Mon, 17 Feb 2014 16:19:05 -0800
The Baltimore Ravens are in talks with impending free-agent TE Dennis Pitta but are "far apart" on the numbers, according to sources. Pitta is a prime candidate for the franchise tag unless the two sides can work something out by March 3. Pitta could file a grievance if he receives the tag to be designated as a wide receiver franchise number of $11.5 million instead of the tight end tag of $6.709 million.
