With eight teams in the bidding, it’s highly likely the Baltimore Ravens are interested. His absence is clearly missed and multiple Ravens have already reached out in some fashion.
Glad you returning to football bra couldn't stay down to long @ZO35— Tavon Young (@Tyoung_NL) June 28, 2017
It’s hard to tell what will happen now, the Ravens cap space is tight and eight teams want the star product. Two of them rumored so far, Detroit Lions and the Raiders. Both teams cap space bigger than Baltimore’s. It won’t be easy for the Ravens to sign Zachary, they spent the money they originally wanted to pay Orr with, on multiple free agents this offseason, after his retirement.
