Ravens head coach John Harbaugh took questions from reporters at the NFL combine in Indianapolis on Tuesday.

"He’s going to enjoy himself. If a football gets stuck up there in tree, he’ll be the first one climbing up there to get it. If it’s shirts and skins and he’s on the skins team, his shirt is coming off," he said, making a face and putting his hands up.

"Whatever. That’s just who he is.
