Prioritizing the Ravens' free agents
NFL free agency begins on March 11, kicking off a spending spree the Ravens aren't likely to be a major part of. They are more likely to focus on keeping some of their own free agents, a task they have already started to take on. But they won't be able to keep all of them. So who should be the priority?
In this week's Five for Friday, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel ranks, in order, the five Ravens free agents the team should prioritize based on team need, cost and productivity.

I had to choose between a pair of heroes from the team's Super Bowl run for the final spot on this list. Both Graham and wide receiver and kick returner Jacoby Jones are free agents, and the Ravens would not have won the Super Bowl in 2012 without their big postseason plays. While Jones brings big-play ability to the offense and is one of the NFL's most dangerous returners, Graham, a steady nickel cornerback who can play both inside and outside, has more value. Plus, it will be harder to replace what he brings to the table, and I'm not sure Chykie Brown or Asa Jackson is up to that task.
