Add "backfield" to the list of things that other teams will have a hard time figuring out when it comes to the Baltimore Ravens offense. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman mentioned that there would be a "rotation" system in the backfield that will change each week.
As mentioned, rookie running back JK Dobbins had the most snaps last Sunday, followed by veteran Mark Ingram. This is the part that I think he's talking about as far as changing every week -- if someone has a hot hand, that guy will likely get most of the snaps, rather than have it planned out ahead of time.
Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams reworked his contract with the team, creating about $3 million worth of cap space.
Williams is heading into his eighth season with the Ravens. There was a time when Williams was a dominant force on the defensive line, and now that is not the case. He isn't bad by any means, just not as effective as he once was.
This reworking makes me think they're looking for extra room to extend someone like Marlon Humphrey.
Of all the things to be worried about this season, Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Ronnie Stanley is not worrying about his next contract. Stanley is on the final season of his rookie deal after the team exercised the fifth-year option on him last year.
Stanley spoke with reporters on Monday, and this is what he had to say about the situation -
Stanley is one of those guys that will get paid regardless if he stays with the team or goes somewhere else. If he has a season like last year, it'll be difficult for the Ravens to justify letting him walk.
