Raven free agents still available - Where are they now?

New, comments

The Ravens have focused this offseason on resigning a majority of their free agents while cherry picking from the free agent pool to improve the team. However, there are still a few free agents left on the market that haven't been signed by anyone yet. We'll look into if they have a chance to return or not.

The Ravens have focused this offseason on resigning a majority of their free agents while cherry picking from the free agent pool to improve the team. However, there are still a few free agents left on the market that haven't been signed by anyone yet. We'll look into if they have a chance to return or not.

Vonta Leach - Fullback

Unfortunately, there is no way that Leach comes back. It is a testament to the idea that the league as a whole is pushing away from power running games and more into higher powered, fast paced passing attacks as why Leach hasn't garnered any real interest from a number of teams despite being a three time Pro Bowl player and one of the best at his position. Likely also a factor is that he is 32 years old and would really only be a viable solution for a year or two at most.

Dallas Clark - Tight End

Just like with Leach, Dallas Clark is simply too old and not what teams are looking for to be signed anywhere. After resigning Dennis Pitta and signing Owen Daniels, the Ravens are set at the position for the year, which is all that Clark would be signed for anyway. Not only is he not likely to be resigned by the Ravens, there is talk about him retiring.

Bernard Scott - Running Back

Bernard Scott was nothing more than a stop gap measure with both Rice and Pierce injured last season. The former sixth round pick is entering a journeyman point of his career as he will likely bounce around a few teams over the next few years with injuries at the position or as training camp competition. While the Ravens would like to sign another running back this offseason, it is increasingly more apparent that Scott isn't what they have in mind and will likely look towards the NFL draft in May to find a cheap backup with more upside. Scott could come back if injuries kick in as the team is familiar with him, but the chance of it happening is very minimal.

At this point, the Ravens are looking to continue to get younger and add depth. None of the players still available are likely to be resigned by the team as they were either not used or were just stop gap players during an injury filled 2013 season.
