The Carroll County commissioners finally gave James Harris what he wanted yesterday when they officially wiped away - from the county's master plan - the portion of the long-planned Westminster Bypass that would have run through his property. Harris owns a 100-acre farm on the outskirts of the city that has been included in every bypass option proposed since 1962. He has long accused the city and county of holding hostage his land, which he calls his retirement insurance. After yesterday's vote, Harris said he was relieved to see his portion of the bypass deleted from the county's master plan, its blueprint to guide development.

Blocking a potential interview with a competing team, the Jacksonville Jaguars moved swiftly in signing James Harris as their vice president of player personnel yesterday. Harris, the Ravens' pro personnel director since 1997, was to interview for the Seattle Seahawks' general manager position today but instead flew to Jacksonville on Wednesday night and agreed to a contract yesterday morning. The hiring comes two weeks after the Jaguars initiated their search - one in which Ravens director of college scouting Phil Savage, Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Tom Modrak, former Jacksonville personnel director Rick Reiprish and Harris interviewed for the job. Savage was the team's first choice, but he and Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver could not agree on contract terms late last week.

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.

THERE'S NOTHING more futile than grading the first round of a draft - the NFL's or anyone else's - on the day after. Futile, but fun. And it'll be especially fun around here to watch what Mark Clayton does in a Ravens uniform in the next few years, and what Matt Jones does in Jacksonville's. They were drafted back-to-back. They play, more or less, the same position (at least they could some day). The Jaguars picked one over the other. The Ravens were waiting breathlessly to see which one Jacksonville would take and which it would leave behind.
