TEMPE, Ariz. -- Tight end Todd Heap spent his first 10 NFL seasons with the Ravens, so he has looked forward to returning to Baltimore this weekend since signing with the Cardinals last summer.
The trip would be even better if Heap can play, something he hasn't done since suffering a hamstring injury three weeks ago.
“I'm taking it day to day right now,” he said. “I'm hoping I'll be ready.”
Heap was surprised when the Ravens released him in July. The Ravens needed the cap space ($4.6.million) and they had drafted two tight ends, Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson, the year before.
“It's something that hit me out of left field. I didn't see it coming,” Heap said.
