the talent goes though, that was just sick.

    Didn't McGahee lead the league in rushing sometime the first few weeks?
