BALTIMORE (AP) Thousands turned out to Baltimore's Inner Harbor to send the Ravens off to their second Super Bowl.
Retiring linebacker Ray Lewis, coach John Harbaugh and Ed Reed were among the players who spoke to the crowd Monday before the team got on buses and headed to the airport to fly to New Orleans for Sunday's game. The Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers.
Lewis told the crowd the team loves them and the Ravens were going to New Orleans for nothing else but to bring back another Super Bowl ring to Baltimore, where it belongs.
Harbaugh told the crowd that the Ravens have the best fans in the world and he couldn't wait to see a wall of purple-clad fans down in New Orleans.
You don't have to be a chick to enjoy watching the Bachelorette.
Several Ravens' players proved this when they came together at tight end Dennis Pitta's house Monday night to have a very manly Bachelorette series premiere watch party. Players included kicker Justin Tucker and QB Joe Flacco.
Justin Tucker wasn't too happy though with Pitta's screen size.
This wasn't the first time the guys got together to watch the Bachelorette . Last June during JoJo Fletcher's season, the squad got together to watch an episode where the Bachelorette and her suitors visited their arch rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Will the guys spend the off-season continuing to watch who gets the final rose?
MORE RAVENS:FORMER RAVENS SAFETY ARRESTED ON GRAND THEFT AND BATTERY CHARGES
Ex-Ravens safety Matt Elam was arrested for the second time in less than three months after an altercation with his girlfriend at her home in Delray Beach, Fla.
Police say Elam was arrested on grand theft and domestic battery charges after a fight broke out between the two around 4 a.m. Monday.
The former Florida Gators star — who was selected by the Ravens with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, came to the residence to retrieve his car, but fled on foot with his girlfriend's cell phone after she wouldn't give him any money, according to TMZ, which first broke the story.
Elam could face up to five years in prison under Florida law which lists grand theft of more than $300 a third degree felony, according to USA Today.
The 25-year-old was arrested in February for possession over 120 grams of marijuana and 3 grams of oxycodone, after which the Ravens announced their plans for the future did not include Elam.
Elam is currently being held on a $4,500 bond at the Palm Beach County jail.
