The Ravens sure could use a veteran tight end given the uncertainty at the position.

Owen Daniels is gone and Dennis Pitta may retire due to his injury. If that's the case, the only tight ends on the roster are Crockett Gillmore and Phillip Supernaw. Therefore, adding a veteran could serve the organization well.

It looks like at least one veteran free agent is still out there that the Ravens could grab down the road. That would be former Cardinals tight end Rob Houslerwho has engaged in preliminary discussions with the Ravens according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Mutual interest exists, though agreeing on compensation will be what determines whether Housler ends up in a Ravens uniform.

Housler is a 6-5, 250-pound tight end and he'd fit in, one would think, as a big target in Marc Trestman's offense. Housler never had the statistical success many expected of him in Arizona, though. He only caught nine passes for 129 yards and zero touchdowns. His best season was in 2013, when he finished with 39 catches for 454 yards and one touchdown.
