Outlining the Ravens' plan at tight end

Thursday, February 26, 2015, 1:14pm

Baltimore Ravens - [Full Article]

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said he spoke with trainers about Dennis Pitta’s status this week, and their main message was that an answer on his availability won’t come until this summer. The Ravens likely won’t wait until they get that definitive answer to spur into action.

The Ravens want to re-sign Owen Daniels and they hope Pitta can play again, but they will certainly have contingency plans in place.

“Are we going to try to add some tight ends to this offense? Yes,” General Manager Ozzie Newsome said during Tuesday’s press conference.

Newsome’s comment made it clear that the Ravens will look outside the building to bring in new pieces over the next few months. This year’s draft is considered thin at the position, but the Ravens will keep a close eye on prospects who could help the offense this fall.

Fantasy Impact:

Daniels finished as the #18 tight end on 78 targets (which were 17th-most at his position). Pitta's availability is very much up in the air, and the Broncos are rumored to have interest in Daniels now that Gary Kubiak is the Broncos' head coach.

Scouting Report

Week 3 – Dennis Pitta vs. Cleveland

Dennis Pitta was covered heavily against Pittsburgh last week and ended up with only three catches and 30 yards, as fellow tight end Owen Daniels benefitted from the attention Pitta got and scored a pair of touchdowns.

I wouldn’t panic on Pitta, he’s still the main guy in Baltimore and the extra attention he was given didn’t work out too well for the Steelers. Against the Browns this week, Pitta should still be a primary option in the passing game, and we have him as a borderline starter, ranked 12th on our board.
