Ravens add undrafted free agents

The Ravens spent the hours after the 2012 draft agreeing to terms with undrafted free agent rookies. Heres a list of the players they plan to sign, all pending physicals, according to the Carroll County Times:

Chris Anzevino - C, Kent State
John Brantley - QB, Florida
Charles Brown - CB, North Carolina
Lamont Bryant - TE, Morgan State
James Carmon - T, Mississippi State
Jack Cornell - G, Illinois
Chad Diehl - FB, Clemson
Bruce Figgins - FB, Georgia
Devin Goda - WR, Slippery Rock
Dorian Graham - WR, Syracuse
Elliott Henigan - DT, UAB
Nick Jean-Baptiste - DT, Baylor
Austin Johnson - LB, Tennessee
Ishmaaily Kitchen - DT, Kent State
Antoine McClain - GT, Clemson
Alfred McCullough - G, Alabama
Nick Provo - TE, Syracuse
Chyl Quarles - S, Wake Forest
Bobby Rainey - RB, Western Kentucky
Deonte Thompson - WR, Florida
Justin Tucker - K, Texas

One year after a player with local connections, former Maryland receiver and Baltimore native LaQuan Williams, made the team as an undrafted free agent, the Ravens added another. The 6-5-, 225 pound Bryant caught 21 passes for Morgan State in 2011.

Jean-Baptiste, a 335-pound nose tackle, is an interesting prospect for the defensive interior. He had four sacks, 8.5 tackles for losses and 36 overall tackles for Baylor, and could challenge for a roster spot backing up Terrence Cody.

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.
