A look at the Ravens' free agents and the chances they'll be back
As the Ravens get ready for the start of the new league year, they are prepared to lose most of their current crop of unrestricted free agents. Starting Tuesday at 4 p.m., these 2013 Ravens are free to negotiate and sign with the other 31 teams in the league. Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Zrebiec takes a glance at each one.

James Ihedigbo, safety( Mark Zerof, USA Today Sports / December 29, 2013 )
Key 2013 stat: 99 tackles
Chances he's back: Low
Skinny: Ihedigbo had a strong 2013 season, starting all 16 games and finishing second on the team in tackles. He certainly played well enough to warrant a return. However, the Ravens want to add a more athletic and play-making safety, and they potentially could move Matt Elam from free to strong safety, where Elam is more comfortable. Ihedigbo, meanwhile, earned a lucrative contract and an opportunity to start.
