Four Ravens in final contract year who must be extended…

The Ravens have about two months left to negotiate extended contracts for some very important pieces of their 2015 roster— or risk losing them as free agents in 2016. Those Four Important Guys are: Guard Kelechi Osemele; Guard Marshal Yanda; Kicker Justin Tucker; Outside Linebacker Courtney Upshaw. Osemele and Yanda are one of the best […]


Ravens make savvy pickup by signing CB Kyle Arrington…

Ozzie Newsome wasn’t kidding when he said he was going to add more cornerbacks to the Ravens roster. Kyle Arrington is a quality veteran corner who specializes in the slot but can cover outside, too. When the Patriots balked at extending Arrington’s contract for the $4 million he expected to make in 2015, they let him […]


Ravens rookie camp finishes as team announces joint practice with Eagles…

It was a productive weekend for the Ravens’ drafted and undrafted rookies with the exception of undrafted cornerback from Oklahoma Julian Wilson, who suffered a season-ending injury in Friday’s practice when he broke his lower leg after falling while defending a passing route. You hate to see that. It was the first pro practice of […]


Ed Reed retires as a Raven—next stop, Hall of Fame…

The safety who spent 11 seasons with the Ravens (2002-2012) and one with the Texans and Jets (2013) will be on the Ravens’ 90-man roster until 4 p.m. Friday, then will be placed on the team’s reserve/retired list. On Thursday, May 7, 2015, Reed signed his final contract and officially retired as a Baltimore Raven. […]


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 […]
