Ravens

New Ravens WR Willie Snead says he’s looking forward to a “fresh start” in Baltimore after a disappointing 2017 season that was impacted by a suspension and a hamstring injury.

“By the time I was in some kind of game shape, it was like Week 9 and we were on that roll, [winning eight] games in a row,” Snead said, via the Baltimore Sun. “It’s just hard to get back into the flow of things when Alvin Kamara is coming into his [own], Michael Thomas is making plays and Ted Ginn. They had their offense at that point. As a player that was in the offense and in the scheme heavily over the past two years, that was frustrating.

Steelers

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger admitted that he was “caught off guard” by the team’s decision to trade WR Martavis Bryant to the Raiders during the draft.

“When I heard about Martavis, I was like ‘Oh, man.’ I really enjoyed playing with Martavis,” Roethlisberger said, via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I think he was a great weapon, he helped our offense, did some great things by attracting attention and making plays for us. I was kind of caught off guard, but teams have reasons for doing things. I think part of it was him expressing trade things that we all heard so much about. I think he’s probably pretty happy. For him and his family, if you’re in a good happy place, then good for him.”
