Ravens 15.7 mil under the cap for 2013

Recommended Posts

Think again bro...37 players are under contract for a total Salary Cap commitment of just over $106.5M....we need 53.


37 players are under contract for a total Salary Cap commitment of just over $106.5M. (Link to 2013 Salary Cap Spreadsheet).


These players must be tendered contracts of the league minimum, based on the player’s length of service in the league (either $555K or $480K). Once tendered, these players are fully under the team’s control and are not free to negotiate with other teams.

The Ravens have 7 players who are Exclusive Rights Free Agents (EFAs):

RB – Anthony Allen

RB – Damien Berry

RB – Bobby Rainey

LB – Josh Bynes

LB – Albert McClellan

DT – Bryan Hall

S – Anthony Levine


These are players whose contracts have expired and who have 3 years of accrued service time. The team must tender the player with an RFA offer. Once done, another team can sign the RFA to an RFA offer sheet, but the Ravens then have 7 days to match that offer sheet and retain the player under the terms of that offer sheet. If the Ravens were to choose not to match the offer sheet, then they would receive compensation based on which level of RFA tender was made to the player.

There are 3 RFA tenders (the new CBA did away with the “high” tender of 1st and 3rd round draft picks as compensation):

1st Round Tender: allows the team to receive the other team’s 1st round – $2.879M (est)

2nd Round Tender: allows the team to receive the other team’s 2nd round pick – $2.023M (est)

Low Tender: allows the team to receive a draft pick equal to the round in which the player was originally drafted or the Right of First Refusal (ROFR) for an undrafted player – $1.323M (est)

The Ravens have 7 players who are Restricted Free Agents (RFAs)

TE – Dennis Pitta

TE – Ed Dickson

LS – Morgan Cox

DT – Arthur Jones

OL – Ramon Harewood

WR – David Reed

S – Emmanuel Cook

In the past, the Ravens have usually tendered all of their RFAs, but on occasion, the team has non-tendered some players and instead, offered them one-year veteran minimum contracts. The veteran minimum salary for those players would be $615K. This year, Emmanuel Cook could be a candidate for such a deal, if he’s even retained at all.


In past years, the Ravens have usually re-signed their Practice Squad players for the following year.

Those 8 players are

S – Omar Brown

LB – Nigel Carr

OT – Jack Cornell

QB – Dennis Dixon

OLB – Adrian Hamilton

OLB – Sergio Kindle

G – Antoine McClain

TE – Alex Silvestro

Most will sign one-year contracts for $405K. Kindle and Dixon would receive contracts of $480K.


The following 13 players are Unrestricted Free Agents (UFAs) and will be free to sign with other teams if they haven’t re-signed with the Ravens before Free Agency begins on March 13th at 4:00 p.m.:

QB – Joe Flacco

S – Ed Reed

LB – Dannell Ellerbe

CB – Cary Williams

DT – Ryan McBean

LB – Paul Kruger

OT – Bryant McKinnie

S – Sean Considine

DT – Ma’ake Kemoeatu

S – James Ihedigbo

LB – Ricky Brown

TE – Billy Bajema

CB – Chris Johnson
