Another busy day is upon Ravens fans, as training camp continues and lots of newsworthy items hit the presses.

The Baltimore Ravens are still a not-too-fashionable Super Bowl pick in 2015, but it appears that at least one big name believes in their chances – Sports Illustrated’s Peter King.  King dropped by training camp and got a feel for the rebuilt Ravens, who he feels are built to go the distance.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco got a little love as well, landing at #10 in ESPN’s Ron Jaworski’s NFL QB rankings.  It’s a heck of an honor when you consider that Flacco finished above Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, Cam Newton, and Eli Manning.

Ratings for the latest Madden NFL are slowly leaking out, and so far three Ravens rank in the top five at their respective positions – Marshal Yanda, Daryl Smith, and Terrell Suggs.  Yanda ranked out as the top offensive lineman in the entire NFL, as a matter of fact.

Meanwhile, over at Drew’s Morning Dish, three Ravens get called out as guys who are already on the hot seat.  None of the three are a surprise at all, but I am starting to feel like Jah Reid has nine lives or something.  Or maybe he’s like the Ravens’ one true love who they just can’t quit.

Hope you enjoy today’s link roundup!
