  Ravens | Dennis Pitta could become free agent    Wed Feb 22, 10:30 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta is due to make $5.5 million in each of the last two years of his contract, but there is speculation the team may not want to pay him that much despite the fact he is coming off a career-high 86-catch season, according to sources.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco could have highest cap figure    Wed Feb 22, 01:53 AM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco would become the player with the highest salary cap figure in the NFL for 2017 should Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo get cut or traded this offseason. Flacco is scheduled to count $24.55 million against the cap.

  Ravens | BAL could cut six    Mon Feb 20, 11:02 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil ($6 million), S Lardarius Webb ($5.5 million), CB Shareece Wright ($2.6 million) C Jeremy Zuttah ($2.3 million), CB Kyle Arrington ($2.1 million) and S Kendrick Lewis ($1.8 million) could be cut to create $20.3 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: The Ravens only have $15 million in cap space at this time, and that ranks among the lowest in the league. Freeing up $20 million extra would put them around the middle of the pack in the NFL, and it would give them a fighting chance with some of the better free agents out there.

  Ravens | Terrance West looking for 1,000 yards    Sat Feb 18, 05:54 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Terrance West said one of his goals for next season is to rush for at least 1,000 yards.

Footballguys view: West was close this past season. In 16 games with the Ravens, West rushed for 774 yards and five touchdowns. In 2017, West may lose more carries to Kenneth Dixon. It's going to be a battle to watch out for in training camp.

  Ravens | Baltimore unlikely to look at Victor Cruz    Sat Feb 18, 02:21 PM

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) probably will not be an option for the Baltimore Ravens this offseason unless he is willing to sign for the veteran minimum, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: The Ravens need an upgrade at the position, but they're likely to look for younger players in free agency or just add more WR talent in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Ravens | Baltimore made offer to Ricky Wagner    Mon Feb 13, 06:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent OT Ricky Wagner received a contract offer from the Ravens, but he declined the offer. Wagner is one of the free agents the Ravens would like to re-sign.

Footballguys view: Wagner had a bounce back season in 2016 after a poor performance in 2015. He's expected to get a deal in range of what Mitchell Schwartz (five-year, $33 million) got from the Chiefs last offseason.

  Ravens | Crockett Gillmore wants to play every down    Sun Feb 12, 05:39 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore said he wants to be an every down player for the Ravens next season even though they have five other tight ends on the roster.

Footballguys view: The position is jam-packed with the Ravens, and Gillmore may have some trouble standing out if everyone is healthy. Dennis Pitta, Ben Watson and Maxx Williams will be his primary competition in 2017.

  Ravens | Lardarius Webb may be on bubble    Fri Feb 10, 06:34 PM

  Ravens | C.J. Mosley should have option exercised    Wed Feb 8, 03:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB C.J. Mosley likely will have his fifth-year option picked up this offseason.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in 2014, Mosley has missed only two games in his pro career. The tackling machine will be under the control of the Ravens through the 2018 season with the fifth-year option in place.

  Ravens | Baltimore nearly traded up for Matt Ryan    Sun Feb 5, 07:38 PM

The Baltimore Ravens nearly had a deal in place to trade up for the No. 2 pick in the 2008 NFL Draft in order to select Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan, according to sources, but the deal fell through when Baltimore wouldn't include its 2009 second-round pick.

Footballguys view: The Ravens won a Super Bowl with Joe Flacco and they wouldn't have landed Ray Rice in the second round, but Ryan clearly would have been worth the 2008 picks if the trade had gone through. Chris Long ended up being a good player for the Rams, but he wasn't a franchise changer, so the Rams might have benefited from the deal too.

  Ravens | Brandon Marshall a fit in Baltimore?    Thu Feb 2, 09:25 PM

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall could be targeted by the Baltimore Ravens if Marshall is released because he is the type of veteran receiver general manager Ozzie Newsome has pursued in the past, according to beat writer Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: Marshall has said that he'll be a top five receiver next year, so that must mean he knows that he won't be a Jet. He won't be a top five receiver in Baltimore if Breshad Perriman and Mike Wallace play well and stay healthy, but he could fill the significant void left by Steve Smith.

  Ravens | Brandon Williams may accept small discount    Thu Feb 2, 02:34 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent DT Brandon Williams said he would be willing to accept a small discount from the Ravens as long as their offer is close to the other offers he receives in free agency. Williams said he knows what to expect from the Ravens, which would be a factor for him if the offers are similar.

Footballguys view: Williams is a huge body inside on the defensive line that almost any team that runs any front will need. Except when limited by cap issues, the Ravens have been very good at deciding when to let free agents go, getting the most compensatory draft picks of any team since that measure was instituted.

  Ravens | Torrey Smith may be option for Ravens    Thu Feb 2, 12:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith could be an option for the Baltimore Ravens if he is released by the 49ers this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: Smith has been a disastrous signing for the 49ers and a mess for fantasy since going to San Francisco. His dynasty owners should be rooting for a release. While he meshed well with Joe Flacco in the past, he would have to share targets with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman if he goes there now, so his fantasy outlook would only be slightly improved.

  Ravens | Crockett Gillmore had nightmare year    Wed Feb 1, 08:46 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (back, shoulders, hamstring) had multiple shoulder surgeries, a broken back and a torn hamstring in two places in 2016.

Footballguys view: Gillmore is a skilled receiver, but it seems like his body isn't going to hold up under the rigors of playing in the NFL. The Ravens have future opportunity at tight end, but they have 2015 second-round pick Maxx Williams and speedy wide receiver convert Darren Waller developing at the position too.

  Ravens | Baltimore wants Brandon Williams back    Sat Jan 28, 04:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free agent DT Brandon Williams is a player the team will try to re-sign this offseason since he one of the team's top defensive players, according to assistant general manager Eric DeCosta.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick for the Ravens in 2013, Williams is set to earn a big contract on the open market. In fact, if (when?) the Panthers franchise tag K.K. Short, Williams could be the best interior defender available. According to OverTheCap.com, the Ravens have the 5th-least amount of salary cap space ($15.3 million) entering the free agency period. Williams price tag is likely to get beyond their reach in a hurry.

  Ravens | Joe Flacco had problems on the road    Wed Jan 25, 06:15 PM

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw for 2,193 yards, six touchdowns and nine interceptions on the road this season. He threw for 2,124 yards, 14 touchdowns and six interceptions at home.

Footballguys view: The Ravens didn't have the greatest collection of targets for Flacco to throw to in 2016. If they do a good job of improving the receiving weapons around him, Flacco should have better home/road splits in 2017.

  Ravens | Kamalei Correa now viewed as ILB    Mon Jan 23, 12:21 PM

Baltimore Ravens LB Kamalei Correa was drafted last spring to be a 3-4 edge rusher, but the organization quickly moved him inside. He ended up playing only 49 snaps as a rookie in part because the coaches wanted him to show more physicality and a better feel for the defense, but he is now the early favorite to start opposite C.J. Mosley following Zach Orr's surprising retirement.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick out of Boise State in 2016, Correa has "see ball, get ball" traits as a linebacker. He's a smart player who diagnoses well as the play unfolds in front of him. Correa's aggressiveness can be used against him, and he'll overrun a play here or there because of it.

  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 | 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.

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.
