Tuesday Ravens links: Lorenzo Taliaferro's second chance, Jerry Rice Jr.'s next workout

Larry French

Read what others around the web are saying about the Ravens.

Ravens rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro wasn't able to go the traditional route in college, based on mistakes he made as a youngster.

He could've been a Division I prospect, but grades cost him scholarships from major-conference schools. He was forced to attend Lackawanna College before enrolling at Coastal Carolina, an FCS school in Myrtle Beach, S.C. But after letting his grades slide as an adolescent, Taliaferro got it together, graduating with a sociology degree when it was all said and done.

Speaking to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, Taliaferro said he's excited to have a second chance to realize his dreams.

After working out with the Ravens at their rookie camp, Jerry Rice Jr. has moved on with a workout across the country, one he's extremely familiar with.

The son of the greatest receiver to play the game will work out with the 49ers next. CSNBaltimore.com's Clifton Brown wrote about Rice's next move.
