The Ravens don't have much wiggle room with $1.957 million available under the NFL salary cap of $123 million.

That includes a 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.

Williams received a nearly $100,000 injury settlement for his hamstring injury -- three game checks.

The Ravens recently 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).
