AFC Notes: Browns, Dolphins, Ravens





  • Jeff Zrebiec of the Athletic writes that in a perfect world, the Ravens would sign a ball-hawking safety to replace Eric Weddle
  • Zrebiec doesn’t see the Ravens spending big money on either Earl Thomas or Landon Collins
  • Baltimore reportedly loves Tyrann Mathieu as a player, but Zrebiec’s sources are “highly skeptical” they will be willing to pay him $10 million or more per year. 
  • Some options that could make sense for Baltimore, according to Zrebiec, include Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, LaMarcus Joyner and Tashaun Gipson.
  • Zrebiec reports that Ravens’ officials remain optimistic that a deal can be reached with ILB C.J. Mosley and believe he would prefer to remain in Baltimore. However, the Ravens are going to have to come close to the offers he gets in the coming days. 
  • Zrebiec doesn’t think Bears RB Jordan Howard, who is reportedly available for trade, fits the kind of running back the Ravens would want to pair with Gus Edwards
  • At center, Zrebiec thinks the Ravens may have a hard time paying Mitch Morse and Matt Paradis the kind of money they could get on the open market. 
  • Zrebiec isn’t ruling out the possibility that Baltimore brings back TE Maxx Williams, even after locking up Nick Boyle to a three-year, $18 million deal. 
  • According to Jason La Canfora, both Ravens restricted free agents DT Michael Pierce and LB Patrick Onwuasor are candidates for long-term extensions after each received a second-round tender.  
  • Extending Pierce is a top priority for the Ravens, while Onwuasor is reportedly open to a new deal and ready to engage in talks. 
  • The Ravens did not tender RFA CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, though they could look to re-sign him later.  (Jeff Zrebiec)
