If I was a raven veteran, I'm wondering/asking weddle if he's here to be the best safety he can be? Or is he here to make his ex girlfriend jealous

I think that's a fair question at this point
There is no denying Weddle had a great year last year so whatever his focus is/was it's helping him and the Ravens. His recruitment of Woodhead had to have the blessing of the Ravens or they wouldn't have signed him. And Weddle helped recruit Tony Jefferson of the Arizona Cardinals. If his focus was solely on the Chargers I doubt he would do that.

I'm thinking the Ravens appreciate Weddle's work ethic, his attitude, and his willingness to help the team get free agents they want.

Which read, your not getting more money from the nfl and you'll be in the same position this time next year praying for a miracle

I don't agree with the move, I wouldn't have moved myself, but after dads been threatening to turn the car around for so many years, it's understandable how dad might just do it.
My response was specifically aimed at the post I responded to within the context of it and the one it responded to.

Not with the deadline the Chargers had. They used their 1 year extension, and there was no indication that the Chargers would've received another year extension by the league. In my opinion, this forced Dean's hand to make the move.

Ya i get it.
But within the context you suggested "the Chargers could have waited..."
However there was a deadline to make the decision, and the Raiders going or not going to Vegas wasn't resolved, so I'm just trying to clarify what you meant.

OP- Kroenke- Help Spanos stay in SD.
Response to OP- MD would've exercised his option to take a spot in Inglewood.
My response to response- NFL could've extended deadline until LV deal done.

The deadline could've been extended until the Raiders/LV deal was completed. Then Kroenke could've tried to keep Spanos in SD without fear of Mark Davis "swooping" in to LA.

The NFL could've done an extension if their goal was to keep Spanos in SD.

The NFL wanted finality in team location (stability), at least as much as they could achieve, and seem to have it. The NFL also knows how bad those stadiums are, and certainly understands the positions of each owner in this.

Those are all debatable of course. Not saying different. The bolded isn't really relevant because all owners would end up with new stadiums.

Knowing a stadium situation is bad, and having empathy for the owner is a far cry from putting up the money for a new house. The NFL recognizes the poor stadiums in both OAK and SD, but are only willing to go so far. The 'public' financing approach seems to be dead, and the Kroenke deep pockets are far and few.

I think they were looking forward to extending the deadline to have Spanos searching another year looking for public financing and figured they could "assure" the raiders to vegas was a done deal.
thereby assuring Dean has no worries about getting a stadium done in SD without the leverage of LA
but as much as the NFL can "assure" Dean of this, unless the Radiers' move was resolved before the 2018 deadline, Dean isn't promised anything, and the raiders could have easily jumped to LA.

as much as I like ot blame Spanos, if I were him, that would probably be the worst case scenario...
being 2018, Raiders and Rams in LA and im still hangling with SD politicians for financing.

the new hot shot investors are quickly learning that Deans struggles with the city are very real, and thats WITH their own money haha
