So I guess the simple formula works here.

Well, I count 1 qualifying free agent signing (can't confirm Considine):
CB Corey Graham from the Bears for 2 years AAV APY: $1,975,000
By my estimation, he would be worth a 7th, so their net loss would be 5 at best, 4 at worst if Considine qualified. Since the max compensatory picks per team is 4, it's possible that the Ravens qualified for 5, but hit the limit at 4.
