In what has become the signature play of this year's Baltimore Ravens training camp, quarterback Joe Flacco flung a tight spiral 30 yards downfield and wide receiver John Brown made a diving catch.
The deep pass -- which has been rare in Baltimore's offense in recent years—suddenly has become routine. Flacco is enjoying perhaps the best training camp of his 11-year career, and Brown is producing what might be the best summer any Ravens wide receiver has ever had.
As the story said, the big-play connection has been the biggest missing element to the Ravens' offense. The piece went on to say that over the past five seasons, Flacco is the worst-rated, deep-ball QB, but the trend could reverse if camp is any indication.
