Linebacker Paul Kruger, a third-year player out of Utah, was a second-round pick in Baltimore's 2009 draft. For much of his first two seasons, he didn't do much. Part of the problem was he moved from linebacker and defensive end in 2010. In 2011, he's back to being a linebacker.
Kruger, with the exception of a game-icing interception in 2009 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, had a non-descript first two seasons in the NFL. That is until this past Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
The 25-year-old linebacker had a career day against the Cardinals. He ended the day with two sacks, including one in the fourth quarter that helped the Ravens get the ball back for the game-winning field goal.
Kruger continues to get playing time in passing situations and is constantly making plays. He's a good piece to the pass rushing puzzle. If he continues his development, the Ravens may have a good player and one that can put pressure on Ben Roethlisberger Sunday nig...

The Ravens have placed 27-year old LB Prescott Burgess on the Injured Reserve List, ending his season due to an abdomen injury. Burgess played in 3 games for the Ravens this year and he had 3 tackles. He has now played in 40 games in his first four years with the Ravens and he has 38 tackles. This will hurt the special teams way more than the defense for the Ravens.
"Oakland this is going well!"
Remember Wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh formerly of Cincinatti Bengals fame? Well apparently the Oakland Raiders are trying to workout Housh Tuesday according to NFL.com. Is it just me or are the Raiders turning into the Bengals of old? May not be a bad thing considering before Carson Palmers’ leg exploded in the playoffs years back...
Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker, Terrell Suggs made sure the Arizona Cardinals regret not drafting him when they had the chance to do so in 2003. In Sunday’s 30-27 victory over the Cardinals, Suggs recorded a career high 13 tackles (four for losses), including a sack and two quarterback hits. “It’s always special to do it [...]
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs expects the rival Pittsburgh Steelers to be steamed when the two AFC North rivals meet on Sunday.
After all, the Ravens routed the Steelers 35-7 in the season opener - and that result didn't sit too well in Pittsburgh.
"We're bringing 53 men into the apocalypse and we ain't bringing flowers," Suggs told the Carroll...
The last time T.J. Houshmandzadeh was thrown an NFL pass it was a dropped ball that ultimately led to the Baltimore Ravens loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers in last year’s playoffs. It also led to the Ravens cutting him during the off season and no other team wanting to take a chance on the aging 34-year-old wide out. That is until this Tuesday, when Houshmandzadeh signed with...
The Baltimore Ravens season looked to be heading south. After losing to a lesser opponent on Monday night, they came home hoping to rebound and right the ship. The Arizona Cardinals had won one game all season, they have a struggling quarterback, and a defense that gives up a lot of yardage. But in the first half the Ravens looked like the team in transition as the Cardinals...

NFL rules now require centers or guards to wear microphones on their pads, but Birk indicated that the listening...
The Ravens’ come-from-behind victory against the Cardinals was a league-record fifth this season of 20 or more points.
Prolific deep threat doesn't sound awed by presence of Ravens' Reed
Unless you are Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb, it’s difficult to argue that Mike Wallace hasn’t blossomed into one of the most lethal vertical threats in the NFL.

The Raiders signed T.J. Houshmandzadeh to veteran minimum contract on Tuesday. Houshmandzadeh is familiar with Hue Jackson and Carson Palmer from their days together in Cincinnati. Palmer also worked out with Houshmandzadeh during his “retirement.” Aside from Houshmandzadeh’s familiarity with Jackson and Palmer, what does he bring to the table as a receiver? Houshmandzadeh...
