Mr. Scot

Speaking of failed physicals..

Recommended Posts

But I'm sure the Ravens weren't up to any shenanigans or anything.

By the way, welcome to Baltimore, Mr. Crabtree.

Yeah NFL should look into that, I think that is dirty to do a player like that. Totally different than our situation, Breeland and his agent tried to keep his injury silent and that's bs.

It seems to me that it was more like Breeland didn't think the injury was a problem at all not anything nefarious. He was certainly wrong but I don't blame him for us getting screwed over. Just an unfortunate situation.

Prediction: Ravens are going to be investigated if he passes another physical.    I can see a loss of a draft pick.

They wouldn't have brought him in if they didn't want him. He obviously failed their criteria.

He knew he had an injury and stalled getting here to have it checked out,  Why delay if he didn't think it was a concern?

This. I thought it was weird that he didn't show to sign on Wednesday but I didn't think much into it. But based on what happened yesterday, I think he was 100% stalling.

The Ravens with Grant? Crabtree wasn't available when they agreed to terms with Grant. It's definitely suspicious.

Got a pretty good feeling the NFLPA gets involved in this story at some point.

I could see the Ravens having to pay Ryan Grant some money.

I hope so, definitely not kosher at all. Especially since they went hard at Crabtree. Complete buyer's remorse and if he passes multiple other physicals, they used that to get out of it. I hope the NFLPA gets all over it because it's absolutely a player issue when a team can just flub the physical because of another player getting released.

Yall are funny. Nothing will happen and there aren't any rules related to this anyway. This happens all the time plus there is no NFL wide physical standard. Teams pass people all the time who aren't actually healthy and fail other players based off previous injuries or any number of things if they think the future could be compromised. 

If you have had surgeries or even just minor injuries even within a year the effects will still be visible and most players could fail any scrutinized to the fullest physical just based on future "scares" because they are all fuged up under the microscope. Literally 0 that could be done to the Ravens. Dood was injured in week 15 and again in 17 so there is absolutely something to see on a scan at this point. Once again just because he passed a physical or 10 elsewhere doesn't mean anything and it never has.

Hell there could be a player who is flat footed and played 10 years injury free and go try to sign with another team and get failed because of that even if that is the only thing wrong with em.

I dont think the Ravens will see any repercussions from this, but I do absolutely think that Crabtree's sudden availability played a huge role in him "failing" his physical.

They had reached a 4 year/$29M agreement with grant with $14.5M guaranteed. They signed Crabtree to a 3 year/$21M deal with $11M guaranteed. I bet that contract looks virtually identical to the first three years of the Grant contract. They probably pretty much took Grant's deal and translated it into a 3 year deal for Crabtree due to his age.

If Crabtree didn't get cut I'd bet just about anything that Grant is a Raven.

Not sure about the NFL on their own, but I do think this is the kind of thing I could see the Player's Association raising a stink about.

How or whether the NFL would choose to respond to that? Unknown.
