A former college defensive back at Miami (Ohio), Ravens coach John Harbaugh did his best to give the offense a decent look during Monday's practice when he lined up at cornerback.
Harbaugh, who stays in good shape with post-practice runs on the practice field, didn't get rave reviews from himself or discerning general manager Ozzie Newsome.
"It fatigued me, my legs were burning," Harbaugh said with a laugh. "I felt embarrassed. They made me feel bad about myself. No, it was really fun. I wasn't really trying to cover them, I just hope you guys understand that. That's why I wasn't close to them. I was just giving them a look."
What kind of scouting grade did Harbaugh get from Newsome?
"Well, Ozzie already gave me a grade," Harbaugh said. "He gave me a 5.0, which is a move-on-to-your-next-phase-of-life grade That's what it is."
