Happy Wednesday, Ravens Flock! I hope the week has treated you well.

As we all know, this is the long part of the NFL offseason, as we get ready for a little over two months of grueling boredom waiting for the preseason to roll around. With how excited the fans are for a Ravens team anticipating a jump back to dominance in 2022, it’s only going to make the wait even more agonizing.

Thankfully, the good ole bird app has plenty of content for us to discuss. Better yet, Baltimore made a couple roster moves yesterday for us to recap! So, let’s not waste any more time and go Out to Lunch on this lovely Wednesday to see what’s going on with the Flock on the Twitter sphere.

Starting things off is the Baltimore Ravens 2022 draft class seeing their own jerseys with the team for the first time.

An awesome moment here for the Baltimore Ravens’ incoming rookie class, as the 2022 draft picks got to see their jerseys for the first time yesterday. This is truly a dream come true for all these young men who have worked their whole lives to get to the NFL and have dreamed of the moment that they saw their names on a jersey that they’d get to wear on an NFL field. It’s an experience that these guys will never forget, and we couldn’t be more excited for them.

Not that we’re biased or anything, but those jerseys all look fire!

Here’s another look at our rookies in their jerseys and helmets:

These kids sure do look sharp in those Ravens uniforms!

In some team news, the Ravens added a new running back to the squad yesterday afternoon:

Mike Davis has spent seven seasons in the NFL, playing for five different teams before Baltimore. In those seven, Davis has racked up 3,096 scrimmage yards and 18 touchdowns including a 2020 season where he toppled 1,000 scrimmage yards and scored eight times.

Davis may not be some earth-shattering signing, but it is nonetheless a quality depth move for the team. Remember, the Ravens are returning three running backs (JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill) from season-ending injuries, as well as a rookie sixth-round draft choice in Tyler Baddie for the current running back stable. Davis has missed just two games over the last two seasons and has proven to be at least a competent option for his teams. Jeff Zrebiec had this to say on the signing:

Davis has proven to be a hard-running player with grit and drive to out-muscle his opposition. See for yourself:

While he’s far from the biggest player on the field, standing at just 5’9”, his heart is immeasurable and it shows on plays like this.

For what it’s worth, Davis has some big quads:

While Davis may not officially have the nickname “Quadzilla,” it wouldn’t be crazy to call him such!

The signing of Davis did, unfortunately, spell the end of running back Ty’Son Williams’s stint with the team, however. Baltimore ended up withdrawing their tender for Williams and he is now an unrestricted free agent.

Many were wondering what went wrong with Williams after a brilliant first couple of games with the team, but it was evident that he was firmly in John Harbaugh’s doghouse very early on, especially when we look back on this particular interview:

We are certainly hoping the best for Williams, as many believed that he could’ve been stellar with the flashes that he gave fans and the team in his small amount of time on the field.

With all this talk about running the football, here is a cool (and obvious) stat for you to end this edition of Out to Lunch:

Anybody who has watched the Baltimore Ravens play football since 2018 should be well aware of how great of a run game the team has had. Seeing the Ravens at the top of this list is anything but surprising, but the gap between them and second place is astonishing to say the least.

Have a great week, Ravens Flock! We are halfway there to the weekend and another week closer to Baltimore Ravens football!
