The Ravens meet Sunday with LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry, one of the better and tougher receiver prospects in the NFL draft. The meeting is expected to include coach John Harbaugh. Landry caught a career-high 77 passes for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior, excelling on third downs as a clutch player capable of making acrobatic, one-handed catches and showing no fear going over the middle to catch passes in heavy traffic. What he's lacked is consistency, though. He excelled on third downs as the nation's leader in third-down production, piling up 453 yards and six touchdowns and Landry has drawn comparisons from draft analysts to former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker.

McCormick & Schmick's emerged in the 1970s as a reliable seafood restaurant for business travelers. Acquired this year by Landry's, the giant Houston-based "diversified restaurant, hospitality and entertainment company," the restaurant is undergoing a midlife makeover. McCormick & Schmick's has restyled its menu, its mission and even its name. The restaurant's full name, printed on the menu, is now McCormick & Schmick's Seafood & Steaks. Fish still gets top billing, but there are competing players.

Dawan Landry was such a pleasant surprise as a rookie with the Ravens last season that he received the biggest bonus the NFL provides through its performance-based pay subsidy, more than doubling his base salary of $275,000. A fifth-round draft choice out of Georgia Tech, Landry beat out Gerome Sapp for a starting safety job and had 89 tackles and five interceptions, the most of any rookie last season, tying Ed Reed's franchise record for a first-year player. The circumstances for Landry this season have been a lot different, and so have the results, at least those that can be measured on the stat sheet.

Landry's propensity for throwing his 6-foot, 210-pound body at running backs and receivers during training camp seems to have answered questions about the neck injury that sidelined him for most of last season. Question: : Has it been difficult to put the memory of that game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 in the past? Answer: : It's been real easy for me to put that behind me. I've been cleared to play, I've been having fun out here, so that's the past. Q: : Is there anything that will give you pause?

It was like going to a new school for the first time, only Dawan Landry came into Jacksonville with his status already set. He was coming in to start, to be a part of Jacksonville's great defensive rebuild. "I was kind of nervous, not knowing what to expect," Landry said. " ... The whole organization welcomed me with open arms. Have a lot of players willing to learn and coaches that's willing to [listen to players]. " Landry brought leadership and veteran safety experience -- something that was lacking last year -- to the Jaguars' secondary.

Dawan Landry saw the writing on the wall. After the Ravens locked up kicker Billy Cundiff and punter Sam Koch to long-term deals and with the organization seeking to extend contracts with defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and right guard Marshal Yanda, Landry, a strong safety who had started for the team since being drafted in the fifth round in 2006, understood that he wasn't going to be a high priority in the offseason. That's why Landry - who agreed to a five-year, $27.5 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Ravens' opponent on Monday night - said he wasn't disappointed that the organization didn't make a stronger effort to retain him. “No, not really, because I knew at the same time they had a lot of guys up [for a new contract]

— Ed Reed cracked a wide smile as he listened to running back Willis McGahee, whose locker neighbored Reed's in the visiting locker room at Arrowhead Stadium, recount to the media his 25-yard touchdown dash through the heart of the defense that cemented the Ravens' 30-7 thrashing of the Kansas City Chiefs in an AFC wild-card playoff game Sunday. Moments later, when it was Reed's turn to talk to reporters huddled around his locker, the mood was discernibly sadder. It was the first time Reed had spoken publicly since news emerged late Friday that his younger brother had gone missing in Louisiana after jumping into the Mississippi River while eluding police.

The Ravens found a replacement for injured fullback Le'Ron McClain on Tuesday, signing free agent Jason McKie , who spent seven years with the Chicago Bears. To make room for McKie on the roster, general manager Ozzie Newsome announced the team had released safety Ken Hamlin . McKie, 5 feet 11 and 247 pounds, played with the Bears from 2003 to 2009. He started 11 of 16 games in 2009 with Chicago and was released last March. In 88 career games, including 47 starts, he contributed on goal-line offense, catching passes and blocking.

As Le'Ron McClain trudged toward the locker room exit Sunday evening, the Ravens' Pro Bowl fullback wore a walking boot on his lower left leg and a grimace on his face. "Got to play Sunday against Pittsburgh," he said through a forced smile. McClain suffered a sprained left ankle -- perhaps the most serious Ravens injury in a 17-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- when he was rolled up while blocking on a kickoff return with about four minutes left in the first half. But he wasn't alone.

Toward the end of Thursday's morning practice, several young autograph seekers at Ravens training camp tried to get Dawan Landry's attention by calling him "Mr.Landry. " The strong safety is beginning to get accorded a similar level of respect by his teammates. Landry's ferocious tackles have revalidated his nickname, "Whop" -- the sound his pads make when he barrels into a ball carrier -- and earned a couple of teammates a brief stay on the sideline. Last Friday morning, Landry split Willis McGahee's bottom lip, and the running back missed the rest of the session before returning in the afternoon.
