Welcome to the Daily Caw, where we round up all the latest Baltimore Ravens news and notes from around the web.

The Ravens veteran players report to training camp today, and things really kick off tomorrow.  Like most teams, camp brings a lot of questions to the table that have to be answered on the field.

5 questions facing the Ravens at the start of training campAaron Wilson, The Baltimore Sun

"New Ravens offensive coordinator Marc Trestman, the former Chicago Bears head coach, frequently uses double tight end sets.He’s also a big believer in establishing the running game. The Ravens are maintaining the same zone blocking system and running plays they employed with success last year under former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak and quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison."

Ravens might have a few surprisesTony Lombardi, Russell Street Report

"Players like Randy Hymes, Justin Harper, Demetrius Williams, Ronnie Prude and John Simon seemed like sure-fire keepers during fake games. Yet the coaches sift through the mirage that is training camp and the preseason with trained vision to project these players into roles on the team.That said, each camp produces a few surprises and here are some possibilities."

"The Ravens plan to gradually increase Wagner’s workload and monitor how his foot responds before allowing him to take part in team drills and contact work. Wagner hasn’t felt pain in his surgically-repaired foot.Wagner was one of the highest-graded right tackles in the league in his first season as a starter last year."

Former Redskins quarterback Doug Williams son, D.J. Williams, tries out for Ravens along with two other QB’sAaron Wilson, The Baltimore Sun

"The younger Williams, who’s 6-foot-4, 195 pounds, isn’t being signed to a contract, though, following his workout Tuesday for the Ravens.The Ravens also worked out former Army quarterback Trent Steelman, who tried out for the team two years ago after going undrafted, and former West Georgia quarterback Austin Trainor, according to sources."
