Ravens WR Mike Wallace warns the NFL he will 'show some people' he's not done

Early in his career, Mike Wallace was considered to be one of the top up-and-coming wide receivers in the league. He had size, elite speed and could blow the top off of a defense with the greatest of ease. In 2010 and 2011, his second and third seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Wallace had 18 total touchdowns and more than 2,400 yards. Following the 2012 season, he inked a five...

OPINION: Crowded backfield problem for Baltimore Ravens?

As the start of 2016 training camp approaches, I’m thinking the Baltimore Ravens coaches have tough decisions to make with their crowded backfield after forfeiting one week of OTA’s. Or do they? Having a crowded backfield of 6 running backs on the Baltimore Ravens roster creates competition to remain on the 2016 opening day roster. AROUND COVER32 Fantasy Friday: Five players...

The Baltimore Ravens Sweet Spot for Wins

Taking a look at recent Ravens win trends, coined for this purpose as the Ravens Sweet Spot for Wins, is an interesting aside. Especially as we bide our time waiting for the proverbial NFL Summer to be over, and for training camp to begin. For example, consider the 2015 season: 5 wins. 60% at home. 60% on artificial turf–a noticeable fact, seeing as how the home stadium will...

The curious release by Ravens of tackle Eugene Monroe

You felt it coming, but you also know it should have worked out better for Eugene Monroe in Baltimore. The Ravens gave up a lot (two mid-round draft picks) to get him from Jacksonville a few years ago. They liked his play at left tackle enough to give him a sweet contract extension as recently as 2013. He seemed happy to be with the Ravens in the beginning—and his wife who is...

Why would the Ravens go out of their way to mention Eugene Monroe’s advocacy of marijuana?

The Baltimore Ravens had several understandable reasons for cutting veteran offensive tackle Eugene Monroe. After all, Monroe is 29, which in football terms is far from young. And he’s injury-prone, having missed 15 games the last two seasons. Plus, the Ravens used the No. 6 overall pick in the draft on Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley. Oh, and Monroe was slated to cost...
