Coach John Harbaugh was ''very pleased'' with Baltimore's minicamp and the Super Bowl champion won't unite as a team again until late July.
The Ravens finished their three-day mandatory offseason session on Thursday. Afterward, Harbaugh said, ''I was very pleased with the effort, very pleased with what we accomplished. I think we're in a good place as a football team.''
Baltimore lost nine significant contributors from last season's team, most notably Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Anquan Boldin and Matt Birk. They've been replaced by a host of newcomers - including Elvis Dumervil, Chris Canty, Marcus Spears and Michael Huff.
For that reason, it seems as if the Ravens are starting over.
Tackle Bryant McKinnie says, ''The chemistry kind of has to grow with all the new people and everything.''

Maybe this move says more about where the Ravens are going to go in the future on offense than it says about where they've been..
But where they've been has been pretty solid thanks to veteran fullback Vonta Leach.

But... more telling is the offensive theory...
The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed TE Billy Bajema. The career blocking specialist will resume his role from a year ago as the third tight end behind Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson. He has never been thought of as a catching threat but is good at his job of extending the offensive line.
A week ago, the Houston Texans had brought Bajema in for a workout but the Ravens were quick to...
