"This is the best group in the NFL," Crockett said of his own position group, per The Baltimore Sun. "I'm not afraid to say it. It's hands down, and there's guys that unfortunately won't be here with the numbers -- it's just you can't keep that many guys. There's going to be some really good, talented guys that can do everything not be here."
Gillmore finished last year on injured reserve with back and shoulder issues, but the third-year tight end was impressive hauling down 33 catches for 412 yards and four scores. The Ravens also house second-year target Maxx Williams, veteran Benjamin Watson and Nick Boyle, who will serve a 10-game suspension to open the season.
There's also the case of Dennis Pitta, trying to come back from a twice-fractured hip. The former starter drew praise last month from coach John Harbaugh, who said Pitta "looks like the same player we've seen in the past."
