The Ravens are $1.219 million under the NFL salary cap of $123 million.

That figure includes a $1.089 million salary-cap figure for new safety Jeromy Miles, the remainder of his original $1.323 million restricted free agent tender once he was claimed on waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals.

It also includes the one-year, $480,000 contract for running back-kick returner Shaun Draughn, a one-year, $555,000 contract for wide receiver Tandon Doss, a one-year $840,000 contract for tight end Billy Bajema that counts for $555,000 against the salary cap under the minimum salary benefit for veterans, as well as recent injury settlements for linebacker Robert James and wide receiver LaQuan Williams.

The Ravens have paid $65,000 roster bonuses for tight end Dallas Clark and wide receiver Brandon Stokley, whose one-year, $1.005 million contracts are now guaranteed for the entire season as vested veterans. Their base salaries are $940,000 apiece, but their salary-cap figures are just $620,000 under the minimum salary benefit.

The top salary-cap figures on the roster: outside linebacker Terrell Suggs ($13.02 million), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata ($11.5 million), offensive guard Marshal Yanda ($7.45 million),  cornerback Lardarius Webb ($7.385 million), quarterback Joe Flacco ($6.8 million), running back Ray Rice ($5.75 million) and offensive tackle Michael Oher ($4.95 million).
