The Green Bay Packers signed former Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey to their active roster Monday. Dorsey, who was selected by the Packers in the seventh round of last year's draft, spent the first five weeks of this season on Green Bay's practice squad after spending last year on the team's injured reserve because of a toe injury. Dorsey, who had five catches for 52 yards for Green Bay during the preseason, only had 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at Maryland in 2013.

After reading his op-ed ( "Brown: I will enforce gun safety law," Sept. 4), I have some questions I would like Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown to answer. How does disarming law-abiding citizens protect anyone and not create a scenario in which citizens are not able to defend themselves? What makes him believe that any criminal who is intending on harming or murdering someone is concerned with what the gun laws allow? How many murders in the state of Maryland in the last year were committed with these now banned rifles?

In 2013, I retired as the Commander of the Maryland State Police Licensing Division. Before that, I ran the Maryland State Police Firearms Enforcement Section and the Gang Enforcement Unit. I was also a homicide investigator, drug investigator and criminal investigator for most of my career. I understand crime and I understand violence. I strongly support efforts to reduce violence in the state of Maryland. But the fact is that we are not focusing on real solutions. I can assure you that bad laws do not make us any safer.

Maryland football players and coaches spent Sunday breaking down and critiquing their 52-24 loss Saturday to Ohio State at Byrd Stadium. Now the Terps hope to take advantage of their bye week before preparing for their Oct. 18 home game against Iowa. In particular, Maryland (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten Conference) will look to get as healthy as possible. Several players, including starting outside linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) and reserve defensive backs Zach Dancel and Daniel Ezeagwu, missed Saturday's game against the Buckeyes, now ranked No. 15. Starters such as inside linebackers Cole Farrand and L.A. Goree also have been playing through injuries.

Marty Costes battered Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference pitching last season, his first after being home schooled. The junior's performance in the tough MIAA was apparently enough to convince Maryland coach John Szefc that the Archbishop Curley infielder should be a Terp. Costes, now a senior, orally committed to play baseball at Maryland on Friday, the day he was offered a full scholarship. "I like the philosophy of the coaching staff," Costes said on Sunday.

When the writer Peter Mehlman was working on the television show "Seinfeld," he could be counted on to come up with the tiniest, most insignificant - and ultimately, the most memorable - plots. It was Mehlman, now 58 and a Los Angeles resident, who explored snack-eating etiquette at parties, and Mehlman who decided that the show's female lead, Elaine, would hoard contraceptive sponges. And it was Mehlman who coined several catchphrases that have entered the cultural lexicon, from "yada yada" to gloss over a conversation, "sponge-worthy" to describe a hot date and "double-dipping" to refer to the practice of dunking a snack into a sauce at a party, taking a bite and then dunking it again into the same container.

When Republican Larry Hogan and Democrat Anthony G. Brown discuss the business climate in Maryland, it seems as if the gubernatorial rivals are talking about two different states. Hogan's Maryland is a terrible place to do business, a state where companies and residents are streaming for the borders to escape oppressive taxation and capricious regulations. His remedy: tax and spending cuts coupled with business-friendly appointments to regulatory agencies. Brown's Maryland is the state with the highest household median income and a blue-chip AAA bond rating, where top-quality educational resources and strategic investments fuel the nation's No. 1 entrepreneurial culture.

On Saturday, Ravens players Torrey Smith and John Simon will both be in Indianapolis, as the Ravens get ready for Sunday's game against the Colts. But while Smith and Simon take care of their own Ravens-related responsibilities, both will also be tracking what happens between Maryland and Ohio State on Saturday in College Park. Smith starred at Maryland before being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Ravens and still follows the team closely. “I don't know about the score, but I think we can beat them,” Smith said.
