Blogger Blitz: No-shows at Ravens camp
June, 7, 2012

In their final week of voluntary workouts for the Baltimore Ravens, there were 19 players who weren't present during the only practice open to the media.
I understand the definition of voluntary, but having one-fifth of your roster not on the field has to be disappointing to a team that fell one pass short of getting to the Super Bowl. While some absences are due to injuries, star players like linebacker Ray Lewis, safety Ed Reed and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata have skipped all of the offseason practices. Next week is Baltimore's mandatory minicamp.
In the blogger blitz video, I explain why one Raven should have been here for these workouts, voluntary or not.
