  Ravens | Joe Flacco not worried about WRs    Sat Apr 25, 09:43 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he does not think the team needs to draft a wide receiver despite losing WR Torrey Smith to the San Francisco 49ers in free agency.

Footballguys view: This is a great draft class for wide receivers (not quite as good as last year's though), so we're expecting the Ravens to draft a wideout with a premium pick. We'll see if they address the tight end position as well in this draft, although this class is not strong at that spot.

  Ravens | Justin Tucker may be tag option    Sat Apr 25, 09:28 AM

Baltimore Ravens PK Justin Tucker could be an option for the franchise tag next offseason if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement on a long-term deal before the tag deadline.

  Ravens | Kevin Johnson visits    Fri Apr 24, 02:23 AM

Wake Forest CB Kevin Johnson visited the Baltimore Ravens and worked out for the team, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Johnson could be a first- or second-round pick in the draft. He lacks ideal weight for the position, but he more than makes up for that with instincts, speed and quickness.

  Ravens | Baltimore interested in Duke Johnson?    Thu Apr 23, 07:16 PM

Miami (Fla.) RB Duke Johnson could be drawing interest from the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Johnson is maxed out at 205 pounds, but he plays with a lot of speed and quickness. He's a creative runner who can use jump cuts to create his own space, and he has the acceleration to get to top speed in a hurry. We don't feel Johnson can be a lead back given his lack of size and injury history. However, he could work well in a RBBC with Justin Forsett in Baltimore.

  Ravens | Melvin Gordon has visited Ravens    Thu Apr 23, 07:07 PM

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon has had a pre-draft visit with the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: The Ravens would fall all over themselves if Gordon falls to them in the draft. Sitting at 26th overall, it would take some doing to see Gordon get to that spot. He's likely to go off the board sooner as he's one of the two (Todd Gurley, Georgia) premiere backs in this draft class.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley to be limited in workouts?    Thu Apr 23, 04:34 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) could be limited in offseason workouts with a wrist injury. 'I'm going to do everything I can. I don't know how much physically I can do. I'm definitely going to be out on the field,' Mosley said.

Footballguys view: Mosley is a stud linebacker, and the Ravens would be wise to just take it easy on him as he recovers from this injury.

  Ravens | Will Hill signs tender    Thu Apr 23, 03:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent FS Will Hill signed his tender offer Thursday, April 23, according to sources. Hill received a one-year deal worth $1.54 million.

Footballguys view: When he's not suspended, Hill is one of the better safeties in the league. If he stays out of trouble this year, it could pay off with a big contract in 2016.

  Ravens | Phillip Dorsett visits    Thu Apr 23, 02:09 PM

Miami (Fla.) WR Phillip Dorsett met with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, April 22, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Dorsett can flat out fly and take the top off the defense. Since 2012, the Hurricanes prospect has averaged over 25 yards per catch. He can work outside as a deep threat, but Dorsett also has the run-after-the-catch ability to shine as a slot receiver on underneath routes. He should be a first- or second-round pick in the draft. The Ravens are looking for help at wide receiver since losing Torrey Smith (49ers) in free agency.

  Ravens | Casey Walker signs tender    Wed Apr 22, 06:11 PM

Baltimore Ravens DT Casey Walker signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender Wednesday, April 22. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Walker was signed off the Patriots practice squad late last year. The Ravens will have him compete as a rotational player on the defensive line. They'll have a new look up front with Haloti Ngata (Lions) getting traded earlier this offseason.


  Ravens | C.J. Mosley expects to take part in workouts    Wed Apr 22, 12:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) said he plans to participate in offseason workouts even though he underwent wrist surgery earlier in the offseason.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta in conditioning program    Mon Apr 20, 06:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is participating in the team's voluntary conditioning program that started Monday, April 20.

Footballguys view: Pitta's career remains in doubt after fracturing his right hip twice in the past two seasons and the Ravens don't expect to know his availability for the 2015 season until the summer.

  Ravens | Two players sign tenders    Mon Apr 20, 05:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken and CB Tramain Jacobs signed their exclusive-rights free-agent tenders Monday, April 20.

Footballguys view: Aiken is the player dynasty owners need to watch here. Last year, Aiken caught 24 passes for 267 receiving yards and three touchdowns. At this time, Aiken will compete for the WR3 job in Baltimore behind Steve Smith and Marlon Brown. However, we expect the Ravens to add a wide receiver in the draft.

  Ravens | Adrian Amos invited to pro day    Sun Apr 19, 02:54 AM

Penn State S Adrian Amos has been invited to the Baltimore Ravens local prospect day.

Footballguys view: Athletic and rangy, Amos can turn and stay with receivers on downfield routes. In addition to playing safety, Amos can also line up as a slot corner. He's a liability in run defense, and that keeps him playing outside the box.

  Ravens | David Mackall to attend pro day    Sun Apr 19, 02:49 AM

Delaware LB David Mackall will attend the Baltimore Ravens local prospect day.

Footballguys view: The former Maryland player transferred to Delaware after getting booted from the Terrapins in 2011. He can line up at defensive end or linebacker at the pro level, and some team should be interested in him as a priority free agent.

Link to story


  Ravens | E.J. Scott invited to pro day    Sun Apr 19, 02:39 AM

Wake Forest WR E.J. Scott was invited to the Baltimore Ravens' local prospect day.

Footballguys view: At 5'11" 180 pounds, Scott is stronger than defenders think and can run routes over the middle. A fifth-year senior, Scott went to Wake Forest after graduating from Virginia.

  Ravens | Cole Farrand to attend pro day    Sun Apr 19, 02:31 AM

Maryland LB Cole Farrand will attend the Baltimore Ravens pro day.

Footballguys view: Farrand is a late-round pick or priority free agent with traits that coaches love. He's a smart player with the instincts and ability to thrive at inside linebacker. Farrand gets by on heart and hustle.

  Ravens | Invite Khari Lee to pro day    Sun Apr 19, 02:27 AM

Bowie State TE Khari Lee has been invited to the team's pro day, which will be held prior to the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Lee has a basketball background, and he knows how to use his frame to box out defenders in order to keep them away from the ball. He needs work as a blocker, but there's enough there in terms of skill set for him to make a camp as a priority free agent.

  Ravens | Interest in Greg Jennings     Sat Apr 18, 02:47 AM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) has drawn interest from the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Jennings continues to get some more interest on the open market. He's taking his time in choosing his next stop because more than a few teams want him. The Ravens are looking for more talent at wide receiver since losing Torrey Smith (49ers) in free agency.

  Ravens | Four ERFAs re-sign    Fri Apr 17, 04:52 PM

  Ravens | Baltimore GM praises Bud Dupree     Thu Apr 16, 10:14 PM

Kentucky DE/LB Bud Dupree received praise from Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta. 'Bigger guy, extremely athletic, tremendous combine workout,' DeCosta said of Dupree. 'Another guy, he can play in space, he's got size, he matches up very well in coverage versus tight ends, which is unusual to find an outside linebacker who has that.'

Footballguys view: Collins has drawn some comparisons to Jamie Collins (Patriots) by some in the scouting community. His speed, athleticism, and nose for the ball should make him a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Ravens | BAL interested in Michael Crabtree     Mon Apr 13, 01:23 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is receiving interest from the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. The Ravens are one of three teams showing the most interest in Crabtree.

Footballguys view: Crabtree has not been getting much interest on the open market. The Ravens could be in the mix for his services as they look for wide receiver talent after losing Torrey Smith in free agency to the 49ers.

  Ravens | Melvin Gordon won't make it past BAL    Mon Apr 13, 09:25 AM

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon won't slip further than the Baltimore Ravens at No. 26 in the 2015 NFL Draft, in the opinion of SI.com's Peter King.

Footballguys view: Gordon may not even make it that far. We should see two running backs selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft. There hasn't been a back selected in the opening round since 2012, but Gordon and Todd Gurley (Georgia) have superstar potential. The Ravens re-signed Justin Forsett earlier this offseason, but they're likely to add another back to the mix at some point. This is a strong draft class at running back, and talent can be found in every round.

  Ravens | Shane Ray to visit    Sun Apr 12, 11:25 AM

Missouri DE Shane Ray is scheduled to meet with the Baltimore Ravens before the 2015 NFL Draft, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Ray's game is nearly flawless. He can get after the quarterback with his blend of size, speed and instincts. His ability to bend around the edge and go under a tackle's outstretched hands is really fun to watch. Ray is a strong leader who plays aggressively and with a chip on his shoulder. He's easily a first-round pick, and there's a chance he goes in the top 10 of the draft.

  Ravens | Met with Jay Ajayi    Fri Apr 10, 03:17 PM

Boise State RB Jay Ajayi recently met with the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: The Ravens will be in the market for a running back with Justin Forsett really only a short-term answer. Ajayi has good hands out of the backfield and could be a very good PPR back in Marc Trestman's offense.

  Ravens | Jah Reid returning    Thu Apr 9, 01:38 PM

Free-agent OT Jah Reid (Ravens) signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, April 9, worth $745,000, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Reid never became the starter the Ravens wanted him to be when they traded up to get him in the 2011 draft, but provides solid depth at tackle and guard. He's battled injuries his whole career and there are his veteran minimum contract has playing time clauses, according to Wilson. That doesn't hold a lot of confidence that he will improve his health issues.

  Ravens | Michael Campanaro to see more time?    Wed Apr 8, 09:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro is a player who could see a larger role in the offense in the upcoming season, head coach John Harbaugh indicated Wednesday, April 8.

Footballguys view: Campanaro is currently third on the depth chart behind Steve Smith and Marlon Brown. The 2014 seventh-round pick appeared in four games last year, and he hauled in seven catches for 102 yards and one touchdown. The diminutive receiver is tough when running routes over the middle, and he does a good job of smoothly making catches while turning to run after the catch. His fantasy value is low at this time, but he's an interesting name to monitor in deeper leagues if he can further develop his game.

  Ravens | Bigger role for Kamar Aiken?    Wed Apr 8, 09:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday, April 8, that WR Kamar Aiken is a player who will have a chance to grow into a bigger role in the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: Aiken has bounced around to four different teams since he came out of Central Florida as an undrafted free agent in 2011. Last season he put up numbers for the first time in his pro career with 24 catches, 267 yards and three receiving touchdowns. He'll compete for playing time behind Steve Smith and Marlon Brown this season, and his playing time will need to be monitored by fantasy owners in deeper leagues. Aiken flashed some talent last year, but we'll have to wait and see if he can make that next step in 2015.

  Ravens | Dorial Green-Beckham visits with BAL    Wed Apr 8, 01:55 PM

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham has met with Baltimore Ravens, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Footballguys view: Talent is not a question with Green-Beckham. Based purely on talent alone, Green-Beckham is a top-10 talent. However, off-field problems caused Green-Beckham to get suspended at Missouri and transfer to Oklahoma before declaring to go pro. Think of Green-Beckham the same way you do Josh Gordon (Browns). The talent is off the charts, but Green-Beckham will need to show maturity and focus if he's going to consistently play up to his potential as a pro.

  Ravens | Meet with Marcus Peters    Wed Apr 8, 01:54 PM

Washington CB Marcus Peters has met with Baltimore Ravens, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Footballguys view: Peters has prototypical size for the cornerback position in the pros. However, character concerns could cause his draft stock to fall to the second round. Peters was suspended one game last year by Huskies head coach Chris Petersen for a sideline tantrum that followed personal foul penalty. He was later dismissed from team over multiple run-ins with coaching staff. Maturity problems are his main problem. On the field, Peters plays a lot like Broncos CB Aqib Talib.

  Ravens | BAL to meet with Breshad Perriman    Wed Apr 8, 12:17 PM

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman is scheduled to meet with the Baltimore Ravens before the 2015 NFL Draft, according to sources.

Footballguys view: At 6'2" 215 pounds, Perriman is more explosive than other receivers his size. He can get off the line of scrimmage quickly and cleanly, and Perriman does a good job maintaining his speed out of the break. He's raw as a route-runner, but his physical skill set make him an intriguing option for teams in the late first or early second round. The Ravens lost Torrey Smith (49ers) in free agency, and they could use a guy like Perriman to stretch the field.

  Ravens | Max Garcia to work out    Wed Apr 8, 02:46 AM

Florida OL Max Garcia has a private workout scheduled with the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Garcia is a position-versatile player who lined up at center, guard and tackle for the Gators during his college career. He's a mauler inside, but he has limited athleticism. Look for Garcia at the end of the draft, or as a priority free agent after the draft.

  Ravens | Big expectations for Crockett Gillmore    Tue Apr 7, 01:10 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore was solid in his rookie season as a No. 2 tight end most of the year, and team owner Steve Bisciotti feels Gillmore could take a big step forward. 'When you have a guy like a Jason Witten who loves to block - doesn't just do it because he's being made to do it - and can get off the line of scrimmage, that can be a great weapon. I really would expect 30-40 balls to Crockett this year,' Bisciotti said.

Footballguys view: We may never see Dennis Pitta play football again. This means Gillmore could be the top tight end for the Ravens in 2015. He knows how to use his frame to box out smaller defenders, and Gillmore can win at the point of the catch. Gillmore is not incredibly athletic, and even as the Ravens top tight end we only see him as a TE2 for fantasy owners.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley had surgery    Sat Apr 4, 08:48 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) underwent offseason surgery, according to league sources. The Pro Bowl linebacker is expected to make a complete recovery and should be able to participate in offseason workouts and practices.

Footballguys view: Mosley flashed playmaking ability as a rookie last year. He can hit, he can cover, and he's an intimidating player in the middle of the defense. Expect more of the same in year two.

  Ravens | Hopeful Dennis Pitta can return    Wed Apr 1, 10:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is trying to work his way back from a second hip dislocation. 'I'm praying that Dennis comes back and he's healthy enough and they come to a solution and he feels comfortable,' team owner Steve Bisciotti said Wednesday, April 1.

Footballguys view: Pitta's hip injury could end his career. The Ravens don't know if he'll be available to play this season. They could add a tight end in the draft to compete with Crockett Gillmore to be the team's starter if Pitta can't play anymore.

Baltimore Ravens QB Matt Schaub (elbow) said his elbow is fine, and it wasn't a factor at all in 2014.

Footballguys view: Schaub's play has fallen off, but he's not going to blame the elbow. He'll work nicely as a reserve player behind Joe Flacco.

  Ravens | Baltimore has discussed Rob Housler    Wed Apr 1, 01:07 AM

The Baltimore Ravens have held talks with free-agent TE Rob Housler (Cardinals). The Cincinnati Bengals are also interested in his services.

Footballguys view: Baltimore lost Owen Daniels (Broncos) in free agency, and Dennis Pitta's future is unclear after a severe hip injury. The Ravens have second-year pro Crockett Gillmore, but they could use some help at the position.

  Ravens | Matt Schaub signs with Baltimore    Tue Mar 31, 02:17 PM

Updating an earlier report, free-agent QB Matt Schaub (Raiders) signed with the Baltimore Ravens Tuesday, March 31. Terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Schaub will give the team a nice backup quarterback behind Joe Flacco. He's certainly a better fit as a reserve player than last year's backup Tyrod Taylor (Bills). Schaub has a skill set more similar to that of Flacco.

  Ravens | Matt Schaub to back up Joe Flacco?    Mon Mar 30, 11:29 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Schaub (Raiders) has received interest from the Baltimore Ravens, as well as the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets. According to a source, Schaub is expected to sign this week.

Footballguys view: Schaub is a reserve quarterback at this point in his career. He would be a good backup behind Flacco in Baltimore, and Schaub would give the Ravens veteran depth at the position.

  Ravens | DeVante Parker to meet with BAL    Sun Mar 29, 06:56 AM

Louisville WR DeVante Parker is set to meet with the Baltimore Ravens in the next few days. He will also meet with the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins in the future.

Footballguys view: Parker is one of our favorite wide receivers in this draft class. We like his ball-tracking ability on deep passes. Parker has a large catch radius, and he does a good job of naturally high-pointing passes. He's quick, but his separation ability is inconsistent.

  Ravens | P.J. Williams to visit    Thu Mar 26, 07:59 AM

Florida State CB P.J. Williams will visit the Baltimore Ravens prior to next month's NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Williams is a cover corner who can play on an island, cover outside or from the slot,or come up and play man-press. He should go pretty high in the coming NFL draft.

  Ravens | Baltimore to visit with Melvin Gordon    Wed Mar 18, 07:26 PM

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon has set up a pre-draft visit with the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. The Ravens hold the 26th overall pick in the first round of this year's draft. NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah said Gordon 'should be ready to contribute on all three downs in Year 1.'

Footballguys view: Gordon is not a power back, but he has the speed to score from anywhere on the field. He'll likely be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. We like his vision and patience when allowing blocks to develop in front of him. If added, Justin Forsett's fantasy value would take a huge hit.

Free-agent DE Lawrence Guy (Ravens) has agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, March 18, on a two-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Free-agent DE Chris Canty (Ravens) has agreed to terms Wednesday, March 18, with the Baltimore Ravens on a two-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Canty was entering the third year of his deal with the Ravens when he was released earlier this year. That transaction saved the Ravens $2.66 million against the salary cap. Canty cancelled a visit with the Seattle Seahawks so he could stay in Baltimore. He missed five games in 2014, including four after undergoing surgery for a staph infection in his wrist and thumb. Canty had 33 tackles, a half-sack and a forced fumble in 11 starts.
