OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Coach John Harbaugh was "very pleased" with Baltimore's minicamp and the Super Bowl champion won't unite as a team again until late July.
The Ravens finished their three-day mandatory offseason session on Thursday. Afterward, Harbaugh said, "I was very pleased with the effort, very pleased with what we accomplished. I think we're in a good place as a football team."
Baltimore lost nine significant contributors from last season's team, most notably Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Anquan Boldin and Matt Birk. They've been replaced by a host of newcomers — including Elvis Dumervil, Chris Canty, Marcus Spears and Michael Huff.
For that reason, it seems as if the Ravens are starting over.
Tackle Bryant McKinnie says, "The chemistry kind of has to grow with all the new people and everything."
