In March, amidst their offseason shopping spree, the Miami Dolphins grabbed middle linebacker Dannell Ellerbe off the shelf and shelled out $35 million with $17 million guaranteed for him at the cash register. Three months later, the Ravens pulled veteran middle linebacker Daryl Smith, who was somehow still on the open market, out of the bargain bin and gave him a cheap one-year deal worth up to $2.125 million . With Miami being the next stop on the Ravens reunion tour, as Ellerbe and the Dolphins are hosting the Ravens on Sunday, now seems like a good time to check on how Ellerbe is doing with his new team and to compare and contrast his performance with that of Smith, the new man in the middle for the Ravens.

Ravens middle linebacker Daryl Smith takes a rapid-fire inventory prior to every snap, diagnosing the offense's nuances, formations and personnel while barking out defensive signals. Tapping his feet with excess energy and pointing his fingers to make adjustments before every play to account for audibles and motion, Smith has been entrusted as the replacement for retired middle linebacker Ray Lewis. Smith concentrates on the cerebral aspect of football as he gleans tendencies through hours of film study.

Before tonight's preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons, Daryl Smith won't dance out of the tunnel at M&T Bank Stadium like Ray Lewis used to do. Smith will, however, be the one who gets to replace Lewis at middle linebacker. With the regular season just three weeks away, Smith appears to have that starting spot locked up. Smith started there against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and had a team-high five tackles in the victory. “Yeah, Daryl is that kind of player,” coach John Harbaugh, asked about Smith always being around the ball, said after the 44-16 win last Thursday.

- Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco admits he's usually slow to remember the names of his new teammates, particularly the ones on defense. But there was something about the team's new veteran middle linebacker that stuck with Flacco almost immediately. "Daryl Smith, he looks really good," said Flacco, answering a question earlier this week about how the Ravens' defense is progressing. "I don't really notice those guys too much, but he's seemed to impress me for some reason. " The reason should be pretty obvious for anyone who watched the Ravens' 44-16 preseason-opening victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night.

The charges that former - and, evidently, future - Anne Arundel County Councilman Daryl Jones had evaded income taxes may have been a surprise, but everything that has come after that has been sadly predictable. The fact that he is now poised to regain his seat and feels a right to do so makes him the latest in a long string of Maryland politicians unburdened with anything approaching a sense of shame. In November of 2011, Mr. Jones, a Severn Democrat, was sentenced to five months in federal prison for failing to file dozens of personal and business returns over a six year period.

The Maryland Court of Appeals said Monday that the Anne Arundel County Council improperly removed a councilman from office while he served time in federal prison on tax charges in 2012. The ruling potentially opens the door for Daryl Jones to return to his seat, which he first won in 2006. Jones did not respond to requests for comment Monday, but his attorney, Linda Schuett, said, "He's very, very happy. " Jones, a Democrat who represented the northern and western parts of the county, was found guilty of failing to file tax returns and was sentenced to five months in prison.

Veteran linebacker Daryl Smith had a blade of grass sticking to his head along with a smile that wouldn't quit following his second practice since joining the Ravens. The Jaguars' all-time leading tackler is thoroughly enjoying his new winning environment after being limited to two wins and playing in just two games during an injury-plagued final season in Jacksonville. Now, Smith is signed to a one-year contract worth up to $2.125 million with the defending Super Bowl champions and has been immediately installed as a starter at inside linebacker.

Holy Hannah! What the heck was all that you guys? Axel is dead ( Good night, sweet prince ), the Governor strapped it up and gleefully squeezed off rounds on the prison stronghold, Glenn is having major leadership and relationship issues, and Daryl and Merle cut their Oregon Trail LARPing adventure short to return to cell block C. Also, Merle peed on a tree and he and Daryl spit everywhere. Were they suggesting that Merle and Daryl had huge, fat lippers in, or are they just saying that backwoods people love to spit all the time?
