RED-ZONE SUCCESS The first full-team exercise involved the offense starting from inside the defense's 20-yard line. The first offense fared well, scoring touchdowns on four of nine snaps. The second offense scored twice on 10 snaps, including back-to-back touchdown passes from quarterback Tyrod Taylor to wide receivers LaQuan Williams and Dorian Graham. DEFENSIVE HIGHLIGHTS That didn't mean that the offense had its way with the defense. Cornerback Lardarius Webb and rookie safety Omar Brown each came away with an interception, inside linebacker Ray Lewis and free safety Ed Reed almost got a pick of their own, and inside linebacker Ricky Brown and rookie safety Cyhl Quarles split a sack of Taylor.

By now, the Ravens' 2014 regular-season schedule has been sufficiently dissected . And yet, it surprises me a little bit that I'm still hearing from some fans that think the schedule sets up poorly for the Ravens. Look, there's no such thing as an ideal schedule. All 32 teams have challenging stretches or difficult matchups. But all-in-all, I think the Ravens got a pretty favorable draw in terms of who they play, and when and where they play them. I'm not sure it's preferable to be facing the other AFC North teams the first three weeks of the season, but I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing.

LaQuan Williams was deactivated for the first time prior to the Ravens' 24-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns last Sunday, but the rookie wide receiver took the move in stride. Asked if he was surprised to be a healthy scratch, the undrafted free agent from the University of Maryland said, “Kind of, but not really. We needed an extra linebacker, and we were deep at receiver. So that's how it worked out.” Williams has caught four passes for 46 yards thus far and has been targeted 12 times.

Free agent LaQuan Williams , a wide receiver out of Maryland who made the 2011 Ravens as an undrafted free agent and played parts of two seasons with the organization, is re-signing with the team. “Feels good to be back home Raven Nation,” Williams wrote on his Twitter account. The 25-year-old will agree to a one-year deal. Williams, who played his high school football at Poly, has been out of the NFL since last November and hasn't played in a regular-season game since the 2012 season.

LaQuan Williams defied the odds when he made the Ravens' active roster in September as an undrafted rookie. He's making sure that accomplishment isn't his only one. The wide receiver caught two passes for 28 yards in the team's 23-20 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night, and both receptions were long enough to gain first downs. It was the first multi-catch game of his young career. “His story … it's a pretty amazing thing,” coach John Harbaugh said during his weekly briefing Monday.

LaQuan Williams followed a still-developing rookie campaign in which he caught four passes for 46 yards with a solid preseason in which he made six grabs for 76 yards and one touchdown and appeared poised to be the Ravens' No. 4 wide receiver. But the former Poly and University of Maryland product has been deactivated for each of the Ravens' first two contests in 2012, forced to watch from the sideline as fellow-second-year veteran Tandon Doss has become the No. 4 wideout. If Williams is disappointed by the inactivity, he's not showing it. “There's no frustration,” he said after Friday's practice.

Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams, an undrafted rookie free agent from Maryland, had the first multi-catch game of his career in Sunday night's 23-20 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The second of his two receptions came as the Ravens embarked on their 92-yard, game-winning touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. The 13-yard gain moved the chains for a first down. “It's just a great feeling being out there and having a chance to make a play, especially in such a key game,” Williams said before Thursday's practice.

Wide receiver Torrey Smith was sidelined with a sprained right ankle Friday night, thrusting former Maryland teammate LaQuan Williams into the starting lineup for the Ravens' 27-12 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions. Quarterback Joe Flacco made sure Williams made the most of the opportunity. He targeted the second-year wideout a team-high six times, including four looks on the team's second drive of the game. The sequence featured two tries at the end zone, one of which was well within Williams' grasp.

Darron Edwards can clearly see his path to the NFL. The former Dunbar star and Arkansas State cornerback probably won't be a first- or second-day draft choice next month. But after watching his good friend LaQuan Williams go from undrafted wide receiver to integral special teams player for one of the NFL's premier franchises, Edwards has a blueprint to follow.    “Just growing up with LaQuan, me and him have known each other since we were nine or 10 years old, playing at Northwood,” Edwards said of his Pop Warner football days with the Ravens receiver.

Maryland special teams standout LaQuan Williams plans to race out onto the field at Miami's Sun Life Stadium on Saturday, proudly wearing his helmet. But it won't be the helmet you might think. Williams, who doubles as a wide receiver, said Tuesday that he'll make his entrance wearing military-style headgear given to him by an assistant coach in recognition of his special teams play in last week's 62-14 win over Wake Forest. "I got the war helmet," said Williams, a Poly graduate.

SETTING THE SCENE : Saturday's outdoor practice started at 2:45 p.m. and ended at 5:20. The sun was out for most of the workout with temperatures hovering in the high 70's. Players were in full pads after having Friday off from practice following Thursday's 27-23 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. BELOW AVERAGE JOE :  It was not Joe Flacco's finest practice as the quarterback often was relegated to chasing down a defender who had just intercepted him, or hurling expletives in the air out of frustration.

Wide receiver LaQuan Williams could have used any number of words to describe his most impactful performance since joining the Ravens before the 2011 season. The one he chose was "relieving. " “Once you work so hard to try to do something and then you see how it pans out, that's why I said it's relieving,” Williams said. The former Poly and University of Maryland standout starred on both offense and special teams in the Ravens' preseason-opening 44-16 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night at Raymond James Stadium.

Two years ago, wide receiver LaQuan Williams was an undrafted free agent coming into Ravens training camp, getting advice and mentorship from former Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin on how to impress coaches and showcase his skills. Williams was fighting for a spot on the team either as a receiver or a return specialist, but with a thin receiving corps - Derrick Mason had just been released - and kick return specialist David Reed injured, chances were in Williams' favor. When final cuts came, Williams found his name on the 53-man roster thanks to his kick return abilities and Boldin's advice.

Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams sat calmly at the Baltimore Convention Center on Saturday as a tattoo artist buzzed at his shoulder, sketching out the latest design on the already well-inked torso. Williams and the artist, who goes by the name Jonny Metropolis, have totaled at least a day together in a similar fashion after getting connected through the photo-sharing service Instagram. On Saturday, Metropolis was working on theatrical masks to represent the good times and the bad times in Williams' life.

Ravens reserve wide receiver LaQuan Williams' spirit brought him to this day, reaching football's ultimate game in just his second NFL season. Unfortunately for Williams, the former University of Maryland and Poly High School standout won't actually be playing against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII at New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Williams was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury suffered in the regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Each Sunday, Ralph Friedgen flips through the NFL games on television, looking for kids he coached at the University of Maryland. Watching them play now brings him back, maybe to a practice where he pulled one of them aside for one-on-one teaching or to quiet moment away from the field. He thinks about how they've grown. Friedgen, who was forced into retirement following the 2010 season, will have three former players in New Orleans for Sunday's Super Bowl: Vernon Davis, a veteran tight end and star for the San Francisco 49ers; wide receiver Torrey Smith, who has become one of the most exciting playmakers for the Ravens; and his teammate and Baltimore native LaQuan Williams, an important special teams player before being sidelined with a hamstring injury late in the season.

Former Ravens defensive tackle and current Poly coach Larry Webster brought more than 60 players from the Engineers' varsity, junior varsity and freshmen squads to Tuesday's practice at the Ravens' training complex in Owings Mills. And while the youngsters were mesmerized by the likes of Ray Rice, Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, they also got a chance to meet wide receiver LaQuan Williams, a former Engineer himself. If the student-athletes were excited about Williams, he felt the same way about their visit.

The Ravens activated the veteran linebacker from the injured reserve with a designation to return list on Wednesday, a procedural move that makes him eligible to play in the opening round of the playoffs next week against either the Bengals or Indianapolis Colts.

It took just three games, but Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones has already surpassed the production that the team got from its No. 3 receiver spot last season. With three catches for 86 yards in the 31-30 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday night, Jones now had seven catches for 153 receiving yards and a touchdown. In 2011, the Ravens got just eight catches for 120 yards and no touchdowns from Lee Evans, whom they acquired from the Buffalo Bills in a late-summer trade, and LaQuan Williams, who subbed while Evans was sidelined with an ankle injury -- and those eight catches came on 38 total targets.
