Player News - Ravens

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley singled out Breshad Perriman as having the "most impressive offseason" of Baltimore's receivers.

It's not saying a whole lot, as veteran Mike Wallace doesn't need to go full-bore in shorts and t-shirts, while Jeremy Maclin just signed last month. But it's notable nonetheless that Perriman is showing more consistency in Year 3. The Ravens are expected to use more three-wide sets in 2017 now that they have more talent at receiver and following the career-threatening injury of Dennis Pitta. Perriman's fantasy star dimmed significantly following the Maclin addition.

Joe Flacco said Danny Woodhead is the best receiving back the Ravens have had since Ray Rice.

"Really, ever since we lost Ray Rice, we haven't had a type of back that’s quite like how Ray was and quite like how Danny is in the passing game," Flacco said. "They just have a very good feel for when they're open and how to get open, how to sit in holes, how to find my eyes, and you can already see that." Woodhead should have a big role in the passing game after the Ravens lost both Dennis Pitta and Kyle Juszczyk this offseason, and these comments suggest Flacco will be happy to target him early and often. Also a threat in the red zone, Woodhead is being undervalued in both PPR and standard formats.

Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (shoulder, hamstring) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Gillmore missed OTAs recovering from twin shoulder surgeries. He's part of a wide open competition for snaps with Dennis Pitta gone and Darren Waller suspended. Gillmore had some 2015 success, but needs to prove his health after being limited to seven games last season.

Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com expects the Ravens to employ a "three-headed monster" at running back this year.

Mink considers Terrance West the favorite for early-down work with Danny Woodhead serving as the go-to back on passing downs. He also expects a "bigger role" for Kenneth Dixon, though obviously that won't happen until he returns from his four-game suspension. Baltimore has led the league in passing attempts each of the last two seasons and should come out throwing again in 2017. Of Baltimore's three backs, Woodhead's volume is the safest.

Ravens NT Brandon Williams wants to improve his sack total.

Williams landed a five-year, $54-million contract in March, but the deal had almost nothing to do with his ability as a pass rusher. The tackle has just 4.5 sacks through four years and has never recorded more than two in a season. "I need to get my sacks up," Williams said. "I'm more just trying to work on my pass rush, trying to get out there and do the best I can." While his calling card will always be his work against the run, getting more pressure in the passing game will not hurt.

Ravens TE Maxx Williams (knee) is a candidate to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Williams is eight months removed from a rare knee surgery. There's been no setbacks to his recovery, but he doesn't have a timetable. Coach John Harbaugh was noncommittal on Williams' training camp status earlier this month. Williams would miss at least the first six weeks if he lands on PUP.

NFL suspended Ravens TE Darren Waller at least one year for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

It's his second substance abuse suspension in as many years. A converted wide receiver, Waller logged 10 catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns over 238 snaps last year. Waller was also suspended for a drug violation during his time at Georgia Tech. If the 24-year-old plans on continuing his career, he'll eventually have to file for reinstatement.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec did not see Alex Lewis take a snap at right tackle during the offseason program.

The Ravens reportedly believe Lewis' best position is left guard, and it looks like they are keeping him there despite serious questions at right tackle. That could suggest Baltimore plans to bring someone in before training camp, but James Hurst looks like the favorite for now. In addition to right tackle, the Ravens have a big hole at center.
Jun 22 - 9:57 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec believes the Ravens will use more three-wide sets this season.

According to Zrebiec, Baltimore used three receivers on 58 percent of their plays last year. With Dennis Pitta no longer around and Jeremy Maclin in the fold, that number is likely to rise this season, which is good news for likely No. 3 Breshad Perriman. Still, Perriman's breakout potential took a big hit when Maclin signed, and he is no better than a late-round flier.

Ravens OT James Hurst worked at right tackle during offseason workouts.

A 2014 UDFA, Hurst was one of PFF's lowest rated tackles over three starts last year. He's the in-house favorite to replace Rick Wagner, but Baltimore could add a veteran before training camp. Ryan Clady, Orlando Franklin, and Austin Pasztor are the top free agents available.

Appearing on Adam Schefter's Know Them From Adam podcast, Jeremy Maclin revealed he played through a torn groin in 2016.

Until now, the nature of Maclin's groin issue wasn't known. Maclin injured his groin two snaps into Week 9, missed the next four games, and was held under 30 yards in 3-of-5 games to end the year. Since his release from the Chiefs, some have said Maclin "lost a step," understandable considering he was playing with a groin tear. Maclin didn't need surgery and said he is now 100 percent.

Ravens DC Dean Pees said the team views first-rounder Marlon Humphrey as a boundary corner.

"They all can play in the slot," Pees said. "That being said, we really like him as an outside guy." The designation is important with slot-corner Tavon Young set to miss the entire season with a torn ACL. With Humphrey out of the running, sixth-round sophomore Maurice Canady and veteran Brandon Boykin will likely compete with Lardarius Webb for Young's former job.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec wrote he "lost track of how many" passes Danny Woodhead caught during minicamp.

It is not surprising considering Woodhead has multiple 75-catch seasons under his belt, but it is still good to get confirmation. In addition to his large role as a pass catcher, Woodhead should be on the field often in the red zone, which is bad news for Terrance West. Even after Kenneth Dixon returns from his four-game suspension, Woodhead will likely be the Ravens back to own both in standard and PPR.
Jun 19 - 8:54 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec writes TE Darren Waller struggled with consistency during the offseason program.

"On one play, he’s running past starting safety Tony Jefferson and making a big catch downfield," Zrebiec wrote. "A few plays later, a pass bounced off his hands and was intercepted." A converted wide receiver, Zrebiec believes Waller is "the most talented and gifted tight end" on the roster who can help the Ravens become faster on offense. If he can become more consistent, Waller has a path to targets with Dennis Pitta gone and Ben Watson (Achilles'), Maxx Williams (knee), and Crockett Gillmore (shoulder, back) returning from injuries.
Jun 19 - 8:48 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec writes WR/KR Keenan Reynolds looks "far more natural as both a receiver and a returner" this offseason.

An option quarterback at Navy, Reynolds struggled in his transition to receiver as a rookie, but Zrebiec writes he "fielded punts cleanly and confidently" while making "a handful of tough catches" at minicamp. Reynolds remains a longshot to make the final roster in a suddenly crowded receiver room, but he will help his chances dramatically if he proves capable as a returner.
