Ravens Free Agency News & Rumors Roundup: Baltimore Signs Ben Watson, Tenders Kamar Aiken

NFL Free Agency starts on March 9th, and the next few days will feature several Baltimore Ravens rumors. While free agency doesn't officially start until Wednesday, the league has "legal tampering" days leading up to the start of the new team year, meaning teams can discuss contracts with any player - although a deal can't be signed until Wednesday. With that in mind, here are a few of the more interesting rumors and news tidbits on the Ravens.

Ravens sign Ben Watson
Baltimore has reached an agreement with veteran free agent tight end Ben Watson, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec:

Watson had 74 catches for 825 yards and six touchdowns with the Saints last year.

Raiders sign Osemele away from Ravens
The Oakland Raiders have agreed to a massive deal with former Baltimore Ravens guard Kelechi Osemele, reports NFL Network's Rand Getlin.

The 26-year-old is widely considered to be one of the best interior linemen in the league, but has the versatility to play tackle if necessary.

Baltimore puts second-round tender on Kamar Aiken
The Ravens have placed a second-round tender on wide receiver Kamar Aiken, meaning that Baltimore would get a second-round pick if a team gives Aiken an offer that the Ravens refuse to match. Aiken will make over $2.5 million next season unless another team signs him. The 26-year-old set career highs with 75 catches for 944 yards and five touchdowns last season.
