Baltimore Ravens Roundup: John Harbaugh expecting Kenny Young and Patrick Onwuasor to step up at ILB in 2019

Here's all of the Baltimore Ravens news you missed over the weekend.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Head coach John Harbaugh is expecting Kenny Young and Patrick Onwuasor to step up at inside linebacker in 2019 with the departures of C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs and Za'Darius Smith.

“Those guys have to step up,” Harbaugh said at the NFL Annual League Meetings. “It’s kind of what we said before. We lost our starting All-Pro inside linebacker (Mosley). Good. We lost our rising star pass rusher from Kentucky (Za’Darius Smith). Good. We lost our 16-year veteran leader (Terrell Suggs). Probably a Hall of Famer. Good.

“....We’ll find a way and those guys are a big part of it."

2. In an interview with Denver-area radio station Orange & Blue 760 on Friday, Brandon Marshall revealed the Ravens were interested in signing the inside linebacker to a long-term deal but wanted to wait until May 8 in order to keep their 2020 compensatory picks. Compensatory picks are given to teams that lose more qualifying free agents than they gained the previous offseason. The Ravens currently hold a third-round comp pick in the 2020 draft. 

3. After his 2018-19 season was put on hold when he was assaulted in downtown Baltimore Sept. 1, kicker Kaare Vedvik is expected to be back at training camp for the Ravens this summer. 

"He was with us all season, he’s training now," Harbaugh said at the NFL Annual League Meetings. "He’ll be one of our camp kickers. Actually, I fully expect that he’ll kick well enough for us to trade him. That’s kind of, I would say, the goal."

4. Many current and former Ravens players gathered at Royal Farms Arena Saturday for Torrey Smith's Charity Basketball game, including Justin Tucker, Anquan Boldin, Anthony Levine Sr., and Ed Reed.


Looking Ahead:

April 15: Voluntary OTAs may begin

April 19: Deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets

April 25-27: 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, Tn.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Free agent Gerald McCoy to visit Baltimore

Kick off your holiday weekend with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. One of the most obvious needs for the Ravens is help rushing the passer, and they're hoping to find some of that help on the interior in the form of free agent Gerald McCoy. The longtime Buccaneer DL visited Cleveland last week, but left town without agreeing to a contract.

Reportedly interested in playing for a contender, the former top-five pick is scheduled to visit the Ravens on Tuesday.

2. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is still struggling to throw the ball, as he noted things aren't right yet when it comes to accuracy. Media members noticed the ball wobbling through the air on many throws, and Jackson told them he thinks his hand is too high on the ball. If he's going to successfully run Greg Roman's new offensive scheme, Jackson will eventually need to be able to hit his receivers in stride with greater regularity.

Looking Ahead:

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

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Lamar Jackson is his own biggest critic

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including how quarterback Lamar Jackson has fared during OTAs.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Following a January surgery on his left ankle, safety Tony Jefferson remains sidelined after the first week of OTAs. Originally, Jefferson was expected to return 4-6 weeks after surgery. However, now that it's 5 months later, his return timetable is becoming more and more concerning. 

2. Quarterback Lamar Jackson spoke with Ravens media Thursday about his progress not only learning the new offense implemented by Offensive Coordinator, Greg Roman, but learning the names of his new teammates as well. After another day of OTAs, Jackson was his biggest critic despite a solid day of running plays namely passing drills. “I’d say my first day, I sucked,” Jackson said to Ravens media. “Second day, I did better. Today was alright, but it could have been better. I always try to be perfect in practice. It was alright for the first week.”

Looking Ahead:

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