  Ravens | Baltimore attempting to rebuild offense    Tue Feb 19, 09:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is expected to be the focal point of an offense that is undergoing a 'reimagining,' according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. 'We're really looking at this as a completely new beginning as if we were a new staff. I think we have run an offense here that has been kind of morphed over the years, and we really want to start fresh, start new, and (with) everything from our language, our formations, how we do everything, rebuild the thing from the ground up. That's one angle. The other angle is really, how do we want to move forward with Lamar Jackson? He's a unique player with a unique skill set, so let's build an offense that really accommodates that, as opposed to try to fit him into something that other people had once done,' Roman told The Athletic.

  Ravens | Hayden Hurst at full health    Tue Feb 19, 04:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is fully healthy again after a screw was recently removed from the foot he fractured last August.

Footballguys view: The 2018 first-round pick wasn't able to make much of an impact as a rookie. Hurst was able to play in 12 games in his rookie year and caught only 13 passes for 163 yards and one touchdown. The Ravens have a run-heavy offense with QB Lamar Jackson running the show, so Fantasy GMs should not expect much from Hurst outside of TE2 levels of production in 2019.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley likely to get deal done soon    Tue Feb 19, 12:03 AM

Impending free-agent LB C.J. Mosley and the Baltimore Ravens are reportedly optimistic they will agree to a long-term contract before the March 5 deadline for franchise tags, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley could be tag option    Sat Feb 16, 03:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent LB C.J. Mosley could receive the franchise tag this offseason if he does not receive a long-term deal, in the opinion of NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Footballguys view: Mosley is going to be one of the most coveted free agents out there. The Ravens should work on getting him a long-term deal and have the tag to keep him if they need to use that option. A team like Denver would pay a ton of money to add a talent like Mosley on the open market.

  Ravens | Baltimore to receive fourth-round pick from Denver    Wed Feb 13, 03:14 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco was traded by the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for the 11th pick in the fourth round (106 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are moving forward with Lamar Jackson as their starting quarterback, and that was incredibly evident after Flacco was hurt and they changed the structure of the offense to accommodate Jackson.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco headed to Denver    Wed Feb 13, 11:20 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is part of a trade agreed upon with the Denver Broncos Wednesday, Feb. 13. The package going to Baltimore is unknown, and the deal can't become official until March 13.

Footballguys view: The Ravens didn't want to just release Flacco and get nothing for him. They wanted to facilitate a trade and the Broncos were willing partners. Flacco was beat up last year and only made it through nine games with a hip injury. He was healthy enough to return for the playoffs, but the team decided to stick with their QB of the future Lamar Jackson.

  Ravens | Mark Ingram a fit in Baltimore?    Sat Feb 9, 01:51 AM

The Baltimore Ravens could attempt to sign New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram in free agency, in the opinion of ESPN's Jamison Hensley, who thinks Ingram's durability and physicality make him a perfect fit for the Ravens' offense.

Footballguys view: Ingram is a hard-nosed running back who can grind down an opponent. That sounds exactly like the type of back the Ravens covet. With Alex Collins likely gone this offseason, the Ravens may be looking for another back to put in the mix with guys like Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon.

  Ravens | Alex Collins may be let go    Fri Feb 8, 05:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent RB Alex Collins may not be retained this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: After his breakout season in 2017, Collins followed that up with a disappointing year in 2018. He made it through 10 games banged up and averaged only 3.6 yards per carry. The Ravens have guys like Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon to tote the rock if they don't keep Collins.

  Ravens | John Brown may not return    Fri Feb 8, 05:22 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown probably will not re-sign with the Ravens this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: We think Brown ends up with the Buccaneers and his former coach with the Cardinals, Bruce Arians. His speed would be a great asset for that team and replace DeSean Jackson (the Bucs are expected to move on from him this offseason).

  Ravens | Will Lamar Jackson attract free agents?    Fri Feb 8, 12:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will draw free agents to the team, general manager Eric DeCosta said Wednesday, Feb. 6, and not just because his salary-cap hit, which will be $24 million less than what's due to departing QB Joe Flacco. 'I think players respect talent,' DeCosta said. 'I think players respect athletes and competitors. Anyone can watch Lamar Jackson and see how talented he is and what kind of a competitor he is. Players also want to win, and I think that's something that drives every professional athlete -- winning games. I think they'll recognize that about us. When they watch us play, they'll want to play here.'

Footballguys view: Jackson is an exciting young quarterback, and the Ravens look poised to open a Super Bowl window. He could attract free agents, but attracting wide receivers may be difficult due to his limitations as a passer and the team's run-heavy scheme.

  Ravens | Devin Funchess an option for Baltimore?    Thu Feb 7, 10:24 PM

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent WR Devin Funchess could be an option for the Baltimore Ravens because his size would allow him to be an effective blocker when QB Lamar Jackson scrambles, according to Clifton Brown of BaltimoreRavens.com.

Footballguys view: With the Super Bowl over, let the free agency speculation begin! Funchess had a disappointing year with the Panthers in 2018. He only caught 44 passes in 14 games, scored only one touchdown and failed to go over 100 yards receiving in any contest. We'll see if a fresh start helps him play better. If that fresh start is in Baltimore it might mean a lot of blocking and not crushing numbers as a receiver.

  Ravens | Kenneth Dixon effective in limited role    Sat Feb 2, 11:04 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon logged 60 rushing attempts in six games in 2018, and his 5.6 yards per carry were the most among Baltimore's running backs.

  Ravens | Za'Darius Smith's future with team uncertain    Wed Jan 30, 08:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent DE/LB Za'Darius Smith is a player that the Ravens are interested in re-signing this offseason, but general manager Eric DeCosta said Smith's future with the team will depend on the offers he receives in free agency.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley could see franchise tag    Wed Jan 30, 11:31 AM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent LB C.J. Mosley could receive the franchise tag as general manager Eric DeCosta said: 'everything is on the table to make sure he's back on the team.'

Footballguys view: Mosley saved the season when he picked off Baker Mayfield and there's no price tag that can equal that. He deserves to be one of the highest paid linebackers in the league.

  Ravens | David Culley joins Baltimore staff    Tue Jan 29, 12:23 PM

David Culley (Bills) was hired Tuesday, Jan. 29, as the Baltimore Ravens' assistant head coach/wide receivers coach and passing coordinator.

Footballguys view: Greg Roman was promoted to offensive coordinator, but Culley also got a promotion here from his quarterback coach position with Buffalo. The Bills will be looking for a new mentor for Josh Allen while Culley rejoins Harbaugh after the long time they have spent together under Andy Reid with the Eagles in past jobs.

  Ravens | John Brown struggled with Lamar Jackson    Mon Jan 28, 07:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown caught only eight passes for 114 yards and one touchdown in seven games when QB Lamar Jackson took over the starting job. Brown recorded 34 catches for 601 yards and four touchdowns in nine games with QB Joe Flacco. Brown said he is open to returning to the Ravens but would expect things to change if he re-signed.

Footballguys view: Brown will be a great sleeper in drafts with his final numbers hiding how productive he was before Jackson took over. He should be starting somewhere next season, and depending on his destination be even more productive than he was with Flacco.

  Ravens | John Brown wants for deep shots    Sat Jan 26, 11:35 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown remains open to re-signing with Baltimore, but he said he would like to be in an offense that takes more shots downfield.

Footballguys view: Brown could also rejoin Bruce Arians in Tampa Bay in a move that makes a lot of sense if Desean Jackson is gone. Really Brown could fit in any offense, and teams like the Colts and Raiders could also make a run at him.

  Ravens | Coach mentions two options at QB    Fri Jan 25, 06:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent QB Robert Griffin III and Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor are possible backup options for the Ravens next season, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: With Joe Flacco likely cut or traded, the Ravens are moving forward with Lamar Jackson as their starter. That means they'll be in the market for a backup. Harbaugh said the team will want the quarterbacks to play a similar style to Jackson.

  Ravens | Lamar Jackson expected to hire throwing coach    Fri Jan 25, 12:33 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will 'throw a lot' this offseason, according to head coach John Harbaugh, who expects Jackson to 'come back a better quarterback skill-wise than when he left.' Harbaugh told The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec that Jackson will ultimately decide who he will work with but suggested he'll be working with a throwing coach.

Footballguys view: Jackson needs the work as a passer. We'll be monitoring his progress as the offseason rolls on, but there should be an expectation for him to get better when throwing the ball. Jackson has QB1 upside for Fantasy GMs because of his incredible skill as a runner.

  Ravens | Coach says Joe Flacco's value is high    Fri Jan 25, 12:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is expected to part ways with the Ravens this offseason, and ideally the Ravens would like to find a trade partner to acquire the veteran quarterback. To that end, head coach John Harbaugh said Flacco's 'value is high' in a news conference Friday, Jan. 26, and added he can be 'one of the best' in the league if he's protected well and playing with suitable weapons on offense.

Footballguys view: We just don't see any team trading for Flacco. Everyone knows the Ravens are moving on with Lamar Jackson and they will release Flacco sometime this offseason. Any team interested in the strong-armed veteran would just wait for him to be signed free and clear without surrendering any compensation.

  Ravens | John Harbaugh signs extension    Thu Jan 24, 04:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh officially signed a four-year contract extension Thursday, Jan. 24. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Things change quickly around here. It wasn't that long ago during the 2018 season that Harbaugh was thought to be on the hot seat. Now, he gets a contract extension largely due to the Ravens postseason run this last season (after missing the playoffs for three years in a row). We'll see if Harbaugh can get the best out of young quarterback Lamar Jackson while still putting together a great defense.

  Ravens | Baltimore to part ways with Michael Crabtree?    Tue Jan 22, 11:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree is likely to be released in the offseason, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: Crabtree is currently signed through the 2020 season. He's got a cap hit of $9.3 million in 2019 with $4.6 million remaining in dead money. The Ravens might take that hit just to move on from the veteran receiver.

  Ravens | Possible homecoming for Tyrod Taylor?    Fri Jan 18, 08:04 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor could consider the Baltimore Ravens a potential landing spot in free agency this offseason, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are moving forward with Lamar Jackson as their starter and finding a quarterback with a similar skill set (like Taylor) would be paramount. Taylor made his only Pro Bowl in 2015 when new Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman called the plays with the Buffalo Bills, and Taylor spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with Baltimore before leaving for Buffalo in 2015.

  Ravens | Tyrod Taylor an option for Ravens?    Fri Jan 18, 03:18 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor could be an option for the Baltimore Ravens this offseason as a backup to QB Lamar Jackson, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: We could see that happening if the Ravens don't want Robert Griffin III back as the no.2 quarterback behind Jackson. Taylor had one of his better seasons when offensive coordinator Greg Roman was calling plays for him with the Buffalo Bills.

Baltimore Ravens senior assistant and tight ends coach Greg Roman will take over as offensive coordinator, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: They have replaced Marty Mornhinweg as the offensive coordinator and go with Roman in that spot. He'll be in charge of getting the most out of Lamar Jackson and the Ravens run-heavy attack. Roman has been an offensive coordinator before in the NFL with the 49ers and the Bills.

Baltimore Ravens OG Kofi Amichia, OT Randin Crecelius, CB Robertson Daniel, RB Tyler Ervin, FB Christopher Ezeala, S Bennett Jackson, LB Alvin Jones and TE Nick Keizer were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Tuesday, Jan. 8.

Footballguys view: Ervin is a dangerous return man and lightning quick change-of-pace back. He's mainly been with the Texans since coming into the league as a fourth-round pick out of San Jose State in the 2016 NFL draft. Ervin is only worth monitoring in the deepest of deep dynasty leagues.

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown said he is interested in re-signing with the Ravens this offseason.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Ravens have any interest in keeping Brown in town. He signed a one-year deal last March with Baltimore and finished this season with 42 catches for 715 yards and five touchdowns. Brown said he probably will look for a multi-year deal during free agency.

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent QB Robert Griffin III said he would like to return to the Ravens next season.

  Ravens | Terrell Suggs still wants to play    Sun Jan 6, 07:34 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent LB Terrell Suggs said he still wants to play next season and understands that he may not be with the Ravens.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick of the Ravens all the way back in the 2003 NFL draft, Suggs is not quite the player he used to be. That being said, he still registered 7.0 sacks in 2018 and can play more than a part-time role. Suggs should have quite a bit of interest on the open market if the Ravens don't work to get him back.
