With 12 career return touchdowns, Ed Reed has earned a reputation for being a tough man to get a grasp on. And this offseason, far from a football field, the Ravens safety has been equally as elusive when it comes to his playing status. Reed wiggled away again Wednesday night. Appearing on Baltimore radio station 105.7 The Fan, Reed, whose cryptic comments on Twitter over the weekend have been scrutinized by national media and curious fans, was noncommittal about his status for the upcoming season.

It's beginning to look as if Irv Pankey's 12-year career as an offensive tackle on the Los Angeles Rams is over.Pankey's 43-day holdout continued yesterday, and Rams coach John Robinson named Robert Jenkins the starter at left tackle and said Gerald Perry would also get some playing time in Sunday's season-opener against the Phoenix Cardinals.A starter since 1981, Pankey (Aberdeen) has said he wants something approaching center Tom Newberry's $750,000-a-year contract. If the Rams won't raise their $500,000-a-year offer, Pankey said, he wants to be traded.

A day after skipping a committee vote on same-sex marriage, two delegates said Wednesday that they are prepared to register their positions on the issue. But the House Judiciary Committee had no immediate plans to schedule a new vote. Dels. Jill Carter and Tiffany Alston — two sponsors of the House bill — threw a wrench into what was to have been a majority vote on the committee to send the divisive issue to the full House of Delegates. The civil marriage proposal won Senate approval last week.

There must be a mistake. Ravens defensive tackle Tony Siragusa might consider eating out, but he wouldn't consider holding out, would he? Not according to one of his agents, Terry Lavenstein, who engaged in lawyer-speak yesterday when asked to describe the stunt that Siragusa is about to pull. "I don't categorize it as a holdout," Lavenstein said. "Traditionally, when we think of the term 'holdout,' we think of a guy holding out of training camp. "He's failing to attend minicamp, and his reason for failing to come to minicamp is that he's in a contract dispute with the Baltimore Ravens.

News item: Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs will end his contract holdout today and report to the team's Owings Mills training complex, where he'll sign his $8.5 million franchise tender. My take: Does anyone think it was a coincidence that he informed the team of his plans to report on Friday, the day the Ravens broke camp in Westminster? News item: The 10-year, $20 million promotional deal the Green Bay Packers offered Brett Favre included a line of Favre clothing, merchandise and autographed collectibles.

Some of the photos are fresh from the school photographer, some have faded over time -- but not in Kyung Kim's memory. "This one, she's got two kids now," the shopkeeper said fondly, pointing to one pigtailed little girl and then another, "and this one, she's got three." The photos fill one wall of Sun Grocery and have rounded the corner and started spilling onto the adjacent one. School pictures, graduation pictures, wedding pictures and baby pictures track the lives of the store's customers, and they're the first sign that this isn't your typical small, inner-city store where the customer-shopkeeper relationship is transacted between a thick wall of Plexiglas and mistrust.

With defensive end-linebacker Terrell Suggs beginning what could be a lengthy holdout, the Ravens defense won't have the same time to jell. But defensive coordinator Rex Ryan said Suggs' absence might not be hurting just the Ravens. "Does it hurt him? That's what you're always worrying about," Ryan said. "I know he's working out, but there's nothing like football shape." Suggs skipped the start of training camp to protest the franchise tag, which kept him from becoming a free agent this offseason.

The Miami Dolphins signed holdout kicker Pete Stoyanovich yesterday, leaving them with one unsigned player.Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Stoyanovich reportedly had been asking for about $500,000 over two years, and both sides were close.Charlie Baumann took Stoyanovich's place in Sunday's loss to Buffalo, and his agents had requested a trade. But his 21-for-25 record last year was a valuable asset.The third-year pro will not dress for tomorrow's home game against Indianapolis, and the team is seeking a two-week roster exemption, spokesman Rodney Wood said.

The animal cruelty trial of twins Travers and Tremayne Johnson ended in a mistrial Monday after 11 jurors were unable to convince the single holdout that the brothers had set fire to the dog that came to be known as "Phoenix. " The Johnsons smiled faintly as the result was read about 6:30 p.m., after three full days of jury deliberation that followed a five-day trial. Their supporters high-fived each other quietly on one side of the gallery behind them; across the aisle, animal activists stared ahead, mostly stone-faced.

The final holdouts standing in the way of a $1.4 billion development planned in Baltimore's Westport neighborhood must pack this weekend and move off the property by tomorrow, but they haven't been going quietly. The owners of a concrete company on the Westport site, Dennis and Gerry Brice, say the move could put an end to their 40-employee business. They believe the city should provide $1.9 million in financial assistance to help them relocate, pointing to the fact that the City Council is considering a $90 million bond to build and improve infrastructure supporting the planned development.

The Sun, like many newspapers, is shifting more content from its traditional print edition to its Web site. Economic pressures have forced newspapers to reduce their print content, and editors are trying to mitigate that loss by posting this missing material on their Web sites. These moves also appeal to journalists already worried about growing competition from Internet news sources. But some print edition readers can't or won't use the Internet and are frustrated because certain of their favorite items have been deleted from their newspaper.

Not so long ago or far away, there were record stores, where collections of music recorded on vinyl LP (long-playing) discs were sold in artful cardboard albums. They were funky havens, the air sometimes thick with the scent of strawberry incense, and music pumped through the speakers all day. The folks who worked there - perhaps a little quirky but usually approachable - could tell you almost anything you wanted to know about the latest sounds. Music lovers would take the albums they purchased home, mount the vinyl discs on turntables and savor the intimacy and physicality of placing the needle in the first groove, listening to the faint background hum of the amp as they studied the album art. But then big-box stores like Best Buy and Circuit City squeezed these friendly neighborhood shops with their larger selections and lower prices of high-quality compact discs.

CHICAGO -- Does he really know what he is risking? That seems to be the key question because Curtis Enis isn't acting like he much cares.His behavior is, if nothing else, age appropriate. At 22, there are no what-if's, only why-not's. Life is full of possibilities, particularly when you are the fifth draft pick in the National Football League and an almost-millionaire. But almost is the operative word here.Will he get hit by a bus tomorrow? Probably not. Might he trip up the stairs and blow out a knee?

Brodrick Bunkley agreed to a six-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday, ending the first-round pick's two-week holdout. Bunkley, the 14th overall selection in the NFL draft, agreed to a deal worth $13 million, according to an NFL official. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because terms weren't publicly disclosed, said $10 million of that money is guaranteed, and the maximum value of the contract could reach $25-$30 million with incentives. The 6-foot-2, 300-pound defensive tackle missed 16 days of camp, and won't play in tomorrow's game against Oakland.
