They had a promising start with an 8-3 record, and Jackson was playing at an MVP level.
However, injuries to their key players, including the 2019 league MVP, caused them to close their campaign with a six-game losing streak.
Worst yet, they were eliminated from playoff contention with an 8-9 record.
That’s why the Ravens are raring to bounce back this season and re-establish their identity as one of the AFC’s top contenders.
It’s been a while since Baltimore’s players had any football-related activity.
For that reason, All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey summarizes how the Ravens players feel.

The video above shows an elated Humphrey before entering the team’s facility.
Flashing his wide smile, all he could utter was, “Guys, good to see you guys.”
Like many Ravens players, Humphrey’s season ended abruptly due to a Week 13 pectoral muscle injury.
He looks great in the video, but it will take time before he returns to game shape.
Once he regains form, the Baltimore defense will re-gain its bite, especially in shutting down the opponent’s passing game.
Humphrey is just one of the key players the Ravens need to survive a tough AFC North against the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Cincinnati Bengals.
NFL Offseason Workout Programs Almost In Full Swing

Therefore, the Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, and New York Giants started their program April 4.
Tomorrow, six more teams will start their offseason workouts.
