The Baltimore Ravens just announced that they have parted ways with both linebacker Jameel McClain and fullback Vonte Leach.
They could begin talking with them sooner or later, but deals may not come out of those talks. Now according to Aaron Wilson on Twitter, the Ravens are in active talks with Eugene Monroe and Dennis Pitta.
Ravens in active talks with Eugene Monroe and Dennis Pitta. No deals imminent. Have work to do on both to get something done, per sources

Pitta returned to the Ravens near the end of the season after recovering from hip surgery. I figured he would end up being one of the best receiving tight ends in the league in 2013, but he ended up being sidelined for awhile. He could be asking for ‘wide receiver’ money going into free agency and could very well get it.
He’ll continue to be a huge part of either this teams offense going into next year, or whoever decides to pick him up.
Offensive tackle Eugene Monroe played in only four games with the Jacksonville Jaguars last year before he was traded to the Ravens for a fourth and fifth round draft pick in this years draft.
