Have the Ravens ever developed a productive receiver?

Have the Ravens ever developed a productive receiver?

By spending a first round selection on Breshad Perriman a few years ago, the plan was obviously to develop the somewhat raw prospect into a prolific receiver. But have the Ravens ever succeeded at doing such a thing before? Generally speaking, it’s very hard to win in the NFL if you can’t produce talent on your own. Rather than throw money at free agents, the best teams all draft and develop their own stars. If you look at offseason spending over the past few years, you’ll see that the teams shelling out the most money in free agency are typically cellar dwellers. Consequently, the...

Trey Wingo says Joe Flacco’s contract “gutted” the Ravens

Trey Wingo says Joe Flacco’s contract “gutted” the Ravens

Time to take a look at the real reason those players left. It's that time of year again. The weather is hot, baseball is approaching the All-Star break, training camp is just around the corner, and quarterbacks are about to get paid. Three NFL quarterbacks entered this period looking for a new contract extension from their teams, and Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was the first to get his earned payday as Oakland gave him a 5-year, $125 million extension with $40 million fully guaranteed, $70 million in total guarantees, and a $12.5 million signing bonus. With Carr's deal out of the...

Jefferson Steps up as a Leader

When the Ravens signed DT Brandon Williams 5-year deal worth $52.5M, with $27.5M guaranteed, I wasn’t a fan of the move. It’s not that I have anything against Williams. He’s a very good player who contributes mightily to the effectiveness … The post Jefferson Steps up as a Leader appeared first on Baltimore Ravens News | Russell Street Report.

How Joe Flacco’s contract set the QB market

How Joe Flacco’s contract set the QB market

When will the quarterback market come back down to Earth? Last week, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr signed a five-year contract extension worth $125 million, with $70 million fully guaranteed. The Carr contract resembles that of Andrew Luck, who signed an extension with the Colts in 2016 worth $140 million. Luck received $87 million guaranteed. All of these quarterbacks owe a huge thank you to Ravens quarterback, Joe Flacco. Before Flacco signed a massive six-year $120 million contract extension in 2013, Drew Brees was the quarterback who carried the NFLs largest contract at the position....

Ravens Nest: The Ravens are still looking for answers in free agency

Ravens Nest: The Ravens are still looking for answers in free agency

Baltimore Ravens news and links for 6/26/17 An interesting slate of Baltimore Ravens news... Ravens mailbag: Could they still sign Anquan Boldin? What O-linemen are available? - The Baltimore Sun Given the state of offensive line play in the league, it’s surprising that Mangold remains a free agent. However, it's probably telling as well. He acknowledged earlier in the offseason that he was still recovering from an ankle injury. His asking price is said to be extremely high with the 33-year-old reportedly wanting to be paid like a top-10 center. That would mean a deal worth around $6...

Un-retired linebacker Zach Orr not a fit with the Seahawks

Un-retired linebacker Zach Orr not a fit with the Seahawks

Linebacker Zach Orr retired in January due to a congenital neck and spine condition that understandably scared the hell out of him. In his lone season as a starter with the Baltimore Ravens in 2016, Orr recorded 130 tackles, three interceptions, five passes defensed, and was named as a second-team All-Pro by the AP, so it was a considerable loss for the Ravens and the league. Therefore the NFL is getting a significant talent boost this week, as Orr has announced that he intends to return after getting a new, better prognosis about his health and safety. Orr is an unrestricted free agent....
