The Facts: Now 17 months removed from his left knee injury, Beckham indicated Thursday there are "no real limitations" on what he can do in practice. "I don't know percentages; I just feel good," Beckham said. "I feel like I'm going to continue to work to get back to who I know I truly am."
Diehards Line: Beckham, 30, hasn't played in a game since injuring his knee in Super Bowl LVI in February 2022. This led to the second surgery on his left knee in a three-year span. According to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley, as he starts his first training camp since 2021, Beckham is running and cutting without hesitation and showing off the route-running skills that made him a three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. He even caught a deep pass from quarterback Lamar Jackson in the first practice of camp on Wednesday. On returning to the field, Beckham said: "I wanted to be grateful for that moment. It was a long time in rehab. I didn't care what happened [on the field]. It was a blessing to step on the field." The Ravens signed Beckham in April to a one-year, $15 million contract, which is the most given to a free agent wide receiver this year. Baltimore is banking on Beckham and rookie first-round pick Zay Flowers to (hopefully) join Rashod Bateman, coming off a foot injury, help turn around a passing attack that finished 28th in the NFL last season. More weapons, a new coordinator (Todd Monken) and holdover Mark Andrews could help Jackson become more dominant this season.
