Brian Baldinger Confident in Ravens’ Offense, O-Line Changes, and More

NFL Networks’ Brian Baldinger joined Glenn Clark Radio to speak all issues Ravens, from the addition of Henry to their offensive line motion, and extra. The recurring theme from Baldinger was assurance, as Baldinger expressed confidence in every little thing the Ravens have completed this offseason.

On how dynamic the backfield mixture of Jackson/Henry will be.

“It may very well be actually dynamic. Lamar’s by no means performed with a again like Henry and Derrick Henry’s by no means performed with a quarterback like Lamar,” Baldinger mentioned. “And then should you add in the entire wrinkles that Todd Monken provides to this run recreation that he does, which principally – your protection is not allowed to be proper. And in the event that they execute, what they’re able to is admittedly one thing particular. We know they will run it greater than they throw it and should you get the lead within the fourth quarter, it is going to be very tough to cease it.”

On the Ravens’ offensive line modifications and confidence in such an enormous transition in a single yr.

“Honestly, they exchange offensive linemen the way in which Walmart shares cabinets,” Baldinger mentioned. “Andrew Vorhees was drafted final yr within the seventh spherical coming off an ACL [injury]. He’s going to step in. … Ben Cleveland’s there, Roger Rosengarten was drafted to switch Morgan Moses, perhaps [Daniel] Faalele is there, perhaps Rosengarten beats him out. … I believe when your heart is powerful, he makes everybody higher. … I believe they will be in fairly good condition. Good offensive line coach, they know easy methods to coach that place, they do issues within the run recreation nobody else does, they’re nonetheless going to be tough to cease. I believe they will be fairly good.”

On the Ravens’ huge receiver depth and the emergence of Isaiah Likely.

“I believe they’re going to be in plenty of two tight finish units for certain,” Baldinger mentioned. “Isaiah actually stepped up. That was obvious to everyone. I believe that can proceed. But Zay Flowers was their No. 1 receiver. They have not had a No. 1 huge receiver in an extended, very long time. He stepped into that position and he flourished. And I believe usually gamers’ greatest jumps [occur] throughout their first and second yr. And I believe Zay will try this. Rashod Bateman – they received lots. They received lots to work with, and we’ll see what Tez does. … But there isn’t any query, the 2 tight finish units are going to be an enormous a part of this offense.”
