  Ravens | Interested in Cody Latimer    Fri Apr 18, 02:19 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have growing interest in Indiana WR Cody Latimer.

Footballguys view: Latimer's stock is on the rise--and for good reason. He's a big player who can fly down the field. Latimer does a nice job of winning at the point of the catch, which helps him as a red-zone threat.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley visits    Thu Apr 17, 07:19 PM

The Baltimore Ravens met with Alabama LB C.J. Mosley earlier this week.

Footballguys view: The Ravens continue to look to reboot their defense. Mosley is widely considered to be the top inside linebacker in the draft and may not even make it to Baltimore at No 17 but if he does, they might trip over people on the sprint up to the podium.

  Ravens | Eric Ebron still an option    Wed Apr 16, 04:21 PM

The Baltimore Ravens could still consider selecting North Carolina TE Eric Ebron during the 2014 NFL Draft even though they added TE Owen Daniels this offseason.

Footballguys view: Any team should be interested in Ebron. He's a talented move tight end who creates mismatches every time he's on the field. Ebron can attack the deep middle seam of the defense to stretch opponents thin. He's a weapon, our favorite tight end this year, and a top-15 first-round pick.

  Ravens | Rolando McClain fails conditioning test    Wed Apr 16, 12:01 PM

Updating previous reports, retired LB Rolando McClain failed his conditioning tests during his workout with the Baltimore Ravens. The test consisted of six timed 150-yard runs.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be shocked by this news. McClain was a bust for many reasons as a pro, and certainly was never a player who had outstanding conditioning. His comeback won't go further than the refrigerator if he can't get in better shape.

  Ravens | Rolando McClain shows rust in workout    Tue Apr 15, 11:55 PM

Retired LB Rolando McClain (Ravens) worked out for the Baltimore Ravens Tuesday, April 15, as he attempts a comeback. The workout wasn't a smooth one in terms of conditioning, and he has a lot of rust, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: McClain showed rust when he was active. It's no surprise he wouldn't be sharp during a comeback attempt.

  Ravens | Meet with Troy Niklas    Mon Apr 14, 03:01 PM

The Baltimore Ravens recently met with Notre Dame TE Troy Niklas.

Footballguys view: The Ravens kept Dennis Pitta around and they added Owen Daniels in free agency, but they could still be interested in a tight end. Niklas is a huge athlete who creates problems for opponents after the catch. He's not going to stretch the deep middle seam, but he can work well on underneath routes and red-zone targets. He's likely to be a second-round pick.

  Ravens | Will meet with Kyle Van Noy    Sun Apr 13, 10:06 AM

The Baltimore Ravens will meet with BYU LB Kyle Van Noy.

Footballguys view: Adding Van Noy in the first round would make a lot of sense for the Ravens. He's a high-motor player with football intelligence. Van Noy can diagnose plays quickly as they unfold in front of him. When asked, Van Noy can also effectively drop and cover in the open field.

  Ravens | Charges against Deonte Thompson dropped    Sat Apr 12, 11:42 AM

The drug charges against Baltimore Ravens WR Deonte Thompson have been dropped because of insufficient evidence. Thompson was arrested in February for suspicion of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

  Ravens | Meet with Logan Thomas    Sat Apr 12, 11:13 AM

The Baltimore Ravens have met with or worked out Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas this offseason.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a mid- or late-round quarterback with a raw skill set. He's big, has a strong arm and he can keep plays alive with his feet. Thomas is not accurate and needs to work on his decision making from the pocket. The upside has always been there with Thomas, but he didn't really develop as a collegian and he didn't play up to his potential. Thomas could compete with Tyrod Taylor for the primary backup behind Joe Flacco.

  Ravens | Terrance West to work out    Fri Apr 11, 06:03 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have a workout scheduled with Towson RB Terrance West for Monday, April 14.

Footballguys view: Adding West would make a lot of sense for the Ravens. West is a big back who can run in the 4.5s. Some think he'll be a top 100 pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

  Ravens | Have met with Terrance West    Mon Apr 7, 11:43 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have already had a pre-draft meeting with Towson RB Terrance West. He is from North Baltimore, and played his ball in the city.

Footballguys view: West could be a fine addition for the Ravens. He can run in the 4.5s and he has the size to grind down opponents. The Ravens could use him to compete with Bernard Pierce for the primary backup position behind Ray Rice in 2014.

  Ravens | Would like inside linebacker help    Mon Apr 7, 02:32 AM

Although inside linebacker has not been discussed as a major position of need for the Baltimore Ravens after LB Daryl Smith was re-signed, head coach John Harbaugh wants to add one or two inside linebackers to the roster.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels to have prominent role    Sat Apr 5, 11:34 AM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said TE Owen Daniels will have a big role in the offense this upcoming season. 'Just couldn't be more happy, more excited. ... I guarantee his role will be plenty big,' Harbaugh said. 'He's going to have a lot to do with our success next year, and we've got a lot of big plans for him.'

Footballguys view: Daniels is going to be an option when the team lines up in two-tight end sets. New OC Gary Kubiak knows how to use Daniels from their days together with the Texans. We still like Dennis Pitta as the most fantasy-relevant tight end in Baltimore.

  Ravens | Re-sign Terrence Cody    Fri Apr 4, 03:05 PM

The Baltimore Ravens re-signed DT Terrence Cody Friday, April 4. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: "Mount Cody" gets to stick around in Baltimore, but his spot on the roster is not guaranteed. He was a second-round pick in 2010, but Cody has been a bust so far as a pro. We'll see if he can finally start playing like the run-stuffer he used to be in college at Alabama.

  Ravens | Sign Justin Forsett    Fri Apr 4, 01:33 PM

The Baltimore Ravens signed RB Justin Forsett (Jaguars) to a one-year contract Friday, April 4. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Forsett is familiar with Gary Kubiak's system from their time together in Houston. He'll compete for a reserve/change-of-pace role behind Ray Rice. The Ravens are still expected to add a RB at some point in the 2014 NFL draft.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels not expected to be No. 1 TE    Fri Apr 4, 11:48 AM

The Baltimore Ravens don't expect TE Owen Daniels to serve as their No. 1 tight end this season, as they already have TE Dennis Pitta on roster.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak is likely to implement two-tight end sets into the system. Daniels will work as a complementary player behind/alongside Pitta.

  Ravens | Rolando McClain would like to return    Thu Apr 3, 11:26 PM

Retired LB Rolando McClain said he would like to play for the Baltimore Ravens if he comes out of retirement.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels agrees    Thu Apr 3, 06:02 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels signed an undisclosed one-year deal with the team Thursday, April 3. Daniels and TE Dennis Pitta are expected to be on the field often in two tight end sets. The Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers were also interested in Daniels.

Footballguys view: Daniels follows former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak to Baltimore. He already knows the system, and Daniels will work in two-tight end sets with Dennis Pitta. Daniels is not the same player he used to be, but this is a good fit for the veteran.

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice and Janay Palmer were married Friday, March 28, one day after Rice was indicted by a grand jury on third-degree aggravated assault for allegedly hitting Palmer and knocking her unconscious, according to league sources. The ceremony had been planned for several weeks. Palmer was also charged with simple assault, but the complaint against her has been dismissed.

  Ravens | Will work out Cody Latimer    Sun Mar 30, 11:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens wide receivers coach Bobby Engram will conduct a private workout with Indiana WR Cody Latimer at some point before the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are looking for a young wide receiver to develop on the depth chart. Latimer is currently seen as a fifth-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He has good size, and will regularly pluck passes out of the air. Latimer is not an elite athlete and he needs to sharpen his route-running skills.

  Ravens | Tyrod Taylor will face competition    Sun Mar 30, 11:17 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Tyrod Taylor knows he will face competition to hold on to the backup quarterback job. 'Yeah, we talked about it, and there's competition across the league every day,' Taylor said. 'You've got to compete for your job to stay there. We know where we stand. I'm trying to get better every day. Competition -- that's the name of this game.'

Footballguys view: Taylor has always been an odd fit as the backup to Joe Flacco. He's incredibly athletic and has a strong arm, but he's not a pocket passer like the guy in front of him. Under new OC Gary Kubiak, the Ravens could look to add another pocket passer at some point in the 2014 NFL draft.

The Baltimore Ravens attended the Texas A&M Pro Day Thursday, March 27, in order to scout WR Mike Evans, according to sources. The Ravens met with Evans at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Evans could be a top-10 pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He reminds some in the scouting community of Jimmy Graham (Saints) because of his size, wingspan and athleticism.

  Ravens | Ray Rice indicted on assault charges    Thu Mar 27, 04:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice was indicted on third-degree aggravated assault charges Thursday, March 27, for last month's incident at an Atlantic City casino. The charge carries a three- to five-year prison term.

Footballguys view: We'll have to see how this lays out, but it's certainly not great news for his owners or the Ravens. Rice is already coming off a bad year where he looked like a shadow of himself, and it is likely the Ravens look to the draft to bring in some more talent for the backfield. We don't expect him to be cut, but you never know.

  Ravens | Will meet with Marqise Lee    Thu Mar 27, 02:28 PM

The Baltimore Ravens will meet with USC WR Marqise Lee this week.

Footballguys view: The Ravens know Steve Smith is a temporary fix and they need a long term one. Once considered a lock for the top three receivers off the board, frequent drops during his career and injury issues have derailed him, but he will absolutely be there when the Ravens pick in the first, if not the second.

  Ravens | Will have competition at RT    Wed Mar 26, 05:24 PM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said OTs Ricky Wagner and Jah Reid will compete for the starting right tackle job next season. OG Kelechi Osemele could be moved to right tackle if the team selects a guard early in the draft.

Footballguys view: The Ravens have solidified their left tackle and center positions in the offseason, but right tackle is a hole after Michael Oher was allowed to leave to sign a surprisingly lucrative deal with Tennessee.
