Former disgruntled Ravens left offensive tackle Jared Gaither may have worn out his welcome in San Diego as well. During his stay in Baltimore, Gaither was often criticized for his work ethic, especially during the offseason. Apparently, the pattern for the former Maryland standout continues.

Jared Gaither, 21, is set to make his second career start at left offensive tackle Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. But the football phenom was a two-sport star who still yearns to play basketball. You were a Division I recruit in basketball who had orally committed to South Carolina before deciding to concentrate on football. Do you miss basketball? Yeah. We have guys like Chad [Steele, the team's director of media relations who was a power forward at Winthrop] who think they can play basketball.

The Ravens would like to improve their offensive line during the offseason, but the best move they could make in free agency would be re-signing Ben Grubbs, who could soon be one of the top guards available. The Ravens recently said that they have already offered big money to Grubbs -- and there's no reason not to believe that claim -- but if Grubbs, who turns 28 this month, hits the open market, he could be gone for good. Grubbs is widely viewed as one of the top two or three offensive guards in the 2012 free agent class, which includes Carl Nicks of the New Orleans Saints and Evan Mathis of the Philadelphia Eagles.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Starting left tackle Jared Gaither hasn't shown up for the Ravens' voluntary offseason workout program, which has disappointed coach John Harbaugh. The Ravens used a first-round tender on Gaither, a restricted free agent. But Gaither is seeking a new long-term deal. His absence at Ravens headquarters could be a protest over his contract status. "I really believe Jared is going to be a premier offensive tackle in this league," Harbaugh said at the NFL owners meetings.

Early last week, Virginia coach Al Groh invented the word "mammothness" to describe Jared Gaither - Maryland's 6-foot-9, 350-pound offensive tackle - to the local media in Charlottesville. Last year, Gaither took the majority of his snaps at left tackle and was matched up against Virginia defensive end Chris Long. He manhandled Long and helped pave the way for the Terps' 570 yards of total offense in their 45-33 win over the Cavaliers. Because Gaither was moved to right tackle this season, senior Stephon Heyer was going head-to-head with Long on Saturday - until Terps coach Ralph Friedgen replaced him with Gaither and put Dane Randolph in at right tackle.

Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher has switched positions in each of his three seasons in the NFL. In 2009, the team's first-round draft pick, who was a left tackle at Mississippi, played right tackle in his rookie season. A year later, the Jared Gaither saga prompted the Ravens to move him to left tackle. After starting 16 games on the blind side, Oher was shuffled back to right tackle in 2011 when Bryant McKinnie was signed. In an appearance last week on “ The Norris & Davis Show ” on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore, Oher said that he would play whatever position on the offensive line the Ravens ask him to play.

It has been a strange couple of years for Jared Gaither, who has gone from starting at left tackle in Baltimore to manning the position in San Diego -- with stops in John Harbaugh's doghouse and Kansas City along the way. Gaither is with his second team since he and the Ravens parted ways this past offseason. The offensive tackle signed with the Kansas City Chiefs after the NFL lockout, was released by the Chiefs last month and picked up off the waiver wire by the San Diego Chargers, who have started Gaither the past two games at left tackle.

If you really want to appreciate the violence of football when the Ravens take on the Indianapolis Colts at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday, take your eyes off Ray Rice and Joe Flacco for a second and focus on right guard Marshal Yanda. Watch him from the moment the Ravens break the huddle, the way he sizes up the defense as he walks to the line of scrimmage, then bends his knees and coils into a stance. It's like watching someone load a cannon. When Flacco begins barking his cadence, it's like lighting Yanda's fuse.

The Ravens' love of cornhole has been well-documented since defensive end Cory Redding introduced the popular picnic and tailgate game to the locker room last season. The first-place Ravens have kicked it up a notch this fall by creating an official Ravens cornhole league Twitter account and getting T-shirts made . According to the Twitter account , punter Sam Koch is the reigning champ after beating Michael Oher last month. This week it was revealed that the Ravens aren't the only NFL team tossing bean bags around its locker room.

As remarkable as the demolition of Pittsburgh's proud defense was, the Ravens' offensive success on opening day was noteworthy for another reason: It marked the debut of their new zone blocking scheme. What had the potential to be a major issue early for the Ravens — their offensive line was in a serious state of flux — instead became a major advantage. Who knew that new left tackle Bryant McKinnie didn't need any preseason snaps to handle the Steelers' James Harrison and open big holes for running back Ray Rice?

In the rough-and-tumble world of the NFL, the difference between playing the left and right tackle positions on the offensive line is usually millions of dollars and a certain amount of prestige. But for the Ravens' Michael Oher, ceding the left tackle spot to newly-signed Bryant McKinnie and returning to right tackle could result in something even greater: wins and possibly the Lombardi Trophy. "I'm a football player," Oher said after the team's 34-31 win against the Washington Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday night.
