The Baltimore Ravens will be holding an Organized Team Activity (OTA) today at their Owings Mills, Maryland Training Facility. The rookies get to set how they match up against the veterans who know the team's playbook like the backs of their collective hands. It's nice to look across the line of scrimmage and see a rookie playing out of position, but now dealing with a majority of the team's veterans in camp, the level of competition will begin to ratchet up.
Baltimore Beatdown will be there along the sidelines, taking in all the action and bringing it to you as soon as it is over. However, don't expect to see the big name players who were not in camp last week, as the same issues remain, be it injuries (Terrell Suggs), contract status (Ray Rice), or aging veteran preferences (Ray Lewis, Ed Reed).
There still is a decent chance that both Lewis and Reed show up, but regardless, they will be here and ready when the time comes. More news, photos and interviews to follow as they are captured on digital media and posted for your viewing and reading pleasure.
