Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Baltimore Ravens news and notes from around the web. The rookies have reported to training camp, but one in particular has already been placed on the PUP list. We also take a look at Carl Davis’ diary, Lorenzo Taliaferro’s efforts to shed his label, and wonder when a Justin Tucker deal will get done.
Ravens place rookie wide receiver Cam Worthy on PUP list – Aaron Wilson, The Baltimore Sun
"Worthy learned he had a stress fracture in his foot this spring after initially fracturing his foot in the Medal of Honor Bowl All-Star game.Signed to a three-year, $1.577 million contract that includes a $2,500 signing bonus, Worthy was unable to work out for NFL teams this spring or at the NFL scouting combine.The 6-foot-2, 211-pound receiver from East Carolina has run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds in the past"
Ravens defensive tackle Carl Davis’ rookie diary – Aaron Wilson, The Baltimore Sun
"“I’ve just been working out and studying my playbook all summer, trying to get everything to be second nature to me and stay in shape. I’ve been in Detroit. I come from a rough area on the west side of Detroit. I’ve been fortunate even though I had to do a lot of moving around. I’ve seen some of my old schools and it’s reminding me of how I got here. My elementary school is boarded up and a lot of public schools are shut down in Detroit. I come from this area. Now that I’ve made it to the NFL, I haven’t really accomplished anything at all to my way of thinking, but I do remind myself of how far I’ve come.”"
Ravens’ Lorenzo Taliaferro working to become complete back – Callie Caplan, Press Box Online
"During Ravens training camp last year, rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro doubted his standing on the team. After a rough start to practices, preceded by an offseason arrest soon after the Ravens drafted him during the fourth round, coaches and observers were skeptical about the Coastal Carolina product.Taliaferro, however, settled into his role in Baltimore after his first preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers, during which he said every carry felt, “like an explosive run.” Then, in Week Three, he ripped off 91 rushing yards on 18 carries against the Cleveland Browns during his first regular-season action."
Timing should be only uncertainty for Justin Tucker’s new contract – Jamison Hensley, ESPN
"There should only be one question remaining in terms of a new deal between theBaltimore Ravens and kicker Justin Tucker:When is it going to be done?Even though negotiations are rarely simple, the New England Patriots andStephen Gostkowski did a lot of the legwork for the Ravens and Tucker last week. The Patriots made Gostkowski the NFL’s highest-paid kicker, signing him to a four-year, $17.2 million deal. The key figures are $10.1 million guaranteed and an average of $4.3 million per year, both of which are the new benchmarks for kickers."
