4 Big Moves the Baltimore Ravens Could Make in 2013 NFL Free Agency
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Has your heart resumed beating inside your chest?

Wow.

The Ravens beat the Broncos, 38-35, in double overtime in a Saturday afternoon game that was played in temperatures close to zero degrees. Next week the Ravens will play at New England in the AFC Championship, which is the exact scenario they found themselves in last year.

Top to bottom, Baltimore is a talented, experienced, hungry football team.

That said, like any team, Baltimore has holes.

At 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, the Ravens will have the opportunity to begin filling those holes through free agency. They could be looking for another inside linebacker to fill in for Ray Lewis. The Ravens could also be looking for a defensive lineman or cornerback.

Lardarius Webb is an excellent cornerback but will be coming back from a torn right ACL, and Cary Williams chose not to accept the Ravens' offer before this season, meaning he will be a free agent on March 13.

Besides Williams, other unrestricted free agent starters the Ravens will have to re-sign or replace include Paul Kruger, Ed Reed, Ma'ake Kemoeatu, Dannell Ellerbe and Joe Flacco.

While they can't re-sign everyone they want and while they'll have to let some good players go, the Ravens are elite in terms of NFL personnel management. Since 1996 (when the Ravens began playing) no other team has drafted more All-Pro players (13) than Baltimore.

Here are four players they ought to take a look at in free agency that could help them continue their winning ways.
