ESPN's Jamison Hensley considers the Ravens a potential fit for free agent Jimmy Graham.

Baltimore was forced to rely on a 37-year-old Ben Watson last season, so Graham would be an upgrade to an offense that ranked near the bottom of the league in passing. With Watson a free agent and considering retirement, the Ravens make sense as a landing spot given their lack of a supporting cast for Joe Flacco. Graham's big play ability dropped off in 2017 (9.1 YPC), but he remained one of the best red-zone threats in the league.

Free agent Ryan Nassib worked out for the Ravens.

Nassib lasted only a month with Jacksonville before finishing 2017 out of the league. The 27-year-old will try to resurface on a reserve/future deal.
Jan 31 - 5:11 PM

According to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec, the Ravens were one of the teams that spoke to the Dolphins about a potential Jarvis Landry trade last offseason.

It's notable since Landry is now set to become a free agent in less than two months with Miami not showing much desire to get him inked to a long-term deal. However, Zrebiec "cannot imagine" the Ravens meeting Landry's sky-high asking price at north of $13 million annually. After failing to acquire Landry last year, the Ravens signed Jeremy Maclin, who was a major disappointment and will likely be one-and-done in Baltimore. This offense badly needs weapons.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens would like ex-Colts coach Chuck Pagano to replace the retiring Dean Pees as defensive coordinator.

The Ravens' DBs coach from 2008-10, Pagano spent one year as coordinator before being hired by the Colts. Pees was the coordinator for the entire intervening six years. Pagano's Colts defenses weren't much to call home about, but personnel issues were an annual theme.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Bears DC Vic Fangio could be a candidate for the coordinating jobs in Baltimore and Green Bay.

Ravens DC Dean Pees has retired, and Packers DC Dom Capers is expected to be fired. Out of a contract, Fangio would be a great option for either opening, but it would be in the Bears' best interest to try to keep him around. Despite talent issues, Fangio has overseen a top-15 defense each of his three years in Chicago.

Ravens DC Dean Pees has retired.

The 68-year-old coordinator joined the Ravens in 2010 as a linebackers coach after coordinating the Patriots' defense for four seasons. He was promoted to coordinator in 2012. Baltimore finished in the top 12 of total defense and scoring defense five of his six years in charge, and they finished top five in takeaways each of the last two years. This is a loss for the Ravens, but they do have a viable replacement on staff in LBs coach Don Martindale.

Free agent WR Jeremy Kerley worked out for the Ravens on Tuesday.

The Ravens have been low on bodies at receiver for much of the year. Kerley would offer a sure pair of hands as veteran depth.

Ravens released RB Bobby Rainey.

Rainey was no longer needed with Baltimore's running back corps back near full strength. Rainey was replaced on the 53 by ex-Rams OL Andrew Donnal.

Free agent WR Griff Whalen is expected to re-sign with the Ravens.

He'll sign Thursday as long as he passes his physical. The Ravens desperately need healthy bodies with Jeremy Maclin (shoulder), Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Mike Wallace (back) all listed on the injury report. Whalen carries no fantasy significance.

Jacoby Jones will retire as a member of the Ravens on Friday.

The 33-year-old last played in the NFL with Pittsburgh in 2015. Jones spent time with four NFL franchises but is most known for his three-year tenure with the Ravens, winning a Super Bowl for them in 2012. Jones earned All-Pro status that year and made a number of memorable plays throughout Baltimore's playoff run including a dramatic 70-yard touchdown versus Denver and a 108-yard kickoff return in Super Bowl XLVII. He visited the end zone 23 times in 114 career games.

Ravens waived RB Jeremy Langford.

Langford was just promoted two days ago, but the promotion of Alex Collins seemed to seal his fate. After his breakout season in Chicago, Langford has been a huge disappointment.

According to Ray Lewis on Inside the NFL, the Ravens didn't sign free agent Colin Kaepernick because of a "racist gesture" his girlfriend posted on Twitter last month.

There's a lot to unpack here. "We [Lewis and Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti] were talking about giving this kid an opportunity to get back in the NFL," Lewis said. "I have been fighting for this kid behind the table like nobody has. ... I've never been against Colin Kaepernick. But I am against the way he’s done it. Then, his [girlfriend] goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed. Bisciotti has said it himself, 'How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?' ... We were going to close the deal to sign him. And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day." The picture can be seen at the following link. It sounds like a fabricated story to give the Ravens an excuse.

Browns claimed QB Josh Woodrum off waivers from the Ravens.

A second-year UDFA out of small-school Liberty, Woodrum attempted 36 summer passes for the Ravens, generating a healthy 321 yards. With the Browns already carrying three quarterbacks, Woodrum won't be long for the 53-man roster.

Bears claimed RB Taquan Mizzell off waivers from the Ravens.

An UDFA out of Virginia, Mizzell racked up a whopping 52 preseason touches. For now, he's claiming Ka'Deem Carey's (wrist) roster spot, but he probably won't last the entire year on the Bears' 53-man roster.
Sun, Sep 3, 2017 12:52:00 PM

Ravens released/waived RB Taquan Mizzell, WR Quincy Adeboyejo, LB Boseko Lokombo, TE Ryan Malleck, WR Chris Matthews, LB Donald Payne, CB Reggie Porter, FB Ricky Ortiz, OT Maurquice Shakir, C Matt Skura, and QB Josh Woodrum.

Mizzell got a ton of work as an UDFA this preseason, rushing 40 times for 126 yards (3.2 YPC) while adding 12 catches for 90 yards and one touchdown.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 04:20:00 PM

Ravens released/waived WR Keenan Reynolds, K Kenny Allen, LB Randy Allen, WR C.J. Board, OG Jarell Broxton, S Otha Foster, OT Roubbens Joseph, C Derrick Nelson, C Taybor Pepper, OG Jarrod Pughsley, OT D'Ondre Wesley, CB Trevin Wade, and WR Griff Whalen.

Reynolds is the most notable name here after entering the league as the Ravens' sixth-round pick in the 2016 draft. He failed to successfully transition from college running quarterback to slot receiver and also struggled on returns.
Fri, Sep 1, 2017 02:52:00 PM

Ravens waived RB Lorenzo Taliaferro.

A 2014 fourth-round pick, Taliaferro averaged 4.3 YPC as a rookie with four touchdowns. It was all downhill from there as he battled foot and knee injuries. A hard-charging big back, Taliaferro had been getting tried at fullback.
Fri, Sep 1, 2017 01:34:00 PM

Ravens released C Jeremy Zuttah.

Zuttah has done the roster dance in Baltimore over the past few months, first getting traded to the 49ers in March before being released by San Francisco on August 14 and signing back with Baltimore four days later. He lasted two weeks on his second stint. Zuttah made the Pro Bowl last year but is 31. The Ravens appear to be going with Ryan Jensen or Tony Bergstrom at center.
Fri, Sep 1, 2017 01:27:00 PM

Ravens released RB Bobby Rainey and waived WR C.J. Board.

A pass-catcher out of the backfield, Rainey was on the team for a little over a month. The Ravens are moving forward with Terrance West, Danny Woodhead, and Buck Allen atop the depth chart but could add a player there.
Fri, Sep 1, 2017 01:03:00 PM

Ravens released TE Larry Donnell.

Donnell lasted one month with the team after signing in the wake of Dennis Pitta's career-ending hip injury. Donnell caught three passes for four yards and one touchdown this preseason. His once-interesting career has taken a turn for the worst in the past year. Donnell can't block a lick at 6'6/265.
