Unlike the rest of the NFL, the Ravens are coming into training camp with nothing hanging over them. No offseason reports that were damaging to the team or it's players, no major trouble with the law, and no contract disputes.
In fact, the Ravens went out this offseason and got work done by resigning several of their key players and adding in some new veterans at some of their weakest spots. Currently, the Ravens are expected to attempt to extend kicker Justin Tucker, right guard Marshal Yanda and left guard Kelechi Osemele on long-term contracts. While that hasn't happened as of yet, no one here at the Ravens' Under Armour Training Facility seems to be all that concerned about it.
Around the NFL, teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks spent this off-season worrying about major contracts for their key players like Dez Bryant, Russell Wilson, and Demariyus Thomas. With that and players getting arrested or cut for acting up, the Ravens organization has to feel both lucky and proud that their message has gotten through to it's players.
It is also expected that all 90 members of the Ravens roster will be appearing for the first time together in 2015 today as the veterans are set to report. Training camp will start out without a hitch even if it is 90 degrees out today and rather muggy.
For a team looking to get to the Super Bowl this season, the Ravens are having things start off incredibly well. Hopefully for everyone, they can keep up the momentum into a clean, and safe training camp.
