Ravens reserve wide receiver Deonte Thompson's felony and misdemeanor drug charges have been dismissed by Florida prosecutors, according to his lawyer and court records. Thompson was arrested in February in Gainesville, Fla., and charged with felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The case against Thompson was dropped due to insufficient evidence against him, according to Alachua County court records. Alvon Summerall, a co-defendant and the driver of the car that was stopped with Thompson a passenger, has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license, according to court records.

Ravens safety Matt Elam will make $6.767 million over the course of his four-year rookie contract. He doesn't have to pay for the remaining 20 credits he needs to graduate from Florida. So, naturally, he seems to have gotten a job at the Gainesville, Fla., Finish Line while he completes his anthropology degree. Elam told the Ravens' team website that he was going back to school in part because of his mother. “One reason I'm going back is my mom. I promised her I was going to go back,” Elam said.

There are certain things you expect from Steve Spurrier. The ever-present visor shielding his tanned face. The sharp verbal needle he is apt to thrust at any given moment, often without warning, occasionally without discretion. The prolific offense that made the University of Florida a football nirvana throughout the 1990s, turning Southeastern Conference foes into road kill along the college highway. Even though Spurrier has changed his workday from Saturday afternoons to Sundays and his locale from Gainesville, Fla., to the nation's capital, not much figures to change this fall.
