The new and improved Eric Green is almost as impressive as the old one.Only a couple of days ago in training camp, the tight end blocked linebacker Chris Buxton 15 yards down the field and out of the video camera picture. A day later, he caught two long passes in practice, including one for 40 yards for a touchdown against middle linebacker Ray Lewis.If that wasn't enough, then consider yesterday. Green, who reportedly missed 39 practices in one season with the Miami Dolphins, told tight ends coach Ken Whisenhunt his knee was sore.

In the words of coach Ted Marchibroda, the Ravens have sorely missed tight end Eric Green, who is basically impossible to miss. At 6 feet 5, 285 pounds, Green casts a wider shadow than any other receiver in the league.Teammates and team officials alike have called him a freak, what with his unusual blend of size, light feet, soft hands and ability to deliver devastating blocks.Green is just thrilled to have made it back from a freakish injury. When he lines up tomorrow as a starter against Jacksonville, Green will mark his first appearance since going down with a ruptured air sac in his chest against Tennessee three weeks ago. The injury occurred after Green fell on the football following a reception, and it interrupted an excellent start to the season.

The Ravens landed one of the game's premier offensive players last night, as Denver Broncos free-agent tight end Shannon Sharpe agreed in principle to a four-year, $13.2 million contract that includes a $4.5 million signing bonus. It is the biggest free-agent acquisition in the Ravens' four-year history, and Sharpe becomes the NFL's highest-paid tight end, averaging $3.3 million a season, more than the five-year, $15 million deal recently signed by the Indianapolis Colts' Ken Dilger. Sharpe's agent, Marvin Demoff, agreed to the contract and later began negotiating a deal for another client, Ravens quarterback Tony Banks.

He is not yet officially a Raven, although free agent tight end Eric Green sure feels like one.For the past four months, Green has been rehabilitating his left knee under the watchful eyes of Ravens trainer Bill Tessendorf. The Ravens provided Green's arthroscopic surgery in January. They are pleased with his weight loss and the soundness of his knee. They are determined to suit him up for the entire 1997 season.The only step left for Green and the Ravens is agreeing to a contract, something they have been discussing off and on for weeks.

Ray Lucas' ankle is still sore, so the Jets are stuck with Mirer at QB for another week. As bad as he has been, Mirer should be good enough to beat Brown, subbing for an injured Jake Plummer, and a reeling Arizona team that has scored 85 points -- that's fewer than every other team except Cleveland -- and more than 16 in a game once, in the opener vs. Philadelphia.

Another day, another fight: Tailback Errict Rhett is challenging offensive tackle Orlando Brown for the title of Player Most Likely To Brawl. During yesterday morning's practice, Rhett and safety Stevon Moore exchanged haymakers and yanked each other's face masks in a doozy that lasted a good minute. At least a dozen players, including Brown, helped break up the scuffle.Up one day, down the next: Two days ago, second-year linebacker Tyrell Peters delivered the shot of the day by knocking fullback Kenyon Cotton off his feet.

Eric Green is counting the number of NFL players who can stop him. He doesn't even need one finger, much less one hand."I always feel that putting me one-on-one with anybody is a mismatch," the Ravens' tight end said.Anybody?"Anybody."Deion Sanders?"He's too little."A top linebacker?"Too slow."On the other side of the locker room, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis ponders Green's quiet boast."He has a great point there," Lewis said. "If you put a speed guy on him, he'll throw him around. And if you put a slow linebacker on him, he'll beat him."

The Ravens completed a trade with New England yesterday by obtaining tight end Lovett Purnell from the Patriots for a sixth-round pick in this year's NFL draft.The Ravens also signed Purnell, a restricted free agent entering his fourth season, to a one-year, $500,000 contract. The deal includes an incentive package that could push Purnell's 1999 earnings to $1 million.Purnell, 6 feet 3, 245 pounds, is the fourth tight end the Ravens have added during the off-season. They also have signed Aaron Pierce -- who did not play in 1998 -- and former Minnesota Viking Greg DeLong, who is considered more of an H-back.

Jonathan Ogden , the Ravens' Pro Bowl left offensive tackle, yesterday questioned his team's commitment to winning after allowing three starting offensive linemen to leave via free agency, and he also was uncertain about his future in Baltimore after the remaining two years expire on his contract. Right tackle Orlando Brown signed a six-year, $27.3 million contract with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday that made him the highest-paid offensive lineman in the NFL, and center-guard Wally Williams signed a five-year, $18.5 million deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Brian Billick may have worked wonders with Minnesota's offense, but the Ravens' new coach has thrown up a caution sign to Baltimore fans expecting him to resuscitate its stagnant attack overnight.Four weeks into his new job, Billick has reviewed enough of the team's 1998 performance on videotape to see that the Ravens' offense does not require dynamite as its first rebuilding tool. But the unit is in dire need of help-- personnel, coaching, game-planning, play-calling."If anybody looks at this offense and thinks it's just a player or two away from being productive, they would be mistaken," said Billick, who is less than thrilled by what he has seen from the quarterback, fullback, receiver, tight end and certain offensive line positions.

One day after the Ravens' 16-14 loss to the Tennessee Oilers, the team began a healing process on the offensive line.In one of the strangest occurrences of the season, four of the Ravens' offensive linemen were hurt in one game. The team looked as if it were having a hot tub party yesterday.Coach Ted Marchibroda listed both offensive tackles, Orlando Brown and Jonathan Ogden, as questionable for Sunday's home game against the Minnesota Vikings because of ankle sprains, as well as right guard Jeff Blackshear, who has an abdominal strain.

The last time tight end Eric Green played an entire game, the Ravens scored three offensive touchdowns and beat the Cincinnati Bengals, 31-24.Since he suffered a ruptured air sac in his lung when he fell on the football against Tennessee, the Ravens have scored just one touchdown in three games.Coach Ted Marchibroda said that's no small coincidence, and that Green's expected return Sunday against Jacksonville will help the offense."I think at this particular time, our leader on the offensive club is Eric Green," Marchibroda said.
