NFL free agency officially kicks off today at 4 p.m. ET, but that doesn't mean we've been lacking big news.
Here's all the Ravens news you need to know.
- Le'Veon Bell has chosen the New York Jets as his home for the next four years, reportedly agreeing to a deal worth $52.5 million. As he weighed his options over the last couple of days, reports linked Bell to the Ravens. While the Ravens were in the mix for the running back, they never presented Bell with an actual offer, according to sources of ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Ravens pulling back on Bell could further cement reports that Baltimore is interested in Saints running back Mark Ingram.
- C.J. Mosley wasn't the only Ravens defender that got paid Tuesday. Edge rusher Za'Darius Smith is expected to sign a four-year, $66 million contract with the Green Bay Packers, according to sources of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
- Wide receiver John Brown has found a new home with the Buffalo Bills. The 28-year-old has come to terms on a three-year, $27 million deal. Brown's receptions decreased when Lamar Jackson took over as QB. With Joe Flacco under center, the receiver had 34 receptions for 601 yards and four touchdowns.
- News broke Monday that Terrell Suggs would be leaving Baltimore after 16 years and would be headed for the Cardinals. The seven-time Pro Bowler is reportedly getting a one-year deal worth $7 million.
- In massive AFC North news, the Giants traded Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns Tuesday night in exchange for their 2019 first-round pick, second third-round pick and safety Jabril Peppers. The AFC North is shaping up to be the Browns' to lose.

- Prior to trading for OBJ, former Ravens first-round pick Breshad Perriman had reportedly agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal to return to the Browns. After the huge transaction between the Browns and the Giants, Perriman wanted out of the one-year deal - to which the Browns agreed - and the receiver quickly landed the same deal with the Buccaneers, according to cleveland.com.
