The Ravens will have OTA's in a little over two weeks, which will be the first time that the Ravens will assemble as a team since the end of the season. Soon after that, the Ravens will have mini-camps and then they'll have full-on training camp to prepare for the 2016 season. Here's some things to watch out for between now and August.
Joe Flacco's degree of participation
We've heard all offseason how well Joe Flacco's recovery is going and everyone is confident that he'll be able to start Week One. Joe Flacco fully participating in the offseason program would be a good sign that he's ready to go in Week One
Buck Allen vs. Justin Forsett
Forsett will be given the starting job once he is healthy, but Allen will have the chance to unseat him in camp. With few controversies at major positions, this is something to watch out for.
John Urschel vs. Ryan Jensen
This is another battle to watch, as these two will battle it out for Kelechi Osemele's old spot.
Steve Smith and Terrell Suggs
The two veterans are coming back from major injuries. Seeing how they perform in the offseason training programs will give us a clue about how they'll perform in 2016.
The tight end is entering his second season. Look for him to be gaining muscle and making strides in his development as a player.
The Ravens are getting ready for the 2016 season. There will be plenty of things to keep track of during the spring and summer. For full coverage of the Ravens in OTA's, minicamps, and training camp, make sure to stay here at Baltimore Beatdown.
