After a short stint of OTAs and mandatory minicamp, here’s a look at a few winners and losers of the early offseason for the Baltimore Ravens.
The Baltimore Ravens finished up their third and final mandatory minicamp practice today and the team breaks before training camp begins in July. We’ve seen 11 practices in total from the Purple and Black. It would’ve been 13 but the team forfeited their final two days of OTAs due to an infraction of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement.
There was no contact allowed during these practices, which made it tough to gauge how players were truly performing and shaping out. But nevertheless, it still gave players the opportunity to conduct 7v7 and 11v11 drills, providing at least some competition in the early offseason practices. Full pads and contact won’t fully take place until training camp begins.
For now, it’s watching players in short.
With an extended break before the team gets back together, now is a good time to recap the practices that took place, highlighting some winners and losers of the bunch. It’s worth noting that I haven’t attended any of the offseason practices. I’m simply going off what’s been said during press conferences and what’s been reported by the local media.
This obviously doesn’t have a final barring on the 53-man roster but players are beginning to make their early impressions on coaches, media, and fans for the upcoming season.
