The Super Bowl champs could be coming to Barbados. Bajan-born offensive lineman Ramon Harewood appears likely to bring home some of his Baltimore Ravens teammates for a four-day American football camp in April once negotiations are finalized with the Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA). News of the proposed plan first broke in the international media, where it was rumoured that Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice, right tackle Michael Oher (of the movie The Blind Side), cornerback Ladarius Webb and receivers Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith would also be conducting the camp for kids. BTA’s vice-president of marketing in the United States, Campbell Rudder, confirmed that his organization was in the process of negotiating with Harewood but denied previous reports that everything was finalized. “We were already in discussions with Ramon about having him come here to conduct a camp in April before he played in the Super Bowl and it makes it that much better that he went on to win it,” Rudder said in a telephone interview with NATIONSPORT.
