WESTMINSTER, Md. — Good afternoon from the Best Western in Westminster as the time has finally come for the Ravens to report for training camp and begin preparation for the 2010 season. Rookies, quarterbacks, and select veterans will trickle in throughout the day with their first workout scheduled for Tuesday morning at 8:45 a.m.
We’ll hear from coach John Harbaugh at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon as we hope to get an update on the condition of rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle who is hospitalized after suffering a fall in Austin, Texas on Thursday night. Kindle and fellow second-round pick Terrence Cody remain unsigned, as only six of the 32 players from the second round have inked contracts with their respective teams as of Monday morning.

All updated information will be time-stamped below as we’ll let you know when news breaks and the big names arrive here in Westminster.
1:15 p.m. — We had a chance to catch up with rookie defensive tackle Arthur Jones a little bit ago. Head to the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault at WNST.net to hear his thoughts on his first NFL training camp.
12:50 p.m. — If you’re on the WNST Text Service, you already know the Ravens have come to terms on a three-year deal with defensive tackle Cody, leaving only Kindle unsigned.
“Mount” Cody is on his way to Westminster and will sign his deal with the Ravens and be ready to go for Tuesday morning’s first workout.
12:38 p.m. — I can gladly report that Joe Flacco has arrived safely at the Best Western in Westminster and is ready to go for training camp.
12:00 p.m. — We have a Haruki Nakamura sighting in Westminster.
A healthy Nakamura really boosts the special teams and adds depth to a beat-up secondary to begin training camp.
11:45 a.m. — Ravens fifth-round pick Arthur Jones has checked into the Best Western as the players are beginning to trickle in just in time for lunch.
10:50 a.m. — Just caught up with new quarterback coach—and former head coach of the Washington Redskins—Jim Zorn. He was having some internet trouble here at the Best Western to which I replied my MacBook Pro was running just fine.
Of course, I just jinxed myself for the duration of training camp.
