In anticipation of the 4-month-old lockout ending, some Ravens have begun to make their way back to Baltimore.
Backup defensive lineman Arthur Jones posted on Twitter: "On the road again. Bmore on my way back."
Reserve running back Jalen Parmele also wrote on Twitter: "Headed to MD.... Gonna miss my boys like crazy... Got used to bein a stay at home dad."
There's plenty of optimism that the lockout will end as soon as today. According to reports on ESPN, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has "at least" the 24 votes he needs from the owners to approve the deal and sources with the players "sound upbeat."
"Hope the lockout ends today," Ravens rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith posted on Twitter. "I'm getting tired of reading about it and watching it on tv."
