Loss of Bennett no big deal

Wide receiver Drew Bennett retired without ever playing a snap for the Ravens, but it is no big deal.

The Ravens were taking a gamble with Bennett anyway hoping he had recovered from nagging injuries a year ago. Bennett would have been a big target for quarterback Joe Flacco inside the red zone, but he wasn't going to make a big difference on this team. In fact, a lot of the other stiffs out there on the open market aren't going to make a difference either.

Right now, the Ravens are in the hunt for some bodies to take some reps in training camp. In a week or two, they might be willing to make a deal for a top-notch receiver if Derrick Mason decides to stay retired.
