Projecting Baltimore Ravens Free Agent Targets
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

In less than five days, NFL free agency will commence.

Some players will leave their current team to join a new one. Other players will end up returning to the same team they've been with for years.

The Baltimore Ravens have a lot of free agents to deal with—38 to be specific. 13 of those 38 free agents will be unrestricted free agents, meaning they can sign with any team they want to.

Of those 13, Bryant McKinnie, Ed Reed, Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger and Cary Williams are the five starters who will be unrestricted free agents on March 12.

Besides McKinnie, those other players all play defense. That means by the time the 2013 season begins, the Ravens could have lost 36.3 percent of their defensive starters from a year ago.

However, that might not be all bad. Baltimore's total defense finished the 2012 regular season ranked 17th, its worst ranking since finishing 22nd in 2002.

Conversely, the Ravens' offense set a team record in 2012 for the most points scored in a regular season (398).

According to, the Ravens currently have monies totaling $110,710,763 counting against their 2013 salary cap (which has been set at $123 million).

That means they now have $12,289,237 in cap space.

With this many needs and not a lot of financial flexibility, the Ravens will only be able to sign so many free agents.

Here's a look at which unrestricted free agents the Ravens should target in free agency.
