    Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson added 12 to 15 pounds of muscle during the offseason and is throwing as well as usual, but we’re still waiting to see more of those vintage Jackson bursts when he runs. He hasn’t done much scrambling in training camp compared with the previous four seasons, so rarely has he turned the corner, accelerated and run away from defenders. However, Jackson did rush for a 65-yard touchdown on an option during the first hour of practice Friday. He certainly looked like the Jackson of old with the ability to run full speed and cut without slowing down, but those types of runs have come more from backup quarterback Tyler Huntley than Jackson. This isn’t to suggest Jackson has slowed down or been hampered by an injury. Maybe he just wants to focus more on making proper reads and staying in the pocket or improving his ability to throw on the run. Next man up Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expects starting rookie center Tyler Linderbaum to miss one to two weeks with a foot...
    Sam Koch, the longest-tenured player in Ravens history and a punter coach John Harbaugh hailed as “revolutionary,” announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday. Koch, 39, will join the Ravens’ coaching staff as a special teams consultant and work with rookie punter Jordan Stout, a fourth-round pick in last month’s NFL draft. Koch appeared in a franchise-record 256 regular-season games over his 16 seasons in Baltimore, including a record 239 in a row from 2006 to 2020. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the only active player who’s been with a team for longer, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. A Pro Bowl selection and All-Pro honoree in 2005, Koch had an outsize impact on the Ravens’ special teams excellence and punting across the sport. Former Ravens special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg called Koch the “best holder in the history of football” and credited him in part with the success of Ravens kickers Matt Stover and Justin Tucker, the NFL’s all-time leader in field-goal accuracy. Koch’s innovative approach at the position also expanded the range of kicks in...
    Ravens defensive back Anthony Levine Sr., who earned the nickname “Co-Cap” with his unfailing devotion to special teams play and his mentoring of younger teammates, has announced his retirement from the NFL after 12 seasons. He will remain with the organization as a scout and coaching assistant. Levine, 34, played 10 seasons for the Ravens, beginning his stint with the team in the Super Bowl season of 2012. He occasionally filled a substantial role as a defensive back, most notably in 2017, when he finished with 29 tackles and three sacks, and 2018, when he finished with 28 tackles and eight passes defended. But he was better known for embracing a leadership role on the Ravens’ perennially excellent special teams. He finished with a franchise-record 62 tackles in coverage. Ravens coach John Harbaugh has never hidden his affection for players such as Levine, who remained on the team through numerous roster change because of his willingness to take on unglamorous tasks. For example, he played just 31 defensive snaps but 402 special teams snaps in his final...
    Getty Baltimore Ravens running back Ty'Son Williams looks on during a November 2021 game. After season-ending injuries to running backs J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, Ty’Son Williams was expected to build on his breakout preseason as the Baltimore Ravens‘ featured back this year. It’s safe to say that the regular season hasn’t gone as planned for Williams, who gained 142 yards on 22 rushing attempts in the Ravens’ first two games, along with 45 receiving yards on five receptions. With almost 200 total yards across two games and averaging just under 6.5 yards per carry, Williams appeared poised to seize a leading role in Baltimore’s backfield, especially after a 34-yard touchdown in Week 1. Ty'Son Williams bursts through for the Ravens' first TD ????

Coming out of the bye, he saw even less work, getting zero carries against both the Minnesota...
    Getty Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott looks out over the field during Buffalo's matchup with the Bills. Sean McDermott and the Buffalo Bills had just punched their ticket to the AFC Championship for the first time since the 1993 season. They had also just limited Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson to 34 yards rushing 162 yards passing and no touchdowns. They put together a great game plan that limited the best rushing offense in the league to 150 yards and Josh Allen threw for 206 yards and a touchdown. It was another special performance for the Bills that has allowed them to gain the respect of the league week after week. So, Ravens coach John Harbaugh met with McDermott at midfield and wished him the best of luck moving forward. In fact, he told him he hopes Buffalo wins the whole thing which is something the Bills have never done in the history of the franchise. "Hope you win the whole thing." John Harbaugh to Sean McDermott after the game.pic.twitter.com/EepLKq3agc — Sporting News (@sportingnews) January 17, 2021...
    John Harbaugh and Joe Judge rose through the ranks and made it all the way to the top, positioned as NFL head coaches, via unconventional pathways. Both primarily worked with special teams as assistants or coordinators in a league where offensive and defensive expertise is the usual ticket to the big seat.  Judge had one year coaching wide receivers with the Patriots, and Harbaugh had one year coaching defensive backs with the Eagles. Other than that, it was all special teams for Judge and Harbaugh, before becoming head coaches. Judge’s Giants and Harbaugh’s Ravens square off Sunday; they are the only two head coaches in the league with résumés steeped primarily in special teams.  “Yeah, I am actually surprised that more teams don’t go that route,’’ Harbaugh said. “There have been some great, great coaches who have been coaching special teams in this league for a long time, all the way back to when I first broke in, in ’98 … just amazing coaches that never really got a shot.’’  Harbaugh mentioned Pete Rodriguez, Scott O’Brien, Brad Seely and Joe...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Ravens rookie wider receiver Devin Duvernay showcased his speed when he returned a kickoff 93-yards for a touchdown on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. Duvernay’s kickoff return for a touchdown was the first for any team in the 2020 NFL season. Ultimately, Duvernay’s touchdown return was not enough, as the Ravens fell to the Chiefs 34-20. Duvernay spoke to the media Friday about the special moment. “It was definitely a confidence booster,” Duvernay said. “Not that I was lacking any, but it was fun to do. Happy I got the chance and opportunity to return one. It was me just trying to take advantage of my opportunities.” Duvernay also said that head coach John Harbaugh told him before the game that he could see him making a big play and having an impact on the game. “The fact he called it was pretty special,” Duvernay said. It’s no secret that Duvernay can get the job done on special teams. But can the Ravens find a way to incorporate him into their already loaded offense?...
