Ray Rice hasn't signed his one-year tender with the Ravens that will pay him about $7.7 million and isn't participating in the three-day minicamp this week, so he needs to make a little cash right now. Xenith, LLC, manufacturer of the X2 football helmet and other protective equipment, announced today that the Ravens running back will be "a Xenith brand ambassador and will promote Xenith's strategy for Building the Enlightened Warrior," according to...

Is it possible to brand a race? Dan Snyder is willing to bet the estate on it. The owner of the Washington Redskins has adorned himself with his finest pair of marketing pants and declared that he will not change his football franchise's name in the foreseeable future. For Mr. Snyder, the team's name has transcended its racist connotations and has morphed into a flag of pride for those who follow it. In a letter to his fans, he waxes nostalgic about being born a Redskin. He fondly recalls his first game with his father and the chilling experience and atmosphere.

Ray Lewis has quit football and apparently he's leaving his Florida mansion behind too. The Ravens star has put his West Palm Beach property on the market, asking $5 million for the luxury estate. The home, along the prestigious Ocean Drive, boasts seven bedrooms and more than 6,700 square feet to spread out and squirrel dance. Built in 2001, there are also nine bathrooms, a five-car garage, a pool and an elevator. It's a pink Mediterranean, surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.

The National Athletic Trainers' Association released a statement Wednesday to reiterate the dangers of helmet-to-helmet contact in football and called for crown of the helmet violations to be called consistently at all levels of the game. Now is a good time to review the NATA recommendations, especially after the death Friday night of a 16-year-old player in western New York after what was described in local reports as "a helmet-to-helmet hit” during a high school football game.

Matt Stover's accomplishments in his 13-season tenure with the Ravens and 20-year career in the NFL are too many to list. The highlights include ranking fourth in NFL history in career points (2,004) and field goals made (471), seventh in field-goal accuracy (83.7 percent on 471-for-563 kicking) and first in field goals made outdoors (445) and field-goal accuracy outdoors (84.9 percent). But for Stover, who retired after the 2009 season and will be inducted into the Ravens' Ring of Honor during halftime of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium, the achievements pale in comparison to what he viewed as his true objective.

Never has professional football seemed so distant or foreign as in the grand, marbled lobby of the Maryland Institute, College of Art, where students sit cross-legged or sprawled out on the floor to sketch the larger-than-life Grecian statues in residence. One couldn't feel farther from a sports bar or sports talk radio. Here, students study the shadows and light in such works as "Theseus: From the Parthenon." Their drawings attempt to capture classic human form in these monuments to strength, grace and beauty.

25 years ago George Plimpton, the unquenchable amateur, tries his hand as a rookie quarterback for the Baltimore Colts on "Plimpton! The Great Quarterback Sneak," a one-hour ABC television network special at 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 26 on WJZ-TV. From the start of the training season, at the Colts' camp in Westminster through all the classes, scrimmages, calisthenics and inevitable trips to the infirmary, George observed and, whenever humanly possible, participated. He had donned football helmet and shoulder padding before to do research for a book, the best-selling "Paper Lion."

Annapolis and the state of Maryland owe a debt of gratitude to a mutinous midshipman hanged from the yardarm.Midshipman Philip Spencer's attempted takeover of the brig-of-war Somers in 1842 persuaded then-Navy Secretary George Bancroft that prospective naval officers needed better training. He decided to replace on-ship training with an on-shore academy that he chose to place at a naval station on the Severn River. Thus in 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy was founded.Tonight, the academy kicks off a year-long 150th anniversary celebration with the premiere of a documentary about the school.

As the 2000 Ravens embraced their defensive identity and a run-first offensive strategy, head coach Brian Billick -- coordinator of wide-open passing offenses in Minnesota -- joked that he'd been " pulled over to the dark side . " Almost 14 years later, an artist in Mexico has designed a football helmet to better depict Billick and the Ravens' fall. In a project posted on behance.net , artist John Raya shows off his Star Wars-themed redesigns of helmets for the teams in the AFC and NFC . Raya substituted each NFL city with a planet from the Star Wars universe and each NFL mascot with a character or creature from the the sci-fi staple.

Six-year-old Mark Hurt bounds into the Broadway Street Market looking for a good trade. While he's missing two teeth, he's not going to miss what he holds in his hand -- a coloring book of "The Emperor's New Clothes."Yesterday afternoon, more than 50 kids brought their least-liked toys to the 33rd annual Kids Swap Shop in hopes of trading them away. At noon, everyone lines up to register. The little people take a hesitant look at the toys about to leave their arms forever, while the big people assess other toys that would make a great trade.
