Previously expected to battle Terrance West for the Week 1 starting job, Dixon will instead prepare for an October debut in a backfield that now includes pass-catching maven Danny Woodhead, who joined the Ravens within the first few hours of free agency. It doesn't sound as though Dixon intends to fight his four-game suspension, as he instead vowed to focus on how he can help the team once his ban has concluded. This doesn't preclude the talented young runner from making an impact in his second NFL season, but the combination of four missed games and Woodhead's signing unquestionably dampers Dixon's 2017 outlook.
Mosley did not participate in OTAs and will be sidelined for the Ravens' minicamp as he continues to rehab from offseason shoulder surgery. Look for more updates on the veteran's status to come once training camp rolls around.
Young suffered a torn ACL during OTAs on Thursday, which will likely end his season. Canady stepped in at nickel after Young suffered the injury and stood out with three interceptions during the team period of practice. He'll need to beat out veteran Lardarius Webb to earn the starting job, but Canady (6-1,193) has youth and upside working in his favor. Canady had a injury laden rookie season, but now that he's healthy, he'll be a name to watch throughout the summer.
Waller joins a long list of Ravens tight ends that are dealing with injuries as Ben Watson (Achilles), Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) and Maxx Williams (knee) weren't available for OTAs either. However, it isn't clear what kind of injury he's dealing with or if he'll be back in time for training camp.
Williams was originally expected to be ready for the early portions of training camp, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that may not be the case after all. Upon his eventual return to full health, Williams will be competing against Ben Watson and Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) for snaps at tight end.
Smith finishes his storied career as the NFL's seventh-leading receiver, racking up 14,731 yards over 16 seasons. He's also one of 14 players in NFL history with over 1,000 career receptions (1,031). The five-time Pro Bowler played his first 13 seasons with the Panthers, during which time he helped lead the Panthers to Super Bowl XXXVIII and also led the league in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns in 2005 after missing the majority of the 2004 campaign with a broken leg. Although Smith checked in at just 5-foot-9, he still struck fear into opposing secondaries with his tenacity, speed, and ability to come down with the ball in seemingly every contested situation. Given his body of work and standing among some of the All-Time greats in terms of receptions and yards, Smith figures to be a candidate for the Hall of Fame once he's eligible.
With Shareece Wright (back) a late scratch, Price got the first start of his career in Sunday's loss to Washington. If Wright were to miss any more time, Tavon Young or Jerraud Powers would be the top candidates to join the starting lineup. Price doesn't seem like a strong candidate to be Baltimore's one player to return from injured reserve.
Clark (6-feet, 208 pounds) showed only modest athleticism at the Combine (4.54-second 40, 6.85-second three-cone), but he's an experienced player who was a very productive run stopper at Virginia Tech. He probably profiles as a strong safety in the NFL.
Following a competent showing late in the 2015 season, Mallett attempted just six passes in 2016 while serving as the No. 2 quarterback. He figures to reprise his role as Joe Flacco's backup, though it's possible the Ravens could bring in some competition for the job.
It's unclear why Byndom landed on injured reserve in the first place, but he's now eligible to sign elsewhere.
Watson takes the field just nine months after tearing his Achilles, a rapid recovery for the veteran tight end. Now back on the field, Watson is speculated to be the No. 1 tight end after the release of Dennis Pitta (hip) last week. It's difficult to gauge how much the 36-year-old has left in the tank, especially factoring in a torn Achilles, but Watson is the Ravens' best option in an otherwise inexperienced group of tight ends. That being said, the team may opt to handle the season as a tight end by committee situation, with Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) and Maxx Williams (knee) splitting first-team reps once they are healthy.
Jefferson's signing comes as no surprise after he was linked with the Ravens on Wednesday. He'll join last year's prized free agent signing, Eric Weddle, to form one of the best safety combos in the NFL.
Smith didn't practice at all throughout the past week, which could mean he's closer to doubtful than questionable to play, though as a depth player the team may activate him and limit his snaps. If he's held out look for Matt Judon to see some extra reps.
Levine was questionable to play after being limited by a nagging toe injury all week in practice. He projects to serve in a special-teams role Sunday.
The former Navy quarterback struggled to pick up on the nuances of his new positions last summer, but Zrebiec notes that he looked faster, smoother, and more confident overall last week. He showed improved hands in the passing game and had a more natural feel in the return game as well. With Baltimore's recent addition of Jeremy Maclin, an already crowded receiving group got even more jam-packed. With that, Reynolds will likely need to shine on special teams in order to break camp with the active roster.
Despite losing Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken in the offseason, Baltimore didn't draft any wide receivers or add any significant veterans at the position. Flacco is thus left with a receiving corps led by Mike Wallace, with Breshad Perriman, Michael Campanaro and Chris Moore -- combined owners of 52 career catches -- the other likely candidates to earn key roles. The Ravens could still add a veteran slot target along the lines of Anquan Boldin or Victor Cruz, but it also isn't out of the question that the team could make a more aggressive maneuver to secure a player who isn't clearly past his prime. The Chargers and Eagles both look like possible trade partners, boasting strong depth at wide receiver after making significant additions during the draft. While accustomed to playing with mediocre or sub-par supporting casts on offense, Flacco may really have his work cut out for him in 2017 after the Ravens devoted their offseason resources to the defensive side. The team also has major question marks along the offensive line and in the backfield, though it at least appears the Baltimore defense has a nice combination of high-end talent and depth.
The third-year wideout is lineup up for a vastly increased role in the offense this season following Steve Smtih's retirement and Kamar Aiken's departure in free agency. He figures to start opposite Mike Wallace, and by all accounts, Perriman has been up to the challenge to this point. Only so much can be gleaned from OTA performances, but it's encouraging nonetheless that Perriman is healthy and making plays in practice.
Daniel was merely a depth option in the team's secondary after being promoted from the practice squad in late October. His release gave way for the Ravens to elevate safety Matt Elam (knee) back to the active roster.
After seeing former Raven and 49er Torrey Smith choose Philadelphia over Baltimore in free agency, retaining Wallace was a no-brainer, especially with the team having bid adieu to veteran pass catcher Steve Smith. Per the Baltimore Sun, Wallace's 2017 option is for $5.75 million. The 30-year-old is coming off his first season with the team, in which he caught 72 passes (on 117 targets) for 1,017 receiving yards and four TDs in 16 contests.
Henry will miss the remainder of the season due to an undisclosed injury. The rookie did not log a single statistic all season, as he was buried on the Ravens' depth chart and often ruled inactive on Sundays.
Woodhead, who has caught at least 75 passes in last two healthy seasons, is well-known as a receiving threat, but coming off last year's Week 2 torn ACL and a change in teams, it's still impressive that he's already establishing himself in Baltimore. In fact, since Kenneth Dixon (suspension) will miss the first four games and Terrence West boasts 49 career receptions, Woodhead could be an immediate contributor this season. The 32-year-old has been cleared to run routes for nearly four months now, so he should be firing on all cylinders once the season kicks off, and if minicamp reports are any indication, that should result in significant PPR value out of the backfield.
Williams fell this far due to off-field concerns and a perhaps one-dimensional skill set, but that one dimension he has is the most important one for an edge defender: pass rushing. He posted nine sacks in 2016, as well as 16 tackles for loss. He should make an immediate impact for Baltimore as a pass-rushing specialist, but he's unlikely to accumulate the tackle volume necessary to make an IDP impact.
Bisciotti's vote of confidence shows that the Ravens will give Moore every opportunity to step into a much bigger role this season even with the addition of Jeremy Maclin to the mix. What's interesting here is that Bisciotti mentioned Moore ahead of Michael Campanaro, who had generated considerably more buzz that the University of Cincinnati product earlier in the offseason. Moore (6-1, 200) does have a significant size advantage over the diminutive Campanaro, and Campanaro's lengthy injury history appears to be wearing thin on the Ravens' coaching staff. A healthy and productive camp from Campanaro could vault him over Moore to be the team's No. 4, but Moore certainly has the edge heading into training camp.
Suggs played with a torn biceps from Week 6 on in 2016, not to mention a vague elbow ailment he apparently had to deal with as well. He's scheduled for offseason surgery to correct the bicep issue and there doesn't appear to be any concern that either injury will impact his availability for the start of the 2017 campaign, but it awaits to be seen how extensive of a role Suggs may have entering his 15th season in the league.
The surgery will likely keep Young out for the entirety of the upcoming season. With Young on the sidelines, it looks as if the team is prepared to lean on the likes of rookie Marlon Humphrey and 23-year-old Maurice Canady.
Weddle made his presence felt once again Monday as he picked off his second pass in as many weeks. Moreover, he was strong in run support and racked up a season-high 11 tackles (six solo, five assisted), including one sack. According to Pro Football Focus, Weddle was Baltimore's highest graded defender in Monday's loss. He figures to be busy again Sunday when the Ravens face the Eagles' quick passing attack.
Boykin, who most recently played for the Bears, missed the entire 2016 season due to a pectoral injury. Presumably healthy now, the 26-year-old will compete for a reserve spot at cornerback behind projected starters Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr.
West was given an original-round tender, which meant any team signing him to an offer sheet would've been required to give Baltimore a third-round pick if the contract wasn't matched. No team was going to give up a third-round pick for the right to hand him a multi-year deal, even in the wake of a 2016 campaign in which he set career-high marks across the board. Already tabbed by head coach John Harbaugh as the No. 1 back on Baltimore's current depth chart, West got a silent vote of confidence when the team opted not to draft any running backs. With Kenneth Dixon suspended the first four games and Danny Woodhead (torn ACL) likely to get most of his playing time in obvious passing situations, West is in line to open the season as Baltimore's unquestioned primary ball carrier. He still has limited long-term upside, as the Ravens presumably hope to eventually have a three-headed backfield, with Dixon potentially usurping West for the lead role.
As expected, Webb and the Ravens worked out an agreement for him to return to the team after being released in March to free up cap room, which the Ravens used to help sign safety Tony Jefferson and cornerback Brandon Carr. While the specifics of the deal haven't been announced yet, it's assumed that Webb will be signing at a discount considering his market value was seemingly lower than he had anticipated. Though he has 82 career starts under his belt, Webb will likely have to play a depth role for the team or accept a job as the nickelback considering that the Ravens improved their secondary this offseason.
The Ravens made a handful of changes to their secondary on Monday, releasing Arrington in order to sign Brandon Boykin and Al-Hajj Shabazz. All this comes in the wake of Tavon Young's ACL tear, which will sideline the starting nickelback for the entire 2017 season. Arrington's release seemed inevitable, as the team freed up $2.8 million with his departure. After missing all of last season due to concussions, Arrington will now look to compete for a reserve spot elsewhere, if he can remain on the field.
Kaufusi, the Ravens' third-round selection in May, suffered a broken ankle on Aug. 4 and had been considered lost for the season since. He likely enter the 2017 campaign as a candidate for a significant role in DC Dean Pees' 3-4 scheme.
The severity of the groin injury helps explain Maclin's slow finish to last season, though he only averaged 4.3 catches for 54 yards per game even before suffering the injury in the first quarter of a Week 9 contest against Jacksonville. He sat out Weeks 10-13 and averaged only 3.2 catches for 38 yards in Kansas City's final five games (including playoffs). The poor finish, in combination with Tyreek Hill's emergence, led the cap-strapped Chiefs to release Maclin after just two seasons of a five-year contract. The Ravens jumped on the opportunity to reunite Maclin with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who previously worked with the 29-year-old wideout in Philadelphia from 2009 to 2012. Maclin should draw a steady diet of targets while manning the slot in three-wide formations, and he also figures to get plenty of snaps even when the team only has two receivers on the field. Maclin, Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman all project for key roles, as the Ravens no longer have Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and TE Dennis Pitta -- a trio that combined for 185 catches and 272 targets last season.
Tucker's 38 made field goals tie him for fifth all-time for a single season and were the most by an NFL kicker since both he and Stephen Gostkowski converted 38 field goals in 2013. Not only was Tucker's volume impressive, but his accuracy was elite as he missed just one kick all season to notch a 97.44 field goal percentage. Tucker was also automatic from distance as he converted all 24 attempts of 40-plus yards, 10 of which were from beyond 50 yards. He finished second only to Matt Bryant among kickers in standard scoring formats, thanks in part to Bryant having a whopping 30 more extra point attempts. Tucker remains an elite option at kicker heading into 2017 and his career 89.84 field goal percentage ranks him No.1 in NFL history.
Shabazz, a former Steelers' cornerback, heads to Baltimore in the wake of Tavon Young's season-ending ACL tear. The 24-year-old has also spent time with the Colts, Buccaneers and Texans, playing mostly on the practice squad and special teams. He'll now look to secure a depth spot on the Ravens' 53-man roster.
Pitta's tenure with the Ravens ends after the tight end dislocated his hip last week at OTAs. It's the third hip injury in the past four years for Pitta, putting the future of his career into question at this point. The 31-year-old was coming off his best season with the Ravens, as he recorded a franchise-best and NFL-leading 86 receptions for tight ends. Pitta was a fourth-round selection by the Ravens in 2010 and totaled 224 receptions for 2,098 yards and 13 touchdowns over his six-year stint with the team. Not to mention, he was an integral part of the Ravens' Super Bowl Championship run back in 2013, catching a touchdown in the contest. The Ravens are now left with veteran Ben Watson at tight end, who himself is recovering from an Achilles injury, which could bring Crockett Gilmore (shoulder) and Maxx Williams (knee) into the fold this season.
Standing at 6-foot-3, 275 pounds, the Ravens presumably view this Grand Valley State product as an edge defender rather than an interior defender. With a 35-inch vertical and 4.73-second speed, Judon should be able to provide pressure from the edge.
Smith suffered a high-ankle sprain late in December and ultimately missed the final three games of the 2016 season. Fortunately he's been an active participant in OTAs this month and appears to be good to go moving forward.
Urban missed Thursday's practice with an illness, but returned on Friday without any limitations. He should be able to play full tilt in Sunday's game.
Bowser (6-foot-3, 247 pounds) is a superb athlete (4.65-second 40, 127-inch broad jump) who was a very productive disruptor in a dominant Houston defense, finishing the 2016 season with 8.5 sacks and 12 tackles for loss in eight games. He should emerge as a starting outside linebacker in Baltimore's 3-4 soon enough, though that position would likely limit his IDP upside.
The Ravens apparently believe Boyle has a higher ceiling than 2014 third-round selection Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) and 2015 second-round selection Maxx Williams (knee), both of whom have struggled to stay healthy the past couple seasons. However, there may also be some competition on the veteran end, with Ben Watson (Achilles) and Dennis Pitta still under contract, though both may be asked to accept pay cuts or else be released. Boyle, a 2015 fifth-rounder, has already been suspended twice for violations of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, limiting him to 24 catches in only 17 appearances. A third suspension would rule him out for an entire season, but assuming he avoids such a fate, Boyle could be in the mix for first-team reps during training camp.
Even with Kenneth Dixon (suspension) out for the first four games of the season, Allen may need to compete for a roster spot in a backfield that now includes pass-catching specialist Danny Woodhead (knee). Allen's pass-catching ability seemingly provided his best shot at a meaningful role on offense, but Woodhead's presence -- assuming he's healthy -- significantly diminishes Allen's value to the team. Head coach John Harbaugh said Terrance West sits atop the depth chart heading into the draft, but the team probably envisions Dixon as its eventual lead back. Allen should still have a decent shot to make the roster, as he's a recent fourth-round draft pick (2015) who can at least help on special teams.
The Ravens look to shore up their tight end position as Dennis Pitta's career hangs in the balance of a devastating hip dislocation that took place last week. Mallek was formerly with the Steelers during the offseason but was cut a couple weeks ago. The 23-year-old missed the entirety of last season due to a neck injury which is definitely something to keep an eye on as he competes in OTAs and training camp.
Matthews spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve due to a torn ligament in his right thumb suffered on a punt return in the Ravens' final preseason game, according to Sports Illustrated's Austin Murphy. While it isn't clear if he's back at full health as of yet, he'll look to secure a role on special teams ahead of the 2017 season opener.
Humphrey's contract includes a $6.75 million signing bonus. The Alabama product, who was the 16th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, is expected to vie for a significant role out of the gate for the Ravens, potentially serving as a nickel back in the team's secondary.
Wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh), running back Justin Forsett (knee), tight end Crockett Gilmore (back) and linebacker Albert McClellan (thigh) were all deemed questionable. Forsett returned to practice Friday and is expected to play.
Meanwhile, the following players were ruled probable: Wide receiver Marlon Brown (concussion), tight end Owen Daniels (rest), linebacker C.J. Mosley (wrist), linebacker Daryl Smith (rest), wide receiver Torrey Smith (knee), linebacker Terrell Suggs (rest), defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson (rest), linebacker Courtney Upshaw (hand) and center Jeremy Zuttah (ankle).
The 42nd overall selection in last year's draft, Correa logged just 48 defensive snaps in nine games, mostly contributing on special teams before a rib injury forced him to injured reserve in December. He made his mark in college as a pass rusher, but it seems the Ravens want him to play inside linebacker in their 3-4 defense, replacing early-retiree Zach Orr (neck). Baltimore could also use help at outside linebacker, which would seem to be Correa's more natural fit in the defense. Either way, he's expected to take on a key role as he prepares for his second professional season. He should have a clean bill of health with which to tackle whatever comes his way, as Correa's rib injury likely has cleared up at this point.
Taliaferro seems to be buried on the depth chart at running back, leaving him with no clear path to the final roster unless injuries hit the Baltimore backfield hard during training camp. It would thus make sense to at least give the 225-pounder a look at fullback/H-Back, which along with work on special teams might give him a real shot at making the roster. A 2014 fourth-round selection, Taliaferro has flashed some promise as a power runner when given the opportunity, but lower-body injuries cut each of his three professional seasons short. While last season's hamstring injury probably won't linger into this season, it's a stretch to think Taliaferro can actually replace Kyle Juszczyk, who parlayed his versatility into a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers. Even if there's little reason to believe Taliaferro can match Juszczyk's contributions as a lead blocker or pass catcher, it is possible a poor approximation could be enough to warrant one of the final roster spots.
Elam was involved in a dispute with a woman over the possession of a cell phone and both fell to the ground, with the woman suffering minor cuts to her finger and ankle. This marks his second instance of legal trouble this offseason and likely serves as yet another ding to his prospects of landing another NFL contract.
The Ravens were rumored to have interest in Morris Claiborne, who started across from Carr in the Dallas secondary for much of last season. The 30-year-old corner has started all 16 games in each of his nine NFL seasons, and while his availability has been the model of consistency, the quality of his play has been a different story. He was often exploited by No. 1 wideouts during his five-year tenure in Dallas, with his playmaking ability (one interception over the last three seasons) also leaving something to be desired. However, he should provide an upgrade in Baltimore, where the No. 2 and 3 cornerback spots are an annual weakness. Carr should draw easier matchups with his new team, as the other projected starters in the secondary -- CB Jimmy Smith and safeties Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson -- are all stellar.
A 2009 third-round selection, Powers started 88 of his 100 career regular-season appearances, including six of his 13 games with the Ravens last season. He did miss three or more contests in six of his eight seasons, which likely contributed to his decision to retire at the age of 29. He dealt with a groin injury and a concussion last season, and he was often picked on by opposing quarterbacks. Currently an unrestricted free agent, Powers likely would draw some interest if he changed his mind about retirement, though he might have to settle for an opportunity to compete for the third or fourth spot on a depth chart.
Beyer resided on the Ravens' practice squad for the majority of the 2016 campaign before receiving a promotion in Week 17 to help replace an injured Kamalei Correa. He ultimately finished that game, and his rookie season, with three total tackles. He'll be in competition for a backup linebacker role this summer.
The run-stuffing Williams was Baltimore's main priority among this year's free agent crop that also included right tackle Rick Wagner and versatile fullback Kyle Juszczyk. The Ravens managed to make room for Williams despite making the splash signing of safety Tony Jefferson and picking up Mike Wallace's $5.75 million option. Williams does not have gaudy pass rush numbers that show up in the box score, but he's a space-eating force in the middle that consistently gives opposing interior linemen fits and he is considered one of the premier run-stopping interior linemen in the league. Williams' new deal will make him the highest paid nose tackle in the NFL, per Rapoport.
Campanaro hasn't been practicing due to a sprained toe, but according to head coach John Harbaugh, the injury shouldn't be a long term issue. With the new addition of Jeremy Maclin, Campanaro will likely be bumped down to the No. 4 spot on the depth chart but that is subsequent to change based on training camp performances.
Yanda does not appear too worried about his status following shoulder surgery, as he stated "I will be out there for sure" regarding Week 1. The team is likely exercising caution with the veteran guard in order to ensure his health heading into the season. Entering his 11th year in the league, Yanda presumably has less need for offseason training activities than his younger counterparts. Barring any setbacks, he's likely on track to enter Week 1 healthy.
Coming off an injury-marred campaign and multiple offseason shoulder surgeries, Gillmore faces a difficult path to the top of a crowded Baltimore depth chart. However, he did serve as the team's primary tight end for most of 2015, and it's possible the Ravens will ultimately release one or both of Dennis Pitta and Ben Watson (Achilles). The more likely scenario still has Gillmore serving as part of a committee in the final year of his rookie contract. Furthemore, he'll have to successfully rehab his problematic shoulders before a realistic assessment of his role can be conducted.
The former Cleveland Brown was picked up by the Ravens on waivers toward the end of last season and will now try to crack the roster at a new position. Physically, Mayle's better suited at tight end at the NFL level after running a 4.67 40-yard dash at the combine, but he's still undersized and has shown a penchant for drops in the past. He'll need to make waves during training camp in order to latch on with the practice squad considering the amount of money the Ravens have tied up in their tight end group.
Lewis was entering the final season of his three-year contract, but the Ravens opted to head in a new direction. Shareece Wright also was let go, giving the Ravens an additional $4.9 million in cap space between the two defensive backs. Lewis suffered a thigh injury midway through the season, landing on injured reserve for the remainder of the year. In his two seasons with the Ravens, the 28-year-old recorded 67 tackles and five pass deflections through 21 games.
An undrafted free agent, Louis played one game with the Cardinals in 2017 before ultimately finishing the season with the Ravens. He figures to use training camp as an opportunity to compete for a spot on the final roster providing depth at inside linebacker.
