Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Baltimore Ravens news from around the web.  Stephen Gostkowski got paid this week by the New England Patriots, which means that the Ravens now have a blueprint to follow regarding a possible Justin Tucker contract.

We’ve also got the latest on what Ravens are working hard as they prepare for training camp (at least the ones who post about it on Instagram), and 5 things you need to know about Justin Forsett.

Stephen Gostkowski deal sets market for Justin TuckerSarah Ellison,

"Other than Stephen Gostkowski and his family, perhaps no one is happier about the New England Patriots kicker’s new contract than Justin Tucker.Gostkowski became the highest-paid kicker in the NFL yesterday, signing a four-year deal reportedly worth $17.2 million, including a $6 million signing bonus.It’s not surprising that Tucker thinks it’s well-deserved.In part, because it is well-deserved. But probably also in part because Tucker is hoping to get his own “sick” contract within the next year or so."

5 things you must know about Justin ForsettRyan Mink,

"1)   He founded the ShowerPillWhat’s the ShowerPill, you ask? It’s an “athletic body wipe” for people on the move. Its advertising states that it doesn’t replace the shower, but does make its user feel refreshed. Forsett launched the company in 2009 and is still a co-owner. While Forsett got some of his former Seahawks teammates and even Head Coach Pete Carroll to film a video for it, I can’t say I’ve seen a lot of ShowerPills around the Ravens locker room."
