Not all is lost however, as former Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison has been talking with the Ravens, according to his agent:
I’ve talked to Ozzie, sure have, had a good talk about James,” Parise said. “It’s early and we’re not in negotiations, but we’re having some good conversations. Baltimore would be an outstanding place for James to play because he knows the division and has that familiarity and they’re a class organization. We’ll see where it goes.
The Ravens also managed to fortify their defensive line by signing free-agent defensive tackle Chris Canty, who appeared in nine games last season while notching 26 tackles and three sacks.
