The limitations of the Ravens' passing game were apparent in the divisional-round loss to Indianapolis on Jan. 16. WR Derrick Mason did his part, snagging four passes for 64 yards, including a game-best 27-yard catch, but no other Ravens wideout caught more than one pass. QB Joe Flacco repeatedly checked down to RB Ray Rice, who caught nine passes for 60 yards. Mason, 36, is slated to be an unrestricted free agent, and he told he is unsure whether he will play in 2010. Reserve WR Kelley Washington also will be an unrestricted free agent, with Mark Clayton and Demetrius Williams to be restricted free agents if there is no salary cap. The passing offense looked vastly improved early in the season before regressing later in the season. Flacco, who battled a hip injury in the playoffs, has flashed considerable potential at points of his two-year career, and he's undoubtedly Baltimore's quarterback of the future. The makeup of his WR corps, however, could be different in 2010.
