Coach John Harbaugh said TE Dennis Pitta (hip) "looks like the same player we’ve seen in the past."

Pitta has practiced without limitations at OTAs. He’s "confident" in his surgically-repaired hip, and says he doesn’t have any lingering issues. Two years removed from his last game, Pitta is doubtful to regain his pre-injury form. He’ll be part of a committee with Ben Watson, Maxx Williams, and Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) if healthy.

Ravens signed sixth-round pick Keenan Reynolds to a four-year contract.

A triple-option quarterback at Navy, Reynolds has been working at receiver during OTAs. The Ravens want him to open this season as their primary returner.

Breshad Perriman (PCL) insists he feels "much stronger" entering this season after a string of events he described as "rough" and "still rough from time to time" happened to him last year.

Perriman admits he spent 2015 "in a dark hole" in which he "shut everyone out." He missed the entire season with a PCL tear and subsequent setbacks, ultimately underwent surgery, lost good friend CB Tray Walker, and may now be in danger of losing his father Brett, who collapsed and is on life support. "I’ve been through a lot this offseason, but it’s just making me stronger again and just learning to keep faith and pray a lot more," Perriman said. "It’s been rough. It still is rough from time to time, but I’m steady getting through it, pushing through it and keeping faith."

Ravens WR Michael Campanaro has been sidelined with a calf injury.

Campanaro has been on the shelf for a "couple of weeks." Coach John Harbaugh said "there will be a time when he gets past this." A 2014 seventh-rounder, Campanaro has been extremely injury prone, appearing in just eight games because of back and thigh injuries. He'll probably be on the outside looking in of Baltimore's crowded receiver corps.

Trent Richardson has been sitting out OTAs with a hamstring injury.

It's probably not a serious issue, but any missed time undermines Richardson's long-shot 53-man roster bid. Richardson could be an early camp cut if he's not 100 percent.
May 26 - 2:52 PM

The Ravens have been fined and stripped of three OTAs sessions for having players practice in pads at rookie minicamp.

"We made a mistake and we are sorry for that," the team said in a statement. "We accept the NFL discipline." We highly doubt there was any "mistake." It defies belief the team could have not have known rookies aren't allowed to pad up. The Ravens have become increasingly "unfamiliar" with certain NFL rules in recent years.

Ravens first-round pick Ronnie Stanley will play left guard if he fails to beat out LT Eugene Monroe.

We ultimately expect Stanley to win out at left tackle, but it looks like he will see plenty of playing time as a rookie either way. John Urschel, Vlad Ducasse, Ryan Jensen and fourth-rounder Alex Lewis will compete for the left guard job if Stanley sticks at tackle.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec believes Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West and Trent Richardson are competing for one roster spot.

Justin Forsett, Buck Allen and rookie Kenneth Dixon are viewed as roster locks, leaving the other three to compete for one spot. A 2014 fourth-round pick, Taliaferro should be the favorite provided he can stay healthy, but that has proven difficult thus far in his career. CSN Mid-Atlantic speculated Taliaferro's roster spot is "under pressure."

Ravens MLB Zach Orr is the favorite to replace Daryl Smith.

Baltimore didn’t add any inside linebackers in the draft, leaving Orr and Arthur Brown to compete next to C.J. Mosley. A 2014 UDFA, Orr has been mostly a special teamer, but played increased snaps at the end of last year and had solid PFF grades. The Ravens haven’t ruled out signing a veteran if Orr struggles.
May 20 - 8:27 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Clifton Brown suggested Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro's roster spot is "under pressure."

A fourth-round pick in 2014, Taliaferro brings more size to the table than the Ravens' top three backs, and that plus his draft pedigree should earn him a spot on the roster. The problem is he has not been able to stay healthy through his first two years in the league, playing just 16 games total because of foot injuries. With the Ravens as deep as any team at running back, Taliaferro could be on the outside looking in if he is unable to stay healthy through training camp.
May 19 - 9:06 AM

The NFL is investigating the Ravens for putting players in full pads at rookie minicamp.

Using full pads at rookie camps violates the CBA. A Ravens official told ESPN "there was a five-minute period on May 6 when rookies and first-year players suited up in pads during a non-contact punt protection drill." The Ravens "immediately pulled players off the field" when union rep Ben Watson informed them of the potential violation. If the Ravens are found to have violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement, they could risk losing a draft pick and/or be forced to pay a fine.

Ravens signed OG Vlad Ducasse.

Ducasse met with the Ravens in early March. Nothing came from that visit, but Baltimore needed a fall-back option after failing to add any quality guards in free agency or the draft. Ducasse should compete with John Urschel and Ryan Jensen at left guard.
May 16 - 12:05 PM

Ravens signed QB Josh Johnson.

A veteran journeyman now on his seventh team, Johnson will serve as a camp arm as Joe Flacco recovers from knee surgery.
May 16 - 12:04 PM

Ravens signed CB Jerraud Powers, formerly of the Cardinals, to a one-year contract.

Powers visited the Giants and Cardinals before choosing Baltimore. He'll compete with Shareece Wright for a starting job at corner. The 28-year-old logged five interceptions during his three-year stay in Arizona, but was all too frequently a burn victim opposite Patrick Peterson. Despite a shortage of cornerback depth, the Cardinals let Powers walk without any fight.
May 13 - 3:17 PM

Ravens signed No. 6 overall pick LT Ronnie Stanley to a four-year contract.

Stanley will earn $20.484 million over four years with a $13.097 million signing bonus. Like all first-round picks, the contract comes with a club option for a fifth year. Stanley was the first tackle selected in this year's draft and will protect Joe Flacco's blind side as a rookie. The Ravens still need to figure out what they're going to do with Eugene Monroe.
