Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Baltimore Ravens news from around the web.  Turns out that defensive end Brent Urban isn’t just 100% healthy coming into 2015, he is also in the mix for a starting job.  Plus, is this Arthur Brown’s last chance with the Ravens?

"“When you see him out there, it’s not hard to find him,” said Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees. “I really think he was poised to be in a position last year when he got hurt to…I’ll never say start, because I don’t know. Chris Canty was the starter. But I know he was going to play a lot and be in that rotation and have an opportunity to play, and I really see him in the same situation now. I think he has really fought his way back, and I really expect that barring anything else happening, that he’s going to be a contender for a starting job.”"

"In the 2013 draft, the Ravens traded up six spots in the second round to grab Arthur Brown out of Kansas State. But the inside linebacker has done little to justify that move, and certainly — thus far, at least — must rank as one of the Ravens biggest disappointments of the past few years.Once viewed as a future cog in the middle of the Ravens post-Ray Lewis defense, Brown has been sliding backward  on the depth chart. He appeared in 14 games as a rookie in 2012, but last season he did not play a single defensive snap, appearing in four games in limited special teams duty."
