Colts signed RT Austin Howard, formerly of the Ravens.

31-year-old Howard started all 16 games at right tackle for the Ravens last season, missing just four snaps. At this stage, he's a replacement-level player but a serviceable one who can also play some guard. In Indy, Howard should compete with Denzelle Good for the right tackle job. The rest of the Colts' line appears set with LT Anthony Castonzo, LG Quenton Nelson, C Ryan Kelly, and RG Jack Mewhort, though Mewhort has played sparingly in two years due to injuries.
May 9 - 12:56 PM's Jim Trotter reports the Ravens have no urgency to rush QB Lamar Jackson on the field.

"The first thing, much like we did with Mike [Vick], is for him to ... learn how to play the quarterback position like we play the quarterback position here," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who worked with Vick in Atlanta, said. "Just how we go about the footwork -- the base, wide-base, short-style, all those things that we'll work on from Day 1, both pre-practice and post-practice." Quarterbacks coach James Urban also worked with Vick in Atlanta, while Greg Roman, Baltimore's assistant head coach, was OC during Colin Kaepernick's best seasons in San Francisco. The Ravens will take on 'only' $16 million in dead money by releasing incumbent starter Joe Flacco after the season, a transaction destined to occur following the team's selection of Jackson in the first round.

Titans traded up with the Ravens to select Alabama LB Rashaan Evans with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The Titans traded the Nos. 25 and 125 picks for Nos. 22 and 215. Evans (6’2/232) began college as a situational edge rusher before taking over as Alabama’s starting weak-inside linebacker for his final two seasons, earning first-team All-SEC as a senior and finishing his career with 21.5 tackles for loss and 14 sacks. Evans’ lone deficiency came in coverage, where he remains a work in progress and may not be ready to play on all three downs. Still a relentless, violent, and explosive off-ball linebacker, Evans projects as a plus starter with uncommon pass-rush versatility for his position. He compares to Lawrence Timmons coming out.

Bills traded up with the Ravens to select Virginia Tech ILB Tremaine Edmunds with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The Bills gave up the No. 22, No. 65 and No. 154 overall picks to move up six spots. Edmunds (6’5/253) made 29 starts in three years as a Hokie, earning first-team All-ACC in 2017 and finishing with 35 career tackles for loss, four forced fumbles, and ten sacks. Built like a throwback linebacker, Edmunds is also exceptionally young for a rookie (20 in May). An inside linebacker in Virginia Tech’s base 4-2 alignment, Edmunds shined on interior blitzes with 19 QB pressures on just 85 pass-rush snaps (PFF) last year and ran 4.54 in Indy, showing incredible size-adjusted speed. Edmunds needs to improve in coverage but long term offers a Dont’a Hightower-level ceiling.
Apr 26 - 9:53 PM

The Houston Chronicle reports the Ravens will "focus" on UCLA OT Kolton Miller if Notre Dame OT Mike McGlinchey is off the board.

The report comes via current Texans but longtime Ravens beat writer Aaron Wilson. The Ravens have been popularly mocked Louisville QB Lamar Jackson but indeed need help at tackle. They are currently without a right tackle after Austin Howard was allowed to walk in free agency. 2016 first-rounder Ronnie Stanley has yet to take off at left tackle.
Apr 26 - 6:04 PM

NFL reporter Ed Werder reports free agent Dez Bryant turned down a multi-year contract from the Ravens and wants a one-year, prove-it deal.

Werder, formerly of ESPN, is based out of the Dallas area and has big connections in the area. Once Bryant passed on Baltimore's offer, the Ravens likely turned their attention to Willie Snead and have moved on from Bryant. Bryant will be much more attractive to teams on a one-year contract as well. He's aiming for a big season in hopes of securing a multi-year deal in 2019.
Apr 25 - 2:49 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Ravens "are out" on free agent Dez Bryant.

A similar report popped up last week, but the signing of Willie Snead officially put the Ravens' interest to bed. Dez has also been linked with the Cardinals, Bills, and Packers, but nothing concrete has materialized to this point. It is possible both Dez and his potential suitors want to see how the draft shakes out before making any decisions.
Apr 23 - 10:50 AM

The Ravens aren't expected to pursue free agent Dez Bryant.

The Ravens were linked to Bryant early, but will likely move on after signing Willie Snead to an offer sheet. Arizona, Green Bay and Buffalo are the teams with the most interest in Bryant to this point. It's possible Bryant waits until after the draft to sign.

Apr 20 - 6:21 PM

Ravens signed restricted free agent WR Willie Snead to a two-year, $10.4 million offer sheet.

The Saints will now have five days to match the offer or risk losing him. Snead already reported to the Saints' offseason program but the team is unlikely to match Baltimore's offer after they gave him just an original-round tender then signed Cameron Meredith to a two-year, $9.6 million contract. New Orleans also re-signed Brandon Coleman earlier this week. Assuming Snead moves on to the Ravens, they will have overhauled their receiving corps by adding Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Snead this offseason.
Apr 20 - 10:41 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens have interest in free agent Dez Bryant.

Baltimore was one of the teams listed as a potential suitor by Adam Schefter, and Zrebiec confirms that interest. That said, the Ravens have already signed Michael Crabtree this offseason and do not have a ton of room left under the cap. The Cardinals, Bills, and Packers were also linked to Bryant by Schefter.
Apr 16 - 9:20 AM

The Cardinals, Ravens, Bills, and Packers have shown interest in free agent Dez Bryant.

All four teams Schefter lists have adequate cap space to sign Bryant. The Bills would be an interesting landing spot if only because Bryant would immediately become the focal point of a passing game that saw LeSean McCoy lead the team in both targets and receptions from the backfield last season. Joining the Packers sans Jordy Nelson would still give Bryant the best fantasy outlook for 2018.
Apr 14 - 12:47 PM

Titans signed WR/PR Michael Campanaro, formerly of the Ravens.

27-year-old Campanaro was a seventh-round pick in 2014 who caught just 12 passes in his first three seasons while battling numerous injuries. He caught a career-best 19 balls for 173 yards and one score last season and has experience as a punt returner. Campanaro should compete for slot snaps.
Apr 10 - 8:39 PM

Free agent WR/PR Michael Campanaro is visiting the Titans on Thursday.

The Ravens are reportedly interested in bringing back Campanaro, but nothing has happened to this point. Campanaro would help out as a return man and receiver depth in Tennessee.
Apr 5 - 11:30 AM

Free agent Eric Decker is visiting the Ravens on Thursday.

Decker has also visited the Raiders, but he has struggled for real interest despite finishing last season well for the Titans. The Ravens have added John Brown and Michael Crabtree this offseason, but they still could use some pass-catching help. Decker caught 54 passes for 563 yards and a score last season in Tennessee.
Apr 5 - 10:35 AM

Free agent WR Michael Floyd tried out for the Ravens.

Floyd has heard crickets in free agency following an underwhelming season that included just 10 catches for 78 yards. The former first-round pick would just be a depth signing for Baltimore.
Mar 30 - 4:55 PM

Saints signed TE Ben Watson, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

Watson spent the 2013-2015 seasons in New Orleans, posting a career-best 74-825-6 line in 2015 before signing with the Ravens and then tearing his Achilles' and missing 2016. He went 61-522-4 last year and still has juice at 37 years old. Expect the Saints to release Coby Fleener at some point, leaving Josh Hill and Watson atop the depth chart with Michael Hoomanawanui as a blocker.
Mar 28 - 12:22 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cowboys, Jets, Ravens, and Browns are all "vying" for free agent Allen Hurns.

Hurns met with the Cowboys on Wednesday, and he is also scheduled to speak with the Jets. Based on this report, it would not be surprising to see him travel to Baltimore and Cleveland as well before he makes his final decision. Hurns caught 39 passes for 484 yards and two scores in 10 games with the Jaguars last season.
Mar 22 - 8:56 AM

Restricted free agent Cameron Meredith will visit the Ravens on Thursday.

They're also hosting RFA Willie Snead. Meredith's had a hotter than expected market after missing all of 2017 to ACL surgery. He would join a three-wide set of Michael Crabtree and John Brown in Baltimore.
Mar 21 - 4:34 PM

Restricted free agent Willie Snead is visiting the Ravens on Wednesday.

The Saints placed the original-pick tender on former UDFA Snead, so they only get the right to match whatever offer Snead gets but wouldn't receive any compensation if Snead leaves. Baltimore is doing its best to overhaul its receiving corps, having already signed Michael Crabtree and John Brown.
Mar 21 - 10:00 AM

Colts signed Ryan Grant, formerly of the Redskins, to a one-year, $5 million contract.

The news comes from ex-Packers receiver James Jones, who is breaking news faster than Adam Schefter these days. The deal is considerably less than Grant would have made in Baltimore, but he will get a shot to hit free agency again next spring. Grant is a solid receiver who will help fill out the Colts' paper-thin receiving corps, but they still could use more help. As it stands, T.Y. Hilton, Chester Rogers, and Grant top the depth chart.
