Ravens' Harbaugh texting potential undrafted free agents

In recent years the competition for un-drafted free agents has grown more intense, and the wooing of potential un-drafted free agents has already begun.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has been texting such possible possible candidates, according to league sources. Harbaugh's text explains the players' names have come up in draft meetings, how the Ravens would like to find a way to bring him in, and telling the players to feel free to call him with any questions or feedback.

The Philadelphia Eagles began sending letters to borderline draftable players about a year ago, laying the foundation for signing them after the draft.

The letters detailed Philly's interest in a player, and their intention to contact said player after the draft if he is not selected. The Indianapolis Colts, with rookie general manager Ryan Grigson having just left the Eagles a few months ago, have begun the process of sending letters to likely UFAs this year.

The Ravens have taken the recruitment of future players one step further with the sending of text messages. In the modern age, with more modes of communication than ever, all the best to take advantage of them.

Pioli began calling players, collect, a few days ago. This is United States calling, are we reaching?

Money and opportunity are all that matters... These guys have agents. It's not college.

The Chiefs better run all day and run all night
Keep their shitty QB hidden well out of sight
If you try to throw the ball down the field
Then all the Chiefs fans know their fate is sealed
And if you think I'm wrong don't call me a liar
Cause everyone wants Cassel to die in an Aids Tree Fire

You Better Run, Run, Run
