ESPN's Jamison Hensley considers Chykie Brown the current favorite for the Ravens' No. 3 cornerback job.

The Ravens lost Corey Graham to free agency, so Brown and Asa Jackson are the only two corners behind Ladarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Brown was active for all 16 games last season, but played just 39 defensive snaps. Baltimore is highly likely to draft a cornerback in the first four rounds.

ESPN Ravens blogger Jamison Hensley puts a 45% on the Ravens drafting a right tackle early in the draft.

Hensley said earlier in the offseason second-year T Ricky Wagner would be given a shot to win the job, but he is "buying" the Ravens' interest in Notre Dame G/T Zack Martin and believes they could select him with the 17th overall pick. Both would be upgrades over former RT Michael Oher, whom the Titans overpaid to the tune of $20 million over four years.

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent ILB Josh Bynes.

Bynes made six starts for the Ravens last year, finishing with 45 tackles and three pass breakups. He's now signed for $570,000 this season. 24-year-old Bynes will return as a situational run stopper opposite Daryl Smith.

The Baltimore Sun reports the "current plan" for ILB Rolando McClain is to report to the Ravens' offseason program as soon as Monday.

McClain caught flak for showing up to a mid-April conditioning test severely out of shape, but it's not especially surprising considering he's been away from football for nearly a year. Still only 24 years old, McClain is worth bringing to OTAs to see what he has left once he gets his fitness in order.

Ravens exercised RCB Jimmy Smith's team option for 2015.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Smith's option year is worth $6.898 million. Since Smith was not chosen in the first 10 picks, his option year is worth the average salary of the third- through 25th-highest paid players at his position. Smith broke out in 2013, starting all 16 games as he racked up 58 tackles, 15 pass breakups, two picks and two forced fumbles.

Ravens reinstated ILB Rolando McClain from the reserve/retired list.

It's likely the first step toward releasing his rights. McClain bombed his Ravens tryout on Tuesday, showing up late before failing to even finish his conditioning test. It would be very surprising if he's kept on the Ravens' 90-man roster.

Ravens re-signed exclusive rights free agent LB D.J. Bryant to a one-year, $420,000 contract.

Bryant, a 2012 undrafted free agent out of James Madison, has never appeared in an NFL game. He spent the 2012 season jumping between the Bucs, Colts, Jets, and Ravens practice squads before spending last season on I.R.

According to the NFL Network, the Ravens offered Haloti Ngata a lucrative long-term deal earlier this offseason.

The Ravens want to extend Ngata so they can lower his scheduled team-high $16 million cap hit. But with two years remaining on his current deal, the All-Pro run-stuffer has little incentive to take any kind of restructure that won't benefit him. The Ravens were still able to find enough cap space to retain pricy free agents Eugene Monroe and Dennis Pitta.

The conditioning test free agent ILB Rolando McClain failed for the Ravens Tuesday was an interval sprint.

The Ravens ask players to run 25 yards up and back three times, for a total of 150 yards. They're asked to do this sprint six times and hit target durations, with a one minute break in between intervals. McClain simply couldn't get through it -- and also showed up late for his workout.

Retired ILB Rolando McClain worked out for the Ravens on Tuesday.

That's the good news. The bad news, according to NFL Network and the Baltimore Sun, is that McClain was not only out of shape, but showed up late. McClain just doesn't get it. Although he's still only 24, the odds are against him cracking someone's 53-man roster this season.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb says he hasn't had any issues with his surgically-repaired left knee.

Webb played through knee problems for the majority of last year after tearing his ACL in 2012. He was considering offseason surgery, but reportedly feels like he's fully recovered. "By the end of the year, I was feeling a lot better," Webb said. "I'm feeling great now. Much more confidence and trust in the knee."

Misdemeanor drug charges against Ravens WR Deonte Thompson have been dismissed.

29 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found in a car Thompson was a passenger in during a routine traffic stop in February. The driver eventually claimed ownership of the marijuana, leading to the charges against Thompson being dropped. Thompson is now unlikely to face any league discipline.

The Ravens have paid Ray Rice $25 million since July of 2012.

The Ravens have swallowed the biggest chunk of Rice's $35 million contract already, with only $10 million remaining over the next three seasons. PFT's Mike Florio points out that if the money was instead backloaded, it would be easier for the Ravens to take a moral stand and cut him. Rice has been indicted by a grand jury on assault charges for striking his fiancee (now wife) Janay Palmer.

Justin Forsett (foot) says he's 100 percent healthy.

Forsett broke his foot in Week 12 and ended the season on injured reserve. He inked a one-year deal with the Ravens last week and will compete for No. 3 duties. Forsett has reliable hands and can hold up in pass protection.
Apr 8 - 10:11 AM

Owen Daniels visited the Patriots before signing with the Ravens.

We knew Daniels visited the Packers and Redskins before signing with Baltimore, but word of a New England jaunt never leaked. The Pats have a rehabbing Rob Gronkowski (knee) at tight end, but a vacancy at the "move" spot Aaron Hernandez used to play. The Pats could address tight end in the draft.
