The Ravens missed out on free-agent wide receiver Malcom Floyd, who signed a two-year deal to stay with the San Diego Chargers.
The Ravens were long considered the front-runners for Floyd, a deep threat that the team coveted. According to a source, the Ravens couldn't create enough cap room to sign him.
It's presumed that the Ravens will turn their attention toward Derrick Mason, who is considering offers from the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans.
Other free agents available are: Steve Smith, Jerricho Cotchery, Randy Moss (who says he's retired), Terrell Owens (who is coming off knee surgery), Bryant Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.
The Ravens were looking at Floyd last year when he was a restricted free agent. He spent his first three seasons in NFL when Cam Cameron was the offensive coordinator in San Diego.
Floyd, 29, totaled 82 receptions for 1,493 yards (18.2-yard per catch average) the past three seasons.
