OWINGS MILLS - What originally was scheduled to be a normal day of practice turned into a relaxing and entertaining Saturday for Ravens players.
As a reward to the players for the work they put in during training camp, the team had comedian Tracy Morgan visit team headquarters and perform for the players after the players had finished their morning meetings. After the performance, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh told the players that he was giving them the day off.
"We usually try to have something interesting and entertaining at the end of training camp, and we had Tracy here today," Harbaugh said. "He entertained the room and had a good message for the players after his performance."
Mark Curry from the TV show "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" is another notable comedian the Ravens have brought in to perform for the players in recent years near the end of training camp.
Morgan spent several years on the cast of "Saturday Night Live" and has starred in several movies. He's also well-known for his role in the award-winning sitcom "30 Rock."
Morgan is in Baltimore this weekend performing at Magooby's Joke House.
