Baltimore Ravens Roundup: 2019 draft class reports for minicamp

Before you wrap up your week and get ready to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with an extra large margarita, here's the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. The Ravens' 2019 rookie class reported for duty Thursday as their rookie minicamp will be taking place Friday and Saturday at the Under Armour Performance Center. While first-round pick Marquise Brown will be sidelined for camp while he recovers from Lisfranc foot surgery, Trace McSorley, Justice Hill, Jaylen Furgeson, Ben Powers, Miles Boykin and undrafted free agents will begin fighting for their spot on the 53-man roster. The Baltimore Ravens laid out a few questions facing the rookies heading into camp. 

2. Wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo announced on Twitter that after 12 months of rehab he has finally been cleared to play. After undergoing surgery on his leg in May of 2018, his rehabilitation took much longer than expected causing Adeboyejo to question whether or not he'd every play football again. Check out his Twitter thread where he describes the last 12 months and how grateful he is to get back to work. 

3. Unrestricted free agent Maxx Williams has found a new home. The tight end announced via Twitter that he will be heading to Arizona to play with Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. Selected by the Ravens in the second-round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Williams had 16 receptions for 143 yards and one touchdown in 2018. 

Looking Ahead:

May 3-6: Three-day rookie minicamp

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get long-term deal done with designated franchise tag player

The 2019 NFL schedule is set!  See the Baltimore Ravens defend the AFC North at M&T Bank Stadium this season. Get your tickets now at www.BaltimoreRavens.com/tickets.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Defensive tackle Michael Pierce signs restricted free agent tender

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Defensive tackle Michael Pierce signs restricted free agent tender

Here is the latest Baltimore Ravens news for your Thursday morning.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Michael Pierce will be staying in Baltimore. The defensive tackle signed his restricted free agent tender Wednesday. Pierce will be entering his fourth season with the Ravens and was the team's top defensive player in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus. The Ravens could still come to an agreement with Pierce on a long-term contract. If that does not happen, the 26-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent in 2020.  

2. The Ravens now have a solid running back depth chart with Mark Ingram, Gus Edwards and 2019 fourth-round pick Justice Hill. But with the additions of Ingram and Hill will come the departure of one of the backs currently on their roster.

So, who is most likely to go? ESPN's Bill Barnwell listed every NFL team's most likely candidate for a post-draft trade or cut, and for the Ravens he's predicting Kenneth Dixon gets axed. 

"Dixon has been generally productive as a pro, but knee injuries have limited the 2016 fourth-rounder to 18 games in three seasons," Barnwell said. 

"With Dixon entering the final year of his rookie contract, a team such as the Buccaneers or Jaguars could take a flier on Dixon for a late-round pick in hopes of finding an impact young starter."

3. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has released it's latest Super Bowl odds and the Ravens currently sit a 40-1 to win it all. To not much surprise (that was strange to type), the Cleveland Browns have the best odds in the AFC North to win the Super Bowl at 20-1. The New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs have the best odds of all 32 teams to take home the Lombardi Trophy at 6-1. 

Looking Ahead:

May 3-6 or May 10-13: Potential three-day rookie mini camp

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get long-term deal done with designated franchise tag player
