Camp Update

Ravens & Nfl

August 02, 2006|By MIKE PRESTON


It goes to cornerback Chris McAlister, who dropped a potential interception when quarterback Steve McNair overthrew receiver Devard Darling on a long pass attempt. McAlister then dropped to the ground and did 10 pushups. He'll either develop better hands or become the strongest player on the team by the end of the season.


Former Pro Bowl defensive end Michael McCrary worked with defensive linemen yesterday. It's a good move by the Ravens because McCrary was one of the best pass rushers in the league when he played, and the Ravens got little pressure from their linemen a year ago.

NO. 2 OR NO. 3?

Mike Anderson was brought in to back up starting running back Jamal Lewis, but don't count out fourth-year player Musa Smith as the No. 2. Smith has played well, showing good vision and strong cuts. The Ravens have strong depth at the position.


If you want to watch two pros at work, keep your eyes focused on middle linebacker Ray Lewis and defensive tackle Kelly Gregg. They run out every play, including pursuit to the opposite side of the field. There doesn't seem to be a problem with Lewis' groin/hamstring when he is sprinting at full speed.


"If I had my druthers, we'd be playing in the NFC West."
