The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec doesn't expect the Ravens to re-sign free agent Chris Givens.

Givens posted a 19-346-1 line across 12 games with the Ravens after coming over in a trade with the Rams. He saw his snaps increase after Steve Smith Sr. tore his Achilles', but the extra work didn't lead to many plays for Givens, who struggles with anything outside of a "go" route. Givens hasn't made much noise since a decent 42-698-3 rookie season back in 2012.

Justin Forsett (broken arm) said he "should be 100 percent in a couple of weeks."

Forsett broke both bones in his forearm when Rams DT Aaron Donald body-slammed him Week 11. He should be a full participant in the offseason program. The 30-year-old back is expected to stick on the roster despite his $3.7 million cap hit, but Buck Allen should steal a significant chunk of Forsett's role.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens "really" like CB Will Davis (ACL).

Acquired from the Dolphins for a seventh-round pick prior to Week 3, Davis tore his ACL Week 5 against the Browns. He played well in limited snaps for the Ravens before going down, and he will likely be in their plans going forward. Davis shared an Instagram post showing him returning to field workouts just 12 weeks removed from surgery. It is possible he will be ready for training camp.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley said WR Jeremy Butler could make an impact next season.

Undrafted out of Tennessee-Martin in 2014, Butler played a big role in the Ravens' decimated receiver corps over the second half of the season, converting 44 targets into 31 catches for 363 yards. He earned praise from coach John Harbaugh, who said Butler "has always been a guy who can really make plays on the ball." With Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman expected back healthy and Kamar Aiken expected to be re-signed, Butler will not be any higher than fourth on the depth chart. Michael Campanaro is also returning.

The Ravens’ website expects Buck Allen to compete for a starting job next season.

Allen averaged 3.8 YPC in place of Justin Forsett, but was an upgrade in the pass game, posting a 45/353/2 line on 61 targets. Forsett is entering his age-31 season and coming off a year-ending forearm injury. Even with Forsett likely returning as the starter, the Ravens project as more of a committee in 2016.

CSN Mid-Atlantic confirms the Ravens are expected to tender restricted free agent Kamar Aiken.

Re-signing Aiken is an easy decision with the Ravens lack of receiver depth. Aiken managed a 75/944/5 line with Steve Smith injured during the second half and Breshad Perriman missing his entire rookie year. The Ravens shouldn't count on Aiken as more than a No. 3 wideout.

In a radio interview, Joe Flacco (ACL, MCL) called his current cap number "not really realistic" and said he's open to restructuring his deal.

"I want to win so I want to do everything we can to get something done. I don’t know exactly what that is or exactly what’s that going to be because we haven’t talked about it yet," Flacco said. "I’m open to doing something. I want to be here for a while. I want to play football here. That’s what it’s all about." GM Ozzie Newsome has said the goal is to build a team without touching Flacco's $28.55 million cap hit, but that may be wishful thinking. Flacco added his rehab is going well and predicted he will be ready for Week 1.

Ravens hired Leslie Frazier as secondary coach.

Frazier coordinated the Bucs defense the last two seasons, but was let go when Lovie Smith was fired. He'll work closely with DC Dean Pees and could add some Tampa-2 concepts. Frazier was a candidate for Cleveland's DC job, but will settle for a lesser role in Baltimore.
Jan 15 - 8:16 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports ex-Bucs DC Leslie Frazier is a candidate for the same position in Cleveland.

A former head coach of the Vikings, Frazier also has years of NFL coordinator experience. He overlapped with new Browns coach Hue Jackson in 2004 in Cincinnati.
Jan 14 - 3:14 PM

Free agent Matt Schaub plans to continue his playing career in 2016.

Schaub attempted 80 passes for the Ravens in 2015, tossing more interceptions than touchdowns before injuries sent him to the bench. Going on 35, Schaub would be among the league's worst backups if he earned someone's No. 2 job for 2016.
Jan 12 - 2:42 PM

Ravens will retain DC Dean Pees.

"We still have plenty of work to do, but I trust Dean," coach John Harbaugh said. The pass defense was a disaster over the first half of the season, giving up 284 yards a game and forcing just three interceptions the first eight weeks. The defense turned around after the bye, however, riding a strong run defense and an improving pass defense to a top-eight finish in total defense. Pees has been with the Ravens since 2012.

Profootballtalk reports two teams "covet" Ravens coach John Harbaugh, but that he's fully expected to remain in Baltimore.

The Eagles were known to be interested, but owner Steve Bisciotti said Thursday they never formally reached out. The second team is unknown. There's no known discord between the two sides. The Ravens seem to know they'd be crazy to move on from a coach whose team has made the playoffs in 6-of-8 seasons, winning Super Bowl XLVII in 2012-13.
Jan 7 - 7:15 PM

Speaking Thursday, GM Ozzie Newsome hinted the Ravens might use the franchise tag on impending free agent K Justin Tucker.

One of the league's three best kickers, Tucker is due a raise on last year's $2.36 million. Rather ridiculously, the franchise tag has become common for kickers. Whether it's via the tag or a new deal, Tucker will remain in Baltimore for 2016.
Jan 7 - 2:51 PM

The Ravens expect Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles') to be ready for training camp.

That's all good and well, but in reality, it's far too early to predict Sr.'s camp status. 89 has made it clear he won't rush back. He's extremely unlikely to suit up for meaningless preseason action ahead of his age-37 campaign.
Jan 7 - 2:48 PM

Terrell Suggs (Achilles') will return for a 14th NFL season in 2016.

Word comes straight from Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome. Going on 34, Suggs will be questionable for training camp after going down in Week 1, but the Ravens have precious little pass rush. They'll address it in the draft and free agency, but they need Suggs, even if he's aging and coming off major injury. Suggs is due $4.5 million, while cutting him would entail an $8.85 million cap hit.
