The Baltimore Ravens are preparing for a busy offseason, coming off a disappointing year that resulted in missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007. General manager Ozzie Newsome and the front office clearly have some holes to fill in order to improve on the team's 8-8 record.
There are many ways to approach upgrading the team's roster, including free agency and the upcoming NFL draft. In addition, the Ravens may look to get creative in assessing current players under contract, both on their own club and those on rival teams.
We've outlined five potential trades that Baltimore could explore this offseason. The moves range from draft-day maneuvering to outright player trades. These scenarios are not intended to be all inclusive, rather a broad overview for consideration.
Let's take a look at how Newsome and company will try to put the Ravens back into playoff contention for 2014.
