  Ravens | WR2 job wide open    Sat Jun 27, 04:15 PM

Garrett Downing, from BaltimoreRavens.com, reports the second wide receiver job for the Ravens is up for grabs in training camp. Marlon Brown, Kamar Aiken and rookie Breshad Perriman have all received first-team reps in minicamp opposite Steve Smith.

Footballguys view: Brown seems to be the frontrunner here, but he'll have to beat out the rest of the group to earn that job. Perriman is an interesting rookie to watch, and he's got better upside than Brown. We think Brown is better suited as a slot receiver.

  Ravens | Crockett Gillmore has solid offseason    Wed Jun 24, 04:40 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore showed an improved ability to catch passes in traffic this offseason and was one of the surprises during the offseason workouts. He is expected to compete for the starting tight end job during training camp.

Footballguys view: We like Gillmore as an all-purpose tight end. He's tough as nails and can work well as a blocker, but he's also a decent receiver who can make difficult catches. However, he's not the athlete that rookie Maxx Williams is. We expect Williams to eventually win the starting tight end job in Baltimore because he can fly down the field and creates mismatches every time he plays.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken has chemistry with QB    Wed Jun 24, 04:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken showed a very good chemistry with QB Joe Flacco during offseason workouts and will be a candidate for one of the starting wide receiver jobs during training camp.

Footballguys view: Steve Smith is still starting, but the other starter is up in the air after Torrey Smith bolted to the 49ers in free agency. Aiken could be that guy, but he'll have to prove himself in training camp. He'll have to beat out his old college teammate at UCF, Ravens 2015 first-round pick Breshad Perriman. We like Aiken, but we're putting our chips on Perriman to win the job.

  Ravens | BAL interested in Tarell Brown    Sun Jun 21, 04:50 PM

The Baltimore Ravens have expressed interest in free-agent CB Tarell Brown (Raiders), although no deal appears imminent, according to multiple league sources.

Footballguys view: Earlier this year, Brown met with the New England Patriots. The Ravens have Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb both starting at corner, but injuries at the position could quickly mount like they did last season. Brown is still on the open market largely because of durability concerns. He started 14 games last year for the Raiders while playing with a broken foot.

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley to be ready for training camp    Fri Jun 19, 02:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) said he'll be full-go once training camp begins.

Footballguys view: Mosley is recovering from wrist surgery and practiced in a limited capacity while wearing a brace during minicamp.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta not cleared    Fri Jun 19, 02:19 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was not medically cleared to practice in minicamp as he continues to recover from his second dislocated and fractured hip in as many years. Even if he's cleared, Pitta will need to decide for himself if he wants to continue playing.

Footballguys view: Pitta's career may be over. Fantasy owners should have moved on as the Ravens have. Rookie Maxx Williams should eventually be their top tight end.

  Ravens | Jeremy Butler a minicamp standout    Thu Jun 18, 08:28 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jeremy Butler showed the ability to create separation and work both the sidelines and the middle of the field Thursday, June 18, in the Ravens' final minicamp practice. 'Jeremy Butler, he might have had 1,500 yards in a three-day minicamp,' quarterback Joe Flacco said. 'He was incredible. He caught the ball extremely well. Little things here and there to work on, but the biggest thing is catching the ball ... He's just a big, strong body and catches the ball really well. It's exactly what he showed last year in training camp, I thought, and he's just coming out here and doing more of that,' said Flacco.

Footballguys view: Butler's coming through with a notable minicamp in Baltimore. An undrafted free agent from Tennessee-Martin in 2014, Butler spent his rookie season on Injured Reserve with a shoulder injury. He's obviously back--and in a big way. We'll see if he can make a push for the final roster in training camp. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues take note.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman has dropsies    Thu Jun 18, 08:26 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman dropped four passes in practice Tuesday, June 16, including a deep pass in which he was wide open for. He dropped eight passes in his final season in college. 'Just really paying attention, getting too tired and really not focusing,' Perriman said when asked for an explanation about the drops. 'I don't really make excuses for it. They should have been caught, but that's something that won't happen too often.'

Footballguys view: Well this isn't news...though it is disappointing. He can say it won't happen too often, that he was tired in OTAs--but how about last season at UCF? What happened there? This was a concern when he was selected at pick No. 26 by the Ravens. He has ability, but can he overcome his apparent lack of focus? His upside is what Kelvin Benjamin (who also had drop issues) did last season but right now we only feel comfortable calling him a WR4 or WR5.

  Ravens | Lardarius Webb could return punts    Wed Jun 17, 09:36 PM

Baltimore Ravens CB Lardarius Webb would like to be the team's primary punt returner this season, in addition to being a starting cornerback. He has previous experience returning punts but has been used mainly in a fair-catch role since the 2011 season. He was spotted catching punts in practice this week along with CB Asa Jackson and WRs DeAndre Carter and Steve Smith, although Smith is unlikely to be used in the role due to his importance to the offense. WR Michael Campanaro (quadriceps) is also in the mix, although he will be sidelined until training camp.

Footballguys view: Webb can be quite dangerous as a return man. In college at Nicholls State, Webb was the first player in conference history to win Player of the Week awards on offense, defense and special teams in the same week. There's no problem with him shagging kicks/punts for the Ravens today.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman impressing at OTAs    Wed Jun 10, 05:23 PM

Baltimore Ravens rookie WR Breshad Perriman has shown his deep speed, physical prowess, body control and explosiveness so far in organized team activities. Offensive coordinator Marc Trestman said Perriman has provided what the team saw on tape, adding that Perriman already has a good understanding of the game.

Footballguys view: Perriman is one of our favorite rookie receivers in this draft class. He's a fluid athlete who can take the top off the defense and win at the point of the catch. With Torrey Smith (49ers) moving on in free agency, the Ravens need to find an impact receiver to start opposite Steve Smith in 2015.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco may rework deal soon    Sun Jun 7, 09:39 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco may be asked to restructure his contract in the near future because his salary cap figure for 2016 will be $28.5 million.

Footballguys view: We could see some movement on this sometime before that number hits. There's no rush now, and we don't envision any scenario where this turns sour. The Ravens love having Flacco as their leader, and any sort of restructuring should be worked out smoothly.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett to catch more passes?    Thu Jun 4, 04:28 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett could see an increased role in the passing game under new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. Forsett said he's excited about being used more as a receiver and is making sure his route-running is up to part so he can be ready for when he's called upon in that area.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners take note here. Last season under Trestman, Bears RB Matt Forte was targeted 130 times and caught 102 passes. We're not projecting quite that many for Forsett, but if he caught 60 passes in 2015 it would not come as any surprise.

  Ravens | BAL not counting Dennis Pitta out    Thu Jun 4, 02:55 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) has been able to some things during organized team activities, and head coach John Harbaugh is not ruling out Pitta playing in 2015. 'Dennis is out there for about half the practice and he's doing a good job, too, so we're not counting him out at all,' Harbaugh said. It is not known if Pitta will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Pitta's career may be over, but it's not time to say that just yet. We think he starts training camp on the PUP list where he can return at any time. It will be up to him to prove that he's healthy enough to come back when the regular season starts. At this time, we feel rookie Maxx Williams is the top tight end for the Ravens.

  Ravens | Kamar Aiken works with first team    Thu Jun 4, 01:27 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken worked opposite WR Steve Smith Sr. with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, June 3, during organized team activities (OTAs). He made several impressive catches.

Footballguys view: We expect rookie Breshad Perriman to win this job, but he has some question marks in his game. Aiken has been OK as a guy who steps in for specific packages and has the speed and height for something more. This is one to keep an eye on.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett expects bigger role    Wed Jun 3, 09:40 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett expects to have a bigger role in the passing game in 2015. "I was a third down back in the past. That's how I got my start was being a third down back, picking up blitzes, running screens and routes out of the backfield." Forsett said. "I haven't spent much extra time running routes because outside of last year, I have always been used that way. I am ready for it," said Forsett.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick by the Seahawks in 2008, Forsett is an older back but there's little mileage on him as he was only a feature back for one season as a pro. Last year, Forsett finished the season as the 8th-best fantasy back. This year, he could finish with another top-10 season.

  Ravens | Aldrick Robinson injury update    Wed Jun 3, 02:02 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Aldrick Robinson (knee) is believed to be dealing with a sprained medial collateral ligament. He likely will be sidelined until the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Robinson is on the roster bubble with the Ravens, and this injury doesn't help. He's getting a fresh start in Baltimore after getting released by Washington in December. We'll see if he can get healthy, stay healthy and impress enough in training camp to make the roster as a return man.

  Ravens | Aldrick Robinson injures knee    Tue Jun 2, 11:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Aldrick Robinson (knee) suffered a sprained knee during organized team activities (OTAs), according to a source. More tests will be conducted to determine the severity of his injury.

Footballguys view: Robinson is getting a fresh start with the Ravens after being released by Washington last December. If this injury keeps him out of camp for awhile, then his chances of making the final roster go from slim to none.

  Ravens | Jimmy Smith ahead of schedule    Mon Jun 1, 08:24 AM

Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (foot) competed aggressively in organized team activities last week, and he looked ahead of schedule following season-ending foot surgery. 'He's not full speed, he's out there working hard,' head coach John Harbaugh said. 'He's probably ahead of schedule.'

Footballguys view: Smith underwent surgery last November, and it looks like he'll be ready to rock in training camp. The language of the NFL is money, so it's telling that the Ravens signed Smith to a four-year extension earlier in 2015. Smith's $41 million deal included a $13 million signing bonus, $20 million guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $10.2 million.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta moving well    Mon Jun 1, 08:24 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) caught balls on the sidelines and was moving well in organized team activities last week. He was limited to individual work.

Footballguys view: Pitta is fighting back from this hip injury that could end up being career ending. The Ravens are hopeful Pitta can return, but they're not counting on it. That's why they drafted Maxx Williams (Minnesota) this year in the second round. Williams is going to compete with second-year pro Crockett Gillmore to be the team's leading tight end.

  Ravens | Gillmore the starting tight end?    Sun May 31, 06:43 PM

Jamison Hensley, from ESPN.com, makes an educated guess that second-year pro Crockett Gillmore will be the Baltimore Ravens starting tight end to begin the regular season.

Footballguys view: Gillmore is going to compete with rookie tight end Maxx Williams for the starting job. The second-round pick reminds us of a young Jason Witten (Cowboys) because of his soft hands and run-after-the-catch ability. Gillmore is a decent all-purpose tight end, but he's nowhere near the athlete that Williams is. We'll see these two battle it out in training camp.

  Ravens | Steve Smith could sing swan song    Fri May 29, 11:48 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith could be entering his final season at the age of 36 in 2015. Smith signed a three-year deal with the team in 2014 and planned to play at least two of those years. He left it open for playing another season beyond this one. 'I really don't have the family structure to chase 40, to be honest,' Smith said. 'I have got a lot of things on my to-do list that don't have anything to do with football. I'm going to take it day by day, but I will not be playing until I'm 40.'

Footballguys view: He can't play forever, and Smith's final season could certainly be this year. Smith could see his snaps drop this season, because the team wants to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Fantasy owners should consider him a mid-range WR3 in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Michael Campanaro update    Thu May 28, 08:51 AM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (leg) suffered a partially torn quadriceps muscle, according to MRI results, Wednesday, May 27. He is expected to play in 2015 and should be able to return in time for training camp after rehabilitating the injury. A complete tear would have required surgery and cost him the entire season. Campanaro is expected to see increased playing time in 2015.

Footballguys view: Campanaro will primarily be returning kicks again this year. While prior to the NFL Draft, it looked as though the departure of Torrey Smith might open up some targets for Campanaro, drafting Breshad Perriman might have put a stop to that. Perriman has trouble with drops though, and Marlon Brown isn't a sure thing either, so if Campanaro can get healthy by camp he might still have a shot to reel in some catches.

  Ravens | Michael Campanaro injured    Wed May 27, 06:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (quadriceps) injured his quadriceps during organized team activities Tuesday, May 26.

  Ravens | Baltimore's No. 2 RB job up for grabs    Wed May 27, 02:17 PM

Baltimore Ravens RBs Lorenzo Taliaferro and rookie Javorius Allen will battle for the Ravens' backup running back position this offseason, playing behind RB Justin Forsett. The role could end up being shared, according to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Buck Allen is an interesting rookie to watch in dynasty leagues. At 220 pounds, Allen can make cuts crisply to get to the open field. He's got some elusiveness in the open field, and Allen can make big plays as a receiver out of the backfield. He's not as powerful as Taliaferro, but Allen could be the better backup or spot starter (if needed) for the Ravens.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams to play major role?    Sat May 23, 11:37 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams is expected to take over the role that TE Owen Daniels filled last season.

Footballguys view: Williams was (by far) our favorite tight end in this rookie class. He has a skill set similar to that of a young Jason Witten (Cowboys), and Williams will be able to attack the middle seam of the defense. He's a big target who knows how to use his body to box out smaller defenders and he puts up a helluva fight for the ball. Williams has soft hands, good concentration and can be a reliable target for Joe Flacco from day one.

  Ravens | Steve Smith may see less snaps    Tue May 19, 09:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith could see his snaps drop this season, because the team wants to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Smith needs to keep making an impact as the season goes on. Last year, Smith had four 100-yard receiving games over the first six weeks. After that, he had no games over 90-yards receiving. He's the WR1 for the Ravens, and rookie Breshad Perriman should be the team's starter opposite of Smith. His current ADP is WR33 (7.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Javorius Allen showing promise for BAL    Mon May 18, 01:46 PM

Baltimore Ravens rookie RB Javorius Allen has caught the eye of the Raven's coaching staff with his work in the passing game during rookie minicamp this offseason.

Footballguys view: This should come as a surprise to no one. He averaged 11.3 yards per catch over the last two seasons in college at USC. Allen has good lateral agility and can create on his own in the open field. He'll work his way onto the field as a change-of-pace back for the Ravens behind Justin Forsett.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta likely to start on PUP    Sat May 16, 07:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will likely begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Pitta's hip injury could be career-ending, but he's working on the road to recovery at this time. The Ravens aren't counting on him, and that's why they drafted Maxx Williams in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta optimistic    Sat May 16, 10:40 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he is feeling good and is optimistic about playing in 2015. He has been participating in offseason workouts and is allowed to run and cut. Pitta has also been running routes and catching patches during practice.

Footballguys view: We're not as optimistic about Pitta's return. The hip problem he has could be career-threatening, and the Ravens have prepared for a future without him by selecting Maxx Williams in the 2015 NFL draft. Fantasy owners should not be expecting a comeback here, but make sure to watch his progress.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman making impression    Thu May 14, 07:51 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is already being lauded by QB Joe Flacco. 'He looks really good. He looks big, powerful, runs well,' Flacco said. 'He looks like he has big, strong hands. He snatches the ball out of the air.'

Footballguys view: Perriman was plagued by drops at Central Florida, so let's slow our roll until we see him against some cornerbacks with some contact. Yes he snatches the ball out of the air, but he dropped a lot of those balls afterwards when corners got involved. Right now his ADP is 12.06, and he has a good quarterback who needs a playmaker in Joe Flacco. We just need to see him under live fire.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams to make RZ impact?    Wed May 13, 06:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams is expected to make an impact right away on third down and in the red zone, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Footballguys view: We consider Williams a star in the making. He reminds us of a young Jason Witten (Cowboys) because of his smooth athleticism, soft hands and fearlessness running routes over the middle. The Ravens needed a TE1 with Owen Daniels (Broncos) moving on in free agency. Williams can be considered a TE2 with TE1 upside for fantasy owners. His current ADP is TE16 (12.12) in 12-team PPR leagues...but we expect this to rise as the season gets closer.

  Ravens | Kyle Arrington may be a target    Wed May 13, 01:05 PM

Free-agent CB Kyle Arrington (Patriots) is receiving interest from the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Arrington could return to the Patriots at a smaller salary, but there will be other teams out there (like Baltimore) willing to take a chance on the veteran. The need at corner is there for the Ravens...and not just as a slot corner behind Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Webb is coming off a disappointing 2014, and Smith is recovering from Lisfranc surgery. If he's added, there's a chance Arrington could end up playing significant snaps for the Ravens in 2015.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman signs with BAL    Mon May 11, 04:47 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman signed to an undisclosed contract Monday, May 11.

Footballguys view: Perriman is a big, fast receiver who can get off the line of scrimmage quickly and cleanly. He does a good job of tracking deep passes and should give the Ravens a fine starter opposite Steve Smith.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams agrees to terms with BAL    Thu May 7, 05:12 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams agreed to an undisclosed deal Thursday, May 7, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Think of a young Jason Witten (Cowboys) when considering what Williams could be at the pro level. He's a smooth athlete who can run away from linebackers over the middle. Williams has soft hands and plays with a nasty attitude. He's not a seam-ripper, but he can step in and start--and star--for the Ravens from day one. Fantasy owners should consider Williams a TE2 who could quickly become an every week starter as a TE1 in 2015.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett firmly grasping role    Tue May 5, 10:47 AM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett has a firm grip on the lead running back role after the Ravens waited until the fourth round to select RB Javorius Allen in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Forsett can once again lead the way for the Ravens on the ground. Javorius (better known as 'Buck') Allen is more of a determined power back between the tackles with little creativity or big-play ability.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta not in Ravens' future?    Mon May 4, 05:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) may have an unclear future in Baltimore if he is even able to play next season. TE Maxx Williams was selected in the second round and is primed to take over Pitta's role if necessary.

Footballguys view: When the Ravens selected Williams, it was a sign that Pitta could be done in the NFL. The hip injury he suffered is career threatening, and there's no guarantee that he ever plays football again. Williams was our favorite tight end in this year's draft, and he plays like a young Jason Witten (Cowboys).

  Ravens | BAL adds Maxx Williams in Round 2    Fri May 1, 09:03 PM

The Baltimore Ravens selected University of Minnesota TE Maxx Williams in Round 2 (No. 55 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Dennis Pitta struggles to stay healthy, and Williams could be replacing him. A 'move' tight end, Williams could be a nice addition to an offense which lost Torry Smith this offseason.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman could start as rookie    Thu Apr 30, 11:49 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman could immediately compete for a starting spot as a rookie.

Footballguys view: We could see that. Perriman has the deep speed to stretch the field and get on top of the defense. He could easily win the starting job because of his size/speed combination. The Ravens are looking for a starter opposite Steve Smith since losing Torrey Smith (49ers) in free agency.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman lands in Baltimore    Thu Apr 30, 10:55 PM

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman was selected 26th overall by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30.

Footballguys view: We like this fit. Perriman is a big receiver who can get off the line quickly. He has the speed to take the top off the defense, and he can tracks passes with ease over his shoulder.


  Ravens | Fitzgerald Toussaint signs tender    Wed Apr 29, 05:17 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Fitzgerald Toussaint signed his exclusive-rights tender Wednesday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Ravens are likely to draft a running back and push Toussaint to the roster bubble unless he can challenge Lorenzo Taliaferro for a third running back spot.


  Ravens | Clive Walford visited    Mon Apr 27, 02:24 AM

Miami TE Clive Walford visited the Baltimore Ravens last week before the deadline for 2015 NFL Draft visits passed.

Footballguys view: The future of Dennis Pitta is still very much up in the air. The Ravens will likely address the position at some point in the draft even though they drafted Crockett Gillmore last year. Walford is the second-best tight end in this draft class, and he can make insane catches seem routine. He can line up wide or attack the deep seam of a defense, and Walford creates mismatches because of his athleticism and catch radius. We think he's a second-round pick.

  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 | 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.

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.
