Ravens need another tight end?

Don’t be surprised if the Ravens are in the market for a veteran tight end. The Ravens have Todd Heap and L.J. Smith as proven options to go with Quinn Sypniewski and rookie Davon Drew. Neither Heap nor Smith has been a beacon of health during their careers and Drew is raw. His skills are more refined as a receiver than a blocker which then leaves Sypniewski. The fourth year player from Colorado is recovering from major knee surgery and from what we hear he isn’t exactly a lock to be ready in time for training camp. Sypniewski is an Ozzie Newsome favorite and he will get every opportunity to prove he’s ready to go. It will not be a shock however if Sypniewski is once again on the injured reserve list when the season starts.
