OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw to some of his new wide receivers and tight ends at a public park near the team's practice facility.
Even though training camp was more than a week away, the Ravens were eager to get back to work. A group of local kids playing pickup football eagerly approached the players, which added to the excitement of the upcoming season.
The extra practice time paid off as there were few drops among the receivers on the first day of camp Thursday. Flacco looked revitalized and was crisp, zipping balls downfield with pinpoint precision.
