The Maryland football team added a monster to its defensive line when Frankenshaw committed to the program Monday morning. David Shaw, as he's more commonly known, a junior from Spring Grove, Pa., is the fourth commit in the Terps' 2014 class and the first defensive recruit in the class. The 6-foot-6, 275 pound defensive lineman brings a combination of speed and strength to the line in addition to his work ethic. Shaw's nickname, Frankenshaw, came about when Spring Grove assistant Greg Bowman watched Shaw do a drill called “Frankensteins,” where he lifted one leg forward, touched his toes and switched to the other leg. Shaw comes from a family of Division I athletes, as his brothers, John and Jim, both played at Penn State and his father, James, played at Colgate.

Maryland defensive lineman Isaiah Ross has been suspended for a year for violations of university policy. Another player -- offensive lineman Pete White -- is leaving the team although he remains enrolled at the school. Ross is also still enrolled. Maryland would not offer details about Ross. The only offense cited in the university's "Policy on Conduct and Ethics for Student-Athletes" and the "Drug Policy for Student-Athletes" that specifically mandates a year-long suspension is a third violation of the drug policy.

Wide receiver Deonte Thompson was cut by the Ravens on Wednesday, marking the second time in the past five days he's been released. The Ravens replaced him on the roster by claiming former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Lawrence Guy off waivers. He was cut by the Chargers on Tuesday. The Ravens need depth on the defensive line with Chris Canty and Timmy Jernigan both dealing with knee injuries. Canty didn't practice Wednesday. Jernigan has a meniscus injury that kept him from playing against the Cleveland Browns and is still hoping to avoid surgery.

"The first thing that went through my head was 'Dang, I'm going to need a year of rehab,' because of the way it felt.

Dwan Edwards' first week as a Raven was a blur. In April 2004, the defensive lineman was drafted in the second round. Two days later, he became a father. By the end of the week, he was flying cross-country for his first minicamp. It didn't seem like life would ever slow down ... until it quickly did. For three seasons, Edwards was inactive for half of the Ravens' games, standing on the sideline in street clothes while his teammates played. Instead of lining up against offensive linemen, Edwards had to face questions about when - or if - he would play.

During his decade playing for the Ravens, gritty defensive lineman Kelly Gregg anchored the nose tackle position in a fairly revolutionary way. Gregg did more than just clog up the middle and prevent blockers from touching star middle linebacker Ray Lewis. As one of the most underrated players in the NFL -- he was never selected to a Pro Bowl -- Gregg was uncommonly active in pursuit and frequently penetrated the backfield as he recorded 548 tackles and 20.5 sacks in his career.

When the Ravens drafted imposing Virginia defensive end Brent Urban in the fourth round, the hope was that he would be fully ready by training camp after undergoing ankle surgery in February following the Senior Bowl. Urban is already well ahead of that schedule, though, as he was able to participate in everything this spring after being sidelined for a rookie minicamp. During the first week of training camp, the 6-foot-6, 298-pound former hockey player from Canada hasn't experienced any setbacks.

Veteran defensive lineman Chris Canty has studied the tape of last season for months, searching for clues to determine why his first year with the Ravens wasn't more productive. Canty has reached a few conclusions through his self-scouting, seeing chances squandered to hit the quarterback and a need to become more durable. Canty finished with just 30 tackles, two sacks, four pass deflections and two forced fumbles last season. However, none of the sacks or forced fumbles were made during the final dozen games.
