The Ravens, who lack accomplished depth behind starting tight end Dennis Pitta, could be open to adding a veteran well-versed in Gary Kubiak’s offense.
Head coach John Harbaugh indicated Tuesday that former Texans tight end Owen Daniels is under consideration, the club’s Twitter feed reported. Also, Harbaugh said re-signing tight end Ed Dickson was also a possibility, according to the club.
The 31-year-old Daniels has caught 385 passes for 4,617 yards and 29 TDs in eight NFL seasons, all with Houston. Throughout Kubiak’s tenure as head coach, the Texans used multiple tight ends in the offense, so Daniels could have an important role in the Baltimore scheme even if Pitta were the top target. The same could be said for Dickson, who’s made 44 starts in four seasons with Baltimore.
The Texans released Daniels on March 11. Were the Ravens to sign him, he would not count in the formula the NFL uses to determine compensatory draft picks.
