Ravens, Dennis Pitta not close in contract negotiations

Dennis Pitta and the Ravens are reportedly "far apart" from a contract. - John Grieshop

The Baltimore Sun reports that the two parties are "far apart" on an agreement.

With Terrell Suggs locked up, a lot of attention will turn to a deal with tight end Dennis Pitta.

At Monday's press conference, general manager Ozzie Newsome said that the organization was already working on contracts with other Ravens players.

One of those, you could assume, would be Pitta, which the Baltimore Sun has confirmed. However, the Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that the two parties are "far apart" from an agreement.

This isn't something to get alarmed about. It's still early in the offseason. Even if Pitta is designated with the franchise tag, there's a chance the two sides could work out an agreement before July 15. If so, the tag would no longer apply.

Pitta is an important part to Baltimore's offense moving forward. Something drastic would have to happen for the Ravens to allow Pitta to leave during free agency.
