Garceau: Ravens Off Season Was Downright Brutal

The offseason was not kind to the Ravens in fact it was downright brutal! Zach Orr the team’s leading tackler in 2016 announced his retirement at age 24 due to a spinal condition, he’s since decided to resume his career but it won’t be in Baltimore.

Cornerback Tavon Young who had a terrific rookie season will miss his entire second season after tearing his ACL during organized team activities.

Dennis Pitta was the team’s leading receiver with 86 catches in 2016 but he was released after he suffered a serious hip injury during OTA’s that likely will end his career.

More tight end trouble when Darren Waller was suspended for at least one year without pay for violating the league’s policy on substances of abuse.

Kenneth Dixon expected to be a front line running back was suspended 4 games for violating the NFL’s PED policy, then came word that he’d miss several weeks with a knee injury followed by news the knee injury would cost him the entire season.

Thursday all that was in the rearview mirror as the Ravens opened training camp with their first full squad workout of the ’17 season, a new beginning, a fresh start for a team that has missed the playoffs 3 of the last 4 years.

Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead added to the offense, a beefed up secondary that’s been suspect for the past few years. Plenty to be optimistic about for fans and the team but then came three breaking and distracting stories.
