The Baltimore Ravens may have won the Super Bow in February but there has been a noticeable roster turnover since then. With the retirement of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed’s signing with Houston the Ravens defense does not have a clear leader.
One player who is establishing himself in a leadership role is free agent signing Elvis Dumervil.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is happy with what he has seen from linebacker.
“It seems like Elvis has made the transition,” Harbaugh said after OTAs on Wednesday, via Carroll County Times. “He has been here every day. He hasn’t missed one thing since he’s been here. I feel like he’s emerging as a leader for our football team. He has had no problem learning the defense.
He’s done a great job. He’s a smart player. He likes football. He’s done a good job at it, so he’s done a good job.”
Dumervil spent the first six years of his NFL career with the Denver Broncos but was cut due to salary cap concerns this offseason.
There will be endless comparisons between the new look Ravens defense and the ones which took the field before them but for the time being Dumervil seems to be fitting in just right.

Despite landing a record-setting deal for his client, Joe Linta still reflects back on a checkered past.
The longtime agent for Joe Flacco revealed to USA Today how contracts talks with the Ravens fell apart in 2012 over a difference of $1 million in non-guaranteed base salary.

Ray Lewis and Ed Reed have provided this writer with some of the greatest thrills an NFL fan can experience, none better than the 2013 Super Bowl Championship this past February. According to most NFL writers, losing them both, along with six other starters, can only mean the end of competitive NFL football in the city of Baltimore."Not so fast" as ESPN's Lee Corso...

I was impressed by how fast and physical John Harbaugh's first round of full-team OTA's turned out, in fact just approaching the borderline of full-contact tempo.

This is just too funny. Former NFL tough guy Tony Siragusa is staring in a commercial for Depends. Yes, Depends sports fans; adult protection (in case you leak down there).
They don't look like diapers; more like something you slip in--a shield or guard as they call it.
What makes this commercial even funnier than just the fact that a former 'tough guy&...
When Ray Lewis retired from the Baltimore Ravens, many people speculated that the two-time Super Bowl champion was a shell of his old self.
However Lewis is showcasing he still has it, while taking on a new mission to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
In one month Lewis will be traveling to Tanzania in an effort to raise money and awareness for clean water in East Africa.

Instead of signing quarterback Joe Flacco the Baltimore Ravens waited to see his results from the 2012 season. Flacco called the teams bluff and put up one of the best post season performances in NFL history while leading the Ravens to a Super Bowl victory.
Before the start of last season Flacco walked away from a five-year extension that would have averaged $16 million a year...
The Baltimore Ravens got exactly what they wanted from Joe Flacco when he led the team to a championship last season, but the situation could not have worked out worse for ownership regarding the franchise quarterback’s contract. Rather than signing Flacco to an extension in 2012, the Ravens waited until he won a Super Bowl [...]
Sure, Ray Lewis has played at Mile High Stadium. But that's nothing compared with his first big project in retirement.
After going out as a Super Bowl champion, the former Ravens linebacker intends to climb Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro.

Let’s just get the deer antler spray jokes out of the way early: If it’s good for playing football, it’s got to be good for climbing mountains.
Now, seriously: Ray Lewis has announced that he will be climbing a mountain soon — and not any old mountain. The former Ravens linebacker says he plans to hike the famed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The goal is to raise money and...

This off-season, after four years with New York, former Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty joined the Baltimore Ravens. Before playing a single game on the same team as Joe Flacco, Canty still believes he is a better quarterback than former teammate Eli Manning.
How did Canty come...
You can likely file this under the “he has to say that” category, but brand new Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Chris Canty said on Friday that Joe Flacco is a better quarterback than New York Giants signal caller and two-time Super Bowl champion, Eli Manning. “He won a Super Bowl and he’s one of the [...]
