On draft weekend in April, University of Georgia linebacker Dannell Ellerbe kept watching the clock and waiting for the phone to ring. No NFL team called during the two days, as each hour passed slowly. A lot of teams called shortly after the draft was over, but a dream and reportedly $2,000 more in bonus money persuaded Ellerbe to sign a free-agent contract with the Ravens. And now the fight is on. "I just want to prove myself and show everybody that I'm good enough to play in the NFL," Ellerbe said.

So much has changed for Dannell Ellerbe since the Super Bowl . He is in a new city wearing a different uniform for another AFC contender. He is now the leader that young players look to in key moments, instead of it being the other way around. And yes, his wallet is heavier nowadays. But every time a replay of the Super Bowl pops up, he can't help but flash back to his final run with the Ravens and feel like it all happened just yesterday. "That's something that drives me today, to get back to that position and get back to the Super Bowl and win again," said Ellerbe, now the Miami Dolphins starting middle linebacker.

In March, amidst their offseason shopping spree, the Miami Dolphins grabbed middle linebacker Dannell Ellerbe off the shelf and shelled out $35 million with $17 million guaranteed for him at the cash register. Three months later, the Ravens pulled veteran middle linebacker Daryl Smith, who was somehow still on the open market, out of the bargain bin and gave him a cheap one-year deal worth up to $2.125 million . With Miami being the next stop on the Ravens reunion tour, as Ellerbe and the Dolphins are hosting the Ravens on Sunday, now seems like a good time to check on how Ellerbe is doing with his new team and to compare and contrast his performance with that of Smith, the new man in the middle for the Ravens.

It didn't appear that December would be any better for the Michigan Wolverines, with losses to Eastern Michigan and Bradley.And it didn't appear that Brian Ellerbe, the former Loyola coach who was named interim coach for the season when Steve Fisher was let go, had much chance of being named to a permanent position once the season was over. But things have changed dramatically in the past month.

Magic can fade just as suddenly as it arrives.Two years ago, the Greyhounds were unlikely Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champions and a first-round opponent of mighty Arizona in the NCAA tournament. But graduation stripped away important components such as Tracy Bergan and Michael Reese, and coach Skip Prosser left for Xavier.

It's not all bad news for the Ravens on the first day of free agency. Despite trading receiver Anquan Boldin on Monday and then losing linebackers Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe on Tuesday, the Ravens still might have a shot at retaining safety Ed Reed and offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie. Free agency is basically a young man's game, and the big names usually sign during the first couple of days when the market opens. So far, the interest has been lukewarm for McKinnie and Reed.

As soon as the Super Bowl ended and quarterback Joe Flacco signed a long term contract, the real business was going to begin as far as reshaping the Ravens. Several of the team's big name free agents were going to ask for more money, and there wasn't going to be a lot to give. The latest is Dannell Ellerbe, the best inside linebacker in free agency. There is no doubt that the Ravens want him back, but at what price? Ellerbe wants a $25 to $30 million contract worth about $6 million per season, and the Ravens want to pay about $5 million a year.

Now that quarterback Joe Flacco is poised to become the highest paid player in the NFL by virtue of a $120.6 million contract, the Ravens aren't expected to use the franchise tag on any of their other unrestricted free agents. Although Monday afternoon marks the league deadline to use the designation, general manager Ozzie Newsome has already stated that Flacco was the Ravens' lone candidate to be named a franchise player. The Flacco contract, which includes a record $62 million payout during the first three years, won't become official until the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player takes and passes a physical and signs his contract Monday.

- Besides trying to hammer out a long-term contract with quarterback Joe Flacco, the Ravens have made starting inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe another one of their top priorities. With Ray Lewis retiring, the Ravens have a void in the middle of their defense. As a pending unrestricted free agent, though, Ellerbe is expected to draw heavy interest following a breakout season capped with a team-high nine tackles during a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Ellerbe's agent, Hadley Engelhard, said he's set to meet with Ravens team officials this weekend at the NFL scouting combine.

Ravens veteran free safety Ed Reed has never embraced a conventional approach. So the Louisiana native wasn't keen on the idea of retiring after a Super Bowl victory in front of his family and friends. Following the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Reed declared in the locker room emphatically that he has more football left in him. "This is not it," Reed shouted. "This is not it. I'm not done. " Reed, 34, has battled multiple health issues, including a torn shoulder labrum and a nerve impingement.

NEW ORLEANS -- The vision has consumed some of them for almost a decade. During their most painful moments as Ravens, they wondered if it would ever happen, if they would ever experience a moment that their leader has spoken of so many times. Linebacker Ray Lewis is the only Ravens player qualified to talk about it. Twelve years ago, he stood on the field at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., and lifted the Lombardi Trophy as confetti rained down on the Super Bowl champions.

Outside linebacker Paul Kruger emerged as a dangerous pass rusher this season. Inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe tapped into his potential as a versatile three-down defender, proving capable of chasing down running backs or blitzing quarterbacks. Cornerback Cary Williams played well while guarding opponents' top receivers after Lardarius Webb tore his anterior cruciate ligament. Although all three young defenders are in their prime and pivotal to the Ravens' bid to win the Super Bowl heading into Sunday's AFC championship game against the New England Patriots, this could be their final game playing for the AFC North champions.
