TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

On Saturday, Ravens players Torrey Smith and John Simon will both be in Indianapolis, as the Ravens get ready for Sunday's game against the Colts. But while Smith and Simon take care of their own Ravens-related responsibilities, both will also be tracking what happens between Maryland and Ohio State on Saturday in College Park. Smith starred at Maryland before being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Ravens and still follows the team closely. “I don't know about the score, but I think we can beat them,” Smith said.

I was surprised to read the op-ed "Reconsider the draft" (May 24). I expected Paul Marx to trot out the tired arguments about making sure all classes and sectors of our society equally bear the burden of military service. And, of course, the author mentions some of the prominent draft dodgers. But I hold nothing against Dick Cheney for evading that illegal war in Vietnam. I do condemn, however, his malicious responsibility for sending others, under false pretences, to participate in the immoral invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

On Wednesday, Gov. Martin O'Malley said it was his "hope" to share a draft casino expansion bill with the Baltimore city House delegation by today. It appears those hopes have been dashed. O'Malley spokeswoman Raquel Guillory said putting the bill together is proving "complicated" and a draft would not be released after all. She did not give a new date. She also downplayed rumors that a date for the special session has been determined. "First we need a bill, then we can set a date," Guillory said.

The Ravens took perhaps their biggest gamble ever in the first round, selecting talented yet flawed cornerback Jimmy Smith with the 27th pick in the NFL draft Thursday. The Ravens entered the draft with the 26th pick, but they slid to No. 27 when they failed to submit their selection in time and the Kansas City Chiefs jumped ahead of them. Smith brings much-needed size, speed and shutdown cornerback ability to the 21st-ranked pass defense. He also brings more red flags than career interceptions, the major reason why a top-15 talent slid to the bottom of the first round.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.

A state panel on Tuesday hashed out more of the nitty-gritty details to create a medical marijuana industry from scratch, but some key points remained unresolved as the commission nears a deadline next week. Maryland's Medical Marijuana Commission plans to release Wednesday a second draft of regulations to create the program. Those 81-pages of rules have been reshaped after the first draft came under fire at a public hearing last month. Among the many changes in the new draft: removing a provision that would have effectively outlawed a grower or dispensary operation within Baltimore city limits.

The Maryland Department of Transportation announced $280 million in new projects in its annual budget proposal released Tuesday, far less than the billions in capital improvements announced after the increase in the state's gas tax last year. The state's latest "consolidated transportation program," which covers transportation spending from 2015 to 2020, instead pushes along various projects announced last year, including about $1.5 billion worth in the Baltimore region. The draft budget will be taken up by the General Assembly in the coming legislative session.

Offensive lineman Ryan Jensen hadn't felt like his normal self for a long time. He was visibly groggy from a lack of sleep. He was more irritable than usual. And he didn't feel as energetic as he needed to be on the Ravens' practice field. It turned out there was a reason why. Jensen recently was diagnosed with and treated for severe sleep apnea, a life-threatening disorder when left untreated. It also might have played a role in Jensen's being cut by the Ravens on Saturday after a preseason performance the 2013 sixth-round draft pick from Colorado State-Pueblo wasn't pleased with.

University of Maryland Baltimore County President Freeman A. Hrabowski III says he is not interested in becoming chancellor of the University System of Maryland. That is a shame. He is extraordinarily qualified for the job, and if he could do for the entire system what he has done for UMBC, Maryland would benefit enormously. He has spearheaded innovative new approaches to teaching and learning, particularly in math and the sciences, and he has fostered the kind of linkages between students and employers that Maryland needs to grow its innovation economy.

A collapsed house. An abandoned warehouse furred with vines. Block after block of vacant homes, shattered windows framing blackness. Then, the tunnel and the train platform. The mix of shuttered industrial spaces and faded neighborhoods that flank the tracks leading to Penn Station are some of Baltimore's bleakest landscapes. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wants to change the view for the 2 million people who use Penn Station each year - and improve Baltimore's image. She plans to formally unveil today an elegant billboard-sized sign that is visible from the train platform.

CBSSports.com NFL draft analyst Dane Brugler spent part of last week watching Maryland game tape from last season. He wanted to get a more extensive look at Stefon Diggs, the Terps' dynamic junior wide receiver and kick returner who many pundits feel could be an early-round pick in next year's draft. But Brugler said the Terps do have other players besides Diggs who are already on the radar of analysts and NFL teams for the 2015 NFL draft. In particular, Brugler focused on 6-foot-3, 320-pound nose tackle Darius Kilgo.
