According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has been texting potential undrafted free agents. He explains to the players that their names have come up in draft meetings and let’s them know that the Ravens would like to figure out a way to bring them in. Harbaugh then tells them to feel free to call with any questions they might have.
Other teams do things that are very similar to Harbaugh and the Ravens. Both the Eagles and now the Colts, send out letters to potential undrafted free agents expressing their interest.
In the NFL it’s all about trying to stay ahead of the competition and I’m sure every team does something to lure undrafted free agents.

BALTIMORE- As expected Ravens RB Ray Rice did not show up today for the start of involuntary workouts. Rice was hit with the franchise tag early in the free agency period by the team.
Since last season, the productive back has lobbied for a new long-term deal as he has played out his rookie contract.

Offseason team activities started for the Ravens today. As expected, Ray Rice isn’t there.
Rice, who is protesting the franchise, wasn’t expected to report without a new contract. The running wants a large contract, but the Ravens probably aren’t going to give him an Adrian Peterson-type deal.
I’m sure it will get worked out eventually.

As was reported yesterday, the Jaguars have officially signed former Ravens WR Lee Evans according to the team website.
While Evans isn't a top-of-the-line receiver, he's yet another solid guy that certainly adds to the Jaguars less than stellar receiving unit. With this signing, the Jaguars are beginning to look like a very formidable team that could pose many problems...
