Dennis-pitta
Pitta Tag

Dennis Pitta will be heading into this off-season as a free agent and Baltimore is not in the mood to let him go. The Ravens are faced with two choices, either sign him to a long term deal, or put him on the tag.

Pitta only played in four games last year, after the ball of his hip was blown out of the socket and pressed backward. This left the Ravens offense in a big hole, and they struggled without him.

Dennis has become a reliable outlet for Joe Flacco, and has become a part of the new era of tight ends. He finished the season with 20 receptions for 169 yards and a touchdown.



Pyro's take: Pitta is easily a top 10 tight end for fantasy football purposes, and is a young developing player. The old guards are falling fast, either due to injury or retirement, and Dennis is ready to step right in and deliver, and there is no way that Baltimore is going to want to let that get away from them.

I don't think that a long term contract is the right move, because of the hip injury, but the franchise tag will allow the Ravens to buy some time, and see how his hip responds. If he performs, then the team can feel free to sign him for the long term. Dennis Pitta has a lot to prove this year, and it shouldn't be long until he enters himself into that golden age of tight ends.

Pitta impressive in return

In the second half Sunday, Pitta and Flacco started to click and Pitta was clutch. Five of his six catches came after halftime. Three of them moved the chains. And one was his go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter. He also drew a big pass interference penalty on the game’s final drive. Pitta played about 35 snaps and after the game he said he felt fine.



Pyro's take: Pitta's return came in a blustery snowstorm, and he proved to be the clutch target Flacco had been missing. Flacco has struggled all season without having any reliable weapons in the passing game, after Pitta was injured in the preseason.

Pitta was impressive with six catches for 48 yards and a touchdown. This was all done on just 35 snaps, and mostly in the second half. You can see how Flacco is going to rely on Pitta on crucial third down and redzone plays. Pitta has a good chance to be the Ravens leading receiver the rest of the season.

If you lost Gronk...What are you waiting for??? Grab Pitta!!!

Pitta returns

"Ultimately, it's up to me and how I feel," said Pitta, who caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 regular-season games last year and 14 catches for 163 yards and three touchdowns in the postseason. "It's a rare injury in sports, so the doctors are relying on me to see how I feel and how my body responds and all that. We'll see. We'll see how it goes [Saturday], and we'll have to make some decisions in the next couple of days."

After seeing a hip specialist in New York earlier in the week, Pitta got the go-ahead to ramp up his practice activity. He said he felt good all week and that his hip passed all the necessary tests. One of the few hurdles remaining is for him to absorb a hit.

"You always want to see how you're going to respond after getting hit like that," Pitta said. "It's not something that you could simulate in rehab or even in practice. It will be nice to kind of take that first hit and just see how it feels."

Pyro's take: Pitta was activated today and will play tomorrow. It is unclear how many snaps he will play, but he will be a welcome sight for Joe Flacco.

#88 may be able to do some damage in a limited role, as he is facing the struggling Vikings defense. The Vikes are giving up nearly 10 points a game to tight ends.

If you grabbed Pitta and were thinking about starting him, realize he is a risky play this week. If he plays well in his limited role he will become an option next week.

Pitta Carted off the field today

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was carted off the field by trainers today during the third full-team practice of training camp.

During the first fully-padded practice of camp, Pitta was in a collision with strong safety James Ihedigbo. It was during a pass pattern to the back of the end zone.

Although there was no immediate status update on the nature of Pitta's injury, it was serious enough that he had to be helped off the field. As he was carted off the field, Pitta had a towel draped over his face.



Pyro's take: This is another potential major injury to top fantasy player early into training camps. Pitta figured to be one of the major targets for Joe Flacco, and now this could hamper the Ravens offense in a major way if Pitta's injury ends up being serious. Look for Ed Dickson to see an increased role if this is the case. We will update as we know more about the injury.

Pitta to be Joe Flacco's main target this season?

According to the Ravens' website, tight end Dennis Pitta has been Flacco's safety blanket and favorite target during offseason practices thus far.

Pyro's take: With Anquan Boldin now in San Francisco, this news should come as no surprise to anyone who watches football. Entering this offseason, Pitta was already high on the 2013 fantasy TE1 radar but is pretty much a lock for starter-status with all the salary-dumping moves Baltimore made after winning the Super Bowl. It doesn't hurt that Pitta and Flacco have an off-the-field 'bromance' that can only be rivaled by Tony Romo and Jason Witten.
