Report: Ravens sign ex-Saints WR after workout

The Ravens intend to sign wide receiver Joe Morgan, according to Ed Werder of ESPN. Morgan, who was released by the Saints last month, was one of several wide receivers who worked out for the Ravens on Tuesday. Ex-Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks and free agent Chuck Jacobs also worked out. Jacobs tweeted about joining the Ravens, which likely meant he would be added to the practice, while Nicks was not signed.

Morgan had four catches for 92 yards for the Saints this season before being released. His best season with the Saints was in 2012, when he caught 10 passes for 379 yards and three touchdowns. The 27-year-old Morgan has shown the potential to make big plays, with receptions of 80, 62, 48, and 44 yards during his time with the Saints.

Adding Morgan during the bye week gives him extra time to Ravens’ offense before they host the Jaguars on Nov. 15. The Ravens need help at wide receiver after losing Steve Smith for the season on Sunday with a torn Achilles. Wide receivers Michael Campanaro and Darren Waller are also out for the season, and rookie Breshad Perriman has yet to play after injuring his knee on the first day of training camp.

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.
