    Getty Eric DeCosta is concerned a key Ravens' free agent will be "highly sought after." Eric DeCosta has a few pressing priorities entering free agency, not least resolving the future of quarterback Lamar Jackson. Yet, Jackson isn’t the only name on the to-do list for the Baltimore Ravens’ general manager. DeCosta would also like to retain the services of left guard Ben Powers. Unfortunately, the GM believes Powers will be “highly sought after” on the veteran market, per The Baltimore Banner’s Jonas Shaffer: Eric DeCosta said the Ravens would "love" to keep Ben Powers but imagines that he'll be highly sought after in free agency. "I'm very happy for him and his family." — Jonas Shaffer (@jonas_shaffer) January 19, 2023 DeCosta’s concern is well founded after Powers enjoyed a breakout season during which he started a career-high 15 games. The 26-year-old became a pillar of the Ravens’ offensive line and the team’s prolific rushing schemes.Solid Starter Going From Strength to Strength Read More From Heavy Cash in on NFL Wild Card Weekend: Bet $5, Get $150 in Free Bets...
    Getty Ravens DB Kyle Hamilton combined with ILB Roquan Smith on a tackle in a regular season game on January 8, 2023. Even though the Baltimore Ravens 2022 season ended in the Wildcard round of the playoffs, the recognition for some of their best players keeps rolling in. Several members of their 11-man rookie draft class and undrafted free agent crop made meaningful contributions in 2022 and three of them were recognized by being named to the NFL.com Offensive and Defensive All-Rookie Teams. Former No. 1 overall pick turned NFL.com analyst, David Carr, and NFL.com Around the NFL writer, Kevin Patra, compiled the two lists that featured a trio of the team’s top first-year players for their standout inaugural seasons. Kyle Hamilton Improved Immensely Once His Role Evolved The first-round safety had a rough first couple of weeks to start his rookie year which led to decreased playing time while defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald figured out how and when to use him. Down the second half stretch of the season, the dynamic defensive back became a consistently disruptive force...
    Getty The Ravens must unleash their own version of Emmitt Smith to beat the Bengals in the playoffs. Throwing the football won’t help the Baltimore Ravens beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Super Wild Card Weekend. Not with quarterback Lamar Jackson officially ruled out of the playoff matchup at Paycor Stadium on Sunday, January 15. Instead, the Ravens will need to win the way they always do, by running the ball. Fortunately, a Jackson-less offense has the perfect weapon for this gameplan, J.K. Dobbins, a running back compared to three Hall of Famers, including Emmitt Smith, a three-time Super Bowl winner with the Dallas Cowboys and the NFL’s all-time leading rusher. Turning their own version of Smith loose, while combining his production with a strong defensive effort, is the Ravens’ only hope of springing an upset.J.K. Dobbins Needs a Heavy Workload The Ravens listed Jackson as “out” on the official injury report on Friday, January, 13, so Dobbins will be more important than usual in the playoffs: Game status: pic.twitter.com/THYTlmSs4b — Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) January 13, 2023 Read More...
    Getty Ravens QB Lamar Jackson could be in jeopardy of missing his first playoff game and the sixth in the row this year. The Baltimore Ravens are back in the playoffs after a one-year hiatus but the likelihood of them having star quarterback, Lamar Jackson, back under center for the primetime Wildcard bout with the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football is not looking good according to several discouraging reports. Per sources informed of the two-time Pro Bowler’s ongoing injury situation, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday, January 11, 2023, that Jackson continues to deal with a PCL injury he suffered in Week 13 and “faces an uphill battle” to play this upcoming week. From NFL Now: It's been nearly a month and a half, but #Ravens QB Lamar Jackson's knee still doesn't feel right to him. It's no one's fault. But it's why he's considered to be a long-shot to play on Sunday. pic.twitter.com/6abGpv1DHf — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 11, 2023 “Not looking good for Lamar Jackson,” Rapoport said on NFL Network’s Good...
    Getty Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt is being tabbed as potential target for the Ravens in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. With the college football bowl season and NFL regular season coming to an end, early projections for how the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft will shake out are rolling in. In the initial rounds of mock drafts, analysts foresee the Baltimore Ravens putting an emphasis on upgrading and adding more talent at three premium positions and one devalued position where they already have a pair of studs already on the roster. Ravens Find Replacement for Three-Time Pro Bowl CBThe team currently has one of the best tandems at the position in the whole league with Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters, both of which are three-time Pro Bowlers. Unfortunately, Humphrey is the only one under contract after this season while Peters is set to become a free agent this spring. He’ll be 30 years old on January 9, 2023, and hasn’t quite been the same consistently disruptive playmaker in his first year back from...
    Getty Images Deshaun Watson of the Cleveland Browns. The Baltimore Ravens are looking forward to welcoming new Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson to the AFC North. The Browns will take on the Ravens on Saturday and Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey is looking forward to seeing Watson, who Cleveland traded for this offseason and is playing his third contest after an 11-game ban. “We want to give him a not-so-soft welcoming,” Humphrey said. “So, it’s cool to welcome him to the rivalry. Hopefully, it won’t be a good rivalry-welcoming for him.” Humphrey did have some praise for Watson and understands that it’s not the easiest of tasks to slow him down, especially with limited film on him in a Browns uniform. “They paid a lot of money to Deshaun and have a lot of faith in him, and he’s obviously one of those top five, top 10 quarterbacks in the league. [There’s] limited film, [and] it’s kind of only heating up, so it’s not really the best time to play him, but we look forward to the challenge.” Watson...
    Getty A versatile Ravens playmaker is lacking confidence and explosive plays. Lamar Jackson’s PCL injury isn’t the only reason to be concerned about the Baltimore Ravens’ offense. The unit is also being hamstrung by a lack of confidence among key members of Jackson’s supporting cast. In particular, one dynamic playmaker is no longer making explosive contributions in two phases of the game. The Ravens needs this versatile speedster to rediscover his early-season swagger and add the missing big-play dimension to an offense set to be led by Jackson’s backup Tyler Huntley.Triple-Threat Weapon Not Making an ImpactDevin Duvernay isn’t playing quickly enough for Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. He’s not sure whether the wide receiver is “battling an injury, dealing with the normal wear and tear at this point of the season or just worn down from playing a significant role on offense and special teams, but it certainly doesn’t look like Duvernay is as explosive or as confident with the ball in his hands.” Whatever the root cause of the issue, Zrebiec noticed how hesitant and sluggish Duvernay...
    Getty The Ravens aren't getting enough "impactful plays" from a first-round pick. The Baltimore Ravens have an embarrassment of riches at the edges of their front seven. A cadre of dynamic pass-rushers who are starting to elevate the playmaking potential of coordinator Mike Macdonald’s defense. Macdonald is getting sterling contributions from a productive veteran like Justin Houston. He’s also coaxing big plays from those returning from injury, including last season’s sack leader, Tyus Bowser. What Macdonald isn’t getting is many “impactful plays” from a former first-round pick. This edge-rusher is struggling to get on the stat sheet in Year 2.First-Rounder Being Outpaced by 12-Year VeteranOdafe Oweh needs to do more, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic: “Much was expected this year from 2021 first-round pick Odafe Oweh, and he just hasn’t been able to gain any momentum. Oweh has one sack and five quarterback hits. He’s probably played a bit better than those numbers indicate. Still, the Ravens need more and Oweh is capable of more. Where are the impactful plays?” Oweh’s paltry numbers are the main...
    Getty Ravens WR Rashod Bateman will miss the remainder of the 2022 regular season. The Baltimore Ravens will be without their top wide receiver for the remainder of the 2022 season after head coach John Harbaugh told reporters that second-year pro Rashod Bateman elected to have season-ending Lisfranc foot surgery. Coach Harbaugh announces Rashod Bateman will have surgery: pic.twitter.com/JixEi8Sib5 — Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) November 3, 2022 The 2021 first-round pick reaggravated a foot sprain in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he has suffered missed two games as a result of earlier in the season. Earlier in the week, Harbaugh said that his injury was more severe than they initially thought and that Bateman would miss a “few weeks”. He will be placed on season-ending injured reserve and finished his second year in the league with 15 receptions for 285 receiving yards and three touchdowns. When he was healthy, Bateman flashed the playmaking potential of a true No. 1 wide receiver and averaged 19 yards per catch. HOLY BATMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THE Chicago Bears have traded away another key piece of their defense ahead of the looming trade deadline. Linebacker Roquan Smith, the league's leader in tackles, has been traded to the Baltimore Ravens, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 1Smith, 25, was a team captain for the BearsCredit: Getty Images - Getty According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the trade sees a 2023 second-round pick and a 2023 fifth-round pick head to Chicago. Combine this with the fourth-round pick acquired by the Bears when they traded defensive end Robert Quinn to the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles last week, and it appears that this already young team is focusing all its attention on bulking up with youth in next year's draft. Meanwhile, the Ravens acquire a two-time Second-Team All-Pro who, at just 25 years old, could realistically have his best days ahead of him. Currently, in the final year of his rookie deal, the Ravens will likely look to get a new contract signed as soon as possible in order to tie him down for the long term.

    Getty Patriots WR Kendrick Bourne is one of the realistic trade options that the Ravens could explore at the deadline. During his first three full years at the helm of the team’s front office, Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta has been one the most aggressive executives at the midseason trade deadline. This year’s cut-off point will come on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at 4 p.m. Eastern. DeCosta hasn’t shied away from going after big names to address and bolster premium positions, especially on the defensive side of the ball. In 2019, he acquired All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters at the deadline in a swindle of a deal. The following year, he traded for Pro Bowl pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue and last season, he reportedly tried to acquire three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Xavien Howard from the Miami Dolphins but didn’t have enough cap space to swing the trade. According to spotrac.com, the Ravens currently have just $2.27 million in available cap space. With some creative accounting or extending a key player or two, DeCosta could potentially make a move...
    Getty Ravens TE Isaiah Likely runs after the catch in a regular season game on October 27, 2022. The Baltimore Ravens entered their Week 8 interconference matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with their top two weapons in the passing game dealing with an injury to a lower extremity. All-Pro tight end Mark Andrews sat out the entire short week of practice leading up to the Thursday Night Football primetime bout. He caught passes on the team’s first two plays from scrimmage for 27 yards but when he caught his third on the team’s first drive of the second quarter, it would be his last of the night. He left the field after going down hard on his right shoulder and did not return. On the ensuing drive, Ravens No. 1 wide receiver, Rashod Bateman, would see his last play of the first half and game overall as well when he was targeted deep down the right sideline on an incomplete pass. Several of their Ravens’ complementary pass catchers answered the call in the 27-22 win after both...
    Tom Brady is now two games below .500 for the first time in his career after the Bucs lost to the Ravens on Thursday night and the trolls were quick to act. Trailing by 11 points late in the fourth quarter, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady spiked the ball into the ground as he turned away from his offensive line after the whistle blew a play dead on a false start on fourth-and-goal. And that pretty much summed up the night for the Bucs and their all-world quarterback against the Baltimore Ravens. Lamar Jackson had a strong night overall as he finished with 238 passing yards and two scores to go along with 43 rushing yards. Between that and a defensive effort that held Brady and the Tampa offense to just two end zone trips, they were able to recover a late onside kick and pick up a crucial road win, 27-22. But as the Ravens moved to 5-3 on the season, they were seemingly an afterthought as the continued struggles of Brady and the Bucs were at the...
    Getty The Ravens have been named a "great fit" for a former Raiders' first-round pick. Safety help may not be a pressing need for the Baltimore Ravens, but that could change if there’s a chance to add a former first-round pick in trade. It’s an idea put forward by one NFL writer who believes the Ravens could acquire a Las Vegas Raiders defensive back on the cheap. The player concerned is being touted as a potential replacement for Marcus Williams, the free safety now on injured reserve. It’s an intriguing suggestion because the Ravens have already been getting help from within, thanks to Geno Stone’s recent performances and some smarter use of 14th-overall pick Kyle Hamilton. Trading for another safety may seem like an unnecessary luxury, but the Ravens haven’t been shy in the past about stacking talent at key positions.2019 First-Rounder Right for RavensJohnathan Abram is “a great fit” for the Ravens, according to Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox. He also believes this is a deal the Ravens can afford: “Baltimore has only $3 million in cap space, but...
    Getty Ravens CB Marcus Peters celebrates a play in a regular season game on October 2, 2022. One of the most visceral reactions to the Baltimore Ravens Week 4 loss came in the waning seconds of the game as the Buffalo Bills set up for the game-winning chip shot field goal from 21 yards out. Three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters got into a heated discussion with head coach John Harbaugh on the sidelines and had to be restrained by teammates and coaches. Marcus Peters is pissed and deservingly so…. pic.twitter.com/0yTuFTlcnf — JDM (@Joshua__DM) October 2, 2022 After not saying much about it in his postgame comments outside of admitting that emotions were running high, Harbaugh addressed the incident in his press conference the following day October 3, 2022, and doubled down on his belief that their relationship won’t be negatively impacted moving forward. “Marcus is an emotional guy; I’m an emotional guy,” he said. “I’m not worried about that at all. We’ll be fine. What I said last night about Marcus stands, that’s how I feel about...
    Getty The Ravens could call a different game on one side of the ball in 2022. Through the first three weeks of the 2022 regular season, the Baltimore Ravens have the top offense in the NFL and are averaging a league-high 33 points per game. Much of the credit has been given to their dynamic dual-threat quarterback and MVP front runner, Lamar Jackson, and deservedly so given that the vast majority of the unit’s production has been thanks to his sensational throwing and running ability. However, the unsung hero of the team’s hot start to the season on that side of the ball is the person who designs and calls the plays. Ravens’ offensive coordinator Greg Roman has been the scapegoat that many disgruntled fans, various analysts, and countless media pundits have pointed to for most of the team’s shortcomings and inconsistencies over the last couple of years. Doubters and critics have been calling for the team to relieve him of his duties dating back to the 2020 season when he was less than a year removed from...
    Getty Ravens DT Justin Madubuike celebrates making a play in regular season opener on September 11, 2022. The Baltimore Ravens opened the 2022 regular season with a 24-9 victory over the New York Jets in the first of their four-game gauntlet against the AFC East. They were in control for most of the game, made the plays that needed to be made at key moments, and had several standout performances by individual players and entire position groups. Dominant Defense Led The Way The Ravens were carried and led to victory by an impressively suffocating defensive effort by first-year play-caller Mike Macdonald’s remodeled unit. They relentlessly pressured former Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco from start to finish, tackled well in the open field for the most part, and forced multiple turnovers, all of which were areas where they struggled to consistently execute in 2021. The interior of the defensive line was the most dominant position group on either side of the ball in this game and spearheaded the pass rush. Michael Pierce forced a fumble and generated the most pressure...
    Getty The Baltimore Ravens convert a touchdown versus the New York Jets. After a decent two-quarter performance from the New York Jets defense, the floodgates finally opened in the second half against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Getty Ravens RB Kenyan Drake runs in open field in season opener on September 13, 2022. With their top two running backs coming off torn ACL’s in J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, the Baltimore Ravens pounced at the opportunity add an experienced player that brings a different element to their backfield that they haven’t had in awhile. The team announced the official signing of Kenyan Drake on August 30, 2022, after bringing him in for a visit a few days earlier on August 31, 2022. At just 28 years old, the former Miami Dolphin, Arizona Cardinal, and Las Vegas Raider is a young veteran with a wealth of experience and dynamic skill set that will allow him to be on the field on almost every down and be deployed in a plethora of ways in the Ravens’ offense. “He’s a back who has had a lot of exciting plays in this league,” head coach John Harbaugh said in a press conference on August 31, 2022. “He’s a big, strong, fast, kind of slasher-type back [with] experience in pass...

Notably, the start of the second half was delayed by Poe’s injury, “who...
    Getty This Ravens rookie already has the "it" factor. The Baltimore Ravens wowed many observers with their 2022 NFL draft class. Most of the plaudits concerned general manager Eric DeCosta trading his way into two first-round picks and taking safety Kyle Hamilton and center Tyler Linderbaum off the board. As good as they were, those may not have been the best moves DeCosta made. Instead, one of his many mid-round selections is already turning heads this preseason. In fact, this initially unheralded rookie has been declared a “perfect” fit for a key role by a leading analytics site.4th-Round Pick Has “It” FactorIsaiah Likely wasn’t as highly touted as the other tight end the Ravens drafted in the fourth round, Iowa State’s Charlie Kolar. Yet, it’s Likely who is already looking like a star. The former Coastal Carolina standout has merited special praise from Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus. Specifically, Renner believes Likely has the much-coveted “it” factor: “Tight end is one of those positions where you can see the players who have ‘it’ right away. By ‘it,’...

    Getty Former Ravens backup QB Trace McSorley throws on the run. While the Baltimore Ravens were busy extending their historic win streak in Week 1 of the 2022 preseason, some of their former players that began or spent a stint of their career in Charm City enjoyed stand out performances with their new teams. Here are a few familiar faces in new places that shined in their respective preseason openers: QB Trace McSorely, Arizona Cardinals The former 2019 sixth-round pick served as the Ravens’ backup quarterback behind Lamar Jackson from 2019-2020 and started the 2021 season on the team’s practice squad until he was signed to the Cardinals’ active roster on November 23, 2021. He was active for just four games during his time in Baltimore and saw action in just three. His most memorable moments were the part he played setting up Lamar Jackson for the epic finish on Monday Night Football in Week 14 of the 2020 season and almost coming from behind to beat the Steelers in Week 12 of that same year in relief...

    LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have placed receiver Marquise Brown on the NFL’s active/non-football injury list because of a hamstring issue. The Cardinals acquired Brown and a third-round pick in a draft-day trade with the Baltimore Ravens back in April. The Ravens received the No. 23 overall pick in return. Arizona hopes Brown can partially offset the loss of DeAndre Hopkins, who will miss the season’s first six games for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Brown caught 91 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns last season with Baltimore. He also played college football with Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray at Oklahoma. Brown counts toward the team’s 90-man preseason roster limit but can’t practice or play in a game until he comes off the list. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    Getty A trade for one Patriots' RB makes sense for the Ravens. Running back should be a position of strength for the Baltimore Ravens, but injuries and inexperience could ensure otherwise. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are both recovering from setbacks that kept them out last season, and so is Justice Hill. General manager Eric DeCosta attempted to find some insurance for this crocked trio via both free agency and the 2022 NFL draft. The latter route yielded Tyler Badie, but he’s a sixth-round pick who will have to surprise a lot of people in order to earn significant carries as a rookie. Free agency bought the Ravens Mike Davis, but the 29-year-old bombed as a member of the Atlanta Falcons a year ago. Against this backdrop of uncertainty, DeCosta would be smart to add a proven and productive runner, and a trade with the New England Patriots could make it happen.

    Tony Siragusa, the charismatic defensive tackle who helped lead a stout Baltimore defense to a Super Bowl title, has died. He was 55. Siragusa’s broadcast agent, Jim Ornstein, confirmed the death Wednesday. The cause of death was not immediately available. “This is a really sad day,” he said. “Tony was way more than my client, he was family. My heart goes out to Tony’s loved ones.” Siragusa, known as “the Goose,” played seven seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and five with the Ravens. Baltimore’s 2000 team won the Super Bowl behind a defense that included Siragusa, Ray Lewis and Sam Adams. Siragusa was popular with fans because of his fun-loving personality, which also helped him transition quickly to broadcasting after his playing career. Siragusa came to Baltimore as a free agent in 1997 and teamed up with Adams to form an imposing defensive tackle tandem. In the Ravens’ 2000 championship season, the 6-foot-3, 340-pound Siragusa was sixth among Baltimore defenders with 75 tackles. He finished his career with 22 sacks. The news of Siragusa’s death came on what was already...
    Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has died at age 26. Ferguson, nicknamed “Sack Daddy,” played three NFL seasons, all with Baltimore. He set the career sacks record in the college Football Bowl Subdivision (45) when he played at Louisiana Tech. Police said the cause of death is still to be determined. “On June 21, 2022, at approximately 11:25 p.m., Northern District patrol officers responded to a home in the 400 block of Ilchester Avenue for a report of a questionable death,” Baltimore police said. “Once there, officers located 26-year-old Jaylon Ferguson, unresponsive, being treated by medics. Ferguson never regained consciousness and was pronounced dead on the scene by medics. No signs of trauma was found or foul play suspected at this time.” Ferguson was drafted by the Ravens in the third round in 2019, and played in 38 games as a pro with 4 1/2 sacks. “We are profoundly saddened by the tragic passing of Jaylon Ferguson,” the Ravens said in a statement. “He was a kind, respectful young man with a big smile and infectious personality.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — In a show of friendly competition, Baltimore Ravens and Washington Commanders rookies shared a field box at Camden Yards Tuesday night to watch their baseball counterparts match off in a “Battle of the Beltway.” First-round pick Kyle Hamilton threw out the first pitch to Orioles veteran Trey Mancini. Besides being birds of a Baltimore feather, both Hamilton and Mancini hail from the University of Notre Dame. .@kyledhamilton_ checking in from Camden Yards ⚾️ pic.twitter.com/hkfNJIxjVq — Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) June 21, 2022 READ MORE: Maryland Weather: Chance Of Thunderstorms In Much Of State Wednesday AfternoonHamilton joined his new teammates to cheer on the O’s after the pitch, right beside fellow rookies rooting for the Washington Nationals.

The Baltimore Ravens are being lauded for the quality of their 2022 draft class, with NFL.com giving the team an ‘A’ grade and Bleacher Report awarding an A+, to cite just two examples. But in the hours since the 2022 NFL Draft came to a close, team building has continued in earnest, with reports indicating that the Ravens have signed a total of 16 undrafted free agents, while offering minicamp invites to several others.

    OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens selected David Ojabo in the second round of the NFL draft Friday night, putting their faith in the Michigan edge rusher’s considerable potential even though he’s coming off a torn Achilles tendon. It may be a while before Ojabo can make an impact for Baltimore, but the Ravens could use help with their pass rush. Ojabo teamed up with No. 2 overall pick Aidan Hutchinson to lead Michigan to the Big Ten title last season. Ojabo had 11 sacks and five forced fumbles last season. That breakout year likely would have made him a first-round pick, but he tore his left Achilles tendon during his pro day workout. There are, of course, plenty of connections between Michigan and the Ravens. Baltimore coach John Harbaugh’s brother Jim is the coach at Michigan. Mike MacDonald, the Wolverines’ defensive coordinator last season, was hired this offseason to fill that same role in Baltimore. The Ravens had two first-round picks Thursday because they traded receiver Marquise Brown to Arizona. Baltimore took safety Kyle Hamilton at No....
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — After giving up an NFL-worst 4,742 passing yards, the Ravens shored up their secondary this offseason by signing safety Marcus Williams. Executive vice president and general manager Eric DeCosta doubled down with the team’s first-round pick on Thursday night, taking dynamic safety Kyle Hamilton out of Notre Dame. Following a series of trades that netted the Ravens the 25th overall pick, DeCosta added more protection for quarterback Lamar Jackson by selecting Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum.

    OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens selected Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton with the 14th pick in the draft Thursday night. After an injury-plagued season in which the Ravens went 8-9, Baltimore took advantage of a rare chance to pick in the first half of the first round. This was the Ravens’ highest selection since they took tackle Ronnie Stanley at No. 6 in 2016. It was only the fifth time in the past 22 years that Baltimore picked in the top 16. The Ravens went with a defensive back in the latest attempt this offseason to shore up their secondary. Baltimore also added safety Marcus Williams via free agency after its defense finished last in the NFL against the pass. It wasn’t a surprise that Baltimore went with a defensive player. The Ravens have made significant moves on that side of the ball, including a change at defensive coordinator from Don Martindale to Mike MacDonald. Injuries could be blamed for many of Baltimore’s problems in the secondary last year. Cornerback Marcus Peters went down with a knee...
    The Baltimore Ravens have signed coach John Harbaugh to a three-year contract extension through 2025. The Ravens announced the move Tuesday. Harbaugh is entering his 15th season at the helm. Baltimore went 8-9 in 2021 — only the second losing record of his tenure — when injures derailed what looked like a promising season. The Ravens are 148-96 under Harbaugh, plus a Super Bowl victory at the end of the 2012 season. He also guided Baltimore to the AFC title game in 2008 and 2011. In nine visits to the postseason, Harbaugh is 11-8. He was the AP’s NFL coach of the year in 2019. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens hired Kerry Dixon as an assistant quarterbacks coach. The Ravens announced the move Monday. Dixon joins coach John Harbaugh’s staff after 15 seasons as a college assistant, most recently as wide receivers coach at Georgia Tech from 2019-21. Prior to that, Dixon was at Toledo, where he served as the team’s running backs coach in 2018. From 2015-17, he was the wide receivers coach at Florida. Dixon has also coached running backs at Florida International, Florida Atlantic and Montana State. He was an offensive coordinator at Stillman, and he coached quarterbacks at Texas Southern in 2008 and Morgan State the previous year. Dixon played quarterback and wide receiver at Baylor and Hampton. ___ More AP NFL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    The Detroit Lions have signed free agent linebacker Chris Board. Detroit announced the move Wednesday, adding depth where it is needed on defense. Board started in two of 63 games over the last four years with the Baltimore Ravens. He had 59 tackles, 2 1/2 sacks, forced two fumbles and was a key contributor on special teams. The former North Dakota State earned a spot in the league in 2018 as undrafted free agent. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/hub/nfl and https://apnews.com/hub/pro-32 and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    Rob Carr/Getty Images NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders looks on from the set before the start of the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium on November 24, 2011. On Monday March 21, Jackson State University held its Pro Day, and 54-year-old head coach Deion Sanders was thrilled that representatives from more than twenty NFL teams turned out to watch his draft-eligible players. But he was less than enthused that ten of the league’s clubs—including the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns—failed to show up for the event. So on Tuesday he took to social media to publicly shame the Ravens and the other relevant teams for not making an appearance at Jackson State, which hosted a joint Pro Day that also included players from fellow HBCUs Alcorn State and Mississippi Valley State. In a tweet posted by sports reporter Jeff Lightsty Jr., Sanders went on a two-minute rant in which he first expressed his appreciation for those who attended. Then he unloaded on those who didn’t. Deion Sanders: “Where Are Thou?’“… There’s 32...
