The Baltimore Ravens have done a good job this offseason at re-signing their key free agents. Dennis Pitta and Eugene Monroe were the two biggest names to re-sign, and they were both brought back before the free agency signing period really got crazy.
Inside linebacker Daryl Smith was the best key free agent they had left needing to be re-signed. He finished the season with 123 tackles, five sacks, three interceptions and 19 passes defended and was a leader on the defense.
Smith will remain a raven after agreeing to a new 4-year deal:

Starting strong safety James Ihedigbo is the only remaining key free agent the Ravens would like to re-sign. He the team in tackles (103) in 2013 to go with three interceptions. It appears he's headed to the Lions, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
As of now, former Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith is the only platers visiting them on Friday.
