As the NFL draft approaches, the Ravens have scheduled visits with a number of top running backs. That list includes Wisconsin star Melvin Gordon and Indiana standout Tevin Coleman.
Although the Ravens aren't bringing Minnesota running back David Cobb in to their training complex for a visit, sources indicated they've displayed consistent interest in him and have a high opinion of the All-Big Ten Conference second-team selection.
The Ravens talked with Cobb at the Senior Bowl and the NFL scouting combine.
Cobb has drawn third-round grades from NFL draft analysts. If the Ravens don't draft a running back to work in tandem with veteran Justin Forsett in the first or second round, Cobb could be a strong option in the third round, if he's available.
Cobb is coming off a quadriceps injury that he suffered at the combine while running a 4.81 in the 40-yard dash.
Cobb was still recovering from the injury and didn't work out at the Golden Gophers' pro day. At the combine, he bench pressed 225...Read more
The end last week of the NFL's annual meetings signified the start of the countdown for the draft, which is now a little more than four weeks away. The first day of the three-day event will be held on April 30 in Chicago.
“It really ramps up now ... until we get to the draft,” Ravens team president Dick Cass said last week. “It’s all hands on deck. Everyone on the coaching staff, everyone in the scouting department will start working on the draft full time. The scouting department has already been doing that, looking at a lot of tape. Now, they really go in and start filling out the reports.
"We have a week of meetings in April which is, I think, the best week of preparation for the draft. The coaches and the scouts are in the draft room together, debating about particular players. It’s just a very good discussion.”
That’s not to say the Ravens are done with free agency. Head coach John Harbaugh said last week the organization is still very much engaged in the open market and said the...Read more
The Baltimore Warhawks, a semipro football team of police officers and firefighters, honored Ravens senior advisor of player development O.J. Brigance on Saturday.
A former Ravens linebacker who won a Super Bowl with the team during the 2000 NFL season, Brigance was diagnosed in 2007 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS is a progressive motor neuron disease also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
Brigance's No. 57 jersey was retired in honor of the Warhawks' partnership with his charitable foundation, the Brigance Brigade foundation. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Brigance's foundation. The Warhawks play in the National Public Safety League and opened their season Saturday against the Philadelphia Blue Flame.
"I am very excited about the partnership between the Brigance Brigade Foundation and the Baltimore Warhawks," Brigance told The Baltimore Sun. "These are Baltimore’s finest first responders, and to have my number retired by the team is a great honor for me and the...Read more
When veteran cornerback Lardarius Webb recently restructured his contract, he did so with the intention of finishing his career with the Ravens.
Webb lowered his salary cap figure from $12 million for this year to $9.25 million, creating a net savings of $2.75 million.
"My goal is to retire a Raven, and while it wasn’t an easy decision, I wanted to put the team first," Webb told The Baltimore Sun. "I wanted to prove myself this year that the Ravens sticking with me was the right decision. The Ravens reached out to my agent, Marc Lillibridge, a few weeks before the scouting combine and they were talking and working hard together to get something done. I'm glad it's done."
Webb, 29, has a fully guaranteed $2.25 million base salary for 2015 and a $3 million roster bonus due in early April along with $750,000 in playtime incentives and team qualifiers. Webb previously was scheduled to make an $8 million base salary for 2015. He can now make $6 million this year.
Webb can make up to $6...Read more
