Outside observers might think that the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens would most want to re-sign their top sacker last season in Paul Kruger, but ESPN is reporting that ILB Dannell Ellerbe is their top priority.
Ellerbe and Kruger are both set to become unrestricted free agents. The Ravens are a bit cap strapped especially after QB Joe Flacco re-signed. But Baltimore is determined to bring Ellerbe back into the fold. After losing fellow ILB Ray Lewis to retirement, Ellerbe is their best remaining ILB on the roster.
He also figures to come at a cheaper price tag than Kruger, who will command big money on the open market with Indianapolis and Cleveland listed as the most interested suitors for his services.
