Last week's caption contest got some good responses. Not too bad for having symphony tickets as a prize. Let's keep it going. Come up with a funny, clever and clean caption for this remarkable photo of Ravens head coach John Harbaugh showing tight end Davon Drew how hard he expects him to practice in training camp for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Maryland State Fair. The deadline is Thursday at noon.

For the first time in almost a month, the Ravens had their top two tight ends on the practice field together, and the sight of Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta was an encouraging sign for coach John Harbaugh. “It's good to get them back out there and get them running around,” Harbaugh said after Saturday's practice at the team's training facility in Owings Mills. “They're both catching passes and moving. They've both done a great job of staying in shape. They've both been in the weight room, doing cardio.

DRESS REHEARSAL: Near the end of their last open practice before Thursday night's preseason opener, the Ravens ran a two-minute simulation where the offense had to drive the length of the field. The first-team defense got the better of the starting offense, forcing quarterback Joe Flacco to settle for short completions, which quickly wound down the clock. After Flacco spiked the ball with eight seconds left, kicker Billy Cundiff missed a game-tying attempt from 58 yards. TURBULENT TYROD: Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor, as has often been the case this summer, was up-and-down during the indoor practice.

With the loss of Ed Dickson (sprained right shoulder) and Dennis Pitta (broken right hand) for the remainder of the preseason, the thought was that the Ravens would scour the free-agent market to fortify the tight end position. But that's not necessarily the case, according to coach John Harbaugh. “I don't know. We'll just have to see,” he said after Saturday's practice at the team's training facility in Owings Mills. “It's not just needing a guy, it's also guys being available that you think can play, and if they can stay healthy.

With tight end Dennis Pitta nursing a broken bone in his right hand that is expected to sideline him until the Ravens' regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10, the burden has been on Ed Dickson , who started all 18 games (regular season and playoffs) last year, to perform well. But Dickson is not alone. Davon Drew has been getting his share of reps that would have normally gone to Pitta, and with two rookies (Matt Balasavage and Bruce Figgins)

After a 2011 campaign that ended with him catching 22 passes for 231 yards and four touchdowns in six regular-season games and two playoff contests, Dennis Pitta had plenty of reasons to look forward to the upcoming season. But the Ravens tight end has been shelved by a broken bone in his right hand - an injury that is expected to sideline him until the regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10. One might expect Pitta to be frustrated or disappointed by the setback, but fellow tight end Ed Dickson said Pitta isn't moping around the locker room or in the meeting rooms.

The Ravens today signed reserve tight end Edgar Jones to a one-year, $545,000 deal. He wasn't tendered by the team as a restricted free agent. Jones also has played linebacker for the Ravens and has been a solid special teams player for the team. Tight end is one of the areas the Ravens could be targeting in the upcoming NFL Draft. After starter Todd Heap and Jones, plus practice squad player Davon Drew, a fifth-round draft pick a year ago, the Ravens are thin at the position.

The Ravens made a roster move Wednesday in light of the Indianapolis Colts plucking a player off of the practice squad. The Colts signed rookie fullback Ryan Mahaffey from the Ravens practice squad to the active roster. To fill the void, the Ravens re-signed tight end Davon Drew, who spent the last four games (including postseason) of the 2010 season on the active roster before getting released this past preseason.

The Ravens continue to make quick work of signing their draft picks, agreeing to a three-year deal with third-round selection Lardarius Webb. The cornerback from Nicholls State received a signing bonus of about $530,000. "Lardarius was slowed some in the [organized team activities] with a hamstring problem, but toward the end, when he was feeling better, he showed he belonged," coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. "He'll help us on special teams, including as a gunner, and he'll contribute to our defense."

Thin on tight end depth after Dennis Pitta broke a bone in his right hand in Monday's practice, the Ravens today signed veteran Billy Bajema , who started 11 games for the St. Louis Rams last year. Bajema, 29, is 6-5 and 260 pounds, and is considered more of a blocking tight end. When Pitta returns -- he's expected to miss four-to-six weeks after having surgery yesterday and team officials are optimistic he'll be back for the Sept. 10 regular-season opener -- Bajema should compete with veteran Davon Drew and undrafted rookie free agents  Matt Balasavage (Temple)

ATLANTA -- Tight end Ed Dickson salvaged an otherwise disappointing night for the Ravens' first-team offense by going up high and snatching a Joe Flacco pass for a 9-yard touchdown early in the second quarter of the preseason opener Thursday. But on a night where Flacco was hit several times, Ray Rice found little room to run and the first-team offense had 9 total yards in three drives in the first quarter , even the touchdown drive ended poorly. Dickson, the starting tight end who caught 54 balls for 528 yards and five touchdowns last season, subluxed his shoulder on the touchdown catch, coach John Harbaugh said.

If you are one of the local football fans who has been chomping at the bit to see the Baltimore Ravens in action since the 2011-12 season closed, you might not have to wait another four months to do so - several of the purple-clothed heroes will be at Ripken Stadium Sunday for the Lardarius Webb Charity Softball Classic. In addition to Webb, who began organizing the games in 2010, Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco, running back Ray Rice, wide receiver Torrey Smith, tight end Ed Dickson, cornerback Jimmy Smith, cornerback Cary Williams and wide receiver Anquan Boldin are slated to compete in Sunday's contest.

The Ravens and the Eagles kick off their preseason schedules Thursday night with an exhibition at Lincoln Financial Field that will mostly be meaningless when the scores are tallied up at the end of the evening. Everybody knows -- well, maybe except for Steve Spurrier -- that the outcome doesn't really matter, and that we will be treated to very vanilla football because the teams are saving the good stuff for September. But that doesn't mean there won't be intriguing storylines to follow once the starters check out in the second quarter.

The Ravens' front office has long been admired for its decision making during the draft, but Ozzie Newsome, Eric DeCosta and Company also take great pride in the work that they do in the couple of hours following its conclusion. Offensive lineman Mike Flynn and linebackers Bart Scott, Jameel McClain and Dannell Ellerbe are among the undrafted free agents that the Ravens have signed and developed into key contributors. The Ravens won't announce their latest undrafted free agent class until the players officially pass physicals and sign contracts, which will happen at some point before the start of the rookie mini-camp in the second week of May. But most - if not all of the names have come out and been confirmed - either on the player's Twitter accounts, by their college athletic departments or in media reports.
