Here's an Update on Ravens' Current Free Agents

Posted Mar 19, 2018

The Ravens have talked with the agents for Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro, and the Patriots are reportedly interested in adding right tackle Austin Howard.


It’s been a busy start to the new league year for the Ravens.

They’ve added a pair of receivers in Michael Crabtree and John “Smokey” Brown and parted ways with veteran right tackle Austin Howard, defensive back Lardarius Webb, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and running back Danny Woodhead, who retired over the weekend. The Ravens have also re-signed offensive lineman James Hurst and defensive end Brent Urban.

Even with all that activity, the Ravens still have a handful of their own free agents currently on the market.

Here’s a rundown on the latest information regarding each:

WR Mike Wallace
2017 stats: 15 games, 52 receptions, 748 yards, 4 touchdowns

The 31-year-old veteran might be the best free-agent receiver left on the market, but there hasn’t been much chatter surrounding his status. Wallace’s camp might just be keeping his contract talks quiet, as there have been no reports of him visiting any teams. Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome said last week that he has talked with Wallace’s agent and the door is not closed on him returning to Baltimore.

OT Austin Howard
2017 stats: 16 starts at right tackle

The veteran lineman hit the market this offseason after the Ravens decided not to pick up his 2018 option. The Ravens cleared $3 million in salary-cap space by letting Howard go, and they quickly put that money to work by signing Brown and Crabtree. If Howard signs elsewhere, he would factor into the compensatory pick formula, which is good for the Ravens. The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Howard is drawing “considerable interest,” including from the New England Patriots.

WR Michael Campanaro
2017 stats: 13 games, 19 receptions, 173 yards, 1 touchdown; 27 punt returns, 10.8 yards average, 1 touchdown

Campanaro finally got over the injury bug last season and was healthy for nearly the entire year. He was a quality punt returner and saw action as a slot receiver. Campanaro has shown flashes during his four NFL seasons, but has yet to develop into a highly productive receiver in Baltimore’s offense. Newsome also said the Ravens have maintained a dialogue with Campanaro’s agent, and the Howard County product could end up staying.

TE Benjamin Watson
2017 stats: 16 games, 61 receptions, 522 yards, 4 touchdowns

The 37-year-old pass catcher had an impressive comeback season after tearing his Achilles in 2016 and missing the entire year. It’s unknown if Watson plans to continue his career, as he hasn’t made a definitive statement about his future. There have been no reports of Watson meeting with teams or taking any visits yet.

RB Terrance West
2017 stats: 5 games, 39 carries, 138 rushing yards, 2 touchdowns

West entered the season as the Ravens’ starting running back, but lost his role after a calf injury suffered in Week 5. Alex Collins and Buck Allen both passed West on the depth chart, and he was a healthy scratch for the final month of the season. West is heading into his fifth NFL season, but he could end up sitting on the market for a while, as there have been no reports yet about teams pursuing him.

C Ryan Jensen
2017 stats: 16 starts at center

Jensen picked the perfect time to have the best season of his career. Jensen broke out in 2017, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made him the NFL’s highest-paid center at $10.5 million annually. The four-year, $42 million contract means the Ravens could likely end up with a third-round compensatory pick for Jensen’s departure.
