Free-agent defensive end Michael Bankston, whom the Ravens have courted for the past week, appears to be headed back to the Arizona Cardinals after listening to an offer from Baltimore that Bankston's agent said was unacceptable.Gene Burrough, Bankston's agent, said Bankston would probably sign a one-year deal to return to Arizona -- possibly as soon as today -- rather than accept a three-year offer from the Ravens."I'm disappointed in their offer, and I think Michael is as well. It's not the kind of offer that would make Michael leave his team and move to another city," said Burrough, who listened to a proposal from Ravens chief financial officer Pat Moriarty last night.

The agent for free-agent defensive end Michael Bankston sent the Ravens a proposal last night and is hoping to close a deal with Baltimore soon."We had a long discussion, and I think we'll get an answer soon on whether [Bankston] is going to sign, once and for all," said Gene Burrough, Bankston's agent, who is seeking a three-year contract."Does it look promising? I have no idea. They [Ravens] haven't given me any indication yet," Burrough added.Bankston, 6 feet 3, 280 pounds and entering his sixth season, was seventh on the Arizona Cardinals with 89 tackles last year.

Yvonne Bankston thought the train was going faster than usual on her daily light rail commute from Baltimore to BWI. She grew nervous when the train seemed to pick up speed after leaving the Camden Yards station, Bankston said, and recalled looking out the window as it crossed a bridge over the Patapsco's Middle Branch, thinking, "We're going mighty fast over this water." Other passengers described an erratic trip, the train lurching and braking - until 7:15 a.m., when it slammed through a barrier at the airport's new international terminal in a crash that injured nearly two dozen people.

Ravens rookie running back Jay Graham is unlikely to start against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at Memorial Stadium because of an ankle injury.After rushing for 154 yards on 35 carries, Graham was injured in the overtime period of last Sunday's 10-10 tie with the Philadelphia Eagles. He practiced very little yesterday, as veteran Bam Morris took most of the repetitions with the first team.Morris was replaced by Graham last Sunday because of a toe injury and partly because Morris did not participate in all the team's practices last week.
