ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley predicts Baltimore will release LE Haloti Ngata.

GM Ozzie Newsome has been trying to work on a new deal for Ngata in order to lower his $16 million cap hit, but nothing has materialized to this point. Ngata is refusing to kick money down the road after he had a strong season. The 31-year-old would be highly sought after if he hit the open market. Hensley mentions the Colts as a possible landing spot, reuniting Ngata with coach Chuck Pagano.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport confirms the Ravens are trying to get CB Lardarius Webb to take a pay cut.

Per Rapsheet, it's "unclear" what Webb will decide. Webb is due $8 million, and set to count $12 million against the cap. It's too much after Webb was injury prone and ineffective in 2014, though cutting him outright would clear just $2 million in cap space. Webb is signed through 2017, and due at least $8 million each season. He turns 30 in October.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes second-year WR Michael Campanaro is the "top candidate" to return kicks.

Following the release of Jacoby Jones, the Ravens would seem to be in the market for a kick returner. Campanaro is the favorite among players currently on the roster, but Baltimore could address the position through free agency or the draft. Campanaro should supplant Marlon Brown as the Ravens' slot receiver in 2015.

Ravens re-signed DL Christo Bilukidi to a two-year contract.

Ravens management must like what it's seen from Bilukidi on the practice field, because he's failed to earn significant playing time since his 2012 rookie year in Oakland. The 25-year-old will vie for a roster spot in camp.

Chargers released OLB Jarret Johnson.

It's a procedural move that saves San Diego $5 million in salary-cap space. Johnson, 33, has retired from the NFL after 12 seasons.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora expects the Colts to be "very involved" on free agent OLB Pernell McPhee.

McPhee's market is going to be scorching hot if we're to believe everything we've read over the past couple weeks. A versatile lineman who has the ability to rush off the edge, play with his hand in the dirt, and even push the pocket from the interior, McPhee is expected to approach $10 million annually on his new contract. Owner Jim Irsay has never been afraid to overpay, and the Colts badly need pass-rush juice off the edge. The Ravens-to-Colts connection is strong.

The Ravens are trying to get CB Lardarius Webb to restructure his contract.

Due an excessive $8 million base salary in 2015 while counting $12 million against the cap, Webb is a candidate for a pay cut after an awful, injury-riddled age-29 season. The Ravens will hope Webb's ineffectiveness was due to injuries, as he's not really a release candidate since the Ravens would save just $2 million against the cap. It would be in Baltimore's best interest to find an outside corner to pair with Jimmy Smith and move Webb inside full-time.

Speaking Tuesday, owner Steve Bisciotti expressed pessimism about the Ravens' chances of re-signing free agent Torrey Smith.

"There's always a team that has lots of money that wants to bring in playmakers," Bisciotti said. "Those guys are going to get those deals. I think we're going to have to take it on the chin and move on." Bisciotti cited Mike Wallace as an example of a playmaker who was overpaid in free agency. Bisciotti said he was rooting for Smith to "maximize his earnings," but strongly implied he won't be the owner handing out the deal.

Chargers OLB Jarret Johnson is retiring from the NFL after 12 seasons.

The No. 109 overall pick of the 2003 draft, Johnson spent the first nine years of his career with the Ravens before spending three seasons in San Diego. 132 of Johnson's 184 appearances were starts, including 14-of-15 in 2014. He finishes with 350 career tackles, 25.5 sacks and 11 forced fumbles. Johnson turns 34 in August.

Speaking Tuesday, coach John Harbaugh said free agent Owen Daniels has expressed a desire to re-sign with the Ravens.

All the dots suggest Daniels will follow ex-Ravens OC Gary Kubiak to Denver, but the Ravens have a big hole at tight end with Dennis Pitta's (hip) status uncertain. Although he's spent his entire career playing for Kubiak, Daniels will likely stay in Baltimore if the price is right.

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome hopes to re-sign free agent Justin Forsett.

"We will work to try and retain Justin," Newsome said. Newsome mentioned Forsett's past mentoring of younger backs as one of the reasons Baltimore wants to re-sign him. Going on 30 and without the offensive coordinator in Gary Kubiak who helped him to his breakout 2014, Forsett is someone the Ravens will be careful not to overpay.

Commenting on free agent OLB Pernell McPhee, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said "we can't pay everybody market value."

It's as telling of a comment as you will ever hear from a general manager. Barring an unexpectedly soft market, McPhee will be walking in free agency. NFL sources have told the Baltimore Sun McPhee will command in the area of $8-10 million annually.
Feb 24 - 2:55 PM

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said the team is in "wait-and-see" mode with Dennis Pitta (hip), and may not know his status until the summer.

Newsome said the team plans to add tight ends, indicating any contributions from Pitta will be considered a bonus. Recovering from his second hip dislocation in as many years, there's no guarantee Pitta plays football in 2015.
Feb 24 - 2:53 PM

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome called out 2013 first-rounder Matt Elam on Tuesday, saying the safety "has" to be better in 2015.

"Matt Elam has to be a better player for us next year," Newsome said. "He has to be." Elam was benched in Week 12 last season, and finished the year with just 439 snaps to his name. He played 44-of-145 snaps in the playoffs. With Will Hill locked in at free safety, Elam will face competition for strong-safety duties in camp.

Ravens S Terrence Brooks (torn knee ligaments) will begin 2015 on the reserve/PUP list.

The word comes straight from GM Ozzie Newsome. It means Brooks will miss at least the first six games of 2015. Brooks' injury was described as a PCL issue when he landed on injured reserve in Week 16, but he apparently tore multiple ligaments. A 2014 third-rounder, Brooks played 245 snaps as a rookie, mostly struggling. His sophomore campaign is already shaping up as lost, meaning he'll be on the roster bubble in 2016.
