Ravens, tight end Dennis Pitta have reached a five-year deal

The Baltimore Ravens have locked down tight end Dennis Pitta with a five-year deal according to the Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson, who cites league sources.

It isn’t all too surprising given the news we’ve heard about Pitta over the past few days and with the deadline for the franchise tag approaching. Earlier this week NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted out news that the sides were making progress towards a new deal.

 

As of right now the financial terms of the deal are unknown, as more details come out FanSided will keep you up to date. The franchise tag for a tight end would’ve paid Pitta $6.709 million, but Pitta could have filed a grievance to be considered a wide receiver, which would cause that number to jump to $11.5 million.
