Draft Scout Dennis Pitta News
06/09/17 - TE Dennis Pitta suffered a third hip injury in four years and was released with an injury waiver. His career could be over. "Dennis' injury obviously is a disappointment," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Thursday at the team's OTA. "It wasn't something that wasn't possible. We all understood that. Dennis did. ... You want to have as many good players as you can and that's why you don't want to lose anyone. But we are deep at (tight end)."

He agreed to a $2.5 million salary to return to the Ravens this season. Pitta, 31, dislocated his hip on Friday for the third time in five years and the latest could be a career-ending injury. He will need surgery to repair the hip.
