Josh Wilson is slated to start at cornerback in the Ravens' showdown against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday night, according to Fabian Washington , the man whom Wilson will replace. "I'm disappointed in myself, happy for Josh, and I'm just going to be sitting back and doing whatever they need me to do," Washington said after Tuesday's practice. Wilson wasn't quite as confident about his newfound status. "I don't know about that," he said. "That's up to Coach [ John ] Harbaugh . I don't think either one of us is going to be able to tell you who's going to start.

Before the start of the 2010 regular season, Josh Wilson walked off the Seattle Seahawks' practice field and was informed that he had been traded to the Ravens. Less than a year later, Wilson, a free agent at the time, picked his next destination, agreeing to a three-year, $13.5 million contract with $9 million guaranteed with the Washington Redskins. But the cornerback looks back at his one season with the Ravens fondly and said he's looking forward to seeing his former teammates this Sunday at FedEx Field in Landover.

COLLEGE PARK - A tattered Topps football card dated 1981 is stashed in Maryland cornerback Josh Wilson's wallet, its edges frayed from time. On it, his late father, a former fullback for Maryland and running back for the Houston Oilers, is captured on the bench with a cup in his hand, looking like he just came off the field. The same picture is tattooed on the left half of Wilson's chest, under the words, "Forever in my heart." "There are still times when I think about it and say, `Man, I wish he was here to see all this,'" Wilson said.

Finding a big, physical cornerback is considered one of the Ravens' top needs. After watching the first round of wide receivers get measured at the NFL scouting combine — 16 of 23 were over 6 feet — it has almost become a necessity. "It seems like the receivers are getting bigger," said Eric DeCosta, the Ravens' director of player personnel. "Smaller corners typically will have a disadvantage going against bigger receivers. If you can get bigger, those guys can be a little more durable and physical.

The Ravens re-signed cornerback Chris Carr on Saturday, reducing the sting of losing a string of their own free agents this week. No one was happier than Carr himself. He broke the news, announcing that he signed a four-year contract with the Ravens. Carr posted on Twitter on Saturday afternoon, "Well [Baltimore]. I'm backkkkkkkkkkkkk! Very excited to finish my career here. " Over the first five days of free agency, the Ravens watched five of their free agents go elsewhere (nose tackle Kelly Gregg, cornerback Josh Wilson, safety Dawan Landry, offensive lineman Chris Chester and receiver Donte' Stallworth)

COLLEGE PARK --Domonique Foxworth stood in an end zone of the practice field at the University of Maryland one afternoon last month, chatting with old friends and keeping a watchful eye on one of his proteges, Josh Wilson, as Wilson and other Terrapins seniors worked out for some NFL assistant coaches. Two years ago, Foxworth was in the same place as Wilson - confident he was going to be drafted, but unsure of when or where he would wind up. "It's different for everybody," said Foxworth, who was a third-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos and has started 12 games at cornerback in his first two seasons.

Domonique Foxworth worked with the Ravens' starting defense for the first time in a couple of weeks, a sign that his surgically repaired knee is improving. Foxworth, who started every game in 2009, missed last season when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on the eve of training camp. "I feel good now. I can finish practice, I think I can finish a game," Foxworth said. "We'll see. I'm definitely not as good as I was. [The knee] doesn't feel as good as it did. … It's about getting my explosion back.

The Ravens locked up their No. 1 priority in free agency by agreeing to a multi-year deal with guard/tackle Marshal Yanda. They are able to negotiate with their own free agents until 6 p.m. Friday; after that, other teams can make their pitches. Here's a ranking of the other 13 unrestricted free agents in terms of priority to the team: 1. Josh Wilson, cornerback: Fans are campaigning for Nnandi Asomugha of the Raiders, but Wilson figures more into the Ravens' price range. The Ravens got great value after trading a fifth-round pick to Seattle for Wilson last year, and the plan wasn't necessarily to rent the former Maryland standout for one season.

In the time it took Josh Wilson to scamper 12 yards to the end zone Monday night in Houston, he went from student to star, from cautious corner to big-play defender. Just like that, the four-month transition that started when the Ravens traded for the veteran cornerback in September got its formal seal of approval. The Maryland native had some awkward moments at first, but his growth has been steady if not spectacular since moving from the Seattle Seahawks back home to the Ravens. "I'm progressing every game," Wilson said Friday.

Cornerback Josh Wilson 's game-ending interception and touchdown return was the coup de grace in the Ravens' overtime victory Monday night, but the player who consistently put the Houston Texans in peril was punter Sam Koch . It was Koch's soaring 58-yard punt — along with a 3-yard loss by Houston returner Jacoby Jones — that pinned the Texans on their 9-yard line in overtime and set the stage for Wilson's dramatic interception two plays later....
