The NFL offseason is about ready to explode with announcements and transactions. On Thursday teams can release players, and there are many teams who must to get under the salary cap. Some of these releases are already known, so we know who will be added to the free agent pool.

Local guy Todd Heap, a Mesa Mountain View graduate and former Arizona State Sun Devil, is going to be released by the Baltimore Ravens. He was due to make $4.6 million. 

Heap was one of many players to work out with Larry Fitzgerald during the offseason. He has local ties. He still has something left in the tank, even after ten NFL seasons. 

Plus, he would be the perfect guy to show rookie Robert Housler the ropes as a great pass-catching tight end. Of course, he would mean goodbye to Stephen Spach, a solid blocking TE. He would join Housler and second-year playe Jim Dray.

Adrian Wilson in a tweet welcomes the idea of Heap returning to where he started playing football.

However, the Ravens may wish to bring hims back at a lower salary. He could be willing to do that, especially considering his tenure there and the love fans have for him.

If he is to be part of the Cardinals this year, we will find out in the days to come.
