Preston: Ravens minicamp full of intrigue for team experiencing growing pains

The Ravens are a team going through growing pains, which makes this week’s three-day mandatory minicamp possibly more important than recent ones.

The Ravens finished the 2018 season with the No. 1 ranked defense in the NFL, but coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale is only in his second season in charge and the Ravens lost important free agents such as linebackers Terrell Suggs, Za’Darius Smith and C.J. Mosley during the offseason and released safety Eric Weddle.

An offense is being installed by new offensive coordinator Greg Roman and passing game coordinator David Culley. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is also in his crucial second year of development.
