Raves wide receiver Zay Flowers: ‘I’m ready to go and be a better person’

OWINGS MILLS — Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers wants to put the off-field issues behind him.

In February, Flowers made headlines when he was accused of a domestic assault in Massachusetts, although no charges were filed. The police did not release details of the investigation.

In April, the NFL announced that Flowers would not face any action from the league.

At the Ravens’ Organized Team Activities, Flowers declined to get into specifics about the incident.

“It was a process that me and my team had to go through,” Flowers said. “I respect the question, but there is really nothing else I can add. I’m just looking forward to the season and getting better, building my reputation and showing the Ravens’ community and the younger generation that I’m here, and I’m ready to go and be a better person, be a good person.”

The Ravens selected Flowers with the 22nd overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft.

That decision paid dividends as Flowers led the team with 77 receptions for 858 yards and five touchdowns. He is expected to make more strides this season as he becomes even more comfortable with quarterback Lamar Jackson and the offense.

He is also ready to balance success on the field with community outreach.

“I’m already in the community,” Flowers said. “I’m always with the kids, and that’s just who I am. I’m not a person that gets into things, so I just do what I do [and] help the community. I have fun with my people, have fun with the kids and just go about what I do, play football, and focus on the future.”
