Are the Ravens ready to regularly use formations that will get Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels on the field at the same time?
According to Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report, Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak has pondered the prospect of “relying heavily” on formations using two tight ends because of Daniels’ encouraging offseason after missing most of 2013 with a broken fibula.
The 31-year-old Daniels played his entire career in Kubiak’s offense in Houston before signing with Baltimore this offseason, so fitting into the scheme isn’t a concern. If Daniels can stay healthy — injuries have been an issue during his career — he will add another effective and accomplished pass catcher to an offense that was a little short on targets a season ago.
Daniels has gained 12.0 yards per catch in his eight-season career, exceeding 50 catches four times.
