Ebony Bird Podcast Episode 34: OTA’s continue and Jamal Lewis may have CTE


Welcome to the 34’th episode of Ebony Bird, a Baltimore Ravens podcast brought to you by Ebony Bird and FanSided.

On this episode, site experts Chris Schisler and Joe Schiller join contributor Jake McDonnell to talk all things Baltimore Ravens as the second week of organized team activities wraps up.

Following Thursday’s practice, John Harbaugh addressed the media again. He revealed to reporters that Anthony Levine Sr. underwent a foot surgery during the offseason but will be ready for training camp. The Ebony Bird gang break down what this injury means to the Ravens’ secondary, and ponder who between Willie Snead and John Brown will have more production this season.

On Tuesday, Bleacher Report released a story about Jamal Lewis and his potential battle with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). Lewis has a job and is living a productive life, but is already showing some early signs of the disease. With this in mind, Jake, Chris, and Joe talk about Lewis’s legacy and whether or not this news should come as a surprise.
