- Wilson’s source mentioned that the Ravens could end up using their franchise tag on Pitta if they are not able to make progress towards an agreement in the coming weeks.
- Pitta is expected to file a grievance that would argue he should be paid similar to a wide receiver and not a tight end, according to the source.
Current projections have the wide receiver tag $11.5 million with the tight end figure coming in at $6.709 million.
Wilson adds that the Ravens have held “preliminary talks” with LT Eugene Monroe and view him as an offseason “priority.”
Baltimore should have close to $16 million in available cap space to work with following the Terrell Suggs‘ extension.
We have Pitta and Monroe both listed in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
