Baltimore Ravens Roundup: 'Jack-of-all-trades' QB Trace McSorely excited for new role

The weekend is here and before you make plans, catch up on the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. QB Trace McSorely is excited for his "Jack-of-all-trades" role this upcoming season with the Ravens. Expect him to be returning punts like New Orleans' backup QB Taysom Hill. The sixth-round draft pick is the third-string QB on the depth chart and will likely have work to do for a roster spot.

2. Wednesday Pro Football Focus ranked Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram No. 2 among the best rushing tandems ahead of the 2019 NFL season.' Last year Jackson had 130 rushing attempts and with a bruiser like Ingram by his side that number may go down but keep the production up.

Looking Ahead:

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

The 2019 NFL schedule is set! See the Baltimore Ravens defend the AFC North at M&T Bank Stadium this season. Get your tickets now at www.BaltimoreRavens.com/tickets.

Report: Terrell Suggs angling to be claimed by Ravens

Report: Terrell Suggs angling to be claimed by Ravens

Terrell Suggs is currently available for 31 NFL teams, but there's reportedly only one team he wants to play for. 

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Suggs only has interest in returning to the Ravens, where he spent the entirety of his career before heading to Arizona this offseason.

Suggs was placed on waivers by the Cardinals on Friday.

Schefter's report states that Suggs has told some people he is unlikely to report anywhere other than Baltimore, showing a desire to, "finish his NFL career in the same city in which he started it."

Suggs is the all-time franchise leader in sacks (132.5) and games played (229) for the Ravens. This year, he has 5.5 sacks, seven quarterback hits and 23 tackles as a member of the Cardinals. It's his first season not in the purple and black. 

The Ravens rank 15th in the NFL with 34 sacks, and could use a pass-rusher like Suggs before the team's playoff push. 

Suggs' position to other teams is likely genuine, as the 37-year-old would certainly love to join the 12-2 Ravens before a playoff push. He was a member of the Ravens when they beat the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII in 2013 and also has seven Pro Bowls and a Defensive Player of The Year award to his name as well. 

With just two games left before the playoffs begin, Suggs' wild ride from Baltimore to Arizona looks to be headed right back to where his career started.

Marcus Peters fined for beer-drinking celebration with fan

Marcus Peters fined for beer-drinking celebration with fan

Well, that's one expensive beer. 

Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters was handed a hefty $14,037 fine for drinking a beer in the stands with a fan to celebrate the game-sealing interception against the Buffalo Bills that give Baltimore its ninth win in a row. 

Peters, who came to Baltimore in a trade with the LA Rams that allowed them to clear space for Jalen Ramsey, has been an excellent addition to the Ravens secondary. His tip preserved the one-score win as Josh Allen attempted to thread the needle with a minute left.

Unfortunately for Peters, not much beer even made it to the All-Pro's mouth. He showered the beer all over his face to celebrate with the surrounding fans. 

Despite the fine, it was another memorable moment for this memorable Ravens season. 

Peters' emoji-filled response was perfect. 

Thankfully for Peters, however, although he'll still have to pay the fine, something good is coming from something so pure. Thanks, Bud Light.
