Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reports that the Ravens have already ”expressed interest” in free agent DE Dwight Freeney. La Canfora mentions that Baltimore is still in the market for pass-rusher, but only at the “right price.” League sources have informed him that Elvis Dumervil remains the Ravens’ “top target.” There are a few issues with this idea. First, Dumervil has said that he would prefer to re-sign with the Broncos, who reportedly already have a new offer out to him.
