Brendon Ayanbadejo on American Ninja Warrior
The former Ravens special teams ace and linebacker has turned his training into a different athletic activity. In this qualifier, he looks like he’s going strong, but doesn’t quite make it on a part of the course called “the spin cycle.” Start it at 6:30 to watch him go (and stick around for the boy scout after if you have time).
Brent Urban has a valid excuse for missing OTAs yesterday
Yesterday, John Harbaugh announced at his press conference that Brent Urban missed practice due to personal reasons. Apparently, one fan wouldn’t be satisfied until he found out exactly why. He questioned Urban’s work ethic for missing the voluntary practice after missing his entire rookie season with an injury.
The tweet has since been deleted. Urban also thanked fans for their support in a later tweet.
Bo Smolka of CSN Baltimore recaps yesterday’s OTAs which were open to the media. He observes that the defensive line has a LOT of options, including the 1-2 punch of Timmy Jernigan and Brandon Williams and the rookie Carl Davis. He also makes observations about Darren Waller, the secondary, Za’Darius Smith, and Justin Forsett. LINK

Joe Redemann of numberFire lists the 5 first round picks most likely to bust. He puts Breshad Perriman in that category. Although I don’t think that Perriman will bust, I think it’s a fair assessment. As is usually the case when analysts raise concerns regarding Perriman, the drop rate is the mean reason for Joe’s doubts. LINK
