Ravens Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata can likely expect to hear from the league office in the near future. Ngata kicked Redskins offensive guard Shawn Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter. Ngata retaliated to stick up for his teammate after Lauvao stuck Franks a bit late. "When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just pissed that he was doing that and just nudged him," Ngata said.

As the Ravens hit the practice field Tuesday, one of their AFC rivals was putting the finishing touches on a significant trade. The New England Patriots sent six-time Pro Bowl offensive guard Logan Mankins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for tight end Tim Wright and a 2015 fourth-round pick. Could the Ravens and general manager Ozzie Newsome also have a deal up their sleeves before they have to set their final roster at 53 on Saturday? Ravens coach John Harbaugh certainly sounded receptive to the idea, but he learned long ago to temper his expectations when it comes to trades at this time of year.

Defensive coordinator Dean Pees said Friday that the outside concerns about the Ravens' cornerback depth aren't unfounded. The team feels the same way. “I don't think there's been more made of it,” Pees said. “I think there is [real concern]. There's some depth, there's competition, but we've got to come out of this preseason [and] somebody has got to rise up.” Pees said he has no doubts about fourth-year cornerback Jimmy Smith, but that's the only given as the team enters the second week of camp.

Responding to a question about whether rookie safety Terrence Brooks could be an option in the nickel back role, Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees' answer probably could have applied to several positions. "It's an option. Everybody is an option right now," Pees said. "We're just trying to find guys. We're kind of moving guys around a little bit. We have two more games really to kind of experiment with where we want to put guys and see where they fit getting ready for the season.

Veteran cornerback Aaron Ross, who won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants but has had trouble staying healthy, said on Twitter that he's heading to Baltimore to participate in the Ravens' mandatory minicamp this week. According to a source, the Ravens haven't officially signed the free agent cornerback. Ross is taking part in the minicamp on a tryout basis, per a source. Veteran cornerback  Drayton Florence told The Sun's Aaron Wilson that he will also have a tryout for the team this week as the Ravens continue to look to upgrade their cornerback depth.

When the Ravens signed veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks last week after successful minicamp tryouts for both, it was viewed as even more unlikely that they'd make a serious run at Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers who had surprisingly been released by the Kansas City Chiefs. Looking to upgrade their cornerback depth, the Ravens had some conversations about adding Flowers, but ultimately others teams coveted the 28-year-old more. One of those teams, the San Diego Chargers, have agreed today to a one-year deal with Flowers, according to multiple reports.

The Ravens are signing veteran linebacker Austin Spitler after a successful minicamp tryout, according to NFL sources. Spitler was a seventh-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2010. Spitler, 27, is a 6-foot-2, 250-pounder who has 31 career tackles in four NFL seasons. He is a former Ohio State starter and team captain. The Ravens are also signing undrafted rookie outside linebacker-defensive end Nick DiMarco. DiMarco is a 6-foot-2, 250-pounder from William Penn. The Ravens are expected to add other players, with veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks regarded as likely additions.

Authorities charged nine Michigan State players with misdemeanor assault and conspiracy Wednesday following last month's dormitory brawl. The players, all suspended by coach Mark Dantonio , face up to a one-year maximum sentence on the conspiracy charge, and up to 93 days on the other charges. A Michigan State spokesman said the suspended players, which include starting DB Chris L. Rucker and receivers B.J. Cunningham and Mark Dell , are not allowed in the weight room, study areas or other parts of the football building and will not accompany the team to its Jan. 2 Alamo Bowl game against Texas Tech.
