Three weeks away from the first weekend of the NFL season, injured tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta are on the mend and optimistic that they will be ready for the Sept. 10 season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Pitta broke his right hand during practice July 30. Dickson sprained his right shoulder while hauling in a touchdown pass in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason opener. “It's much better, a lot better,” Dickson said. “I can actually do some catching and stuff, and more conditioning.

Pernell McPhee has never operated in the spotlight on the Ravens defense, but the fourth-year outside linebacker has carved out an effective place in the rotation by both feeding on those who hog the attention, and at times, taking it away from them. With the Ravens thin on the defensive line and with stars Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil no longer every-down rushers, McPhee has seen time at both outside linebacker positions, defensive end, and nose tackle. He's not being shoehorned into the defense out of necessity, though.

One of the biggest bright spots on offense in 2011 was the emergence of second-year tight end Ed Dickson, who in his first season as a starter had 54 catches for 528 yards and five touchdowns. But Dickson's production dipped in the final month of the season and he had critical drops in both of the team's playoff games. On Monday, Dickson vowed to improve his game in all aspects. "I'm going to look at all the games, at all my drops,” he said. “I'm my worst critic. I'm going to look at the bad plays, I'm not looking at the good plays.

The Ravens had just finished Tuesday's practice on one of the hottest days of the summer, but Owen Daniels wasn't quite ready for the workout to be over. As many of his teammates headed inside, the 31-year-old stayed on the field and did some extra running, putting himself through a few more routes. "I feel really good," Daniels said afterward. "I had a little [hamstring] issue, but that's all cleared up. That's ready to go. Everything else feels really good. I'm excited to get going this first week.

The daunting task of replacing the Ravens' all-time leader in catches and receiving touchdowns will fall on a rookie with just eight catches this season. Whether it's youthful confidence or reckless abandon, Ed Dickson said he is prepared for the challenge. "I thrive in these moments," the 23-year-old tight end said Wednesday. "I want the ball. I want that big block, I want that big catch. I'm getting an opportunity and when opportunity knocks, you've got to take advantage. This is my opportunity, this is our team's opportunity to do something great and still do [well]

Each week, we bring you a Q&A with a Ravens player to help you learn a little more about the team. Today's guest is tight end Ed Dickson, the rookie who scored his first career touchdown in the team's 30-24 win against the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 19. Dickson reflected on dealing with expectations, getting familiar with his role in the offense, and enjoying life as a father. Question: How would you describe your transition to the Ravens ? Answer: I wouldn't say it was easy.

Right guard Marshal Yanda and safety Bernard Pollard did not practice all week, and they were among seven Ravens listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos at M&T Bank Stadium. Ravens' players who don't practice all week typically don't play in the weekend's game. However, the banged-up Ravens are obviously holding out hope that Yanda, who has a walking boot on his sprained right ankle, and Pollard, who aggravated a chest/ribs injury against the Washington Redskins last week, will be able to play Sunday.

Although tight end Ed Dickson acknowledged that his chances of returning as an unrestricted free agent is probably a long shot, he made a sales pitch for the Ravens to do everything they can to hold onto free agent tight end Dennis Pitta. Pitta caught 20 passes for 169 yards and one touchdown from quarterback Joe Flacco in four games since returning from a hip injury. “No. 5 [Flacco] and No. 88 [Pitta] have a connection,” Dickson said. “It's like that John Stockton and [Karl]

The Ravens currently have 89 players on their roster, and all but six of them are out on the practice field today at the Under Armour Performance Center as the team prepares for Thursday's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. The six players missing are wide receiver Deonte Thompson (left foot), tight end Dennis Pitta (dislocated right hip), center Ryan Jensen (broken left foot), linebackers Jameel McClain (spinal cord contusion) and Adrian Hamilton (right wrist)

A lot of NFL players view training camp and the preseason as a necessary evil and welcome the beginning of the regular season. But Ravens tight end Ed Dickson - who is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason after spraining his right shoulder Thursday night - is not happy about joining Dennis Pitta (broken bone in right hand) as an observer until the regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10. “It's very frustrating because these reps in camp, that's where you gel,” Dickson said in the locker room at one end of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis after Sunday's practice.

From now until May 8, the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, The Sun will look at where the Ravens stand at each position, the likelihood that they will address that spot early in the draft and some of the prospects that they may consider. The Ravens have eight total picks in the three-day draft: one in each of the first, second, fifth and sixth rounds, and two each in the third and fourth rounds. Today we'll be examining tight end: Current tight ends under contract: Dennis Pitta, Owen Daniels, Matt Furstenburg, Nathan Overbay.

As the  Ravens  cleaned out their lockers in January after an 8-8 season, several players spoke about how they expected to be back in Baltimore in 2014. But while  Ed Dickson  said Charm City will always be his “first love,” he seemed resigned to the fact that his days here were done. Two months later, free agency hasn't treated the athletic but maddeningly inconsistent tight end kindly. Dickson has drawn interest from teams like the  Jacksonville Jaguars  and  New York Jets ,  according to my colleague Aaron Wilson , but a lucrative contract or a prime job opportunity apparently hasn't presented itself.

A week into free agency, all of the marquee players have been snatched up and few household names remain on the open market. Most teams, including the Ravens, have filled important needs, which could change their priorities when it comes to the NFL draft, which is still a couple months away. The world-wide web of NFL draft analysts, always ready to mock, has already reacted to a week's worth of moves, releasing updated mock drafts to reflect the free-agent frenzy that started last Tuesday.

The NFL scouting combine is in a couple of weeks, unofficially starting the league's silly season. But even though the NFL draft is still three long months away, draft analysts continue to update their mock drafts.   The last time I rounded up a few notable mock drafts, back in early January , many draft analysts linked the Ravens to Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, whose size and strong hands could make him a fit. This time around, I read several mock drafts that had the Ravens taking Evans with their first-round pick.

One year ago, the Ravens' coaching staff was busy preparing for Super Bowl XLVII instead of evaluating draft prospects at the Senior Bowl. It's an entirely different situation this week. Following an 8-8 season where they failed to make the playoffs for the first time in six years, the Ravens' offseason has launched much earlier than they had hoped. And the majority of the Ravens' coaches are at the Senior Bowl -- except for coach John Harbaugh as he continues to interview offensive coordinator candidates back in Baltimore -- along with general manager Ozzie Newsome and the scouting department.

MOBILE, Ala.  - Two players on different ends of the tight end spectrum made their respective bids for NFL job opportunities Tuesday at the Senior Bowl. North Carolina junior All-American Eric Ebron isn't eligible to play in the Senior Bowl because he declared early for the draft, but is in town this week networking with NFL teams. Ebron represents the athletic tight end now in vogue, a player with similar traits to receiving tight ends like the New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham and the Ravens' Dennis Pitta.

After three games, Ravens tight end Ed Dickson has more dropped passes than catches. He got booed in the home opener and his playing time in the pass offense might be decreasing. But instead of sulking and making excuses Dickson just keeps working and working. He believes that his time will come eventually. "Things may have gotten off to a rocky start but it is a long season," Dickson said. "As a team, it is working the way we want it to go. We want to keep getting better and I want to get better.

Before the season started, as part of our Ravens season preview for the newspaper, I made 10 predictions for the season that were sure to go wrong. The thought process was that it was a different way to preview the season more than it was a way for me to show our readers how bad I am at making predictions. Looking back now that the season is over, I think I accomplished both with my 10 bold predictions . Some of them were spot on. Some were close but no cigar. And some are now totally laughable.

Let's be honest. For all the fans who think the Ravens should be getting ready to play the Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card round this weekend, it's time to get serious. The Ravens actually deserve a lot of credit for staying in the playoff race until the final quarter of Sunday's game in Cincinnati, and it's easy enough to construct some hindsight scenarios that would have kept their streak of John Harbaugh-era postseason appearances alive. But even a cursory review of what happened over the past season reveals that they actually overachieved in 2013.
