Mount Cody still resides in Baltimore…

I honestly thought big Terrence Cody would get an offer from another team as an unrestricted free agent. Maybe he did— but apparently for no more than the $630,000 the Ravens wound up re-signing him for on a 1-year “Prove It” deal. I was wrong about the Ravens giving up on him. They want to give him one more shot to prove he can be a starting nose tackle again in the league...

Power Rankings: Baltimore Ravens have had mediocre offseason so far in 2014

Since the 2013 NFL season ended 10 weeks ago, every team in the NFL has made changes. Both winners and losers from last year have been busy making adjustments. Some have revamped their coaching staff. Some have turned over their roster. Some have done a little bit of both. But none, not a single one, have stood pat. During this firestorm of activity, every team believes they’ve...

Baltimore Ravens 7-Round Mock Draft

Why the Ravens will miss Corey Graham more than they think

After the 2011 season, the Ravens made a seemingly innocuous signing.  Bolstering their special teams unit, they etched former Chicago Bear Pro Bowl gunner, Corey Graham, to a 2-year deal worth $4.2 million.  Though not a household name by any extent, any fan would struggle to find negative comments about the former New Hampshire University standout.  What had seemed to be a safe...

Baltimore Ravens | Best & Worst Case Scenario for Round 1 of the NFL Draft

The Ravens have been busy in free agency taking care of a handful of needs (Steve Smith, Owen Daniels, re-signing Monroe) making their pick at 17 a little easier. They are a team that could go in a handful of directions (OT, S, WR, LB) and also be a candidate to trade back to snap up a few more picks. But they could also be in a prime spot to have a guy like Lewan who would be the...

The Ravens’ Mt. Dreadmore: One man’s opinion, and then the right one

Back about a month ago, you couldn’t turn on ESPN without hearing a discussion about a hypothetical “Mt.

After losing Corey Graham, will one of the top 10 corners be in Baltimore?

First thing’s first.  There is a need at cornerback (though not necessarily glaring) after the Ravens let Corey Graham walk in free agency.  And although Graham was a nickel corner, in today’s NFL, many defenses essentially operate with three starting cornerbacks. We will be going in depth tomorrow as to what made Graham so effective and how the Ravens may look to replace his...

It’s tough to say what was the more jarring sight Friday at zMax Dragway: watching former Panthers receiver Steve Smith climb behind the wheel of a top fuel dragster to rev the engine, or seeing him sporting the colors of his new team, the Baltimore Ravens. “The confidence that I have in myself, I look good in any color,” Smith said. “I look good in purple.
