The talk started not long after Elvis Dumervil passed his physical and put his name on a Ravens contract in late March. The Ravens had finally found another proven pass rusher to pair with Terrell Suggs . Suggs and Dumervil were months away from even practicing together for the first time, but the possibilities seemed endless. After all, Suggs is a five-time Pro-Bowl selection, a one-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and the Ravens' all-time leader with 84 ½ sacks and 11 forced fumbles.

After an emotionally wrought court hearing that lasted almost all day, the wife of former Baltimore Raven Michael C. McCrary withdrew her petition Monday for permanent protection from her husband, who she had alleged was violent, threatening and abusive. In hurried negotiations during a break in the proceedings in Baltimore County Circuit Court, lawyers for Mary Haley McCrary and the ex-defensive end agreed that the case would be dismissed as long as their clients vowed to have no contact with each other except to deal with logistical matters concerning the care of their 6-year-old daughter.

Baltimore Ravens defensive end Michael McCrary was hit in the nose with a bottle during a fight at 1:30 a.m. Sunday in a popular downtown nightclub, city police said yesterday. McCrary was in the Redwood Trust nightclub when he was assaulted by a man and several patrons joined in, police said. McCrary's nose was cut and required four stitches at University of Maryland Medical Center, police said. The department's homicide unit is investigating the case because McCrary is a high-profile victim, police said.

The Ravens' media guide says that Michael McCrary was born in Vienna, Va. It doesn't say whether he is of this Earth."I don't care what planet he thinks he's from, what kind of alien he is," Ravens defensive tackle Tony Siragusa said yesterday. "He should just keep doing the things he's doing."Someone call Hollywood. Someone call Mars."My Defensive End the Alien," is in production."Goose is always making up something to say," McCrary said. "I'm not even going to respond to that. You're not going to get me in the newspapers talking about being from another planet."

AFTER PRACTICE each day, Ravens defensive end Michael McCrary goes home and puts ice on his knees for three to four hours. His frustration level is up, and his statistics are down. Pro Bowl players are supposed to make plays, not watch them. After two games, McCrary has only six tackles (two solos, four assists) and no sacks. Rookie defensive end Tony Weaver has more tackles than McCrary, and so does cornerback Alvin "I Get Beat Frequently" Porter. Outside linebacker Peter Boulware has two sacks to lead the team, which is expected, but even Marques "NFL Europe" Douglas has one more sack than McCrary.

Composed but clearly anguished, the estranged wife of former Baltimore Raven Michael C. McCrary told a judge Monday that he has become increasingly violent and verbally abusive, at one point punching a hole in a wall next to her head. "I don't want him near me," Mary Haley McCrary, 40, married to the retired defensive end since 2005, told the judge. "I don't want him near my daughter," referring to their 6-year-old child. Judge Jan Marshall Alexander of Baltimore County District Court granted the woman's request for a temporary protective order that bars the 6-foot-4-inch, 270-pound former Pro Bowler and defensive end from the couple's home in Timonium.

The recent aggressive reporting of the marital problems of the McCrary household is an unfortunate and sad commentary on the media's search for "newsworthy" items ("McCrary's wife granted protective order against ex-Raven," March 8). I do not agree that this is major news to Baltimore but, even worse, I do not understand why The Baltimore Sun has spread the name of the Mike McCrary's minor child in some of the articles that they have printed in recent days. I was dismayed and shocked by your lack of sensitivity and regard for a child.

The wife of former Baltimore Raven Michael C. McCrary was granted a temporary protective order Monday against the retired defensive end. A Baltimore County District Court judge accepted Mary Haley McCrary's position that her husband had threatened her and the couple's nanny who cares for their young daughter. Since it was an ex-parte hearing -- meaning that just one side can argue the case without the defendant being present -- Michael McCrary did not appear in court Monday, but will have an opportunity to do so at a hearing next week.

The wife of former Baltimore Raven Michael C. McCrary is seeking a protective order against the retired defensive end, claiming her husband brandished a handgun during an argument, tossed a 45-pound metal kitchen stool at her and threatened to "ruin" her in a series of encounters dating to 2008. "He's an 11 year veteran of the NFL and is volatile and violent," Mary Haley McCrary, 40, said in a hand-written statement that was part of a protective order petition filed late Friday in Baltimore County District Court and obtained by the Baltimore Sun. "I fear for my life."

Some Ravens fans took exception to Rex Ryan's comments last week about rookie linebacker-defensive end Paul Kruger's wearing No. 99 this season, but few in the Ravens organization were offended. Those types of wisecracks are what made Ryan endearing to his co-workers and the players over at the Castle. His players loved Ryan, the former Ravens defensive coordinator, because he was an extension from the locker room into the front office. What set him apart from some assistant coaches was his ability to get players to play exceptionally hard for him. We love to throw around the words "team chemistry" in sports, so much in fact that the phrase has become undervalued.

Javon Walker was robbed and beaten for $3,000 in cash and $100,000 worth of jewelry. Phillip Buchanon was pistol-whipped, stripped naked and robbed in his own home. Intruders stole everything from the TV to the SUV. Dunta Robinson was bound with duct tape and robbed at gunpoint in his home, too. And eight days after Sean Taylor's home was burglarized, his house was again broken into and he was fatally shot by intruders. The list is much longer and the trend no doubt alarming. A source of envy and a target for crime, football players are at serious risk.

WHEN NEWS came out Friday that a Ravens player was involved in a bar fight, it was no big deal. Just another player, another fight and another day in the life of a professional athlete. But once Michael McCrary's name was mentioned, that raised an eyebrow. When the report said he was hit in the nose with a beer bottle, there was the stench of player haters. That's what this case is all about. McCrary is no Bam Morris, no Cornell Brown. He is on the list of Ravens least likely to get in trouble, along with Peter Boulware, Matt Stover, Jonathan Ogden, Rob Burnett, Edwin Mulitalo and Mike Flynn.

Michael McCrary had known Edward Giannasca for half a decade, and, until the former Baltimore Raven realized that he'd been cheated out of millions, he thought of the longtime developer as a stand-up guy. McCrary trusted Giannasca so much that, with few questions asked, he handed him a $3 million check three years ago for a real estate project that would convert a building in New Orleans into condominiums. Giannasca, though, betrayed that loyalty, pocketing along with his other partners about $12 million in insurance money after Hurricane Katrina spoiled the deal and telling McCrary that the insurance claim they'd filed had been denied, a Baltimore circuit judge ruled Wednesday.

A Baltimore judged yesterday ordered the business partners of Michael McCrary to pay the former Raven about $33 million in damages for a fraudulent insurance claim involving a condominium project in New Orleans, according to McCrary's lawyer. Judge Paul E. Alpert awarded the retired McCrary $15 million in punitive damages, one of the highest judgments on record, according to attorney Kenneth B. Frank, and about $16 million in compensatory damages. An additional $2 million came from prejudgment interest.
