Grubbs' agent, Pat Dye, met with Ravens vice president of football administration Pat Moriarty.

"We'll see where it goes from here," Dye told the Carroll County Times. "We'll keep talking."

However, the Ravens already gave guard Marshal Yanda a five-year, $32.5 million deal in 2011. Plus, the Ravens are engaged in talks with quarterback Joe Flacco on a potential contract extension, as well as trying to reach a long-term deal with running back Ray Rice, who could be hit with the franchise tag.

Harbaugh recently expressed optimism that a deal could be worked out between the franchise and Grubbs.

"We're in the process of negotiating," Harbaugh said. "We're committed, Steve Bisciotti's committed, to offering him a really great number."
