It appears that linebacker Bart Scott and center Jason Brown will make their first free-agent visits to the St. Louis Rams, according to multiple reports.
Scott could still return to the Ravens, but Brown probably is headed elsewhere.
It is believed that the Ravens had offered Scott a five-year deal.
"We were close, but close only counts in horseshoes," Scott told ESPN early this morning, only minutes after free agency started. "I wanted to give Baltimore an opportunity to get the job done. It just didn't happen. We got to move on, hit free agency and see where it takes us."
Scott and Brown have the same agent.
After the Rams, one of Scott's visits could be to the New York Jets, where former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan is head coach.
But a league source said Scott's top choice remains the Ravens. He'll likely allow the Ravens to match any offer that he receives in free agency.
Meanwhile, Brown is expected to be pursued by the Rams, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings.
