When Terrell Suggs spoke at last year's mandatory minicamp, his voice barely rose above a whisper. His first in-depth interview since the Super Bowl season was absent of colorful sound bites and shtick, a major departure from Suggs' normal fun-loving and quick-quipping persona. Whether it was intentional or not, the message was sent and it would be reinforced throughout the 2014 season. Suggs, who had become the undisputed defensive leader with Ray Lewis retired and Ed Reed playing elsewhere, was taking his new responsibilities seriously.

The Ravens have signed first-round pick C.J. Mosley , finalizing a four-year deal with the inside linebacker worth $8.787 million on Tuesday. The deal includes a standard fifth-year option and a $4.711 million signing bonus. With Mosley's deal done, that leaves third-round pick Terrence Brooks, a safety out of Florida State, as the team's only unsigned draft pick. Mosley -- one of the top inside linebackers in the draft and aplayer the Ravens were pleased to see still on the board at No. 17 -- is expected to challenge second-year player Arthur Brown for the starting weak-side linebacker role alongside Daryl Smith.

Maryland linebacker Abner Logan has been placed on disciplinary probation by the university until April 2015, the school announced Friday. While on probation, the rising redshirt sophomore can attend class, practice and work out with the team, but he will not be eligible to play in games. He will have an opportunity to petition for removal of the conditions after Oct. 10. That would be midway through Maryland's season. Logan, a native of Cambridge, Mass.,  had been suspended  this semester for an undisclosed violation of team rules, coach Randy Edsall announced in early April.

I was hoping the Ravens would get Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin at No. 17 overall, but he went to the Dallas Cowboys at No. 16 instead. He could have helped the Ravens offensive line, easily the weakest unit on the team last season. A lot of scouts and draft experts thought Martin was a solid pick, very tough and versatile. The selection of Alabama inside linebacker C.J. Mosley is a good pick. Initially, I didn't like it because the Ravens needed more immediate help at both the offensive line and at free safety.

Retired middle linebacker Rolando McClain had a shaky workout in front of Ravens' officials today, leaving his future with the team in doubt. McClain was unable to pass the team's conditioning test and showed considerable rust during drills, according to team sources. However, his struggles didn't come as a huge surprise to Ravens' officials since McClain hasn't played in an NFL game since late in the 2012 season. It's unclear if the Ravens will revisit the situation and give McClain another workout at a later date, allowing him more of an opportunity to get in football shape, or if they are officially ready to move on from the oft-troubled linebacker.

Former NFL and University of Maryland linebacker Shawne Merriman signed a contract with WWE late last week, ending months of speculation and adding another Terps player to the wrestling world. In November, Merriman had a workout at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., but it seemed like nothing developed and a contract wasn't offered at the time. But then Merriman took part in WrestleMania weekend, including appearing on camera in WWE's preshow panel for WrestleMania, as well as WWE Raw on Monday.

Edsall also said backup defensive lineman Nate Clarke underwent knee surgery this week and "I don't think he'll be ready for the season. " There was better news on the injury front from top receivers Deon Long and Stefon Diggs, who have spent the offseason recovering from lower-leg fractures suffered sustained Oct. 19 at Wake Forest.

Middle linebacker  Rolando McClain  has said on his Twitter page that he plans on coming back and playing in the 2014 season. The  Ravens  still hold his contractual rights, but it doesn't sound like they are sweating McClain's decision. John Harbaugh said Tuesday that he hasn't spoken to the former University of Alabama standout, who retired nearly a month after he signed with the Ravens last April, and the Ravens coach is unsure whether the 24-year-old plans to play or not.   “I have not had discussions with Rolando personally.
