AMAZING NEWS: Baltimore Ravens have brought him back at last…

Which Ravens free agents are coming back, and which are going?

Starting on Wednesday at 4 p.m., the Ravens will be bidding farewell to several players who will be leaving.

As they look to assemble a team that can go beyond the AFC championship game, the Ravens will experience some turnover from 2023 to 2024 due to a lengthy list of free agents that includes important contributors and a high franchise tag for Justin Madubuike.

The Ravens will have an easier time next season because to Madubuike’s contract extension, which was revealed on Friday. However, because his cap hit will increase in the upcoming years, the Ravens’ window of opportunity will be more constrained. You can read more about the cap situation here.

Here is how we would rank each free agent based on their past performance, anticipated next contracts, market conditions, and the requirements of the Ravens.

At the NFL combine, general manager Eric DeCosta made it plain that he had no intention of allowing the defensive lineman to enter free agency. He made it clear that he wouldn’t think twice about using the franchise tag if they couldn’t reach an agreement in time, even though the Ravens were still searching for a lengthier contract. As expected, the Ravens tagged Madubuike on the morning of the deadline before announcing a four-year extension on Friday.

This wasn’t a shocking decision given the increasing significance of pass rushers. The Ravens’ pass rush intimidated elite quarterbacks in some of their best defensive performances. Madubuike also enjoyed a remarkable season, topping all NFL interior lineman in sacks and tying an NFL record for the most straight games with at least half a sack (11).
