07:17 AM ET 09.04 | Triggered by the familiar culprits of age and cap space, an exodus from Baltimore may not yet be over. The salary cap figures for defensive tackle Haloti Ngata ($16 million), quarterback Joe Flacco ($14.8 million), rush linebacker Terrell Suggs ($12.4 million), cornerback Lardarius Webb ($10.5 million), running back Ray Rice ($8.75 million) and guard Marshal Yanda ($8.45 million) account for a combined $70.9 million for the 2014 fiscal year. ... A tight budget could make it extremely difficult to retain many unrestricted free agents, including offensive tackle Michael Oher, tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson, cornerback Corey Graham, middle linebacker Daryl Smith, defensive end Arthur Jones, strong safety James Ihedigbo and wide receiver-kick returner Jacoby Jones.

That's the price of keeping your core together.

That's also why they hired Ozzie.

Ozzie will get it figured out.

This is why they started the purge during the current offseason, instead of doing it all next year

I'm sure Pitta post injury won't demand much $ post injury, Corey Graham will be replaced by Jimmy Smith, don't need Daryl Smith since Arthur Brown will play MLB full time, Ihegdibo will be replaced my Elam, Jacoby is signed through next season and will be cut after due to age. My only fear is whoever performs less between Ngata and Suggs from now to 2014 will be cut after.

May as well cut Oher too. I'm sure Ravens will be drafting a RT after this season.

Yup. He always does.

The Ravens do a great job of plugging in players to their system and not missing a beat.

It is what happens when you draft very good players. The writer is silly to talk about cap space and contracts for 2014. Those contracts will be reworked, they usually are and the cap space number WILL go up around $4 million a year, each year, for the next few years....( could go up as high as $7 million a year if the owners are forced to use the real book numbers ).

why would you say that?

September 4, 2013  09:32 AM ET

I would let Dickson, Jacoby Jones and Ihedigbo go after this season and try to keep Pitta, Oher and Jones. I???ll reserve judgment on Corey Graham and Daryl Smith until after this season.

September 4, 2013  09:34 AM ET

It'll get sorted out, Sandra Bullock will take care of things.
