Baltimore Ravens Strategy and Personnel 2009-04-18

FRANCHISE PLAYER: LB Terrell Suggs: tendered at $10.17M.



--FB Lorenzo Neal became leader of the running backs. He should figure into the Ravens' plans next season.

--OT Chad Slaughter was a late addition last season who doesn't have a place on the Ravens' roster, which already has tackles Jared Gaither, Willie Anderson, Adam Terry and Oniel Cousins.

--K Matt Stover bounced back after a poor start. He will probably test free-agent market but give the Ravens a chance to match the best offer.

--TE Daniel Wilcox has seen his productivity suffer over two injury-filled seasons. Not expected to return.
