Blue roundup: Former Y. tight end Dennis Pitta vying to be starter for Baltimore Ravens
Now that the tight end Todd Heap has left the Baltimore Ravens for the Arizona Cardinals, the door is open for former BYU star Dennis Pitta to step into a possible role as a starter with the Ravens.
Pitta will be battling with Ed Dickson, who was also drafted by Baltimore last season.
"It's a big deal," Pitta said. "Obviously, everyone wants to be a starter in this league and that's my goal and I know it's everybody's goal, so I'm working and preparing myself to do so."
-- Here's a breakdown of the nation's independents from NBCSports.com.
"These are uncharted waters for BYU, who will now be exploring life outside a conference," writes Ben Kercheval. "The Cougars had to experience some growing pains last season with true freshman quarterback Jake Heaps, but Bronco Mendenhall’s squad finished strong, winning five of their last seven regular-season games. Look for the Cougars to get back to 10 wins this year."
