Trevor Pryce, one of the stars of the Ravens’ defensive line before injuries slowed him down in 2007, is in camp and looking better than ever.
The defensive end looked trim and didn’t seem to be carrying extra weight on his 6-foot-5, 286-pound frame. After practicing with mostly rookies in the morning at McDaniel College in Westminster, Pryce ran sprints on an empty football field, finishing the last one by backpedaling the entire way.
The Ravens gotta have this guy this season. Not only is he among the team’s veteran leadership, but any subdued performance on the part of Terrell Suggs missing camp is going to fall squarely on his shoulders. He recorded 13 sacks two years ago, but missed 11 games in 2007 with a fractured wrist and torn pectoral muscle.
This might be one of a remaining few years of productivity for Pryce, and from the looks of things, he’s going to maximize it.
