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.

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.

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.

The Ravens are expected to feature a lot of two-tight end sets this season.

The signing of Owen Daniels will not have a large impact on the production of Dennis Pitta, who was signed to a $32 million contract in February. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak will make strong use both players via "12" formations, with the more athletic and speedy Pitta getting featured in the "move" role. He remains a strong candidate to lead the Ravens in catches. Under Kubiak, no team in the NFL ran more plays with multiple tight ends than the Texans over the last three seasons.

ESPN Ravens blogger Jamison Hensley considers Darian Stewart a "fallback option" at free safety.

Stewart is currently penciled in the starting lineup opposite Matt Elam, but has a history of injury concerns and struggled to play above replacement-level when healthy. The Ravens would be smart to draft a safety in the first or second round, allowing Stewart to be used in a situational role. 25-year-old Stewart has yet to play a full season in his four-year career.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team has "big plans" for new tight end Owen Daniels.

"Just couldn’t be more happy, more excited," said Harbaugh. "I guarantee his role will be plenty big." Daniels has become injury prone as of late, but he is a solid receiving tight end who was on pace for a 77-807-10 line last season before fracturing his tibial plateau in Week 5. With Daniels on board, the Ravens are likely to make heavy use of "12 personnel" to create mismatches for Daniels and Dennis Pitta.

Ravens re-signed DT Terrence Cody.

"Mount Cody" is still only 25, but has been a major disappointment as the 57th overall pick in the 2010 draft, struggling as a run stopper and providing nothing in the pass-rush department. He'll have to battle to keep his roster spot.

Owen Daniels' one-year contract with Baltimore includes zero guaranteed money, and has a base value of just $1 million.

The max value is $2 million, with the other $1 million available via incentives. It's another savvy signing by Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome. Daniels is 31 and has become increasingly injury prone in recent seasons, but made a Pro Bowl as recently as 2012, and in 2013 was on pace for a 77-807-10 stat line before fracturing his tibial plateau in Week 5. Daniels' addition will allow the Ravens to make heavy use of "12 personnel," creating mismatches alongside Dennis Pitta.
Apr 4 - 2:12 PM

Ravens signed RB Justin Forsett, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year contract.

Forsett, 28, carried the ball just six times for 31 yards in nine games for Jacksonville last season and battled a foot injury for much of the year. He broke a bone in the foot in Week 12 but appears to be healthy now. Forsett, who owns a career 4.9 YPC average, will battle Cierre Wood and others for No. 3 duties.
Apr 4 - 12:09 PM

Darian Stewart is expected to be the Ravens starting free safety.

Stewart started 13 games for Steve Spagnuolo's Rams in 2011. Spags is now on the Ravens staff and loves Stewart. The former UDFA had 84 tackles, three sacks, and a pick-six during the 2011 campaign. Stewart has battled nagging injuries his entire career and will need to stay healthy to keep the job.
Apr 4 - 9:32 AM

Ravens agreed to terms with TE Owen Daniels, formerly of the Texans, on a one-year contract.

Daniels is reuniting with Ravens OC Gary Kubiak, who was his head coach his entire Texans career. Going on 32, Daniels has been in slow decline, but should be an excellent complement to Dennis Pitta in the middle of the field. Kubiak loves two-tight end sets, and Daniels has caught at least 54 passes in each of his past five healthy seasons. A broken leg limited him to just five games and 24 grabs in 2013, but he's now 100 percent. Daniels' days as a fantasy TE1 are long gone, but he'll be a reliable pair of hands for a team that lacked them last season. In theory, Daniels' history with Kubiak is a concern for Pitta, but Pitta will be an iron-clad No. 1 on the depth chart.
