I had him listed pretty high as well, however, someone posted a link in one of my offseason threads that showed he was close to signing with the Ravens.
Only thing I could find that is even close to anything like that.
I know what your saying, but that link there is from last year when he was tendered a deal, someone could have got him for a second rounder but nobody opted to sign him.
I aslo read on the Ravens Message board that they were close to signing him but this was during the playoffs and nothing has been said since then.
I think there is a possiblity they are getting close with them, but I think it would be wise for him to test the market if he's looking for Value. The Ravens could also Franchise Tag him if they felt necasarry, but they also have other key players they may tag.
So far he's not signed nor is he tagged, all indications lead to him being available untill further news. I think he's a very good player, probably one of the few blew chippers on the market, it would be a mistake for the Ravens to let him slip through.
