What's word on Streeter?


What's word on Streeter?

The Tommy Streeter Project has been under construction. The question is, might it be completed by September?

The 6-foot-5 receiver from the University of Miami, taken in the sixth round of the draft, would offer intriguing options to the Ravens if he could be NFL-ready when the regular season starts. Is that possible?

"It's going to take some time, it's a matter of time, but I don't think it's going to be as long as some people think," coach John Harbaugh said, as reported by the Ravens website. "He's got all the tools in the world. He's got a good vision for what he wants to become as a player."

Streeters height and speed and the potential red-zone target he represents are what make him bear watching in training camp. But its a crowded field at wide receiver.

"I've made mistakes and also made a few plays," Streeter told baltimoreravens.com. "I'm just trying not to make the same mistake twice. I'm trying to come out here, compete at a high level, have fun and continue to get better each day.

"Every day is not going to be a good day, but as long as you can stack days on top of each other, where you learned something and got better, then in the long run everything will come together and you'll get in good position."

How Streeter stacks those good days days when he shows hes learning about how to run pro-quality routes and hes able to hang on to the ball will determine whether he starts the season on the practice squad or active roster or even sticks around period.

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.


“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”
