The Lombardi Trophy will make its first public appearance in Maryland since the Super Bowl parade when some Ravens players visit the Maryland State House Thursday. 

Lawmakers will honor the Super Bowl Champions with a resolution presented to team president Dick Cass.  A Ravens official said one or two players will also visit, though he would not identify which players will come.

House Speaker Michael E. Busch joked that the team wanted to thank the legislators for their crucial support, which pulled the Ravens to victory.

During the playoffs, the House of Delegates each Friday were awash in purple and led in chants of "Who let the Dogs out?" by the self-proclaimed "Ravens Caucus." 

Only legislators will be allowed to come meet the players, Busch said, adding: "I had to tell my family they couldn't come."

Last week, wide receiver Torrey Smith dropped by the House of Delegates. During the off-season, Smith has been interning in Congress with U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings.
