The scene at the Ravens’ afternoon practice was somewhat like a homecoming.

Veterans players that weren’t asked to participate in the first two days of training camp are supposed to report tonight, but some decided to arrive early.

And while the rookies, quarterbacks and selected vets were practicing at McDaniel College, many of those early birds came out to the field.

Defensive tackle Justin Bannan got a big hug from Kelly Gregg and Adam Terry. Safeties Ed Reed and Haruki Nakamura talked with head coach John Harbaugh. Wideout Marcus Smith, linebacker Jarret Johnson and tight end Todd Heap briefly watched from the sideline.

In addition, fullback Le’Ron McClain sat with general manager Ozzie Newsome on a bench near the locker room entrance. Here’s betting the Alabama alumns were sharing Crimson Tide news.

I’m wrapping up the blog for today. More to come on Thursday from Westminster.
