The Baltimore Sun suggests the Ravens could tender restricted free agent K Justin Tucker at a first- or second-round level.

This would ensure that Tucker would not get any offer sheets because no team is dumb enough to give up a top-64 pick for a kicker. It also would give Tucker a sizable raise he deserves after going 97-of-108 (89.8 percent) on field goals over the last three seasons. A first-round tender would cost $3.113M and a second-rounder is $2.187M.

Ravens FS Will Hill has a warrant out for his arrest in New Jersey for failure to pay his child support.

It's not the worst crime in the world as long as Hill pays the $16,588 he owes, but any trouble is bad trouble for Hill, who has been battling off-field issues since entering the league. Hill needs to keep his nose clean. He's long on talent but has proven to be short on common sense. The Ravens are aware of the issue.

Free agent Justin Forsett said he's heard the Ravens will keep some of the same run-game principles under new OC Marc Trestman.

Trestman takes over for Gary Kubiak, who implemented the highly successful Shanahan zone scheme. It resulted in a breakout year for 29-year-old Forsett, who put up 235-1,266-8 on the ground. It's a no-brainer for Trestman to leave the system in place while adding his own personal touch to the pass game -- a scheme that typically results in high-reception totals for his running backs. Forsett would be a nice fit and shouldn't be too expensive for the Ravens to bring back.

Impending free-agent RB Justin Forsett said the Ravens have expressed interest in re-signing him.

"They expressed that they want me back. I want to be back, so we'll see what happens," Forsett said. After bouncing around the league the first six years of his career, Forsett was finally given an opportunity to lead a backfield in Baltimore this season. He did not disappoint. Forsett racked up 1266 yards and eight touchdowns on 235 carries for the Ravens, earning his first Pro Bowl bid in the process.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes CB Lardarius Webb will be asked to take a pay cut this offseason.

Owed $8 million in salary in 2015, Webb will count $12 million against the Ravens cap under his current contract. Webb improved as he became healthy down the stretch in 2014, but his play the last two seasons does not justify that level of investment. Baltimore could save $2 million against the cap by cutting him outright, but they would have to eat $10 million in dead money.

Ravens signed WR Aldrick Robinson to a reserve/future contract.

Now 26 years old, Robinson will spend the offseason at Owings Mills trying to convince Ravens brass he's worthy of a roster spot as a vertical streaker and special teams player. Robinson is 5'10/185 with sub-4.4 speed.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expects a decision on TE Dennis Pitta's (hip surgery) future "in a couple weeks."

Pitta is recovering from his second hip dislocation and fracture in the last two years. He needs medical clearance to continue his career, but the Ravens are cautiously optimistic Pitta will be ready for 2015.

Ravens hired Marty Mornhinweg as QBs coach.

Mornhinweg, 53 in March, has spent the past nine seasons as the offensive coordinator for the Eagles and Jets. His offenses left a lot to be desired, but it's a good hire for the Ravens to allow Mornhinweg to focus solely on helping Joe Flacco under new OC Marc Trestman. Mornhinweg has a strong West Coast offense background, and Flacco excelled in a similar scheme last season.

The Browns won't interview ex-Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

ESPN reported on Tuesday that Mornhinweg was a candidate and would interview for the job at the Senior Bowl in Mobile. The Browns apparently aren't interested at this time. And with good reason. Mornhinweg's offenses have been as average as they come. The Browns can find higher upside elsewhere.

Ex-Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg is a candidate for the same position in Cleveland.

It's the first we've heard of Mornhinweg since he was jettisoned by New York. His interview is expected to take place this week at the Senior Bowl. Mornhinweg is about as average of a hire as a team could make, but would qualify as a get for a Browns team that's been passed up by all of this offseason's big names.

Ravens hired ex-Bears coach Marc Trestman as offensive coordinator.

Smarting from the loss of Gary Kubiak, the Ravens have found the best possible replacement. Trestman proved overmatched as the Bears' head coach, but has worked magic time and again with quarterbacks, from Rich Gannon to Josh McCown. Trestman fell on his face with a stubborn Jay Cutler, but is inheriting a much more "coachable" quarterback in Joe Flacco. Trestman's arrival should ensure Flacco's 2014 rebound from a rocky 2013 is not a one-year phenomenon.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Raiders will interview ex-Bears coach Marc Trestman for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

The Raiders join the Browns and Jaguars as clubs interested in Trestman. All three teams have second-year quarterbacks for 2015, but Trestman reportedly "absolutely loves" Derek Carr. Trestman was the Raiders' offensive play-caller from 2001-2003. He and Adam Gase have been linked to the Raiders.

Coach John Harbaugh says the Ravens are "challenging" FS Will Hill this offseason.

"Are you going to come back a better player than you were when you left here in January, and is that slate going to be clean?" That was Harbaugh's rhetorical question of a safety who has had a host of off-the-field issues. Suspended for the first six games of the season, Hill was a standout upon his return. Hill has consistently shined between his NFL bans. A restricted free agent, Hill could really cash in next offseason if he can keep his head on straight in 2015.
Jan 15 - 9:30 PM

Free agent TE Owen Daniels said he thinks he has "a couple more" years left in him.

Daniels will turn 33 in November. He was reasonably effective following Dennis Pitta's season-ending injury, recording 56 catches for 638 yards and five touchdowns in 17 games (including playoffs). Obviously, Daniels was boosted by Gary Kubiak's tight-end friendly scheme and his familiarity with that offense. The Ravens will likely re-up Daniels as insurance on Pitta.

Ravens RT Rick Wagner (foot) is expected to miss most of the offseason and training camp.

Wagner suffered a Lisfranc injury in Week 16 and recently underwent surgery. He's setting his sights on a return for Week 1 next season. Wagner was a standout sophomore for the Ravens. He allowed just two sacks in pass protection and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 right tackle in the regular season.
