PHOENIX -- The Baltimore Ravens are known for signing free agents after the first wave is complete, and the team could follow a similar path this offseason.
At the NFL owners meetings Monday, coach John Harbaugh indicated the Ravens intend to be active in free agency. The biggest positions of need remain wide receiver, tight end, cornerback and backup quarterback.
"We're just staying on top of it every second," Harbaugh said. "It's not like we're sitting back and just relaxing. We're monitoring it and we're talking to guys and agents. We want to be proactive."
Through the first two weeks of free agency, the Ravens have re-signed six of their own free agents, but they've only added one free agent from another team: safety Kendrick Lewis. Their current salary-cap space is $8.3 million after restructuring cornerback Lardarius Webb's contract.
Here are the top available free agents at the Ravens' positions of need:
The Ravens' history is to sign free agents later into free agency because they get the best value that way. They did it last year when they brought in running back Justin Forsett and Daniels on April 3.
"The more that you can add before the draft, it takes pressure off the draft to chase a position," Harbaugh said. "The more we can do that, the better off we'll be."
