Here are some news on the Ravens as free agency begins:
- Ray Lewis will begin to look for a home starting tonight. There are reports of a deal being on the table here in Baltimore that the Ravens and Lewis and his people talked about late into the evening.
- Bart Scott is the most intriguiing of the free agents for the Ravens. Reports have surfaced that a deal with the Ravens could be announced in the morning. There are also reports that he might be headed out on visits starting in the morning. My guess is that Scott stays in Baltimore and becomes the middle linebacker.
- Kyle Boller has been labeled as a target by the Dallas Cowboys as a backup to Tony Romo.
-Several teams have expressed in bringing in Jason Brown. The reports that the Redskins were the front runners, might have died down late into the evening. The Rams, Vikings, and Bills, are still believed to be pursuing Brown. Look for Matt Birk to be a possible suitor for the Ravens if he does not agree to a deal with the Vikings. Birk and Joe Flacco both have the same agent.
-There is a report that former Terp Dominique Foxworth could be on the Ravens radar screen.
