A situational pass rusher whose role increased as the 2014 season progressed, second-year defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan is aiming in training camp to battle the notion that he’s only able to get after the quarterback as he ascends to a starting role in 2015.
Jernigan is set to replace Haloti Ngata, whose space-eating role defending against the run had been integral to the Ravens defense since 2006....Read more

Even if he didn’t earn Pro Bowl honors with his superlative 2014 campaign, Ravens guard Kelechi Osemele hasn’t let that goal out of his sights.
He’s huddled in recent weeks with veterans to talk about how to become part of the offensive line elite, whose reputation for top-level performance precedes their level of play and earns them annual invitations to the NFL all-star game.
