2 MINUTE WARNING: Ravens News and Notes

Daryl Smith
Vonta Leach still hasn’t signed with another club and the longer this process goes on, the more likely the chances are that he’ll be dressed in purple again for the 2013 season. The fact that he remains unsigned is a clear signal that the offers being presented by allegedly interested teams aren’t measurably better than the offer he has on the table from the Ravens. This process looks and feels a lot like that of Bryant McKinnie when the Ravens offensive tackle visited with other teams. Training camps across the...

Hero- A person of distinguished courage or ability. For the past few years I have had the opportunity to see many NFL player positives in the community. I have witnessed smiles that would melt snow on the coldest day of the year and I have seen smiles that made many of the toughest football players shed a tear.

The Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals wide receivers traveled to Ethiopia with Oxfam for a first-hand account of the drought and famine affecting more than 13 million people in the region. Boldin and Fitzgerald embarked on a four-day trip across Ethiopia, which began this past March. The duo met with villagers affected by the crisis, local Oxfam partner organizations, and internationally known Ethiopian...

The Good, Bad, Ugly & The Megan Fox: A Win is a Win!

Anquan Boldin v Browns
In baseball you will often hear that the difference between a good pitcher and a great pitcher is his ability to win when he doesn’t have his “A” game. Perhaps the same can be said of an NFL football team. Last night the Ravens delivered a performance that many expected. It was their fourth game in 18 days.  Not only is that extremely taxing physically, it is also mentally draining. The entire process of the workweek is accelerated and the implementation of game plan after game plan can run together...
