NFL Rumors: Baltimore Ravens get four compensatory picks

The salary cap hit the Baltimore Ravens hard last year.

After winning the Super Bowl, the Ravens were forced to trade wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the team they defeated in the Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers, to clear cap space, mostly to sign quarterback Joe Flacco to a contract extension.

They then lost linebacker Dannell Ellerbe to the Miami Dolphins, cornerback Cary Williams to the Philadelphia Eagles, linebacker Paul Kruger to the Cleveland Browns and safety Ed Reed to the Houston Texans, in free agency.

On Monday, the NFL awarded the Ravens with four picks as compensation for those four losses.



Quite the haul for the Ravens.
