Ravens Free Agency Rumors

Ronald Martinez

This post will be rendered irrelevant in a few hours but for now, here are the rumors circulating around the internet on where the Ravens free agents might end up plus who might be coming to the team from elsewhere.

All along, Paul Kruger was rumored to be going to either the Cleveland Browns or Indianapolis Colts. The Browns have much more money to throw at Kruger and appear to the be the leading landing spot for the pass rusher. However, would Paul take the bigger payday for the obvious expectation to sit at home every January while other teams, including possibly the Colts, play in the post season?

Therefore, don't be surprised to see Kruger to accept a slightly lesser contract offer from Indy in order to re-unite with former Ravens defensive coordinator and now Colts head coach Chuck Pagano.

Dannell Ellerbe is also rumored to be targeted by both teams as well as the Cincinnati Bengals. With the Flacco contract out of the way and more cap space from the Anquan Boldin trade, expect the Ravens to do whatever they can to retain Ellerbe, a vital cog in the middle of the team's defense, especially since the retirement of Ray Lewis.

Ed Reed now hasan agent to negotiate with him and while he has said he wants to return, the San Francisco 49ers are now being mentioned as a possible spot for him to finish out his playing career. A lot of other teams would like to have the All Pro center-fielder patrol the back of their defense (New England Patriots?) but might be wary of his age and health versus the money he is looking for.

The Ravens have not remained quiet on the search for players to add to their roster. Ravens Insider Aaron Wilson reports that former New York Giants DE Chris Canty is visiting the Owings Mills Training Complex and might not be allowed to leave until he signs a contract with the team. Canty is a big 3-4 DE (6'7", 317 lbs), had 26 tackles and three sacks last year, and never more than four sacks in any of his previous eight seasons. However, he can both rush the passer as well as stuff the run and might be a great fit with the defensive schemes the Ravens run.
