The man with his eyes on the quarterback

When you think of a list of the greatest Baltimore Ravens ever – which players come to mind? Probably Ray Lewis, possibly Jon Ogden (although a bit less likely given his position), any Joe Flacco shout outs there? Well regardless of who makes your list, a name that SHOULD make your list is Ed Reed. It doesn’t matter what Ed Reed has done since playing his final game for the Ravens...

Baltimore Ravens worst ever draft pick at safety eventually faded away

Going into the 2006 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens had a young Ed Reed at strong safety, and had some trust in Will Demps at free safety. They pulled the trigger in the draft on defensive back David Pittman in the 3rd round though, as a best-player-available pick and project. For the Ravens, though, this just didn’t work out as planned. Pittman played cornerback in college, and...

Baltimore Ravens: Drafting a safety could be key

The Baltimore Ravens’ secondary has been a point of interest during this offseason. One of the team’s biggest problems on defense in 2013 was the secondary. Last season, the Ravens relied on second-year Raven James Ihedigbo and rookie Matt Elam at the safety position. Ihedigbo signed a two-year contract with the Detroit Lions last month, so the Ravens were left with Elam as their...

WATCH: Brandon Williams bench 525 pounds

Well, this is pretty impressive. Looks like Brandon Williams can add one more notch to his viral belt, right alongside the 6-foot-1-300-plus-pound-man walking-on-his-hands, one.  But hey, everyone has that notch these days. On April 7, Williams put some separation between himself and all the other 6-foot-1, 300-plus-pound men who can walk on their hands when he posted a video to...

Who will the Ravens line up across from Matt Elam?

Throughout this offseason, the Ravens have done a tremendous job at filling the holes that they carried out of the 2014 season.  Wide receiver, tight end, offensive line — all of these positions have been addressed with starters, and those positions should see drastic improvement.  However, there is still one position where the Ravens have seemingly left the hole in place. ...

John Harbaugh describes Super Bowl postgame handshake with brother Jim

Two's a charm: McClain retires again: 'I'm done'

The bizarro world that (former) Baltimore Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain has gotten even weirder.
