  Ravens | Christo Bilukidi staying with team    Fri Feb 27, 03:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent DT Christo Bilukidi has agreed to a two-year deal with the Ravens, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bilukidi has not gotten much opportunity to show the team what he's got, but he must be impressing the decision makers behind the scenes. In 2014, he played in four games and recorded three tackles. He'll fight for a spot on the depth chart in training camp this year.

  Ravens | Jacoby Jones released    Wed Feb 25, 12:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones was released Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Things change pretty quick around here. Just last March, Jones signed a four-year deal with the Ravens with $4.5 million guaranteed...now he's looking for a job. Teams should be interested in him, mainly because of his ability as a return man.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels wants to return to BAL    Wed Feb 25, 07:36 AM

Free-agent TE Owen Daniels (Ravens) has expressed interest in returning to the Baltimore Ravens, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Many think Daniels will follow Gary Kubiak (again) to Denver. He could stick around in Baltimore as the future for Dennis Pitta (hip) is up in the air. We can't imagine Daniels getting a ton of money on the open market.

The Baltimore Ravens are working to restructure the contract of CB Lardarius Webb, who has a $12 million salary cap figure and $8 million base salary for 2015. Cutting Webb would create $10 million in dead money and save just $2 million.

The Baltimore Ravens are trying to restructure the contract of DT Haloti Ngata, as he heads into the final year of a five-year, $61 million deal.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the two sides can get something done here. Ngata carries a team-high $16 million salary cap figure and $8.5 million base salary.

  Ravens | Baltimore wants Justin Forsett back    Tue Feb 24, 04:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent RB Justin Forsett is a priority for the team to re-sign this offseason, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Footballguys view: We're fairly certain the two sides can work something out. Forsett was a breakthrough player for the Ravens in 2014, and he rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career.

  Ravens | Baltimore won't overpay for Torrey Smith    Tue Feb 24, 04:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith might command too much money on the open market for the Ravens to re-sign him, and general manager Ozzie Newsome said the team won't break the bank to keep him around.

Footballguys view: We just can't imagine teams lined up around the block ready to pay Smith a ton of money. It just makes a lot of sense if Smith sticks around with the Ravens in 2015.

  Ravens | Haloti Ngata receives offer    Tue Feb 24, 11:30 AM

Baltimore Ravens DT Haloti Ngata received a 'very good offer' from the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Ravens want to lessen Ngata's cap hit this year, so some form of extension would make sense. He's one of the best at his position, and his presence in the middle helps free up the playmakers behind him on defense. He's got a $16 million cap hit this year with $7.5 million in dead money.

  Ravens | Nothing definitive on Dennis Pitta    Wed Feb 18, 02:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has not heard anything definitive from doctors about getting cleared for football activities, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said the hip is healthy enough to live a great life, but football is unknown.

Footballguys view: Pitta's health status is a huge unknown at this time. We could see the Ravens make a move to add a tight end through the draft or free agency.

  Ravens | Tag unlikely for Torrey Smith    Tue Feb 17, 01:13 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith doesn't appear to be a candidate for the franchise tag, even though the Ravens would like to see him return.

Footballguys view: Smith is a favorite target of QB Joe Flacco, but he's not worth putting the franchise tag on. We have a feeling the two sides will work a deal out.

  Ravens | Antrell Rolle being courted by Ravens    Thu Feb 12, 04:56 PM

New York Giants impending free-agent FS Antrel Rolle is being campaigned to join the Baltimore Ravens by FS Will Hill, who is a close friend of Rolle.

Footballguys view: The two know themselves from their time together with the Giants. Rolle had a $9.2 million cap number last year, and he's set to hit free agency at the beginning of March.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta's status in question    Thu Feb 5, 10:41 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) is a question mark entering the 2015 season, and head coach John Harbaugh was noncommittal about Pitta's status a couple of weeks ago. The team will likely address the situation in the offseason because TE Crockett Gillmore is the only other tight end under contract.

Footballguys view: Pitta is a great tight end but the Ravens need to look past him with his status unclear. They could take a long look at what's around in free agency. Maybe they'll kick the tires on Julius Thomas? He is a tight end with tremendous upside, though what he can do without Peyton Manning is up for debate. Crockett Gillmore will be entering his second season in 2015, and he may get a chance to prove himself with a larger role.

  Ravens | Pernell McPhee unlikely to return    Thu Feb 5, 10:31 AM

Free-agent OLB/DE Pernell McPhee (Ravens) has likely priced himself out of the Baltimore Ravens' price range, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: In 2014, McPhee registered a career-high 27 tackles, 7.5 sacks and 35 quarterback hurries. According to Pro Football Focus, he was the league's second-best outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. He's looking at a major payday on the open market.

  NFL | Sean Mannion a backup in the pros?    Wed Feb 4, 07:47 PM

Greg Gabriel, from NationalFootballPost.com, believes that Oregon State QB Sean Mannion is unlikely to be a starter at the pro level.

Footballguys view: A team looking for a backup QB (like the Baltimore Ravens) could be looking at Mannion in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL draft. Mannion is huge (6'6" 229 pounds) and has a strong arm to make every throw in the NFL. He's a smart QB, but Mannion struggles to maneuver efficiently when avoiding pressure in the pocket. His lack of mobility and tendency to lock onto his initial target will give scouts plenty of pause when looking at his game film.

  Ravens | Terrence Cody officially released    Mon Feb 2, 02:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens DT Terrence Cody has been released Monday, Feb. 2. Cody is being investigate for animal cruelty.

Footballguys view: Today is the first day that players can be released, and the Ravens wasted no time washing their hands of Cody. He was the 57th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft, but Cody has never played up to his potential. He's now free to sign with any team, but we can't imagine the market will be even lukewarm for a big bodied defensive tackle who has been a career underachiever.

  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.

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.

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

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.

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.
