  Ravens | Joe Flacco happy that OC will return    Thu Jan 19, 01:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he has a great working relationship with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and is happy that Mornhinweg will return next season. Flacco threw for 3,035 yards, 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions under Mornhinweg in 2016.

Footballguys view: It was a shaky season for Flacco, so he's more happy than we are about it. The Ravens need to get him some more dynamic receivers...especially with Steve Smith retiring.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta may be asked to rework deal    Wed Jan 18, 06:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because of his high salary cap figure for 2017.

Footballguys view: Pitta has a cap number of $7.7 million in 2017, and there's $4.4 million remaining in dead money. He led the league in receptions for TEs (86) this year, but Pitta's production does not match that price tag. We'll see if something gets reworked between the two sides.

  Ravens | Kyle Juszczyk set to become free agent    Sun Jan 15, 06:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens FB Kyle Juszczyk will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: The demand for fullbacks just isn't that high. The Ravens should be able to keep Juszczyk for a good price if they want.

  Ravens | Terrance West to be a RFA    Wed Jan 11, 07:57 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West will be a restricted free-agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: West should get a low tender, likely original round tender, when the Ravens are able to designate that in March. He's an average back who was on the fantasy radar this year early due to opportunity but West faded late as rookie Kenneth Dixon did more in that backfield.

  Ravens | Could Steve Smith return?    Wed Jan 11, 11:28 AM

Recently retired Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith isn't being ruled out for a return in 2017, according to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti. 'I haven't given up hope that (he) is going to come walking in here in September,' Bisciotti said. 'We'll see about that character. I wouldn't count him out.'

Footballguys view: Never say never in the NFL. Smith has a fire that burns hot, and he'll likely miss the grind of the league. He retired to spend more time with his family, and that may be what keeps him from returning. Either way, it's been a great run for Smith and we expect to see him in Canton some day.

  Ravens | Terrell Suggs expected to return in '17    Tue Jan 10, 10:41 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs is expected to return for the 2017 season, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Footballguys view: Suggs can still get it done in the NFL. He had eight sacks this year in 15 games with the Ravens, bringing his career total to 113.5. A top-10 pick in the 2003 NFL draft, Suggs has been a cornerstone of the Ravens ferocious defense for years. He's got a cap hit of $6.9 million each of the next two seasons.

  Ravens | Baltimore expects more from Joe Flacco    Tue Jan 10, 01:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco passed for a career-high 4,317 yards in 2016 but finished with only 20 touchdowns (versus 15 interceptions) despite a career-high 672 attempts.

Footballguys view: The Ravens can expect more, but they need to put better receivers around him if they want better results. They could also add a speedy running back to the mix as a receiver out of the backfield. The Ravens should make the changes necessary to help Flacco in 2017. If the line is 20 touchdowns, we'll take the over for Flacco next season.

  Ravens | Baltimore wants to add big-play RB    Mon Jan 9, 12:03 PM

Baltimore Ravens RBs Kenneth Dixon and Terrance West appear to be on solid footing with the team, but head coach John Harbaugh hinted the Ravens will be interested in adding a player to the mix that could help them improve on the seven 20-yard plays (six runs, one reception) his backs created in 2016.

Footballguys view: This is a great running back draft class, and the Ravens will have plenty of choices. They could wait until the fourth round and still potentially add a playmaker like San Diego State's Donnel Pumphrey. He's not built to be a full-time running back in the NFL, but Pumphrey can score anytime he touches the ball.

  Ravens | Elvis Dumervil unlikely to return    Fri Jan 6, 11:38 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil is unlikely to return to the team in 2017, in the opinion of beat writer Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: The Ravens get $6 million off the books if they release Dumervil. In the last two years, Dumervil only has nine sacks and he's battled to stay healthy. A foot injury slowed him down this year, limiting Dumervil to just eight games. He'll be 33 years old when the season starts, and he's clearly not quite the player he used to be, but we feel Dumervil would get interest if on the open market.

  Ravens | Steve Smith hangs up cleats    Fri Jan 6, 09:52 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith announced his retirement Friday, Jan. 6.

Footballguys view: What a joy it's been to watch Smith in the pros. A third-round pick out of Utah in 2003, Smith played with fire and intensity that was rarely outdone on the football field. A smaller receiver, Smith never backed down from a challenge and made some big time catches in clutch moments. He finishes his Hall of Fame career with 1,031 catches, 14,731 receiving yards and 81 touchdowns.

  Ravens | BAL hopes Breshad Perriman can be No. 1 WR    Thu Jan 5, 02:45 PM

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens hope WR Breshad Perriman can become a No. 1 receiver in the future. Harbaugh said there are signs that Perriman can be a top receiver but he still has work to do before reaching that point.

Footballguys view: The Ravens need a big time receiver to help Joe Flacco out, and if Perriman can be that guy, this is a team which will be in the thick of it next year. Harbaugh loves his upside but admits he is a work in progress. "You see the radius, and you see the speed. Here's a guy that has a chance. Now he's got to refine his route running, he's got to find his hands to catch them and just become a really good all-around receiver. This is his first year of practicing. He didn't even have training camp. So to me, there's a lot of upside there." Now Perriman just has to fulfill that promise.

  Ravens | Baltimore inks six from practice squad    Wed Jan 4, 12:04 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Dustin Vaughan, WR Kenny Bell, RB Stephen Houston, OL Jarell Broxton, OL Jarrod Pughsley and OL Matt Skura were signed to reserve/future contracts Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: Bell is the most interesting player to watch here. Things didn't work out for him with the Bucs due to first injury and then inconsistency. However, the raw skill set he had coming out of Nebraska is still there. Bell can snare the ball in difficult situations and has the body control to stay inbounds. We'll see if he can stay healthy and impress with the Ravens in 2017.

  Ravens | Mike Wallace held in check    Sun Jan 1, 04:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace caught four passes for 33 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Wallace finishes with 1017 yards in what has to considered a success after he looked done in Minnesota last year. The Ravens have 4.75 million dollar club option next year, and they might have seen enough from Wallace this year to exercise it.

  Ravens | Steve Smith finishes with 34 yards    Sun Jan 1, 04:47 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught three passes for 34 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Smith had a quiet last game in the NFL, but he's a Hall of Fame consideration and a player that many will be compared to in the future. He defied expectations to be relevant in fantasy leagues one last time after his achilles was described as "raw shredded chicken" after a double rupture ended his 2015.

  Ravens | Breshad Perriman catches four passes    Sun Jan 1, 04:42 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Breshad Perriman caught four passes for 62 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Perriman should have a chance to start next year with Steve Smith heading to retirement. He was able to stay healthy this year and provide the vertical element the Ravens sought when they took him in the first round of the 2015 draft.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta has another strong game    Sun Jan 1, 04:35 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta caught 11 passes for 91 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Pitta's 2016 was inspiring, as his second hip fracture was supposed to end his career. He is still under contract next year, but could be released as his 5.5 million dollar salary will be hard to justify.

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon rushed for 44 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17. He also caught three passes for 19 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Dixon failed to separate from Terrance West during the season, but the rookie entered the campaign injured. He should have a real chance to be the #1 next season, but Terrance West is a restricted free agent and should be back.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco throws for 267 yards    Sun Jan 1, 03:59 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco went 32-for-49 for 267 yards and one interception against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Flacco will finish as one of the top two passers in terms of attempts, but he failed to put up top 15 fantasy numbers over the course of the season. He'll be on the fringe of draftable fantasy quarterbacks next season.

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is not expected to remain in his current post at the end of the season, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: If that's the case, the Ravens have burned through two offensive coordinators since Gary Kubiak (2014) moved on to be the head coach for the Broncos. Any coach they hire will have to find a way to properly use the talent already on the offense.

  Ravens | Vince Mayle claimed off waivers    Sat Dec 31, 10:04 AM

The Baltimore Ravens have claimed WR Vince Mayle off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick (Browns) out of Washington State in 2015, Mayle has bounced around the league during his brief time in the pros. A former basketball player, Mayle has good athleticism on passes that go 'above the rim.' However, he's known to drop way too many passes and is not adept at beating press coverage at the line of scrimmage. He's a developmental prospect for the Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens WR Keenan Reynolds will be promoted from the practice squad Friday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: A converted QB from Navy, Reynolds has been on the Ravens practice squad all year long. He struggled with drops in camp, and Reynolds recorded only one catch in the preseason. He's a developmental player with the athleticism and toughness to become a solid contributor if he hits.

  Ravens | Steve Smith will retire after season    Wed Dec 28, 04:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith announced Wednesday, Dec. 28, that he will retire at the end of the regular season.

Footballguys view: This is a bummer. We were hoping that after a disappointing season for the Ravens, Smith would come back for one more year. A third-round pick in 2001, Smith has over 1,000 receptions and over 14,000 receiving yards. In his final game on Sunday, we expect the Ravens to feature Smith early and often.
