Ravens Likely To Cut Willis McGahee

Feb 21, 2011


.
The Baltimore Sun is reporting that the Ravens will likely cut Willis McGahee to cut costs. McGahee could possibly return to the Ravens, but there could be several suitors for the veteran running back. McGahee will be 30 next year, but has not reached 200 carries in a season since 2007. He combined for just 209 carries the past two years.
.
The Ravens would love to have him back, as he is a perfect compliment to Ray Rice. However, given the success that LaDainian Tomlinson had last year with the Jets and Thomas Jones has had the past few years, there could be a new home for the former Hurricane.
.
One possible option would be a return to Miami if Ronnie Brown and/or Ricky Williams walk. The Eagles could use an upgrade backing up LeSean McCoy. Washington could use running back help. If the Niners don’t bring Brian Westbrook back, McGahee could be an option. The Colts could use him if they don’t bring Joseph Addai back.
.
Wherever McGahee lands, he likely won’t make a big fantasy impact as it’s unlikely that he earns a starter role anywhere. Those in touchdown heavy leagues will want to keep an eye on where he lands.
