Welcome to Episode 48 of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with site owner Jake McDonnell, editor Nolan McGraw, and author Ian Schultz.
There was a lot to talk about this week and with the NFL draft looming we decided to split things up. Episode 48 will cover all the latest Ravens, Capitals, and Orioles news but we will be saving our draft talk for a special bonus episode that will come out on Sunday.
Ravens fans got some great pre-draft news on Wednesday morning when it was reported that Baltimore will give Justin Tucker a four-year contract extension. The new deal keeps Tucker in Baltimore through 2023.
On Thursday afternoon the Baltimore Ravens scheduled an introductory press conference for both Earl Thomas and Mark Ingram on Friday morning. Before we heard from the two newest Ravens, John Harbaugh and special teams coordinator/assistant head coach Jerry Rosburg took the podium to announce Rosburg’s retirement after 11 years on Baltimore’s coaching staff.
