Sportsbooks Odds: Byron Leftwich wanted Ravens

Sportsbooks Odds NewsNine years ago, the Baltimore Ravens quarterback wanted to play against them on Sunday (Byron Leftwich) rather than the best player who now has his own defensive (Terrell Suggs).

Confused?? Well, the first round of the 2003 draft was all a misunderstanding. The Ravens wanted Leftwich both this draft that concluded an exchange last minute with the Minnesota Vikings, to jump three places to No. 7, where he could have selected quarterback from Marshall. However, because it rang busy tone when they tried to inform the league, time ran out before they could complete the deal.

Instead, the Jacksonville Jaguars took Leftwich with the seventh overall pick and chose Ravens Suggs with No. 10. To date, Leftwich has played with four teams (Jacksonville, Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers) while Suggs has become the leading all-time catch the Ravens and was named Defensive Player Year last season. I guess you could say that the Ravens were lucky that the league office did not have the call waiting service in 2003.

 

At that time, Leftwich thought he was going to go to the Ravens.

"I remember having phone conversations with Ozzie, and it was a fact," said Leftwich Baltimore reporters in a conference call. "I guess the debacle occurred during the draft. Remember being in the draft. Had three teams I think with my name on a card trying to push. Remember that part, because it was in the draft. Thought I would be a Raven, really, but it was not. "

On Sunday night, when Leftwich faces Baltimore, the Ravens hope to finish with the best part again.
