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.

The Orioles have reinstated third baseman Michael Almanzar, the club's Rule 5 pick, from the 60-day disabled list and designated him for assignment, the club announced Monday. The Orioles took Almanzar in the Rule 5 draft in December following a season in which he hit .268/.328/.432 with 16 homers and 81 RBIs with the Boston Red Sox's Double-A club in Portland. But Almanzar, 23, opened the season on the disabled list with tendinitis in his left knee and was transferred to the 60-day disabled list June 6. Almanzar was on a minor league rehabilitation assignment since June 20, hitting .156 with one homer and four RBIs with the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League club, High-A Frederick and Triple-A Norfolk.

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.

The Orioles have agreed to a $525,500 signing bonus with their 2013 third-round draft pick Stephen Tarpley, a left-handed pitcher from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College. Tarpley is the highest pick that has agreed so far with the team, and he did so at the suggested slot bonus for the 98 th overall selection. The club has not exchanged figures yet with its top pick, North Carolina high school right hander Hunter Harvey (22 nd overall), presumably waiting for some of the lower drafted players to sign first.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Even though the Orioles handed out a historic four-year deal to right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, the club believes it has gotten a deal given the money being handed out on the free-agent market. As much as fans in Baltimore have railed that they'll never see the Orioles open their wallets for a high-profile free agent, today is their day. Jimenez's deal is worth roughly $50 million. He is the fifth free-agent starter to receive a deal of four years or more, but out of the five, his $12.5 million average annual salary is comparable to the others.

Former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis used his platform as an ESPN NFL analyst Thursday night to give his blessing to the team's first-round draft pick, linebacker C.J. Mosley of Alabama. “This is a leader at the position of linebacker,” Lewis said during the ESPN broadcast of the man who could be his heir in the middle of the Baltimore defense. “I left there a couple years ago, but when you watch this kid play football, his instinct is what impresses me the most. He's very patient with his feet, he stays in the pocket and when he gets there ... he's actually a reader.

Manny Machado strolled into his news conference Monday looking every bit like an 18-year-old kid, not a multimillionaire draft pick charged with helping rebuild a franchise. The baby-faced high school shortstop, who signed a $5.2 million contract with the Orioles after he was drafted third overall in the 2010 amateur draft, was dressed in a baggy Aberdeen IronBirds jersey that looked at least a size too big. It reminded you of a kid who shows up to his junior prom wearing his father's dress shirt.

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.

As it turns out, the  Ravens  didn't make out as well as what was originally thought in the deal that sent inactive middle linebacker Rolando McClain to the  Dallas Cowboys . It was widely reported after the deal that the Ravens would send McClain, who was on the reserved/retired list, plus a 2015 seventh-round pick to the Cowboys for a 2015 sixth-round pick. However, that's the best-case scenario. The Cowboys announced the terms of the deal today and that 2015 draft pick exchange will only take place if McClain plays 50 percent of the defensive snaps for Dallas during the 2014 season.

One month after losing a University of Maryland cornerback, the Ravens helped replace him by acquiring another one. The Ravens traded a conditional fifth-round draft pick in 2011 to the Seattle Seahawks for speedy cornerback Josh Wilson on Tuesday. This anticipated trade for a cornerback upgrades the Ravens' defensive backfield, which lost its top cornerback, Domonique Foxworth, to a season-ending knee injury at the end of July. Wilson, 25, is considered a significant upgrade at nickel back for the Ravens.

CLEVELAND - First-round draft pick Brian Matusz spent yesterday in Baltimore taking a physical, as the Orioles and his agent continued to work toward a deal before tonight's deadline. The Orioles, who took the left-handed pitcher from the University of San Diego with the fourth overall pick in the June draft, have until midnight to reach an agreement. If they can't, they will forfeit the rights to Matusz and get a similar compensatory pick in next year's draft. However, it appears things won't get to that point.
