ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In Sunday's win against the Indianapolis Colts, the emotion of the Baltimore Ravens was evident.
The club welcomed back its leader, linebacker Ray Lewis, who announced earlier in the week that he will retire at the end of the season.
That emotion helped lead the club to a victory in the Wild Card Round, setting up a rematch with the Broncos this Saturday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
"Of course they’re going to be amped up, getting Ray Lewis back, getting some guys healthy," linebacker
“They play with a lot of confidence, but so do we," Tamme said. "So we’ll take it out there Saturday and see what we can do.”
BAILEY'S FUNDAMENTALS KEY
The team honors 26 players for using proper form and technique that young players can emulate.
“Just the little stuff -- coming out of my breaks fast, learning how to press," Harris said. "I definitely pride myself on having great technique. That’s really what has brought me pretty far. Having great technique and just watching Champ and learning from him has definitely helped me.”
“I don’t even have to talk to him much -- sometimes, we give a little head nod," Adams said. "The communication back there is unbelievable. We know each other. We’re working off each other. We’re doing different things. It goes a long way having his experience back there, and it helps."
TWO SIGNED TO FUTURE CONTRACTS
On Monday, the Broncos welcomed back a familiar face.
Robinson spent the 2012 preseason with the team, catching four passes for 53 yards in four games. The rookie spent most of the regular season on the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad.
The team also signed guard Justin Boren to a future contract. Boren is a first-year player who spent the past two seasons between the Detroit Lions' and Baltimore Ravens' practice squads.
Boren was originally signed as a college free agent by the Ravens in 2011.
