The Baltimore Ravens will undergo many changes in 2014. There are several players that could get big play days on the open market. Yes, that time of year is here. Free agency.

Here is a look at all of the Ravens’ free agents this offseason:

Restricted Free Agents

A player who has received a qualifying offer from their current team but can still negotiate with another team through the free agent signing period. If a player accepts an offer from the new team, his old team can try to match the offer or decide not to match the offer and instead, receive draft-choice compensation from the new team.

Players become restricted free agents when they complete three accrued seasons and their contract expires.

The Ravens Restricted Free Agents are:

Wide receiver Tandon Doss

Linebacker Albert McClellan

Unrestricted Free Agents

An unrestricted free agent may sign with any NFL team, with no compensation owed to his old team, once the new league year begins on March 11. According to Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com, “The Ravens have the ability to negotiate with their unrestricted free agents, or use the franchise tag to keep one of them, but other teams do not have to provide any compensation for signing the UFAs like they do for restricted UFAs.”

In order to become a unrestricted free agent, a player must have completed four or more accrued seasons with an expired contract.

The Ravens Unrestricted Free Agents are:

Tight end Dallas Clark

Nose tackle Terrence Cody

Tight end Ed Dickson

Cornerback Corey Graham

Safety James Ihedigbo

Defensive tackle Arthur Jones

Wide receiver Jacoby Jones

Safety Jeromy Miles

Left tackle Eugene Monroe

Right tackle Michael Oher

Tight end Dennis Pitta

Running back Bernard Scott

Middle linebacker Daryl Smith

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley (retiring)

Exclusive Rights Free Agent

To become an Exclusive Rights Free Agent, a player has to have two accrued NFL seasons whose contracts have expired, but do not have the ability to sign with another team unless their current team chooses not to re-sign them.

The Ravens exclusive rights free agents are:

Safety Omar Brown

Outside linebacker D.J. Bryant

Inside linebacker Josh Bynes

Outside linebacker Adrian Hamilton
