Five Points to take away from Harbaugh's morning interview

120px-Torrey_Smith_Ravens_practiceThe NFL owners meetings are underway and Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh had a rather insightful interview this morning. The Ravens twitter account posted tweets of the interview and I will share some headliners.

1. Jimmy and Torrey Smith could get contract extensions soon: This is good news for Ravens fans, Torrey Smith is one of Baltimore’s favorite sons and a fantastic player.  Jimmy Smith also spends a great deal of time in Baltimore and has become a shutdown corner.  The sooner these contracts are done the cheaper they will be for the Ravens.

2. The Ravens are not happy with Tyrod Taylor: Taylor has seen very little game action and it is hard to judge a player with that. Taylor is in the last year of his contract but it seems as though the Ravens want to add another backup quarterback. Historically Harbaugh has always gone with two quarterbacks and a practice squad quarterback. The Ravens showed no confidence in Taylor when Joe Flacco was hurt. When Flacco was at 50% they still thought he was better than Taylor, that’s saying something.

3. Ravens are in talks to add Tight end Owen Daniels and bring back Ed Dickson: Again good news, the Ravens only have Dennis Pitta right now in terms of experienced tight ends. Daniels is very similar to Pitta and Dickson is a good blocker. The Ravens should still draft a tight end.

4. Kelechi Osemele is projected to be the starting left guard: Not much of a surprise, Osemele when healthy was fantastic at left guard. The Ravens also said that Rick Wagner would be the starting right tackle if the season started today, that defiantly needs improvement.

5. Jeremy Zuttah will be the starting center: Not really a surprise here, the Ravens would not have traded for him if he was not projected to be the starting center. Read my thoughts on the deal here.

Now here are all the tweets from the Ravens.
