Tight end Daniel Wilcox signed a new three-year contract with the Ravens in March. He averaged 7.7 yards on 20 receptions last year. He also led the team with his career-high 18 special teams tackles. With your new contract, did you get a new car? "Actually I did. I wasn't expecting to get a new one, but my truck got wrecked at the end of the season last year so I got something else. I got a Ford F-150." So nothing really fancy? "I'm a truck guy, just straight old Ford. This is my third or fourth truck in six years."

The Ravens stamped themselves as a contender in this year's playoff race yesterday with another historic run by Ed Reed. The Pro Bowl free safety broke his NFL record with an 108-yard interception return for a touchdown, highlighting the Ravens' 36-7 rout of the Philadelphia Eagles before 71,379 at M&T Bank Stadium. Reed's runback in the fourth quarter eclipsed his previous record -- 106 yards in November 2004 -- and gave the Ravens a platform to declare themselves a major contender in the AFC postseason hunt.

After most of the Ravens had left the practice field Tuesday morning, Daniel Wilcox spent a few minutes teaching rookie tight end Quinn Sypniewski how to quickly turn his body toward the quarterback and become a better pass-catching target. A fifth-round draft pick who had difficulty catching passes in the early session, Sypniewski watched closely as Wilcox demonstrated what he was explaining. Entering his fifth NFL season, Wilcox is a veteran. But after signing a three-year contract in March, this is the first time the tight end and special teams player is enjoying some stability.

Every practice, wide receiver Yamon Figurs works under the watchful eye of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Sometimes that means Figurs is the target of more criticism, but he said he knows it is constructive. "Every day, he's on me in practice about getting better," Figurs said. "I'm catching the balls and looking them in and doing all of the other stuff right." Those results might have influenced Cameron's prediction a week ago that Figurs would help fill the void left by the season-ending left ankle injury to Demetrius Williams.

There was too much downtime in the offseason for Daniel Wilcox. After he underwent surgery in January to repair his sprained left big toe, doctors ordered the Ravens tight end to stay off it for several months, adding that the healing process typically takes about a year. Naturally, Wilcox was concerned that his toe might impede his return to the job he loves. Just as worrisome was whether there would be a job for him to return to. "This is a scary league, where if you sit out for too long, somebody could come in and have your position in a matter of days or weeks," Wilcox said Monday after his first practice since being activated off the team's physically-unable-to-perform list.

The Ravens today signed cornerback Zach Norton to the active roster from the practice squad. Tight end Terry Jones, in his fourth season with the Ravens, was released to make room for Norton. Jones had 50 catches for 417 yards and five touchdowns in his first three seasons with Baltimore, but he was rarely used this season. The former fifth-round draft had fallen behind Todd Heap, Daniel Wilcox and Darnell Dinkins in the Ravens' tight end rotation and was inactive for most games. Norton is in his second season after being signed as a rookie free agent out of Cincinnati.

Biggest cheer Not that anybody needed a reminder of how much love is thrown in Ray Lewis' direction, but the linebacker drew the loudest applause when he read quarterback Drew Olson's eyes and intercepted the ensuing pass. Scott goes deep Linebacker Bart Scott is re-living his college days when he was a safety at Southern Illinois University. During one play on an 11-on-11 drill, free safety Ed Reed blitzed, and the 6-foot-2, 240-pound Scott showed off some serious speed sprinting back as the deep safety.

A few minutes after Ravens coach John Harbaugh described Derrick Mason's status as a "game-time decision," the veteran wide receiver had a different take. "I'm going to make the trip to New York, and I expect to be on the field," said Mason, who dislocated his left shoulder five days ago. Mason didn't practice yesterday and is not expected to do so the entire week. But he said he has played in the past without practicing. The last time he missed a game because of injury was Oct. 13, 2002.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh and the NFL can agree on one thing: no comment. Neither party was willing to answer questions regarding the controversial roughing-the-passer penalty on linebacker Terrell Suggs that contributed to the Tennessee Titans' game-winning touchdown drive in the Ravens' 13-10 loss Sunday. On third-and-10 late in the fourth quarter, referee Bill Carollo flagged Suggs for what Carollo saw as a blow to Titans quarterback Kerry Collins' helmet, even though video replays appeared to show that Suggs was closer to Collins' shoulder than his head.

As frightened as players, coaches and fans were while medical personnel carried strong safety Dawan Landry off the field at M&T Bank Stadium on a stretcher Sunday, no one was more concerned than Landry himself. For the first time since suffering a spinal cord concussion in the final seconds of the first half of Sunday's 28-10 win over the Cleveland Browns, Landry, 25, spoke publicly about his ordeal. "Real scary," the three-year starter said yesterday inside the locker room of the team's training facility in Owings Mills.

Tight end Adam Bergen has gone from the unemployment line to the top of the Ravens' depth chart. Less than a year removed from being waived by the Dallas Cowboys before the start of the 2007 season, Bergen found himself running with the first offense, starting in the Ravens' two preseason games this summer. While two-time Pro Bowl tight end Todd Heap (right calf) and Daniel Wilcox (offseason toe surgery) have been sidelined, Bergen, 6 feet 4, 267 pounds, who was signed by the Ravens on July 22, has impressed coaches with his durability and pass-catching skills.

The uneven-play bug appears to have infected quarterback Troy Smith, too. In his first start of the preseason, Smith helped the Ravens score a touchdown on their first offensive series and guided the offense into Minnesota Vikings territory last night. But the offense could not collect any points on its two other forays across midfield, and Smith capped his evening with a poorly thrown slant pass behind wide receiver Mark Clayton that was intercepted by safety Darren Sharper. Smith showed flashes of what he could provide as the team's quarterback.

Terrell Suggs will report to the Ravens tomorrow, ending a 23-day absence from the team, a source said. The two-time Pro Bowl player will sign his franchise tag tender that will pay him $8.5 million this season as a hybrid defensive end-linebacker. Suggs, 25, will miss his second preseason game tonight but is scheduled to practice Monday and participate in about 15 plays in the third preseason contest at St. Louis. He would likely sit out the preseason finale and be ready to play in the Sept.

Trevor Pryce and Kelly Gregg watched yesterday's morning practice from the sideline. The reason wasn't injury; it was seniority. First-year Ravens coach John Harbaugh has instituted "the 30-plus club," which gives the older players every third day off. "The camp is structured [repetition]-wise for a certain amount of recovery time," Harbaugh said. "The guys who are over 30 just don't recover quickly. They're working hard, but you got to pull those guys back or it starts piling up on them.
