Ozzie Newsome: High probability Ravens sign a free agent before the draft

Center Nick Mangold paid a visit to the Ravens on Wednesday that ended without a contract for the longtime Jets starter, but it sounds like a veteran will be joining the team in the not too distant future.

During a press conference on Wednesday, General Manager Ozzie Newsome was asked about the likelihood that the Ravens sign a free agent before the draft.

“We’re working. We’re working, and I could say there is a high probability of that, yes,” Newsome said.

Newsome was asked about free agents in general, but Mangold seems like a decent bet to get a job. The Ravens traded starting center Jeremy Zuttah to the 49ers, leaving the team in need of a new starter and the free agent market has little to offer with John Sullivan signing with the Rams this week.

    Good pick-up for a year or two. Not a long term answer, but good OL are rare these days.

    The NFL has changed remarkably in the last few years. I barely recognize anyone on my team each year. Every team is doing the same thing, jettisoning stars, and bringing in younger, cheaper, talent. Ravens were never about free agents.

    Centers are the key building block and stabilizers of o- lines- look what Alex Mack did for ATL – Ravens never really replaced Matt Birk
