With the offseason slowing down between free agency and the NFL draft, now is the time for the Baltimore Ravens to step back and reassess what they've been able to accomplish thus far, and what they should do going forward.
To recap their offseason thus far, Baltimore entered free agency with around $28 million in cap space. They went on to re-sign receiver Jacoby Jones, offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, tight end Dennis Pitta and linebacker Daryl Smith to long-term deals.
That left them with enough cash to pursue a few more free agents, and the first one they signed was former Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith. They also went on to sign former Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels and former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Justin Forsett.
The Ravens also traded a 2015 fifth-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for center Jeremy Zuttah this offseason.
All of these moves should help lead to the 2014 Ravens being better than the 2013 club that finished 8-8 and missed the postseason.
But what should the Ravens' plan moving forward be? With the NFL draft still to come, a lot of work this offseason has yet to be done, and here's a look at what's next for the Ravens.
