The Baltimore Ravens arrive today at NovaCare in South Philly for a pair of joint practices before Thursday night’s exo at the Linc.
Linebacker Nigel Bradham took the next step in his recovery yesterday, taking part in 7-on-7 action for the first time. Bradham appeared to get his hand on the football on the very first play, knocking a pass down intended for a receiver on a crossing route.
Josh McCown also got his first reps with the team in this drill, completing a couple of short passes and overall looking like a veteran quarterback working on the timing with new receivers. He hit J.J. Arcega-Whiteside on a short crossing route in stride, allowing the rookie to get yards after the catch. McCown later tried to perfectly time a back-shoulder throw to Mack Hollins, but the throw was too early.
Carson Wentz had a couple of really impressive touch throws to start the next period. First, he hit Nelson Agholor in stride on a crossing route over a trailing defender towards the right side of the field. The accuracy on the pass allowed Agholor to gain yards after the catch. A few plays later, Wentz perfectly placed the ball for Adams on a wheel route down the right sideline for a big play. On the next snap, Wentz hit DeSean Jackson in stride on another wheel route on the opposite side of the field, but he bobbled it and it bounced into the hands of safety Deiondre’ Hall for an interception.
