Jamison Hensley, ESPN
"Of the 2,126 voters, 58 percent say offensive tackle should be the Ravens’ focus in free agency. Both of their starters from last season, Eugene Monroe and Michael Oher, are unrestricted free agents.Wide receiver (19 percent) finished second in the poll, and center (16 percent) ranked third."
With free agency nearing, Ravens have money to spend and decisions to make
Jeff Zrebiec, The Baltimore Sun
"An elevated salary cap, coupled with a few cost-saving moves earlier this offseason, has left the Ravens with nearly $25 million of cap space. General manager Ozzie Newsome, who traditionally exercises discipline, restraint and patience at this time of year, already has vowed to explore every way of improving a team that missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007."

The start of the offseason program is rapidly approaching.
"The Ravens begin their voluntary offseason conditioning next month, and then the organized team activities (OTAs) typically take place starting in May. Several key players – quarterback Joe Flacco, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs and running back Ray Rice – have already indicated to Head Coach John Harbaugh that they plan on participating in OTAs.But Flacco may even get a jump ahead of OTAs by holding some workouts of his own.During a press conference Wednesday to announce his new five-year contract, tight end Dennis Pitta said that he has talked with Flacco about organizing workouts with him and some of the other receivers."
