The Ravens are heading into a busy offseason on Monday they are going to be big moves made during the spring. Cuts, re-signings, free agency, extensions, and the draft are all going to be the focus of the offseason. One of the moves that the Ravens will have to make is what to do with their 2013 Draft Class.
On Monday, the Ravens will be able to give out contract extensions to their 2013 draftees. Matt Elam, Arthur Brown, Brandon Williams, Kyle Juszczyk,, Rick Wagner, and Kapron Lewis-Moore are eligible to receive contract extensions from the Ravens. The Ravens are also able to activate the fifth year option on Matt Elam, but there's really little reason for them to do so after a few disappointing seasons.
Brandon Williams, Kyle Juszczyk, and Rick Wagner are the only members of the Ravens 2013 draft class that are actually worth extending as all of the other draftees have failed to become starters for the Ravens. Ryan Jensen is a Restricted Free Agent after the season and the Ravens either give him a new contract or tender him.
Of the trio of Williams, Juszczyk, and Wagner, Juszczyk is the most likely to actually get extended this off-season. Juszczyk might be one of the best fullbacks in the league, but he's still a fullback and he's not going to get the big bucks from another team. Williams and Wagner play positions that get more attention and they could try and test the waters next season in hopes for more money.
The Ravens have some roster moves to make and the team has to make a decision on what to do with their 2013 class. Some of these moves are going to be easy, as some of the draftees aren't worth extending. Some of them are going to be difficult, as some of them are going to be worth the big bucks.
