Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Sun beat writer Matt Vensel released his second mock of the offseason, and it may leave some Ravens fans smiling.

Vensel predicts the Ravens will be able to snag Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower with the 29th overall selection in the 2012 draft. Hightower is a perfect fit for a 3-4 defense and would be very dangerous standing next to all-time great Ray Lewis

 

Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy reported on Wednesday afternoon that the team has agreed to terms with former Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Green Ellis has accumulated 2,064 yards and 29 touchdowns in his four years in New England and, amazingly, has never fumbled in the NFL (510 career carries). 

Green-Ellis' signing means the team will most likely move on from the troubled Cedric Benson, and leaves former Raider Michael Bush (who visited the team) still in limbo.

 

Cleveland Browns

Despite many reports circulating around the Web, some free agents may be interested in the Browns. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that former Giants middle linebacker Jonathan Goff visited the team's facilities on Tuesday

Goff missed the entire 2011 season with a torn ACL, but compiled 80 tackles and a sack while starting all 16 games for Big Blue. 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers

Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review may have given some Steelers fans a vote of confidence with his story early Wednesday morning. 

According to Brown, the recently retired Hines Ward will provided some counsel to disgruntled receiver Mike Wallace. Ward, the franchise's all time leading receiver, said he told Wallace that he should, "keep it in perspective" and remain with the Steelers.
