There were a number of players on the bubble in the final days of the pre-season. Sergio Kindle appeared to be one of them.
The third-year linebacker has been through so much in his days with the Ravens. He did very well at the start of the pre-season but struggled after that. Still, he made the final cut, and coach John Harbaugh said Monday that the team is hoping Kindle can help, especially with the pass rush.
Sergios potential as a pass rusher is something thats really important, Harbaugh said when speaking with the media Monday. Thats something that weve seen him do in practice, in the pre-season. Hes got some talent, obviously.
The Ravens are going to need a lot of help in the pass rush, especially with Terrell Suggs out for at least the first six games of the season.
The pass rush was not very strong in the pre-season and will be one of the biggest questions for the defense in the first part of the regular season.
His ability to be a tough pass rusher was a big reason the Ravens made him their first choice two years ago. Kindle has worked his way back from the serious injury he suffered two years ago, and Harbaugh said the team remains hopeful the linebacker can help them.
After all, theyve given Kindle a lot of room and time to make his way back. Theyre not finished yet.
Hes still probably on his way back from a really bad brain injury, Harbaugh said. Its remarkable how far hes come, and were not ready to give up on him. And I dont knowwe never would give up on him and thats probably a bad choice of words but were still looking at him as a pass rusher and a physical edge-setter as an outside linebacker.
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 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.
