4. The Baltimore Ravens will let Patrick Queen leave in free agency
Another name who is almost certain to be gone in free agency is Patrick Queen. The Ravens picked up his fifth-year option this year, but he will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and at linebacker, he should be the best available.
The Ravens would like to bring Queen back, but they know that it is all about price. Queen has played his best over the last two years, and he increased his market value in a big way. The Ravens are already paying Roquan Smith, and they have to feel that Smith had a big hand in improving Queen on the field.
So, the team has to be looking to add a cheap name next to Smith and letting Queen get his money elsewhere. Perhaps it is Trenton Simpson, who the Ravens drafted last year, stepping in to start over Patrick Queen.
The Ravens do not have the cap space, they have committed too much to linebacker, and they have the replacement plan already on the roster. Sunday was the last time Patrick Queen and Roquan Smith played together.
