Jarret Johnson has pretty big feet, so he's not worried about filling the shoes of All-Pro linebacker Adalius Thomas as the only new defensive starter this season for the Ravens. If anything, Johnson has already had practice at succeeding an established star.

- New England Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas acknowledges without hesitation that this has been the most trying season of his 10-year career, marred by a public run-in with coach Bill Belichick and his least productive statistics since he was a rookie. But when presented with a hypothetical mulligan regarding his 2007 free agency choice as his current team prepares to face his former squad in the Ravens, he says he wouldn't change a thing. "I'm fine with how it turned out," Thomas said.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Walking onto the field on which he will play in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Adalius Thomas looked lost yesterday at the start of the New England Patriots' media day. After a couple of minutes, Thomas asked someone for the location of his podium. The answer: He wasn't assigned one.

Bart Scott is no longer getting attention for the wrong reasons. Rare are the emotional outbursts that earned the Ravens linebacker penalty flags and additional scrutiny from NFL officials. Nearly as infrequent are the vitriolic comments that garnered him scorn from media pundits and his opponents. An additional topic that has not surfaced with much regularity is the possibility that tomorrow's AFC wild-card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins could be Scott's last as a Raven. But Scott, who is only 28 years old, isn't worried.

According to early reports, negotiations between the Ravens and Pro Bowl defensive end-outside linebacker Adalius Thomas have not gone well and the two sides are far apart as far as the total value of any package. The Ravens have mentioned the franchise tag to Thomas as a very possible alternative. Also, despite some reports, Thomas might not draw as much interest as some have indicated if he hits the open market. Thomas has to play for a team with a certain style. He can't put his hand in the dirt and become a full-time defensive end, and he can't play strong-side linebacker full time, taking on tight ends.

Ravens linebacker Adalius Thomas suffered an apparent injury to his right leg late in this morning's practice in Owings Mills. It came during 11-on-11 drills on a carry by running back Chester Taylor. Thomas lay on the field for several minutes and was administered to by trainers before limping off the field on his own power. The extent of the injury is not yet known. The Ravens can ill afford another injury at outside linebacker after losing rookie Dan Cody last week. Practice was moved this morning from Westminster to the indoor facility in Owings Mills because of rain.

The Ravens are not expected to use the franchise tag on All-Pro linebacker Adalius Thomas, although the team will wait until today before making a final decision. The sides are talking about a long-term contract for Thomas, and the Ravens could be using the threat of the tag to get a deal done. The deadline to use the tag is today. By using the tag for 2007, the Ravens can keep Thomas from becoming a free agent by paying him $7.2 million, which is the average of the five highest-paid linebackers in the league.

Let's see, if Baltimore makes it to the NFL playoffs, former Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer, now with the 49ers, can rally the team with some signature cheer like "Cowboy up." San Francisco fans surely won't mind. Or maybe former Ravens linebacker Adalius Thomas will happily leave New England for a day. It's not like Patriots coach Bill Belichick is competitive or anything - maybe Mr. Thomas can videotape it. Now the question is who from the Orioles should be tapped to throw out tonight's first pitch for Game 1 of the World Series between the Rockies and Red Sox. Ex-Sox player Kevin "Cowboy up" Millar had the honor in the deciding Game 7 of the American League Championship Series on Sunday, and that seemed to do wonders for the Orioles' division rivals.

Through their first five games, the Cleveland Browns' pass rush mustered nine sacks. Then came Oct. 21, when the Browns feasted on a makeshift offensive line and got to Elvis Grbac, who left in the third quarter with bruised ribs, and Randall Cunningham seven times. A season high both for the Browns' defense and the Ravens' offense, it's the one statistic that best explains Cleveland's 24-14 win over Baltimore. "One time they [the Browns] rushed three guys, we had six blocking and they sacked the quarterback," tight end Shannon Sharpe said.

Thumbs up: The Ra- vens' defense. It allowed only 151 yards of total offense and didn't surrender a drive over 33 yards. The Ravens' defense has allowed only one touchdown in five playoff games. Thumbs down: Return specialist Jermaine Lewis. His fumble on the opening kickoff was the Ravens' only turnover and kept the team from registering a shutout. He averaged 1.5 yards on two punt returns and 11 yards on two kickoff returns. Stat of game: 37:54. The dominating time of possession by the Ravens.

Adalius Thomas acknowledges that Monday night's game against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium might be different from the first 11 he has played this season for the New England Patriots. There's a good chance that Thomas hasn't experienced anything like it on the road in his eight-year NFL career. "You know the people there, you know the guys, you're familiar with where you're going," Thomas said yesterday. "I was there for seven years. You know the back way to get in. Instead of a road trip, it will be like a home game on the road."

1. Will the running game improve with Willis McGahee? The belief is yes, although the Ravens didn't convince anyone in the preseason. McGahee won't be as dominating a running back as Jamal Lewis was at his peak, but McGahee is better than Lewis at this point in their careers. McGahee hits the edge quicker and runs with deceptive power inside. But he has yet to prove that after gaining 47 yards on 18 carries in the preseason, a 2.6-yard average. 2. Has the defense adjusted to life without Adalius Thomas?

After hearing how linebacker Adalius Thomas and offensive tackle Tony Pashos will find big-money contracts elsewhere, you have to wonder which players are the Ravens expecting to sign? That's the question being asked by linebacker-defensive end Jarret Johnson and the other Ravens who became unrestricted free agents today. The Ravens have had preliminary talks with all 11 of their free agents, but like they have done in the past, they will allow them to test the market. Although there is a chance that the Ravens could sign one player today, this has the makings of an unusually slow start of free agency, which creates an uncertain future for their free agents.

RAVENS LINEBACKER ADALIUS THOMAS VS. BROWNS TIGHT END KELLEN WINSLOW George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up a critical matchup against the Browns: The players Thomas has become the Ravens' most versatile player, moving from linebacker to safety to lineman in a single game. In two games this season, he has 13 tackles, two sacks (one for a safety) and an interception. A sixth-round pick in 2000, Thomas became a full-time starter in 2002 as a defensive end. He moved to linebacker in 2003, when he made the Pro Bowl as a special teams player.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome didn't sound optimistic yesterday that All-Pro linebacker Adalius Thomas would return to the team next season. Thomas, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent later this week, could have been kept out of the free-agent market with a franchise tag, but that would have cost the Ravens a one-year, $7.2 million contract (which is the average of the five highest-paid linebackers in the NFL). But by Thursday's deadline, the Ravens declined to make the move.
