A winning football team is finally coming to Towson University. It’s the Ravens -- well, 20 or so of the team's players -- who will be holding unofficial workouts on Towson’s campus later this month. Veteran receiver Derrick Mason organized the workouts so Ravens players in the area can stay sharp during the NFL lockout.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, as many as 25 players will join Mason for “offseason workouts, training and conditioning” at Towson on May 24-26. The workouts aren’t open to the public.
Since players aren’t allowed inside team facilities during the lockout, groups of players from several NFL teams have conducted similar workouts, including the Jets, the Cowboys and the Redskins.
Earlier in the offseason, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco reportedly met up in Arizona with teammates such as Mason, Anquan Boldin, Todd Heap and Dennis Pitta for throwing sessions.
Maybe Towson coach Rob Ambrose can convince a few players to suit up for the Tigers this fall if this whole lockout thing sticks.
