Ravens pick Streeter, Tyson in final rounds

The Ravens picked wide receiver Tommy Streeter and defensive lineman DeAngelo Tyson with their final picks in this springs draft.
The team had been looking for some help at both spots heading into the draft. Streeter is big, 6-foot-5, 219 pounds, and comes to the Ravens from Miami. They picked him in the sixth round with the 198th overall selection.
Theres been a lot of speculation the Ravens were looking for another receiver to connect with Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smithespecially a bigger one. It could make the passing game more dangerous if a third wide receiver could pitch in. Joe Flacco will likely be happy with this selection.
Streeter finished with 46 catches for 811 yards last season. The Ravens web site talked about how impressive his speed was to the team he posted a 4.40 in the 40-yard dash at the draft combine. That could be big especially when combined with Smith's blazing speed.
In the final round, the Ravens grabbed Tyson. He played at Georgia and was the 236th overall pick. Tyson is a 6-foot-2, 315-pound senior is considered to be solid against the run, something the Ravens always have valued.
Ever since the Ravens have been one of the NFLs top defenses since the year 2000, theyve always been tough versus the run. They lost a player like Cory Redding from the line to free agency and need to replace him.
Could he wind up being one of the team's late-round steals? Time will tell.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: The return of Pernell McPhee

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including the return of Pernell McPhee.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Pernell McPhee is a Baltimore Raven again! The Ravens signed McPhee to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McPhee was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 during the fifth round and spent four seasons with the team before landing in Chicago and then last season in Washington. The Ravens hope to capitalize on McPhee's 31 career sacks as they hone-in on producing a "diversified pass rush."

2. The Ravens have also signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was last with Pittsburgh. Prince was waived by the Steelers after not seeing a down during the 2018 season. The Steelers picked up Prince as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina.

3. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 regular season. Peterson reportedly violated the NFL's performance-enhancement drug policy. The Ravens face the Cardinals during Week 2, so this is good news for the guys in purple.

4. The Ravens have reportedly signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ray had an unproductive season with the Broncos last year with one sack and one forced fumble in 11 games played.

Looking Ahead:

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