Following a 28-12 divisional round loss to the Tennessee Titans, the offseason has come earlier than expected for the Baltimore Ravens.
John Harbaugh has a young nucleus returning on both sides of the ball, but there are free agent decisions that must be addressed. The Ravens have 23 free agents in total, that are categorized as unrestricted, restricted, exclusive rights, and contract option.
Here's a look at the entire list.
These players will be free to hit the open market, but the Ravens have the first chance to re-sign them before that happens. In Judon's case, there's a strong chance the Ravens could use the franchise tag if the two sides cannot agree to a long-term deal. Baltimore's leading pass rush will likely be priority No. 1 to keep around this offseason. But decisions regarding Smith, Pierce, Bynes, Levine, and the rest of the group are up in the air.
