When it comes to NFL teams dealing with potential free agents, “close” can be a dangerous word.
But there are at least some signs the Ravens are moving in the right direction with tight end Dennis Pitta.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the two sides are “making progress” toward a deal, though nothing is imminent.
They have until the March 3 franchise tag deadline, though tagging Pitta could be problematic in that regard as well.
But for a negotiation that was described as “far apart” within the last week, “making progress” sounds like a good thing.
