Mandatory Minicamp – Notes From Day 2 (Fight!)


On the second day of Raven’s mandatory minicamp it looked like the weather wasn’t the only thing that was heating up the field.  Tempers flared as a couple of fights broke out, beginning with TE Crockett Gillmore and DT Timmy Jernigan. Afterwards, Jernigan had a few words for the press:

Round 2 kicked off with Steve Smith taking on Ladarius Webb in a war of shoving and (censored) words. The biggest surprise here is that Smith made it through day one without an altercation.

We also got to hear from Terrell Suggs in the presser, and he for one enjoys the heat that Smith brings on the practice field.

Suggs admitted that he put on a few pounds towards the end of the season and that hurt his production. He also touched base on how it was “agonizing” to miss the playoffs and sit through the offseason. Suggs also had high praise for Gary Kubiak and is glad he is on board.

The wide receiving core looked pretty rusty and committed a few drops, one of which was intercepted by Deji Olatoye. Not a good look for Marlon Brown, who is trying to stay relevant after he went from the second receiving option to maybe the fourth or fifth in one offseason.

Kapron Lewis-Moore didn’t practice today after suffering a left hamstring injury in yesterday’s practice. Lewis-Moore didn’t play last year after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the BCS championship game.

    The Ravens not only got intensity & veteran leadership but they also got the ultimate competitor in Smitty. This can only be a good thing for the Ravens. Looking forward to playing against you guys in October. Go Smitty & Go Panthers

      I agree, and I think that his presence has so far been a huge boost for the Ravens. Hopefully it will translate to the regular season!

    I agree, and I think that his presence has been a huge boost for a team that needed some leadership on the field. I lived in Charlotte for a few years so I know how much Panther’s fans love the guy.
