Garrett Downing,

"The Ravens have their eyes set on adding a running back this offseason, and one player who might fit the bill has spent his whole life watching them.Running back Terrance West grew up in Baltimore and then spent his college career as a star at Towson, and he admitted that he has been cheering on the Ravens for years.“That was my favorite team,” West said with a smile at the NFL Scouting Combine, as he’s trying to convince any pro team to give him a chance at the next level.West met with the Ravens Friday, and he gushed at the idea of suiting up for his hometown team."

"“I don’t know if anybody here has had the opportunity to talk to Ray,” Newsome said. “I don’t know whether a different story is going to come out, the video is what it is. But like I said, until the process runs its course, we as an organization, we will stand down."

Ravens Entered Talks With Daryl Smith

Garrett Downing,

"With free agency quickly approaching next month, much of the focus has been on tight end Dennis Pitta and left tackle Eugene Monroe.The two unrestricted free agents have commanded the headlines, but they are not the only key Ravens who could hit the open market.Middle linebacker Daryl Smith is one of the team’s most important unrestricted free agents, and General Manager Ozzie Newsome announced at the NFL Scouting Combine that the team has entered contract talks with him."

Ravens Could Keep Both Eugene Monroe, Michael Oher

Garrett Downing,

"A big uncertainty for the Ravens this offseason is the status of the two starting offensive tackles.Left tackle Eugene Monroe and right tackle Michael Oher are both unrestricted free agents, and the prevailing thought has been that the Ravens won’t be able to keep both of them in Baltimore."
