NFL Trade Rumors:
Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Ravens have not ruled out TE Dennis Pitta possibly returning at some point this season. Wilson admits that the chances of Pitta returning from his fractured and dislocated right hip in 2013 are still “slim.“ Pitta, 28, has already undergone surgery, but the team hasn’t placed him on season-ending injured reserve just yet. According to Wilson, the Ravens emphasized that he has “no cartilage or ligament damage,” which is at least a fairly positive sign. “It’s not procedural,” said HC John Harbaugh when asked about Pitta possibly returning this season. “As far as coming back?

Monday the Ravens announced the signing of veteran free agent tight end Dallas Clark. I thought this might be a no-brainer for Ozzie Newsome, given the injuries and sudden lack of depth of experienced tight ends---not just blockers, but guys who can make big receptions under game pressure.
But then I was reminded of some of the doubts about Clark's apparently waning abilities...

According to the Baltimore Sun, Ravens tight end Ed Dickson is still out with a hamstring injury and is not ready to rush himself so he can get back on the field.
“You can’t rush back those things,” Dickson said. “I’m trying my hardest to get back out there. It kills me. I’m hard on myself. I want to get back out there today, but I don’t want to go out and hurt the...

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome may be the best executive in the NFL, hands down.
Newsome watched most of his defense either retire, or leave for greener pastures this off-season, and many wonder aloud, what the Ravens were going to do to fix the holes.
Newsome decided he couldn’t pay Anquan Boldin, who was the backbone of the teams offense. The gutsy GM bit the bullet, traded Boldin...
Willie Taggart is as unconventional of a coach as you’ll find, and that really is an awesome thing.
