Four years later, Brian Kinchen still wonders: Was he dreaming, or did the New England Patriots really coax a washed-up player out of retirement to help them win the February 2004 Super Bowl? The answer sits in a small cherry wood case on the desk in his home in Baton Rouge, La. The championship ring brightens the whole room. "If my story were a movie script, no one would believe it," said Kinchen, 42. A journeyman tight end and center, he was cut in 2000 after 13 years, including three seasons with the Ravens (1996-1998)

Brian Kinchen's strange, hard-luck 1998 season continues.Just when the Ravens' veteran tight end/snapper had worked his way back into the lineup after overcoming a torn tendon in his left thumb, Kinchen suffered another bad break -- on his left index finger.Not long after Kinchen had snapped on a first-quarter extra point, marking his first special teams snap since early in camp, he fractured his finger covering a punt."I don't even know how it happened. I hit a guy and blacked out. My main concern was getting off the field," Kinchen said.

Brian Kinchen has survived in the NFL by being versatile. He's an accomplished long snapper, a steady performer on special teams, and he was good enough to start 12 games at tight end for the Cleveland Browns last year.And yet, after a 1995 season in which he caught only 20 passes and did not score a touchdown, Kinchen felt unfulfilled. Such was life in former coach Bill Belichick's run-oriented offense, which often featured two tight ends who mainly used their hands for one task."The job of a tight end is to be a blocker and a receiver.

Tight end Brian Kinchen and defensive end Mike Frederick, two of the Ravens' top reserve players, returned to practice yesterday.Kinchen practiced for the first time since suffering a thumb injury in the first week of training camp. Kinchen, despite staff recommendations that he not do so, practiced several routes, blocking patterns and long snaps. He also wore a cast."They weren't too gung-ho about it," Kinchen said. "The thing is that I feel well. I am not in pain. My thumb never really gave me any pain besides during the surgery.

Ravens tight end Brian Kinchen was beginning to feel like an invisible player.Two years ago, Kinchen caught a career-high 55 passes. But after Eric Green arrived in 1996 and got healthy last year, Kinchen's role in the offense never stopped shrinking. Until yesterday, Kinchen had only appeared occasionally in a two-tight-end set, and had not touched the ball on offense.That changed after Green left the game in the first half with a punctured lung. Suddenly, the 11-year veteran from LSU was back in the game plan.

Every year a team tries to cut Brian Kinchen, whether it's the Miami Dolphins, the Cleveland Browns or the Ravens.Kinchen, 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds, is not your prototype tight end. He is either too short, not big enough or too slow. Or he can't block or run deep routes . . .It's always something."I've gotten used to it," said Kinchen. "Every year I get the runaround about my status, so I expect it. But if I get a level playing field, I expect to win."Kinchen is a winner because he is a survivor of eight years in the NFL after being selected in the 12th round by the Dolphins in 1988.

After speaking to an assembly of about 100 fourth- and fifth-graders, Kinchen passed out pamphlets with an autographed picture of him in uniform on the cover.
