Report: Ravens still hoping to re-sign Ellerbe

The SportsXchange

The Baltimore Ravens are still hoping to re-sign linebacker Dannell Ellerbe before he become a free agent on Tuesday afternoon, NFL.com reported Monday.

The Ravens consider signing Ellerbe a top priority, but they have waited to negotiate until the Ravens had a better idea of what their cap situation would be.

Trading Anquan Boldin to the 49ers on Monday cleared about $6 million in cap space.

Several other teams expressed interest in Ellerbe over the weekend, and if the Ravens cannot reach an agreement with Ellerbe by 4 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, he can work out a deal with one of them.

Ellerbe had 4.5 sacks last season, when he played in 13 games, including seven starts.
