‘A great sat­is­fac­tion’

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Ben­jamin Wat­son, 34, has spent the past 12 months re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing from an Achilles ten­don in­jury so he can re­turn to the field. Pre­sea­son Satur­day, 7 p.m. TV: Chs. 11, 7 Ra­dio: 97.9 FM, 1090 AM

“It was a vic­tory for all of us,” Wat­son said.

Now that he’s put that mile­stone past him, Wat­son will turn his at­ten­tion to the more fa­mil­iar busi­ness of lead­ing the Ravens tight end corps, the mis­sion he thought he signed up for be­fore last sea­son.

“He’s the OG in the room,” said the team’s new­est tight end, Larry Don­nell. “But he still plays like he’s a young guy. So it’s been awe­some to be around him.”

Even six months ago, it wasn’t clear what role the vet­eran might play for the 2017 Ravens. Den­nis Pitta was com­ing off an en­cour­ag­ing come­back year. Crock­ett Gill­more, Nick Boyle and Maxx Wil­liams
