A rundown of who's gone:
» Ed Reed, safety: Close to deal with Texans.
» Dannell Ellerbe, linebacker: Signed with Miami Dolphins
» Paul Kruger, linebacker: Signed with Cleveland Browns
» Cary Williams, cornerback: Signed with Philadelphia Eagles
» Anquan Boldin, wide receiver: Traded to San Francisco 49ers
» Bernard Pollard, safety: Agreed to deal with Titans
» Bobbie Williams, guard: Released, free agent
» Ray Lewis, linebacker: Retired
» Matt Birk, center: Retired
The Ravens did manage to lock up quarterback Joe Flacco with a massive long-term contract last month, and the offense should be able to survive the loss of Boldin, a veteran who peaked during Baltimore's playoff run.
It's a different story on the other side of the ball. Reed becomes the sixth key defensive player to leave the team since the Super Bowl. The draft obviously will become hugely important as the Ravens try to re-stock the cupboard.
In the meantime, finding a way to land Elvis Dumervil would be a nice Band-Aid.
