The 5 Moves Baltimore Ravens Must Avoid in Free Agency

The Baltimore Ravens sealed the deal with Dennis Pitta to open the offseason with a solid “acquisition.” You can bet that general manager Ozzie Newsome is salivating at the chance to make more moves and bring in talent to rebuild the roster, but sometimes the best moves are the ones you don’t make.

To prove that I’m not merely trying to be deep and philosophical by positing a Yoda-like theory that turns normal theories on their head, this is a list of five free-agency moves the Ravens should stay away from.

In some cases, they are positions that aren’t worth upgrading through free agency—like wide receiver, where the underwhelming class of realistic free agents (read: not Eric Decker) doesn’t come close to the tantalizing and deep crop of wideouts in the draft.

Additionally, some of these non-moves have to do with the Ravens' own free agents—or in the case of Vonta Leach, cap casualties.

Save your questions until the very end but don’t hesitate to share your opinions on the Ravens offseason in the comments below.

Here are the moves that would break Baltimore’s rebuilding efforts—let’s hope Newsome doesn’t make them.
