Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta restructures deal, wants to play this season

Baltimore Ravens veteran tight end Dennis Pitta wants to play again this season and is going to mount a comeback. Pitta is expected to participate in the Ravens' offseason program. "When Dennis has an announcement to make, he'll make it," the Ravens said in a statement. Pitta has twice dislocated and fractured his right hip and undergone surgeries. Pitta tried to play last season, but wasn't activated. The Ravens signed Pitta to a five-year, $32 million deal before the 2014 season that included $16 million guaranteed. Since that contract, Pitta has played in three games with 16 receptions. Pitta's contract has been restructured, according to The Baltimore Sun.
