Neither Ray Lewis nor Ray Rice will be on the cover of the next “Madden,” if you care about this sort of thing. Both players were eliminated in the Sweet Sixteen of the 64-player bracket to determine who will be on the cover of “Madden NFL 25,” which is the 25th anniversary edition of the popular pigskin video game franchise. Lewis, who retired after the Ravens won the Super Bowl in February, was knocked out of the “old school” bracket by former Detroit Lions back and fellow NFL legend Barry Sanders, who got 67 percent of the fan vote.

The trade is also contingent on Wilder and Williams passing physicals today with their new teams.

A year ago, Ravens fans dreamed of Nnamdi Asomugha, the star free agent cornerback who eventually signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. After all, the secondary was an area where the Ravens needed to improve. What a difference a year makes. The Ravens drafted Jimmy Smith in the first round of the 2011 draft, and Lardarius Webb and Cary Williams had breakout seasons. Now the cornerback position is a strength for the Ravens, who released veterans Chris Carr and Domonique Foxworth in the past week.

Is there any sizzle left in T-Sizzle? That's the question of the week as the Ravens prepare to play the New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. There were concerns about Terrell Suggs' performances in recent weeks, but now those are at the forefront after Suggs had no solo tackles, no assists, no pressures and no sacks in the Ravens 18-16 win against the Detroit Lions on Monday night. Where's the fizz, Sizz? No one seems to know. "We just got to get him going again," Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the NHL's worst teams last season, has new ownership that believes it can achieve the type of quick turnaround that the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers pulled off. So to head up this endeavor, word is that the Lightning will name ESPN hockey analyst Barry Melrose as the coach today. The last and only time that Melrose coached in the NHL was from 1992 to 1995 (2 1/2 seasons), and the Kings did go to the Stanley Cup Finals once, losing to the Montreal Canadiens.
