Report: Ravens sign another corner to aid depleted unit

The Ravens have signed veteran cornerback Shareece Wright, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. 

Signing Wright serves the dual purpose of providing more cornerback depth, and giving the Ravens some inside information on Sunday’s opponent, the 49ers. Wright was released by the 49ers on Saturday, after spending the previous four seasons with the Chargers.

It remains to be seen how much Wright helps the Ravens. The 49ers didn’t activate him through their first four games, so he was clearly not in their plans. However, the Ravens got strong play of out cornerback Will Davis immediately after they traded for him last month. Unfortunately, Davis suffered a season-ending knee injury during Sunday’s loss to the Browns, which precipitated the Ravens’ need to add another corner.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh indicated Monday that the Ravens might sign another corner.

“It’s not that late,” Harbaugh said. “You start getting past this time – close to the midway point – that’s where it kind of dries up on you, but there are some corners out there right now that can play, and we’re looking at those guys, and we have a couple of guys on our practice roster, too.”

Either Asa Jackson or Chris James could be promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. But the Ravens are hoping the 28-year-old Wright can help them more than he helped the 49ers.

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.
