Jeremy Butler a prospect worth watching
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Ravens receiver Jeremy Butler, an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee-Martin, has made a strong early impression, reports the Baltimore Sun. The 6-2, 218-pounder "is an imposing downfield target with size, strength and leaping ability working in his favor," the report said, adding coaches view Butler as "an intriguing developmental prospect."

During minicamp, Butler ran with the second-team offense while other rookies worked on a separate field.

"I would say I bring versatility in the schemes and being able to play all over the passing game," Butler told the paper. "I make the plays downfield in the deep game. I go across the middle. I enjoy the dirty work and like the short, quick game.

"I bring that physicality to the table and overpower defenders. I'm just a hard-nosed Ravens style player. I can bring that element to the offense."

Dennis Pitta to play versatile role
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Ravens are expected to use tight end Dennis Pitta in a variety of ways this offseason, reports the Baltimore Sun.

During offseason practices, Pitta has been split out as an extra wide receiver to working out of the backfield as well as traditional in-line tight end alignments.

"I have done a lot of different things in this offense already," Pitta said. "I would assume that would continue to increase, but I'm trying to get down the basics still right now and trying to be effective at some of our basic plays, and hopefully, I can get in a position where I can play a variety of positions."

Ravens awaiting word on Ray Rice suspension
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Ravens are still waiting to hear how long running back Ray Rice will be unavailable to begin the season with a possible suspension, reports ESPN.

The report says Rice is expected to receive a multi-game suspension for allegedly striking his fiancée unconscious in February. The report suggests a suspension of two to four games for Rice would follow the league's recent track record with first-time offenders. 

If Rice is going to miss a major chunk of the season, the Ravens would give Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro more snaps this summer, especially later in the preseason. If Rice is only going to be suspended for a couple of games, the Ravens' rotation at running back may not change significantly.

Ravens trade LB Rolando McClain to Cowboys
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Ravens have traded linebacker Rolando McClain to the Cowboys, ESPN reported Tuesday. The Cowboys dealt a sixth-round pick in 2016 for McClain and a seventh-round pick in 2016 from the Ravens. 

McClain had been on the Ravens' reserve/retired list after announcing his retirement back in April but it's believed he's had a change of heart for what would be the second time this offseason. 

Over three seasons McClain has posted 246 total tackles over 41 games with 6.5 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble.
