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.

Update: The Ravens released Leach on Feb. 27 along with Jameel McClain. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said both Leach and McClain are "our type of players" and wouldn't be opposed to re-signing both players under the right situation.
Key 2013 stat: Played on just 44 offensive snaps over last six games
Chances he's back: Low
Skinny: Even though the Ravens cut the three-time Pro Bowl fullback on Feb. 27, it would be foolish to completely dismiss his return. After all, they cut him last offseason too, and they ultimately re-signed him. Kyle Juszczyk is also an unproven commodity at fullback. However, it appears this time around, the two sides are headed in different directions. The Ravens barely used Leach toward the end of last season and while the team's unprecedented struggles to run the ball weren't all on Leach, he also wasn't the punishing lead blocker that he had been.
