Reducing concession prices is the latest example of the Ravens making a concerted effort to connect more with fans this offseason after an increasing number of no-shows toward the end of last year. Over the past few months, the Ravens allowed fans to ask questions at a media pre-draft press conference; held a Q&A with fans at the team facility with owner Steve Bisciotti, coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome; and had team president Dick Cass meet and talk to fan clubs.

On the Ravens' reduction of concession prices, owner Steve Bisciotti said in February that he thought about doing this but he pointed out that the team would need to renegotiate his contract with his vendor. This is what Bisciotti said three months ago: "It's something I would really like to take a hard look at, and at least, come up with select items that we can do. If it means us … I can't make Aramark do that with me, but I can make them go along as long as it's my share of the profits that I'm waving. Yeah, I'd like to take a look at that. I think we could probably do that.”

Jordan Lasley was the most impressive wide receiver of Ravens rookie minicamp. Lasley, a fifth-round pick out of UCLA, used his speed to get separation, ran good routes and made catch after catch. One knock has been his hands. But Lasley didn't let one pass hit the ground Saturday. "He flashed athleticism – smooth, quick, made a couple catches out there, loves to play, loves to practice, boisterous kind of guy," coach John Harbaugh said. "He was fun to be around."
