While his fellow defensive backs chase after Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver A.J. Green and fourth-year wide-outs Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell on Sunday, Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard will keep his eyes on Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati's second-year tight end. “He's very athletic. The guy can catch, he can run, he can block,” Pollard said. “He's willing to stick his nose in there, so we have to make sure we know where he's at.” Gresham is tied for second on the Bengals with 29 receptions, and his four touchdown catches are second to Green, who has six in nine games.

Jermaine Gresham, Demaryius Thomas and Rob Gronkowski, three possible first-round targets for the Ravens, carry tremendous potential into Thursday's NFL draft, as well as an asterisk. They could become Pro Bowl pass catchers, the top targets in the NFL for the next decade. Or they could never develop into starters. Or they could never play a snap in the league. Injury concerns have been difficult to shake for these three gifted prospects and represent the main reason why one, if not all, could be available at the Ravens' 25th overall pick.

J. Waszgis had been earmarked for everyday play.

Poly's Lynnea Gresham had one role to play in last night's volleyball match against three-time defending Baltimore City champ Western - to serve well. In a match in which both teams combined for 39 service errors, Gresham strung together six strong serves to help the visiting Engineers emerge with a 15-11, 6-15, 16-14, 15-7 upset in a city non-division meeting. Although no one knew exactly how long it had been since Poly had beaten the Doves, it could have been as long as 10 years. Poly won its last city title in 1990 with a victory over Western.

It's time for Baltimore to claim William Lindsay Gresham as one of the city's literary native sons and a proper heir to Edgar Allan Poe — and not just because he was born here in 1909. He fits the funk-art aspect of this town as well as James M. Cain or John Waters. In the mid-1940s, he wrote his best book, "Nightmare Alley," about the rise of a ruthless mentalist from carnival hand to spiritual guru, and his fall back to the worst possible sideshow. It was so compelling, original and successful that one of the biggest Hollywood stars of his day, Tyrone Power, begged for the lead role and pushed his studio to produce it. Later audiences would get to know the novel either from that potent, underrated film or from a gaudy, cheap paperback featuring a voluptuous blonde in a two-piece scarlet costume.

S ome NFL teams have backed off Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham because of a past knee injury, but there are a number of draft experts predicting the Ravens will take him with the No. 25 overall pick. Like most teams, the Ravens have examined Gresham repeatedly, much as they did running back Jamal Lewis shortly before they made him the No. 5 pick in the 2000 draft out of Tennessee. Like Gresham, Lewis had a knee problem and surgery late in his college career. Gresham says he is completely healthy from surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee that forced him to miss last season.

- Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham is pretty certain his knee - which he injured in 2009, forcing him to miss his final season with the Sooners - is now 100 percent and no longer an issue. "I've been yanked and tugged on, and not one doctor said anything bad about it," Gresham said. "They said the knee's great and I'm good to go." That's good news to NFL teams trying to decide whether to use a first-round pick on Gresham, a list that might include the Ravens. Even though he didn't play last season, Gresham is still rated as the top tight end in the draft by virtually everyone, and the Ravens need to find a replacement for an aging Todd Heap sooner rather than later.

In the 1970s, Jacci Gresham says, most tattoos were done in just one or two shades of ink. "I would see these butterflies and roses that would just have two colors - get 'em in, get 'em out. Bam, that's a wrap," recalls Gresham, who is one of the first black women to gain prominence as a tattoo artist. "But you can make some stuff look pretty. I used to do - and still do - five, six colors whenever I can." Using the full spectrum - it's just one way tattooing has evolved over the years.

Gresham Jr., through circumstantial evidence, to the two pipe bombs planted in a Norfolk, Va., chemical tank farm Feb. 4, according to testimony in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.Special Agent Jeffrey A. Lampinsky testified at a preliminary hearing late yesterday that the FBI found white explosive powder in the interior carpet and the trunk of Gresham's 1988 Jaguar.The powder matched that contained in one of the unexploded bombs, the agent said.Lampinsky said the powder could support a conclusion that Gresham, of Ellicott City, made and transported the bombs.

Charles Edward Gresham Jr. seems an unlikely villain. His Ellicott City neighbors consider the former college educator pleasant and easy-going.Yet, federal prosecutors say, Gresham allegedly sent fear through an already tense nation by trying to blow up two chemical tanks in Norfolk, Va., at a time when the Persian Gulf war has triggered concern about terrorism.Gresham and two Arizona men are charged with conspiring to plant pipe bombs on the tanks in an insurance fraud scheme. Prosecutors say Gresham owned 2.2 million gallons of sodium hydrosulfide, a flammable bleaching agent, that were stored in a tank he leased and that the three were trying to destroy the tanks to collect insurance money and get rid of the unmarketable chemical.
