NFL Injury Report:
The Baltimore Ravens will face several difficult salary cap
decisions this offseason, and it could result in the parting of ways with wide
receivers Anquan Boldin and Jacoby Jones and linebacker Paul Kruger, according
to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Entering the offseason, the Ravens project to be $5 million
over the salary cap. That would be before resolving the pending Joe Flacco
issue. If they fail to reach a long-term agreement with their quarterback and opt
to exercise the franchise tag, they would move up to $20 million over the cap.
This could result in the Ravens strongly considering
releasing veteran players, including Boldin and Jones. Cutting Boldin and Jones
would free up roughly $5.5 and $3.5 million in cap space.
The Ravens could also have a hard time re-signing free
agent-to-be Paul Kruger considering their upcoming cap crunch. Even if they
reach a long-term agreement with Flacco, it appears there will be some
difficult decisions coming in Baltimore this offseason.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will retire in style with these gold-colored cleats that he’ll wear against the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl. Under Armour’s FW13 cleats tell much of Lewis’ story. Lewis' kicks have “Psalms 91” on the toe — just like the T-shirt he wore under his pads during his final home game on Jan. 6.
The Baltimore Ravens may be playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but there has been repeated talks of their offseason plans. Between signing Joe Flacco, and/or letting Ed Reed walk, the Ravens apparently have other plans; this time at the wide receiver position. On NFL Live today, Adam Schefter said that the team may "very well" choose to release Anquan Boldin.
Unhappy with the hard artificial turf at Tulane University's baseball field, the Baltimore Ravens will hold their main practice Thursday at the Saints' facility instead.

After the dust had settled on the Baltimore Ravens shattering end to the 2011 season, there was plenty of reason to be confident that they could go one better in 2012. If not for a few unlucky breaks and poor execution, they would have been facing the Giants in Indianapolis so it was not farfetched to think the team was not far off a championship appearance. Instead of going out...
So, I have a serious internal debate going on right now. The Ravens minus 4 is straight up stealing. Like, there is absolutely no way I see SF winning this game. If they do, it's gonna be on a last second field goal where they don't cover. To be honest, I see something like 28-17 Ravens (yes, I am also thinking about the under of 47.5, but not completely confident on that...
Baltimore Ravens 15-year veteran center Matt Birk is making his Super Bowl debut. At 36, he is one of the oldest Super Bowl rookies, and he came to the NFL in the same Minnesota Vikings draft class as current San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss. I think is interesting to make a list of the Top 10 senior players who made their first (and for many only) Super Bowl appearance...
If you see Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed walking around donning a hoodie with cut off sleeves, it's OK to call him a Bill Belichick poser."He's the first guy I saw like, 'That's cool.'
