The Detroit News reports the Ravens are interested in free agent LB Isaiah Ekejiuba.
The Ravens have "concerns" about the shoulder injury that limited Ekejiuba to three games in 2011, but reportedly hosted the special teams ace last week. With three primary special teamers in Albert McClellan, Corey Graham and Brendon Ayanbadejo all signed within the last week, however, there may not be a fit for Ekejiuba in Baltimore.
