7/25: Training Camp Practice Highlights

Posted Jul 25, 2013

Terrell Suggs impresses. Flacco jaws with defense. Jacoby draws biggest applause.

The Ravens could not have had a better day for their first full-team practice of training camp.

It was a pleasant 75 degrees on a sunny, breezy afternoon at the Under Armour Performance Center, and the players welcomed the much cooler temperatures to start off practice.

“Mother Nature saved us today,” Ray Rice said as he walked over to the sideline between plays.

“We had a great day,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “I can’t say that we practiced great. We probably practiced like you would expect to practice on the first day of training camp with a full team.”

Here are some of the highlights from Day 1:

- Terrell Suggs looked like the vintage Suggs. He was batting down passes, blowing by the tackles as a pass rusher, and constantly chirping at his offensive teammates. Harbaugh said that Suggs “practiced about as well as you can at that position.” He’s also in great shape, and clearly has been hard at work this offseason.

- “Shut up Joe. Stop crying,” Suggs told Joe Flacco when the quarterback was calling for a pass interference flag on safety Michael Huff.

- Flacco jawed right back at Suggs during parts of practice. He’s a fiery competitor and will talk trash to the defense from time-to-time. Cornerback Lardarius Webb said that he’s seen Flacco doing a little more trash talk this offseason.

- Wide receiver Jacoby Jones drew the biggest applause from the fans in attendance, as he made an impressive diving catch down the sideline. His catch was ruled out of bounds, but it still brought out big cheers. Jones has clearly become a fan favorite in Baltimore, as fans were shouting out for him to dance from the sideline. One young man even did his best impression of Jones’ touchdown dance.

- Kicker Justin Tucker also drew a big applause when he booted a 58-yard field goal through   the uprights. The kick had plenty of distance too.

- Tucker had a funny moment later in practice, as he got temporarily stuck in the kicking net picking up a football. The net collapsed on him, and he had to climb out the side to escape. “Tell me someone got that on video,” long snapper Morgan Cox joked.

- The Ravens are going through multiple looks on the defensive front. Inside linebackers Daryl Smith, Arthur Brown, Josh Bynes and Albert McClellan all got work with the first and second teams. McClellan is a versatile linebacker who could play more inside this year after being an outside backer last season.

-  At safety, Michael Huff, James Ihedigbo and Matt Elam all worked with the first team. Expectations are high for Elam, but Ihedigbo is eying a starting job.

- Tackle Kelechi Osemele spent most of the practice watching from the sidelines after he reportedly tweaked a hamstring.

- The competition at wide receiver looks wide open. All the receivers had their ups and downs throughout practice. Tandon Doss made a couple great leaping grabs down the sideline, but he also dropped an easy one that hit him in the chest. Deonte Thompson worked the middle of the field on some slant routes, but he dropped a touchdown catch that hit him in the hands. Tommy Streeter and LaQuan Williams also had a pair of nice catches on the afternoon. This race looks wide open in the early part of camp.

- Cornerback Corey Graham picked up right where he left off last season. He’s playing at a high level and tends to always be around the football. He had a couple of nice pass breakups and had tight coverage on the receivers.

- Cornerback Chris Johnson picked off Flacco on an underthrown pass during seven-on-seven drills, and then he showed off some offensive skills with a nice return.
