Like two people with varying stories of the same fender-bender, Ravens coach Brian Billick and Miami cornerback Sam Madison relayed vastly different versions of a conversation that took place during the Dolphins' 26-7 win Sunday. Madison said after the game that Billick taunted him with his Super Bowl ring, saying that will be the closest Madison will ever come to one. Billick responded yesterday by saying he did not have on his Super Bowl ring and made no such taunt. "That one caught me a little off guard," Billick said.

Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith admits that he's unsure how the joint practices with the San Francisco 49ers, which will take play from Saturday to Monday at the Under Armour Performance Center, will work out. But he's knows what he could do to make them a little more intense. “I might wear my Super Bowl ring out to practice,” Smith joked. “Hopefully, Coach [John] Harbaugh's brother isn't mad at me for that call or non-call, whatever you want to call it.” Smith, of course, is referring to the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

ESPN.com recently predicted which 50 active players are most likely to make the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The names are listed according to probability. For instance, Brett Favre is No. 1, and Minnesota Vikings rookie running back Adrian Peterson is No. 50. Several Ravens made the list, including Ray Lewis at No. 5. About Lewis, the Web site said: "Lewis will be remembered as the dominant force on one of the most dominant defenses in NFL history: the 2000 Ravens defense which allowed the fewest points over a 16-game season.

Former Ravens running back Damien Berry's Super Bowl XLVII ring has been sold for $43,008, according to Goldin Auctions. A former reserve player from the University of Miami who spent the 2012 season on injured reserve, Berry sold his ring and it was put up for consignment through a third party. Berry initially disputed that he had sold the ring before Goldin Auctions provided proof of a sales agreement and check made out to the former NFL player. Berry is no longer disputing the sale.

ASHBURN, Va. - Jessie Armstead should be happier. The Washington Redskins linebacker is putting the finishing touches on one of his best seasons since he entered the NFL in 1993. Armstead is fourth on the team in tackles with 88 and is tied with fellow linebacker LaVar Arrington for the team lead in tackles for a loss with three. And at 33, Armstead has registered a team-high 6.5 sacks - 1.5 more than Arrington and 2.5 more than NFL career sack leader Bruce Smith. Yet, the Redskins are 5-9 and will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year.

Assuming the winning Super Bowl team's starting quarterback is the one who guides it to victory Sunday night, either the Arizona Cardinals' Kurt Warner or the Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger becomes a slam-dunk for eventual coronation as a Hall of Famer. Hall of Fame voting has always smiled on Super Bowl victory. While individual accomplishments are obviously considered, winning the big game is crucial. Consider how many 1970s-era Steelers are there (10, including coach Chuck Noll)

You've dealt with questions about your size (5 feet 8, 186 pounds) throughout your NFL career. Did that ever get irritating? It's part of the game, especially when you don't fit the mold or you're not the prototypical guy. You hear that your whole career. I've been hearing it since I was in high school. It's really nothing new. It doesn't necessarily drive me. It's not the only thing that drives me, but it definitely helps knowing that people are doubting you. You've just got to go out there and approach the game however you need to to make yourself successful, and that's what I try to do. Current and former University of Wisconsin defensive backs Chris Maragos, Shane Carter and Ben Strickland have said you are a role model and inspiration for them.

Before the season began, did you ever think you would be leading the team in touchdowns? No. That was all the way in the back of my mind, but it's a blessing. I'm just trying to contribute as a good tailback. Whatever I can do to help the team. How does it feel to be one of the most sought-after players in fantasy football? I saw it when I was in the cold tub one morning. They were talking about it on TV, saying that I'm a good pick[up]. But I don't really understand the fantasy league thing.

Is there any difference in your comfort level this season compared with last year? Not really. There's a little more stuff, but not much. It's pretty much like last year. In Rex Ryan's defense, the responsibilities are always going to change, but it's pretty much the same stuff with the same coverage stuff. Maybe I'm blitzing from different positions, but it's about the same. What does it mean to you that those in the media have called you the most improved player among the Ravens? I don't really look for the media's approval, but I do feel like I have played better this year than I was playing last year.

Add a Super Bowl ring to the list of things floating in the Chesapeake Bay. The ring belongs to a receptionist for the Ravens named Toni Lekas -- everyone involved with a winning team gets a ring, not just the players.  The person who lost the ring is her boyfriend, Chuck Lykes. Florists, take note of his name, because Lykes will likely be sending Lekas a lot of bouquets to make up for this one. Lykes was wearing the ring at a party on a boat in Middle River in August after Lekas had gone home, according to The Caw blog on baltimoreravens.com.

Gerry Sandusky takes you to the third floor of his northern Baltimore County home and points to a book shelf. "There it is," he says. Huh? That's where he keeps his Ravens Super Bowl ring? Where's the glass display case with the spotlight shining on it? And the velvet ropes to keep the riff-raff at arm's length? And maybe a glowering security goon standing by so no one tries any funny business? I have made this trip to see what Sandusky, the long-time WBAL-TV sports director and Ravens broadcaster, plans to do with his Super Bowl ring.

Congratulations again to the Ravens for their Super Bowl victory, and I'm sure everyone is real proud, but do they really have to reward these guys with big, ugly "man rings" ("Ravens get their Super Bowl rings at private ceremony tonight," June 7). Were these things designed in a garage in New Jersey? I mean, c'mon, a ring on a man makes him look about as "classy" as Donald Trump or John Gotti. These jumbo sized rings they're giving out to our players are so hideously gaudy even Liberace would have been embarrassed to war one. I wonder, do they get matching floor length, sequin covered fur coats to go with those tacky rings?

The small but heavy package arrived in Baton Rouge on Tuesday and was delivered around lunchtime. Cam Cameron ripped open the package and gazed at his championship ring from Super Bowl XLVII, the one the Ravens went on to win after relieving him of his duties in December. The dazzling ring weighed 380 grams, was encrusted with 243 round-cut diamonds and crafted in 10-karat white gold with yellow highlights. Without a hint of resentment, the team's former offensive coordinator who was at times the most-scrutinized man in the Baltimore area, said he appreciated the gesture from the Ravens and their owner, Steve Bisciotti.

Tony Siragusa isn't the prettiest of men. The former Baltimore Raven played the thankless role of a 6-foot-3, 330-pound steel drum, crashing the line over and over, so teammates could sack the quarterback - and reap the glory. But "Goose" was a member of the team that won Super Bowl XXXV, and the gregarious giant's profile has grown exponentially since that January day in 2001. He's a Fox-TV sideline reporter, host of a home improvement show and has been cast in "The Sopranos" and the film "25th Hour.

In the latest video sweeping this Ravens-obsessed city, Baltimore women channel Beyonce with a Super Bowl spin on her famous "Single Ladies" video. The women, in leotards and heels, brave the 20-degree weather from earlier this week to dance outside M&T Bank Stadium and at the Inner Harbor. It makes us shiver just watching them. They sing that they're ready to put a Super Bowl ring on it. That and a coat. Maybe some mittens. Filmmaker Paul Hutson and Mike Maiatico edited the faithful-to-Beyonce video with photography by Will Cocks.

It was one of those sounds crowds love to hear: when the running back and the linebacker collide, helmet to helmet, power against power. Cracks like those, football fans say, are sweeter than any crack of the baseball bat. The hit between the Washington Redskins' John Riggins and the New York Giants' Harry Carson not only sent a crack reverberating through the air at RFK Stadium that Sunday afternoon, but it also left Carson lumbering back to the huddle...

LEESBURG, Va. - Ten minutes into his speech to the newest crop of NFL rookies, Brian Billick flashed his Super Bowl ring. It was a quick and effective reminder to the rookies that they should be playing for a title and not, Billick said, for the money. He then gave the players a few hints on how they could best help get their teams to the Super Bowl at the NFL's Rookie Symposium yesterday at Lansdowne Conference Center. "You want one of these," said Billick, pointing at the Super Bowl ring on his finger.

The San Francisco 49ers' Randy Moss said Tuesday that he is the best wide receiver to ever play in the National Football League. On Sunday night, he might not even be the best receiver in the game, but he could have the biggest impact. No offense to Moss, he is probably the second best receiver in history. Statistically, only Jerry Rice is better when it comes to receiving touchdowns (197 to 156) and Moss' 15,292 receiving yards are third behind Rice's 22,895 and Terrell Owens' 15,934.

Who doesn't need more bling these days? And what better way to impress your friends than flashing a genuine, diamond-studded Ravens Super Bowl XXXV ring? Right now, it can be yours for a little more than $8,000. OK, maybe that's not exactly a steal. But that's the current bidding price at Lelands.com, where the ring is being auctioned. Here's the back-story, though: the ring doesn't belong to a former player. The name “Dickson” is inscribed on it. But it doesn't belong to current tight end Ed Dickson, who was still a kid when the Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2001.
