  Ravens | Met with Sammie Coates    Sun Jan 25, 07:10 AM

Auburn WR Sammie Coates met with Baltimore Ravens team officials during Senior Bowl week in Mobile, Ala.

Footballguys view: Coates was very impressive during the week of practice at the Senior Bowl. He's incredibly fast, and on film was a great deep threat at Auburn. However, at the Senior Bowl Coates showed the ability to run crisp routes and gain separation against different types of coverage. He could be a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta status update expected soon    Fri Jan 23, 04:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) met with some specialists last week, but the team is not expected to have an update on his status for a few weeks, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: This second hip injury is career-threatening, but the Ravens are optimistic that Pitta will be able to play in 2015. Harbaugh said he has talked with the team's trainer about the situation but does not want to discuss it at this point.

  Ravens | Sign Aldrick Robinson     Thu Jan 22, 02:04 PM

The Baltimore Ravens signed WR Aldrick Robinson to a Reserve/Future contract Thursday, Jan. 22.

Footballguys view: Robinson has flashed a little bit during his time in the pros, but we're not talking about an impact wide receiver here. He's best utilized as a return man, and Robinson is no lock to make the Ravens roster in 2015.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco on board with Marc Trestman    Thu Jan 22, 12:43 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco will have his fourth difference offensive coordinator in as many years in offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. However, head coach John Harbaugh is confident Flacco will get along with Trestman after the quarterback was involved in the decision to hire Trestman in the first place. "I think personality-wise, they're going to hit it off really well. They've both very smart, they're both very detailed and they're both very direct in their communication,' Harbaugh said.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Trestman can recapture the magic he used to have or if dealing with Jay Cutler for two years sucked it all out of him. Flacco has a big arm but can be inconsistent. Before Cutler, Trestman had turned several vets into Pro Bowlers. Can he get Flacco back to his Super Bowl shape? If nothing else, the passing offense should be more deadly.

  Ravens | Met with Justin Hardy    Thu Jan 22, 05:18 AM

WR Justin Hardy (East Carolina) met with the Baltimore Ravens this week during Senior Bowl activities.

Footballguys view: The Ravens could use some more receiver help, even if Steve Smith continues to play like a man half his age. Hardy could be a nice fit in Marc Trestman's offense. Hardy could go off the board as a late first- or early second-round pick. In college at East Carolina, Hardy was known for amazing production, quickness and route-running ability.

  Ravens | Marc Trestman wants to learn, not take over    Wed Jan 21, 03:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Marc Trestman said he wants to learn the specificities of the team's offense instead of changing it.

Footballguys view: We're excited about what Trestman could do with the Ravens offense. Head coach John Harbaugh said Trestman's familiarity and success with a West Coast offense were prominent factors in the team's decision to hire the former Bears head coach.

  Ravens | Hire Marc Trestman as offensive coordinator    Tue Jan 20, 03:33 PM

Free-agent head coach Marc Trestman (Bears) was hired by the Baltimore Ravens as the team's offensive coordinator Tuesday, Jan. 20. Trestman was previously the head coach of the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: It's a good move for Trestman and the Ravens. Baltimore gets a quality offensive coordinator after they lost Gary Kubiak to the Broncos. Trestman gets to stay in the NFL with a team that grooms head coaches. A notorious quarterback guru, Trestman should work well with Joe Flacco.

  Ravens | Kyle Shanahan could be OC candidate    Sun Jan 18, 07:52 AM

Should Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak leave for a head coaching position, former Cleveland Browns OC Kyle Shanahan could be a possible replacement.

Footballguys view: That would be a good move for the Ravens. Kubiak and Shanahan worked together with the Houston Texans, and Shanahan's system is similar to what Kubiak runs. Shanahan was a finalist last year before the job went to Kubiak.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels hopes to re-sign with Ravens    Thu Jan 15, 12:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent TE Owen Daniels said he would like to re-sign with the Baltimore Ravens this offseason and believes he can play a few more seasons in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Daniels may not have a ton of options outside of Baltimore, and he was a decent fit in the offense. On the other hand, Dennis Pitta is still under contract and if he's OK coming back through injury, Daniels' impact will be minimal.

  Ravens | Ray Rice grievance settled    Thu Jan 15, 10:54 AM

Former Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice settled his grievance with the team Thursday, Jan. 15. Financial compensation was undisclosed.

Footballguys view: The way this has been handled by all parties has been pretty abysmal, so this is one step closer to closing the book on the whole mess. The next question here is whether or not Rice finds a team come this summer.

  Ravens | Nine signed to futures contracts    Mon Jan 12, 04:02 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have signed QB Keith Wenning, QB Bryn Renner, CB Victor Hampton, CB Quinton Pointer, OT Marcel Jones, TE Allen Reisner, TE Konrad Reuland, FB Kiero Small and DE Zach Thompson to futures contracts. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Renner is an interesting player to watch here in super super deep dynasty leagues. He was a star quarterback for North Carolina, and Renner has the arm to challenge the edge of the field. He was added as a UDFA by the Broncos after the 2014 NFL draft. The Broncos decided to only keep two QBs on the roster, so Renner was let go after training camp.

  Ravens | Torrey Smith wants to stay in Baltimore    Sun Jan 11, 04:14 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith said he wants to stay with the team and that he would love to have a deal signed before he becomes a free agent in March.

Footballguys view: Smith is a fantastic deep target, but his production has lacked consistency in the pros. We can't imagine the market being white hot for his services, and he's certainly not a candidate for the franchise tag (should be around $12 million for WRs). We'll see if the Ravens find a way to come to an agreement with the veteran receiver.

  Ravens | Steve Smith plans to return    Sun Jan 11, 11:24 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith plans to play next season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Smith might have been contemplating retirement earlier in his career, but that's not the case now. His time with the Ravens has rejuvenated Smith, and he was on fire to begin the 2014 season. Smith's production trailed off as the season went on, but he should still be counted on 2015 as Torrey Smith is a free agent.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett solid in loss    Sat Jan 10, 08:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett had 24 carries for 129 yards in a 35-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: Forsett capped off an exceptional season with a fantastic game against the Patriots. He's entering free agency after rushing for a career high 1,266 yards. So long as Gary Kubiak is the OC in Baltimore, Forsett should be an option for the Ravens.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco's streak ends    Sat Jan 10, 08:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw for 292 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in a 35-31 loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10, snapping his streak of five straight playoff games without throwing an interception.

Footballguys view: Flacco was on point for most of the game, but the Ravens just fell short. Regardless of the interception (and the loss), Flacco is one of the greatest (if not the greatest) playoff QB of this generation.

Baltimore Ravens OT Eugene Monroe (ankle), who has missed the team's last two games, is 'very optimistic' about playing in the divisional round game against the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 10. If he plays, OT James Hurst would likely move to right tackle and OG Marshal Yanda would move from right tackle to guard.

Footballguys view: Hurst has done a good job filling in at left tackle while Monroe has been out. If Joe Flacco is comfortable in the pocket, it will complicate things for the Patriots defense.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco more aggressive in playoffs    Wed Jan 7, 03:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has averaged 15.3 yards per completion in five straight playoff wins, a testament to how aggressive he is throwing downfield in the postseason.

Footballguys view: He's okay in the regular season, but there is no doubt that Flacco is an incredible postseason quarterback. Flacco has yet to be intercepted in the playoffs, throwing 166 straight passes without connecting with his opponent.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco will not avoid Darrelle Revis    Wed Jan 7, 02:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said the team will not avoid throwing to the receiver that New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis will be covering during the Divisional Round playoff game, because avoiding Revis could affect the team's performance. 'I think as a play-caller, you have to just go out there, rely on your guys that you have that are out there, rely on the fact that they have ability,' Flacco said. 'And as a quarterback, you have to go out there and just go through your reads. And if he's open, throw it to him; if he's not, don't.'

Footballguys view: Flacco doesn't make bad decisions in the playoffs. He's going to go after guys if they're open, no matter what cornerback is covering them.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco good at drawing interference    Wed Jan 7, 01:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco has drawn 15 defensive pass interference penalties this year, which was the most by any quarterback. He has drawn 78 penalties since coming into the league in 2008, which is the most by an NFL quarterback in that span. Eleven of the 15 accepted penalties this year came on throws more than 15 yards downfield, and a common theme on those passes were underthrown balls. The Ravens have scored 56 points this year after an accepted pass interference penalty.

Footballguys view: Flacco has the arm to fire deep passes even when the pocket is cramped. His receivers can get open deep, but they also do a good job of drawing contact on long targets. The Patriots secondary features two fantastic CBs in Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, so it will be interesting to see how Baltimore attacks them.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco excels in playoffs    Mon Jan 5, 12:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is now 10-4 in the playoffs in his career after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card playoff round this weekend, and he's recorded seven of those wins on the road, which is two more than any other quarterback in NFL history. Flacco has tossed 13 touchdown passes and no interceptions in his last five playoff games. 'Joe Flacco, what can you say,' head coach John Harbaugh said. 'He's the best quarterback in football. We'll take him any day of the week, twice on Sunday or Saturday if that be the case.'

Footballguys view: Flacco has his fair share of struggles in the regular season. However, when the calendar turns and Baltimore is in the postseason, Flacco might be the best playoff QB in the league.
