I think he handled it immaturely but whatever.I suppose my answer in this case (if in fact true) is yes. His "abandonment" is Ravens specific. It will have no bearing on his commitment to the team who's given him a 5-year mega-deal. He's a competitor, holds himself to a very high standard, and he still knows he has a lot to prove.
The baggage is his injury history and 'tude. Hell Corey Dillon had those same issues but those issues at QB is a different matter.It's not baggage that will carry over. The salary will be resolved in a mutually agreed upon way or the trade wouldn't even happen. I'll take my chances with BB's postseason experience and a rejuvenated offense with a competent OC and a wildly dynamic QB.
