While the Ravens have been praised by many for their offensive additions, the fact that quarterback Joe Flacco has never thrown to the likes of Anquan Boldin and Co. at game speed could be a cause for concern.

But Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron believes that won’t be a problem.

If anything, a strong offseason of collaboration between Flacco, Boldin, Donte’ Stallworth and rookie tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta give the Ravens’ passing attack a head start going into training camp.

“Probably the most impressive thing Joe was able to do was adapt to Anquan, Donte’ and the two rookie tight ends as quickly as he did,” Cameron said. “You would have felt those four guys had been around each other for at least a couple of years, and they came right off the street.

“That always tells you something about a guy.”

The “guy” is Flacco, who has impressed coaches in his third year under Cameron.

And to continue developing with his new weapons, Flacco has plans to meet with the entire group on several occasions before camp begins in late July for extra throwing sessions.

Boldin, who was prolific playing with quarterback Kurt Warner in Arizona before coming to Baltimore, thinks such action is critical for a functioning pass game.

“Me and Kurt were together for the past three years and built a relationship of trust,” Boldin said. “There were times where I would be on the field and we would see the same thing. We would be on the same page without even communicating. I want to get on that level with Joe.”
