Ravens sign safety Nick Perry as one of their top UDFA’s…

The Ravens signed a diamond in the rough when they picked up undrafted free agent Nick Perry, the safety from Alabama whom I had projected as a 5th rounder. Imagine—a $7500 signing bonus for what may turn out to be a starting safety for the Ravens someday—that’s a value investment and a gamble worth taking. […]


Ravens took over the catbird seat after Rounds 2 and 3…

Somehow Ozzie and his scouting crew got major needs on offense (WR and TE) addressed in the early rounds of the 2015 Draft without reaching, then used the remainder of the Ravens’ 10 picks to nicely fill in the depth at defensive line, cornerback, O-Line, running back and wide receiver. Charlie Casserly of the NFL […]


Baltimore Ravens Visit The Dawg Pound For This Season’s Most Expensive Ticket

The Baltimore Ravens were arguably the New England Patriots’ biggest competition in the 2015 postseason, but Joe Flacco’s four touchdown passes weren’t enough to take down the eventual Super Bowl champions. Even after a 10-win season in a division that received three bids to the playoffs, the Ravens will attack this season with a slightly […]


Baltimore is burning—but not for the Ravens…

The Baltimore Ravens practice in a facility at One Winning Drive in Owings Mills, Maryland— a good 30-minute drive from downtown Baltimore. But there is no “winning drive” in downtown Baltimore this week…and for some neighborhoods, never again… It’s all about losing in these afflicted sections of Baltimore— and a segment of society which inhabits […]


Two exclusive rights free agents the Ravens must sign…

From the Ravens personnel standpoint I had a concern that they were on the verge of losing two of their best young exclusive rights free agents— CB Rashaan Melvin and WR Kamar Aiken. Well, Rashaan Melvin signed his tender offer from the Ravens over the weekend— that’s a good thing for the Ravens’ depth at […]


What happens if Todd Gurley or Melvin Gordon are there at #26 for Ravens?

Teams don’t usually draft running backs in the 1st Round anymore—unless that running back is really, really special. Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon are both really special— and good enough to spend a #26 overall pick on by the Ravens if by fate either of the two should fall that low. It could happen. There’s […]


Fascinating look at how the Ravens front office works…

You can get the full video and audio replay of the Ravens’ Pre-Draft Press Conference at this link: Full 2015 Pre-Draft Press Conference Ozzie Newsome, John Harbaugh, Eric DeCosta and Joe Hortiz discussed their strategy heading into the draft. It’s an amazing insight into how well-thought out everything must be that goes into preparation for […]


The Elephant in the Ravens front office— Flacco’s contract…

I simply don’t worry about the escalation of Joe Flacco’s contract as quarterback of the Ravens. But a lot of fans and observers of the Ravens make it a big deal. Now Mike Florio is stirring it up as he does so well at Pro Football Talk. Typical of Florio, he tries to instigate a […]


A Drafttek mock draft to get Ravens fans thinking…

There are all kinds of 7-round mock drafts out there churning the urn of speculation about exactly how the Ravens plan to prioritize positions of need in the 2015 NFL Draft. Some mockers (like SB Nation) think the Ravens want to go running back in Round 1. Others say cornerback. Many say wide receiver.   […]


Say Hi to Matt Schaub—Ravens new backup QB

It looked like Matt Schaub was headed to the Jets…but the Ravens made him a better offer. That’s good for the Ravens in more ways than one—besides getting one of the best backups in the league, the Ravens will also not have to face Schaub as an opponent—and for some reason, the Ravens often had […]


The Owen Daniels reaction to the Ravens Way…

New Denver Broncos tight end Owen Daniels said after signing with Denver that he was surprised the Ravens didn’t make much of an effort to keep him. “Not as much as I thought they would. They came late with an offer, but it was after I had already committed to come here,” Daniels said, via […]
