Marlon Humphrey to be latest Raven to appear on Celebrity Family Feud

Marlon Humphrey to be latest Raven to appear on Celebrity Family Feud

Marlon Humphrey will be back in the spotlight this weekend as he is set to appear on Celebrity Family Feud’s NFL edition this Sunday.

The Ravens cornerback will compete alongside a number of other rising stars in the league in hopes of defeating the Hall of Fame legends.

Humphrey will team up with Colts linebacker Darius Leonard, Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton, Chiefs running back Damien Williams and Packers running back Aaron Jones to represent the league’s youth. 

They will take on some of the NFL’s greatest like eight-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Cris Carter, seven-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle and Super Bowl champion Orlando Pace, five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver and three-time Super Bowl champion Michael Irvin, five-time Pro Bowl linebacker and Super Bowl champion as a coach Kevin Green and 11-time Pro Bowl defensive end Bruce Smith.

Humphrey now joins a line of Ravens players who have appeared on the show in the past including Lamar Jackson who took the stage last year. While Jackson had his shining moments and guessed a few No. 1 answers, he was also victim to a number of Steve Harvey’s jokes after some outrageous guesses and his line that stole the show: “Granny got the whole wardrobe.”

His team ultimately fell to the NFL legends who won $25,000 for charity.

Terrell Suggs also appeared on the show in 2015, providing plenty of laughs when he nearly destroyed the buzzer on one guess. He ultimately helped his AFC peers defeat the NFC win the game.

Humphrey will follow in the footsteps of some of the Ravens’ greatest this weekend as he represents the league’s top rising stars. Last season, he recorded 62 tackles, 14 passes defended, three interceptions and was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time.

Celebrity Family Feud will air Sunday at 8:00 p.m. on ABC.

Lamar Jackson admits he cried after seeing himself on Madden 21 cover

Lamar Jackson admits he cried after seeing himself on Madden 21 cover

Like most of us, Lamar Jackson grew up playing Madden. He spent his childhood busting big runs with Michael Vick, carving up defenses with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady or dominating on the ground with LaDanian Tomlinson.

Most of us worshipped the players on the Madden cover. For an entire year they popped up on our TV screens as the game loaded, not to mention they were likely the most exciting player to use in that particular season. Jackson is one of the few who can say he's one of them, which is a reality he admitted brought him to tears. 

“They revealed to me the cover early,” Jackson told Steve Smith. “I don’t cry about stuff. I didn’t cry when I won the Heisman, I didn’t cry when I won all the other accolades. But when I seen the cover, I actually shed tears, like, ‘What the? It’s unreal.’”

Most players in the past would probably think winning the Heisman is more worthy of tears than being on the Madden cover, but that generation of players didn't grow up with the game as Jackson did.

This isn't to say the Madden cover is a bigger accomplishment than the Heisman trophy, but you can no longer downplay the significance it holds to players dominating the league now. 

When you hear Jackson's response to gracing the cover, it's easy to understand why he was able to shake off an underwhelming Madden rating. Ratings change, but the Madden cover won't.

Report: Ravens add Kenjon Barner to crowded running back room

Report: Ravens add Kenjon Barner to crowded running back room

The Ravens running back room has suddenly become a tad more crowded.

Baltimore has reportedly signed seven-year veteran Kenjon Barner, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The addition of Barner likely has little to do with Baltimore's plan on offense, as Mark Ingram and rookie J.K. Dobbins are expected to carry the bulk of the Ravens' rushing attack.

Barner, a former star at the University of Oregon, spent the past year with the Atlanta Falcons as the team's primary returner. For Baltimore, bringing in a guy like Barner makes sense, as one of the team's primary return men from a year ago, De'Anthony Thomas, decided to opt-out of the 2020 season.

The signing of Barner is a low-risk, high-reward one for Baltimore. Rookie James Proche is also expected to be in the mix in the return game.
