The Baltimore Ravens might be busier than any other team post-draft

“We’re not done putting this team together right now,” general manager Ozzie Newsome said. “It’s still two or three months – maybe four months – before we have to play Denver.” Ozzie has made it clear that the Baltimore Ravens are far from having a complete roster for the 2015-2016 season.
