In about a month from now the Baltimore Ravens will convene at their training facility in Owings Mills, Md., for training camp. Until then, though, it is more or less vacation time for every player on the Ravens roster.
Even though there's not much news in the NFL this time of the year, it is nonetheless an important time for NFL players. The start of training camp for the Ravens on July 25 will mark the end of the offseason and the beginning to the 2012 season. It is especially a crucial time for rookies and new free-agent acquisitions that will be spending their first season with the purple and black.
With the end of the long NFL offseason finally in sight, now is a great time to look at which players impressed during the minicamps and optional offseason workouts. Working out extra hard during the offseason can often lead to improvement during the following season. Not only does it get the players in the good graces of their coaches, but it also puts them in a football playing mindset that is not gained from sitting on the couch.
