The NFL's annual free-agency spending spree officially gets underway Tuesday, with the Ravens in a slightly different position than in the recent past. An elevated salary cap, coupled with a few cost-saving moves earlier this offseason, has left the Ravens with nearly $25 million of cap space. General manager Ozzie Newsome, who traditionally exercises discipline, restraint and patience at this time of year, already has vowed to explore every way of improving a team that missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007.

But Terps fans are more likely to remember how Petty stepped in as a freshman in 2012 and played quarterback after injuries knocked out the four players ahead of him at the position. The 235-pound Petty, who had played quarterback at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt , was serviceable as a passer.
