Ravens Still Have Cap Room To Make Moves


The Ravens still have enough room under the salary cap to make another relatively big move, or plenty to go bargain shopping with.

Baltimore is currently $9.061 million under the salary cap, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. That's after all the deals this offseason.

With the first week* *of free agency over with, General Manager Ozzie Newsome can still fill holes on the Ravens' roster.

Baltimore lost defensive tackle Arthur Jones and cornerback Corey Graham to free agency. Those could both be spots that Newsome looks to bolster via free agency.

The Ravens have not added any new pieces to their offensive line, locking up left tackle Eugene Monroe to this point. Baltimore has not yet added the athletic, playmaking free safety Newsome talked about at the end of the season.

There are still some big names left on the open market, but Newsome has a track record of more modest deals and spreading the money around.

Last year, in a much tighter salary cap situation, Newsome and Senior Vice President of Football Administration Pat Moriarty found enough money to add defensive tackle Marcus Spears, outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil, safety Michael Huff, linebacker Rolando McClain and tackle Bryant McKinnie after the first week of free agency.

Newsome doesn't like to go into the draft with holes, which allows him to stick to his best player available philosophy.
