Defensive tackle Larry Webster was released by the Miami Dolphins in April. Nearly 30 days later, he signed with the Cleveland Browns.The Browns didn't use him much during his first game back,but he has played extensively since. Webster is extremely strong against the rush, and his primary job as a pass rusher is to collapse the pocket and not allow the quarterback to step up."He's a good kid who works hard," said Browns coach Bill Belichick. "He just ran into a little trouble in Miami. I think he will do well with a full season under his belt."

Larry Webster arrived at Bloomsburg (Pa.) on a basketball scholarship. Now, after switching sports two years ago, the Elkton native is leaving the Division II school as a burgeoning NFL draft prospect. Teams are intrigued by Webster, 6 feet 6 and a lean 252 pounds, because of his pass rushing potential and athleticism. In two seasons on the football team, he piled up 88 tackles, 26 sacks, 31 tackles for losses, an interception and three forced fumbles. He also caught two touchdowns lining up at tight end and returned a blocked punt for a touchdown.

Larry Webster understands why people tend to forget about him. For most of his six NFL seasons, Webster has lived fairly anonymously in the game's trenches. For most of his career, he has been a backup on someone's defensive line.Ravens officials say a change is in order for Webster. They say the replacement for tackle James Jones, who gave them two outstanding seasons before leaving for Detroit via free agency in February, is sitting right here in the 6-foot-5, 300-pound form of Webster.

Defensive tackle Larry Webster is thankful for the Ravens, and the Ravens are thankful for Larry Webster.In the nearly four full seasons the Ravens have been in Baltimore, Webster may be the team's biggest success story. He is a local kid who became a star at the state's largest university. He was drafted, cut and suspended twice for violating the NFL's alcohol and substance-abuse policy.But now he is a starter having his best season. He's 12th on the team in tackles, but No. 1 in humility.

In a chart of area prospects for the National Football League draft in yesterday's editions, Mitch Suplee's hometown was incorrectly listed as Edgewood. Suplee is from Edgewater.The Sun regrets the error.By the end of the 1988 college football season, Eric Jonassen thought he had it all. He had a national championship ring, was a starting offensive tackle for Penn State as a sophomore, and a career in the National Football League seemed almost certain.A year later, it all seemed to disappear.

TAMPA, Fla. -- From the big-money seats for this year's Super Bowl -- the 50-yard line, 20 rows up, at sun-splashed Raymond James Stadium -- Larry Webster looked down upon the supreme madness of hundreds of reporters, videographers and sound engineers trying to get his teammate, Ray Lewis, to speak again of the nightmare after last year's game in Atlanta. The reporters pushed forward, in a massive V formation, like acolytes at an inquisition. Webster, who, like Lewis, came close to seeing his own football career end forever in 2000 because of "off-field problems," watched the scene from a safe distance through the lens of a camcorder.

Larry and Linda Webster have spent more than two decades transforming a dusty cornfield into 20 acres of lush gardens that they will show off tomorrow to about 700 guests on the annual Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage. For the past few weeks, the Websters have been planting, pruning, and mulching to prepare their grounds to be one of 12 stops on the Carroll County segment of the tour. The pilgrimage, which includes more than 100 homes and gardens throughout the state, moves Saturday to horse country in Baltimore and Harford counties, the last stops on the 68th annual tour that began April 23 in Kent County, then moved to Calvert and continued through Howard County last week.

THE SIGNS are encouraging, and the potential is unlimited. But the Ravens' defensive line will learn a lot about itself today when the team plays the Pittsburgh Steelers at Ravens Stadium. The Ravens have been one of the NFL's biggest surprise stories of the 2002 season, but if they want to become No. 1 in the AFC North, the road to the top runs through the Steelers' offensive line. Many pro personnel directors believe Pittsburgh is the most talented team in the AFC with the best offensive line in the league.

Jermaine Lewis thought his workload in tomorrow's AFC wild-card game might not include filling in at wide receiver, but the return ace will have another full plate of responsibility against the Miami Dolphins at Pro Player Stadium, because Patrick Johnson will most likely be on the sideline for the 12th straight game. Lewis has seen spot duty at wide receiver in place of Johnson, who missed the last 11 games of the regular season with a fractured left clavicle. The fourth-year pro returned to the game plan this week, but coach Brian Billick said Johnson will probably not be able to play after developing plantar fasciitis in one of his feet Thursday.

SCOUTING REPORT Ravens rushing vs. Bengals run defense - BENGALS The Ravens set a team record for fewest rushing attempts in a game (13) last Sunday night. The team will move tailback Terry Allen back into the starting lineup and rotate Moe Williams in passing situations. Over the past six games, the Ravens are averaging only 3.2 yards per carry and holding the ball for 27 of the game's 60 minutes. Cincinnati, which ranks 13th against the run, relies on linebackers Takeo Spikes and Brian Simmons to slide off blocks and make the plays.

COLLEGE PARK -- Four years after he last performed as a battering ram for Elkton High's Golden Elks, Larry Webster is still big news in Cecil County.Mention the name to the switchboard operator at his alma mater and she instantly recalls the first time she saw him. Webster was a freshman then, but he was so big she thought he had to be a senior.Mention the name to his old football coach and a telephone conversation quickly becomes a singing telegram. Ed Langan can't say enough nice things about his former fullback and defensive tackle.

Derek Homer knows it may be his job to protect the lead. So if the Ravens call on Homer in the fourth quarter of tonight's preseason game in Philadelphia as expected, the rookie free agent said he will be ready. "You look for those situations," said Homer, who likely will follow Jason Brookins and Chris Barnes in the running back rotation. "In this game, you never know what is going to happen. You have to be prepared for all situations, and I'm going to be very well prepared." Homer played fullback last year at Kentucky, where he was used primarily as a receiver.
