Ravens unrestricted free agent predictions

Which free agents do the Ravens retain?

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

LS Morgan Cox

Kevin McDermott and Patrick Scales both had struggles when Cox went down, making him more valuable to the Ravens. Cox shouldn't be too hard to retain, as bidding wars don't erupt over long snappers.

CB Danny Gorrer

Gorrer has familiarity with the Ravens and I can see him getting brought back as a special teamer or just for competition in camp.

S Darian Stewart

Stewart was mediocre as a safety. He could get brought back on a cheap contract for depth and as competition for Terrence Brooks in camp.

S Jeromy Miles

See Darian Stewart, but he has value as a special teamer.

DT Lawrence Guy

Guy was good for depth on the defensive line. He could be brought back for cheap, especially if Haloti Ngata gets cut, Chris Canty retires, and Kapron Lewis-Moore isn't healthy.

OG Will Rackley

Rackley suffered a season ending injury in training camp. And apparently he wasn't good in Jacksonville anyway. No need to re-sign him.

CB Aaron Ross

Ross is 32 and he suffered a season-ending Achilles tear in training camp. No need to re-sign him.

TE Owen Daniels

Daniels was a good weapon for Joe Flacco, as well as being a good blocker. The only way I see him going to Denver is if they lose Julius Thomas, and I don't think that happens. I see him getting a 2 year $3 million deal to stay as a Raven.

RB Justin Forsett

Forsett was a pleasant surprise when the Ravens were in big need of one. That being said he's 30, there's younger runningbacks on the market this offseason (DeMarco Murray, Shane Vereen, Roy Helu, Mark Ingram) and the draft is loaded with talent at the position. I think he signs a two-year $3 million deal to stay here.

QB Tyrod Taylor

Taylor isn't all that good, even by backup standards. He's had poor performances when deployed for mop-up duty, and when given extended playing time in Week 17, he threw the game-sealing pick-six. Keith Wenning probably gets the job next year.

OLB Pernell McPhee

McPhee had a break-out 2014 season and a team with plenty of cap space in need of a guy like him could pay him much more than the Ravens can or will. In short, nothing we haven't seen here before.

WR Torrey Smith

Smith isn't a No. 1 receiver. He has questionable hands, questionable short-to-intermediate route-running, and disappears at times. But he's a good No. 2. I think Baltimore re-signs Torrey for five years and $32.5 million.
