Better late than never for Ravens' Streeter


Better late than never for Ravens' Streeter

Tommy Streeter sighting!

We havent been hearing much about the rookie receiver from Miami since training camp began, especially in the preseason. But there he was, late in Thursdays game, catching a couple of passes from No. 3 quarterback Curtis Painter.

Most impressively, Streeter turned a short slant into a 33-yard touchdown. Showing hes learned something from the Ravens veteran receivers and the coaching staff, Streeter broke off the line and got inside the Jaguars defensive back pressing him by executing a swim move. He grabbed the strike from Painter and quickly pulled away from the defense for the score.

(He then celebrated his TD with a wing-flapping display reminiscent of Tony Siragusa.)

Thats the intriguing talent that made the Ravens draft him on the sixth round. But there are only so many receiver spots, and Deonte Thompson has made a bigger splash this preseason.

Placing Streeter on the bubble, CBSSports.coms Jason Butt wrote before Thursdays game: It's hard to argue Streeter has had a more impressive preseason than undrafted rookie Deonte Thompson, who's shown more versatility and polish with his game. Streeter possesses a lot of upside, being 6-5 and 220 pounds with tremendous straight-line speed. His route running remains raw, and he hasn't broken too many big plays in practice.

Could Streeter be headed to the practice squad?

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season


Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
