NFL Breaking News, McGahee to the Ravens

Today Willis McGahee was trading to the Baltimore Ravens for three draft choices. Two of the picks will be in this year's draft and another one next year. ESPN.com reported the Bills received a third- and seventh-round pick in April's draft, along with a third-round pick in 2008.

While I thought the Ravens were losing a good back in Jamal Lewis, they are getting a great back in McGahee.

"We're getting a dynamic back who has the potential to diversify our running game," Ravens coach Brian Billick said. "We've studied him, and he brings the same passion and preparation that is common to Miami players, like our Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. Getting a player as good as Willis is another example of how Ozzie and his department size up the market and use our resources well."

The Bills may now be in the market for Chris Brown or Dominic Rhodes. Don't count out Corey Dillon who is still a free agent, he might fit in for a year stint with the Bills.
