"During 11-on-11 drills, Perriman leapt over a defender to corral a long touchdown from quarterback Joe Flacco. Perriman made the tough catch in the midst of heavy traffic, showing he has the ability to go up and get the football.Fellow rookie receiver Darren Waller had bright spots of his own. He caught a pair of deep passes down the sideline, and also showed great speed gaining separation from defenders after the catch."

"“I’ve always been pretty active coaching on the field in a positive way,” Trestman said Monday. “I’m outwardly emotional at the right time. Just kind of let it happen the way it does during practice and in games but more in practice, where you have the chance to move around a little bit more and be a little bit more verbal with the players because there is time to do that.”"
Former Pro Bowler Matt Schaub not changing mindset as a backup – Garrett Downing, BaltimoreRavens.com
"Schaub is fully aware he might spend all of 2015 watching from the sidelines, but that reality hasn’t altered his mindset going into his 12th NFL season.“I approach it much the same as if I was ‘the guy.’ You have to,” Schaub said after a recent practice during Organized Team Activities. “The moment you drop that guard and you lose that, then you’re almost not ready. You almost have to put yourself in that role every day, because you never know when that chance might come.”"
“No doubt” secondary will be better – Ryan Mink, BaltimoreRavens.com
"Last offseason, the Ravens’ primary focus was offensive line improvement. It returned the following season to be one of the league’s most dominant units.If Baltimore’s secondary can have the same rebound, watch out.“I don’t think there’s going to be any doubt that we’re going to be so much better than we were last year,” Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees said after Monday’s Organized Team Activities (OTAs) practice."

Not even close,” Pees responded. “I expect big things out of Matt. I really do.”"
