For Corey Harris, there are no idle moments on the practice field this summer. If the Ravens' nine-year veteran isn't running plays as the backup strong safety, he's running plays as a quasi-linebacker. If he isn't lined up in the slot covering a fourth wide receiver, he's going downfield on punt coverage, or returning kickoffs. "My fear with Corey is that we run him into the ground," said defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis, "because he's always doing everything." Harris wants to turn his versatility into something more than a novelty act this season, though.

A day after failing to repeat, the Ravens must begin their reconstruction. Team officials confirmed the Ravens will pick up the $6 million signing option for maligned quarterback Elvis Grbac in March, but hinted the rest of the team could undergo a drastic transformation. The Ravens are an imposing $20.5 million over the projected $72 million salary cap, with only 30 players signed for the 53-man roster. Just 51 weeks after hoisting up the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the Ravens could lose as many as six starters on their dominating defense while trying to retool a stagnant offense.

Thumbs up: Cornerback Alvin Porter had an impressive diving interception in full-team drills. A few plays later, Porter nearly came up with another. Thumbs down: No need. Brian Billick ended practice almost a half-hour early, and praised the tempo and intensity of his team, which does look ready for a game after having few detectable mistakes. Trainer's room: Defensive tackle Tony Siragusa (knee) did not practice. Safeties Pete Destefano (ankle) and Corey Harris (family emergency) missed practice.

Super Bowl XXXV found its place in history in the third quarter. Despite minimal production from the offenses, the quarter featured 21 points in a span of 36 seconds this quarter. The touchdowns were scored on an interception return by Ravens cornerback Duane Starks, then on consecutive kickoffs by the Giants and Ravens. It was the first time that a Super Bowl had back-to-back kickoffs returned for touchdowns. The main storyline continued to be the Ravens' defense, which surrendered only 14 yards this quarter and started the scoring barrage.

The Ravens' road to next season's Super Bowl will have a $20 million speed bump in the way. The Ravens have reportedly committed $92.5 million to their 2002 salary cap, a figure that needs to be slashed to the projected ceiling of $72 million by March 1. Although their cap situation is among the league's three worst with Tennessee and Jacksonville, the defending Super Bowl champions stressed that they can keep the core of their team intact for another title...

Thumbs up: The loudest cheer in the morning came when Elvis Grbac connected deep with Brandon Stokley. What the fans didn't see was rookie defensive end Corey Callens pulling up after a speed rush and standing next to Grbac. Callens corralled Jason Brookins on a run, then batted down a Randall Cunningham pass and scuffled with Orlando Bobo. He will most likely be cut, but Callens is going down fighting. Thumbs down: Cunningham got more reps than Chris Redman, whose status as the No. 2 quarterback looks wobbly.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Corey Harris started his first game in two seasons for the Ravens yesterday. If he seemed right at home, it's because he was. Harris played his college football here. He was a good wide receiver and running back on some bad Vanderbilt teams, and is a local community leader and businessman. When he visited the nightclub here that he holds a stake in Saturday night, he found a packed house of 250, "all in purple and gold." Yesterday, he gave the Ravens fans who ventured to Adelphia Coliseum plenty to cheer about.

Corey Harris, the Ravens' versatile safety and fledgling entrepreneur, has planted roots in Nashville, Tenn. He has an off-season home there and is part-owner of a sports bar that looks across the Cumberland River at the Tennessee Titans' practice field. He even has two season tickets to Titans games. "My wife uses them sometimes and I use them for my business," he said. Harris goes home for Sunday's rematch with the Titans. Part-owner of the "Sports Cafi on the Water" in Nashville with ex-Raven DeRon Jenkins and Shawn Wooden of the Chicago Bears, he says this is a special trip.
