Osemele impressing coaches early in camp

One of the more interesting issues that has come out of the early days of training camp has been the somewhat unsettled situation with the offensive line. Theres still a lot thats up in the air and will probably remain that way for awhile..
However, one thing thats clear is that the younger guys like Kelechi Osemele will be getting a chance to show their stuff. Osemele has been working at right tackle, and the rookies been impressing offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.
Cameron talked about what the Ravens coaches have seen from Osemele in the first several days of training camp. While talking with the media recently, Camerson said the rookie has gotten off to a good start.
Hes just what we thought we would see a big, athletic, tough, smart football player who will get better every snap he plays, Cameron said. Hes going to just keep getting better, better and better for the next three or four years. I would imagine hell be just like Michael Oherevery snap better, every day get better, every week, every game.
Right now, Cameron said its learning time for Osemele and the other rookies. Osemele was put at right tackle since Oher got moved to left tackle due to the brief absence of Bryant McKinnie, last years starter at that spot.
But Osemeles status could change if the Ravens put McKinnie back in on the left side and move Oher back to the right. No matter where the rookie winds up playing, right now, the team is working on teaching him the basics of what he needs to succeed.
Its just a matter of getting his fundamentals down and getting him some game experience, Cameron said. As you guys know, we draft people around here for a reason. Weve got us another one.

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.
