The Purple Chaos:
Looking to add depth along the defensive line this offseason, the Baltimore Ravens’ search netted them Ryan McBean, a multitalented 6-foot-5, 305-pounder. McBean inked a one-year, $1.21 million deal earlier this month. But it will be nearly a month into the regular season until he can make his debut with the Ravens. McBean, 28, has [...]

Williams, 27, began the offseason as a restricted free agent, but inked his one-year tender earlier in May. According to Vensel, the Ravens have expressed their [...]
It’ll be a three-horse race to see who will back-up Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice this season. At some point, Rice will return to running with the Ravens’ first-team offense. But until he does, rookie Bernard Pierce and second-year backs Anthony Allen and Damian Berry have an opportunity to make their case as to [...]
On the NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2012, Baltimore Ravens fullback Vonta Leach was voted on by his peers as the league’s 45th best player. As a member of the Houston Texans in 2010, Leach helped pave the way for Arian Foster, who rushed for a league-high 1,616 yards. Leach was ranked on last [...]
The 2012 offseason for the Baltimore Ravens has already proven to be a near disaster for the Baltimore Ravens defense. NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Terrell Suggs has already suffered a partial tear of his Achilles tendon while questions surrounding his return swirl. On Friday, the Ravens lost DL Michael McAdoo after he ruptured his Achilles tendon during participation in a Raven’s...
Vonta Leach was Baltimore's most valuable acquisition of last season - yes that’s right, the fullback.
The Ravens had a lot of success in 2011, but like most other teams, had down moments as well. If you need your memory refreshed, the loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars should be all I have to mention.
One of the Ravens' consistently great players was Vonta Leach, and he...
Vonta Leach is a thoughtful, sensitive and intelligent man in the prime of his life. He is also the best damn blocking fullback in the NFL.Vonta Leach's peers voted him the overall 45th best player in the 2012 NFLN's "Top 100" poll...It will be interesting to see if any blocking fullback besides Leach shows up in the rest of the NFLN's remaining "Top 100...
1. Ray Lewis (1996-present)
This was by far the easiest selection of the list. Lewis was drafted by the Ravens in the first ever Ravens draft of 1996, and is the last remaining player from the Ravens inaugural team. Surprisingly, Lewis was the fifth linebacker selected in the draft at pick number 26. Lewis is a 13-time Pro Bowler, 10-time All-Pro, two-time NFL Defensive Player...
According to Don Banks of SI.com, the Baltimore Ravens are holding out hope that linebacker Terrell Suggs will be healthy enough to come back late in the season and at least serve as a pass rushing specialist.
The Ravens could end up using the new injured reserve rule, by placing Suggs on IR and having him return late in the season. Each NFL team will have the opportunity...
Ravens outside linebacker Michael McAdoo tore his Achilles tendon during an organized team activity practice Thursday and underwent surgery today to repair the damage. Given the timing and severity of the injury, McAdoo is expected to miss the entire NFL season. McAdoo is a 6-foot-7, 245-pound pass rusher from the University of North Carolina. He declared for the NFL supplemental...
One of the guys I thought had a chance to be successful and replace Terrell Suggs, who is out with a torn Achilles tendon, appears to be done for the year.
Michael McAdoo, an outside linebacker from the University of North Carolina, has torn his Achilles tendon, according to this tweet from Aaron Wilson.
This cuts into the Ravens’ depth some more and they’ll have to use draft...
It will be nearly a month into the regular season before defensive lineman Ryan McBean can make his official debut with the Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said he only has a "partial" tear of his Achilles' tendon, a detail which he said will help him get back on the field by November at the latest. That is probably overly optimistic. Players often say they will be back earlier than doctors allow. The Ravens seem to have a more realistic vision. "The Ravens for now are holding...
