Apparently in the two weeks after the injury to tight end Dennis Pitta, the Ravens had seen enough of their young receiving corps and a patchwork group of tight ends to decide they needed to do something about it. In a span of 24 hours, the Ravens signed veteran slot receiver Brandon Stokley and agreed to terms with Dallas Clark , a pass-catching tight end who also spent a lot of time in the slot when he played alongside Stokley with Peyton Manning...

ORLANDO -- Ravens coach John Harbaugh just spoke with reporters for about an hour on a variety of topics at the NFL owners meetings. Here are some of the highlights: Like owner Steve Bisciotti did a day earlier, Harbaugh again defended Ray Rice and said that, despite the running back's legal issues, Rice will be on the team in 2014. Harbaugh, however, acknowledged that the team's three arrests in a 22-day span were embarrassing and inexcusable. Harbaugh confirmed that Jeremy Zuttah , who was acquired Sunday for a 2015 fifth-round draft pick, is projected as the starting center.

The last time the Ravens visited the "trash heap" for a receiver, they traded a fourth-round draft pick to the Buffalo Bills for Lee Evans in 2011. And now, they've brought in tight end Dallas Clark and wide receiver Brandon Stokley. We're all familiar with Evans. He played in only nine games and had four catches for 74 yards that season. He failed to secure the late game-winning touchdown pass in the end zone against the New England Patriots in the AFC championship, and eventually replaced the human "Water Buffalo" - quarterback Scott Mitchell - as the biggest name one-year failure in the history of the Ravens.

One year ago, the Ravens' coaching staff was busy preparing for Super Bowl XLVII instead of evaluating draft prospects at the Senior Bowl. It's an entirely different situation this week. Following an 8-8 season where they failed to make the playoffs for the first time in six years, the Ravens' offseason has launched much earlier than they had hoped. And the majority of the Ravens' coaches are at the Senior Bowl -- except for coach John Harbaugh as he continues to interview offensive coordinator candidates back in Baltimore -- along with general manager Ozzie Newsome and the scouting department.

As the Ravens started their final full-scale practice before Sunday's showdown against the New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium, quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice were both on the field. Rice (thigh) did not practice Wednesday, and he was a limited participant yesterday. Flacco, who is dealing with a low-grade sprain in his left knee, has been limited the past two days. Both were listed as questionable on the injury report, though they are expected to play.

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta is eligible to come off the injured reserve with a designation to return list next week, although that never was a realistic expectation for his return from a dislocated right hip.  However, coach John Harbaugh said that the team remains optimistic that Pitta, who was hurt during the first padded practice of training camp on July 27, will return later this season. “Nothing has changed as far as I know,” Harbaugh said. “Everything is on schedule.

Tight ends have taken the NFL by storm. Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints leads the NFL in receiving touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski is back doing Gronk-like things for the New England Patriots. Jordan Cameron of the Cleveland Browns, who host the Ravens on Sunday, leads the NFL in catches. Meanwhile, the Ravens are still waiting for Dennis Pitta, their top tight end, to return to the football field. Without him, the Ravens rank in the middle of the pack in receiving yards from the tight end position.

Ravens wide receiver Brandon Stokley spent four seasons with quarterback Peyton Manning in Indianapolis and the two reunited last year for one season in Denver. Like Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and tight end Dallas Clark , Stokley has great familiarity with Manning. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that he feels comfortable this week giving Ravens teammates advice on how to defend the 12-time Pro Bowl quarterback. Frankly, he just doesn't know how much good that would do. “That's the hard thing with Peyton.

Ravens 14, Browns 6 Strategy: Jim Caldwell is a strong proponent of the no-huddle, calling it on 33 of 71 offensive snaps as the shotgun formation was used 25 times. They were much more patient with the running game, grinding out yards and controlling the clock in a tight contest. With tight ends failing to produce, they were targeted only three times as this evolves into a wide-receiver first scheme emphasizing Torrey Smith and Marlon Brown outside and Brandon Stokley moving the chains out of the slot.

Finally, in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens were able to use tight end Dennis Pitta as they originally envisioned before training camp kicked off. Pitta, in his fourth game back from hip surgery, played 63 snaps against the Bengals and led the team with eight catches for 63 yards. Fellow tight end Ed Dickson, meanwhile, played just seven snaps and Dallas Clark was again inactive. With Pitta sidelined for the first 13 weeks of the season, the Ravens got inconsistent production from the position.

The Ravens' pass rush has been silenced, failing to record a sack and only hitting the quarterback five times during the past two games. Since sacking New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith three times on Nov. 24, the pass rush has slowed down. "I don't think it's a product of what people are doing differently," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "They're getting the ball out pretty quick. There haven't been a lot of downfield route type things. We had some maximum protection [Sunday]

One-by-one, Joe Flacco rattled off the Ravens' various offensive deficiencies. The list was long, but the Ravens quarterback summed them up quite nicely. “It was overall not good,” Flacco said. “You can't expect to play that badly for that long and win a game.” For the better part of three quarters, the Ravens held down Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers' high-scoring offense at M&T Bank Stadium, only to watch their own offense continue to deal with issues that threaten to derail their season if not soon corrected.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Bills 23, Ravens 20 Strategy: A largely ineffective pass-first game plan was scuttled by a career-high five interceptions from Joe Flacco. The primary idea was to exploit an injury-riddled secondary, but cornerback Aaron Williams and middle linebacker Kiko Alonso rose to the occasion and alertly picked off two passes apiece. The focus was throwing outside, including a dozen targets for Torrey Smith (Maryland)

Ravens 26, Dolphins 23 STRATEGY: Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell recognized a need for a more balanced, methodical approach, calling a season-high 40 runs for 133 yards. Torrey Smith, Ray Rice and Deonte Thompson were targeted on 24 of 32 throws. Caldwell ran plenty of I-formation with just 20 shotguns out of 74 plays and 14 no-huddles. Ed Dickson was involved, and the drop-prone tight end may have restored his confidence by catching both passes thrown to him. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees created pressure primarily with four-man pass rushes and hardly needed to blitz against the worst pass blocking team in the league.
