"We met with the Ravens and ultimately decided to go back with Carolina,"
said Frank Murtha, Baker's agent, in a telephone interview from the NFL owners
meetings in Orlando, Fla. "The Ravens were actively after Jason, but we decided
to look for a shorter contract and try to replicate last season and then get
back to the bargaining table."
The Ravens' veteran possibilities include Sean Landeta, Bryan Barker, Tom Rouen and restricted free agent Dirk Johnson.
Or they could draft a punter as they did in 2002 when they picked Dave Zastudil in the fourth round. Landeta, a Towson alum and Loch Raven High graduate, has been consistently linked with the Ravens.
