Earlier tonight, we learned that the Ravens pitched a sizable long-term extension to Haloti Ngata only to be turned down. A new deal would have given the Ravens some extra breathing room against the salary cap but they’ll instead be stuck with the defensive tackle’s $16MM cap number. A lesser player might be cut in order to save some cash but, as Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reported earlier this winter, that was never really an option for Baltimore. The latest on the Ravens..
- Former Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain worked out with the Ravens today and it didn’t go too well, tweets Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com. McClain didn’t finish his conditioning test and didn’t participate in some drills. A league source told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (on Twitter) that he wasn’t surprised to learn of the linebacker’s poor conditioning.
Colorado State linebacker Shaquil Barrett was among the players participating in the Ravens’ local prospect day on Monday, writes Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Barrett, who had 246 collegiate tackles with 18 sacks and 32.5 tackles for losses, is graded anywhere from the fifth round to the seventh round by draft analysts.
- Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning visited the Ravens today and his next stops will be with the Vikings and Packers, writes Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Wenning was a four-year starter who passed for 4,148 yards as a senior with 35 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
