Ravens Acquire Marcus Peters From Rams

Oct 15, 2019 8:05 PM

The Los Angeles Rams have traded Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens for linebacker Kenny Young and a draft pick in 2020.

The pick will reportedly be a fifth-rounder.

Peters is in the fifth and final year of his rookie deal.

The trade came one day after the Rams placed Aqib Talib on injured reserve and a few hours before they landed Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars.

John Harbaugh Would Prefer Lamar Jackson Not Take 'Certain Hits'

Oct 15, 2019 10:08 AM

Lamar Jackson ran the ball 19 times for a career-high 152 yards this past Sunday, but John Harbaugh came away a bit concerned.

Jackson took a fair amount of hits against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Harbaugh said that those hits are "part of the game right now with the way we play" while adding that there were still a couple of shots that he'd prefer to see Jackson avoid.

"I'm impressed with his toughness, there's no question about that. The goal is not probably to take certain hits," Harbaugh said. "There were probably two in them there that I probably would've rather seen him not get hit on, you know? But I think we also have to acknowledge that those are going to happen throughout the course of the year — hopefully less rather than more. You don't want a quarterback — I wouldn't expect him to be running that many times very many times this year; that's just the way it went."

Lamar Jackson: I Hate Running, I'd Rather Pass

Sep 26, 2019 9:23 AM

Lamar Jackson claimed throughout the offseason that he would be running less and passing more.

After three games, the Baltimore Ravens quarterback continued the narrative.

"I hate running," Jackson said. "Only if I have to, but my job is to get the ball to the receivers, the tight ends, running backs. If I have to run, I'll do it, but I'd rather just sit back and pass it. I like throwing touchdowns instead of running them."

Jackson is averaging 33 pass attempts and nine rushes per game this season. As a starter in 2018, he averaged 17 carries per game.

He is still on pace to gain 917 yards rushing, which would rank as the fourth most by a quarterback.

Ravens Win 16th Straight Preseason Game

Aug 23, 2019 9:19 AM

The Baltimore Ravens have won 16 straight preseason games.

The Ravens topped the Philadelphia Eagles 26-15 in a lightning-shortened game at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday night.

The winning streak is the longest such streak in the NFL in at least 25 years. The Ravens haven't lost in the preseason since Sept. 3, 2015.

"I don't know how significant it is," John Harbaugh said. "I think it's significant in a sense that I think our coaches do a great job of coaching in training camp. We develop players really well."

Lamar Jackson Has 'Fixed' Ball Security Issues

Aug 21, 2019 8:18 AM

Lamar Jackson fumbled 12 times last season, which led the NFL by a wide margin.

The quarterback fumbled three more times in the Baltimore Ravens' playoff loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jackson told reporters on Tuesday that he's "fixed" the problem and that his only concern for the regular season is winning.

"I think it's been way better. Just watching the practices, you probably saw it," Harbaugh said. "Lamar makes very few mistakes with ball handling right now. The snaps have been much more accurate than they have in the past, so that starts everything off on the right foot. You haven't seen a lot of the more complicated ball-handling plays, but the ones we have run have been well done."

John Harbaugh: Marquise Brown 'Has A Ways To Go'

Aug 20, 2019 8:20 AM

The Baltimore Ravens drafted Marquise Brown in the first round, but John Harbaugh is tempering expectations.

Brown just recently returned to practice after recovering from foot surgery a little over a week ago.

"He basically practiced for the first time in a more aggressive setting, so I saw a guy that was practicing for the first time," Harbaugh said. "He just needs to get accustomed to it. It's all new for him — the speed of it, the thinking, the lining up, running the right route. He has a ways to go with all of that. I'm confident he'll get there, and we'll know what to do to use him, how to use him early in the season. But it's just great work for him."

Vikings Acquire Kicker From Ravens For Draft Pick

Aug 11, 2019 3:37 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have traded an undisclosed draft pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for kicker Kaare Vedvik.

The pick will be a fifth rounder in 2020, according to a source.

Vedvik, a native of Norway, was 12-of-13 on field goals in the preseason the past two years for Baltimore after being signed as an undrafted kicker in 2018.

In Thursday's preseason opener, Vedvik increased his value by making all four of his field goals, including a 55-yarder, and had two punts over 50 yards.
