Dennis Pitta Key to Baltimore Ravens’ Success in 2013
It has been made very clear that the 2013 NFL offseason has not been too kind to the Baltimore Ravens. Although the Super Bowl champions just stole Elvis Dumervil from the Denver Broncos, Baltimore will still be missing seven starters on the defensive side of the ball in 2013. Now, the focus is going to turn to Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta who is currently a restricted free agent.
Pitta was given a second-round tender by the club which means if another team like the Washington Redskins, who have shown interest, would have to surrender a second-round pick to acquire the 27-year-old tight end. This was supposed to be a stop-gap move for the Ravens as they hope to hammer out a deal with one of their biggest offensive weapons. Pitta showed his worth in the 2013 postseason where he snagged 163 yards and 14 catches with three of them being touchdowns.
Joe Flacco broke the bank this offseason and if another team swipes Pitta from the Ravens he would enter 2013 without his top two targets as Anquan Boldin caught balls last season and is now with the San Francisco 49ers. Pitta was second on the team with catches as he reeled in 61 balls which is just as many as running back Ray Rice.
Baltimore has taken quite a few blows this NFL offseason, but if they were to lose Pitta this team would be devastated. However, if the two can finalize a deal before the season begins I think that Pitta could be an All-Pro in 2013.
