We have reached an agreement in principle on a 5-year deal with DT Brandon Williams.

Brandon Williams is easily one of the top nose tackles in the game right now, and the Ravens clearly made it a priority to keep him in Baltimore. HUGE move for the team, as Williams is the main reason the Ravens run defense was so good.
The Ravens, in my opinion, are having a solid free agency period so far. They let Juice walk, but replaced him with a smaller, more versatile back in Danny Woodhead, for less money. They let Wagner walk, but he’s not worth the money. They let go of big cap hits in Dumervil and Webb, they signed the best safety on the market, shoring up the secondary, picked up Mike Wallace’s option, and now they kept their best defensive player, when it looked like it was highly likely he was gone. Well done, Ozzie.
Just needed Brandon Marshall, but hopefully the Ravens find another big body guy.
