That's when we'll find out how far Harrington, a polished, efficient quarterback at Oregon last season, drops in the first round.

Spurred by the death of a toddler named Bryanna Harris, legislators are introducing bills intended to identify parents and others who might harm children before abuse occurs, closing gaps in a system that has too often failed families in Baltimore. Among other things, the bills would require city and county social services officials to keep track of parents with a history of abuse so that any new children they have can be protected. Some legislators want to broaden that approach through reporting systems that would identify children who come into contact with known abusers, such as pedophiles.

The head of the state's social services agency defended yesterday his workers' performance in attempting to protect the children of Keisha Carr, who was convicted of killing one infant son and breaking the arms and legs of another. "It is tragic every time a child dies, whether in our system or outside of it, but we can no more prevent all child abuse than highly competent police officers can prevent all homicides," Christopher J. McCabe, secretary of the Maryland Department of Human Resources, wrote in an e-mail to The Sun. Carr, a 23-year-old former security guard from West Baltimore, was on probation for breaking the arms and legs of her oldest son, James Carr IV, when she killed her second child, David, on Feb. 12 last year, by breaking his skull, ribs and leg, according to court records.

Baltimore's top health official proposed yesterday that the state reform its troubled child protective system by stationing abuse caseworkers in hospitals 24 hours a day and acting more quickly to remove minors from dangerous homes. Dr. Peter L. Beilenson, the city's health commissioner, said the reforms to the state-run Baltimore Department of Social Services could help prevent deaths such as that of 2-month- old David Carr, whose fatal beating was detailed in The Sun on Sunday. "As illustrated in recent local media reports, far too many children are being abused while on the watch of the Department of Social Services," Beilenson wrote in a report released yesterday.

Two days before the start of free agency, the Ravens and quarterback Jeff Blake are trying to clear up some mixed signals. While the team has repeatedly expressed its intentions to bring Blake back, Blake's agent said the Ravens' only contract proposal was not market value for a starter. Ralph Cindrich, who represents the 11-year veteran, sent his first counteroffer yesterday that could yield starter's money for Blake if certain incentives are met. "They are not presenting a starter-type contract," Cindrich said.

In November 2002, a health counselor called the Baltimore Department of Social Services in fear, warning that a 22-year-old mother convicted of breaking her baby's arms and legs had abandoned a court-ordered psychiatric treatment program. The nonprofit Healthy Start program alerted Social Services that Keisha L. Carr might injure her son again. Carr was suffering from severe depression but often didn't take her medication. And she was about to give birth to another child, which her counselors feared could trigger a mental crisis that could put her 1-year-old son and the newborn at risk.

COLLEGE PARK -- There were assorted objectives for the Varsity-Alumni game that finished spring football practice at Maryland yesterday.First, coach Mark Duffner wanted to revive an old Maryland tradition and one he used at Holy Cross, letting past and current players mix it up. The Varsity got out early and cruised to an 18-13 victory at Byrd Stadium, and the Alumni, other than Jerry Claiborne's team disagreeing with an official's call in the fourth quarter,...

HOUSTON - David Carr would prefer to count how many times he has stood up rather than how many times he has been sacked. That makes the approaching record sound a little more appealing. Opponents have constantly pummeled the Houston Texans' quarterback in his rookie campaign, but Carr always remains the optimist. He has absorbed 68 sacks, and with three games remaining, including tomorrow's matchup against the Ravens, he will surely surpass the NFL sack record of 72, set by Randall Cunningham in 1986.
