Before we talk about the mascots of Baltimore Ravens, let’s first introduce the subject by looking at the team itself.
Baltimore Ravens is a professional American football team based in Baltimore and it is owned by one of the richest and wealthiest people in America, Steve Bisciotti.
As a member of the American Football Conference North division, Baltimore Ravens compete in the American National Football League and are currently in their 26th season.

Who Are Baltimore Ravens Mascots?
Poe is the mascot of Baltimore Ravens. He was named after the writer and Baltimore Maryland resident, Edgar, Allan Poe.
Poe was one of the three costumed, when originally unveiled, all Ravens brother names “Edgar,” “Allan,” and “Poe.”
Edgar represents the “backfield” according to the back story, Edgar was tall and broad-shouldered, but they are not routinely not staged on the scrimmage.
This represented the linebacker, defensive back, fullback, quarterback, etc. Edgar was decidedly proud, if not arrogant, and was the leader of the trio.
Allan was particularly shorter and thinner than Edgar and Poe, yet much faster. He represented the receivers and running back.
Allan was a very excitable bird who always had energy to spare.
Poe was the last to hatch. Poe is short and stout representing the linemen of the game. He is a slow, lazy, yet lovable mascot. Poe routinely joins tailgate parties in his never-ending search for the perfect cheeseburger.
After the 2008 season ended, Edgar and Allan were retired, leaving Poe as the sole mascot of the Baltimore Ravens. Now Poe is joined by “Rise,” and “Conquer” since 2009.
