Nobody has hit .400 in baseball since the late Ted Williams in 1941. Nobody has ever hit 400 in football - 400 pounds, that is - but Aaron Gibson is knocking loudly at the door. Gibson weighed in at Dallas Cowboys training camp late last month at 410, or 422 according to some reports. If the fourth-year offensive tackle makes the team and keeps the weight, he would become the heaviest player in NFL history, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Officially, that is. "I'm not the first 400-pound player," Gibson said.

For the first time in 14 years, Mike Whittles was not on the sideline when Archbishop Spalding's football team took the field for the first day of practice, but junior quarterback Zach Abey surely spoke for his teammates when he said their late coach's presence remains strong. "He's definitely still with us, because every day when we're working out or when we're on the field, we can hear him in our heads just saying, 'Make every day count' and 'Never give up,' because we don't know what day is going to be our last day. We try to work hard and it gives me a big lift knowing he's still with us through everything I do," Abey said.

The court ruling that blocked sophomore receiver Mike Williams from entering this weekend's draft added another obstacle to the Ravens' pursuit for an elite wide-out. The team's chances of addressing its most pressing need decreased along with the receiver pool yesterday, when Southern California's Williams was among the college underclassmen barred from this year's draft. With a first-round lock like Williams gone, the odds of one of the top seven rated receivers (University of Pittsburgh's Larry Fitzgerald, Texas' Roy Williams, Washington's Reggie Williams, Wisconsin's Lee Evans, Louisiana State's Michael Clayton, Ohio State's Michael Jenkins and Oklahoma State's Rashaun Woods)

The Seattle Seahawks have a pair of starting wide receivers in Sidney Rice and Mike Williams who are large, physical targets for either Tarvaris Jackson or Charlie Whitehurst. But undrafted rookie Doug Baldwin leads the offense in catches (28), is tied for first with Ben Obomanu for first in receiving touchdowns (two), and ranks second in receiving yards (434). Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb, who could line up in the slot against Baldwin when Seattle employs a three-wideout set, said he has been impressed with Baldwin's fast transition to the NFL from Stanford.

Steve Holmes remembers meeting Mike Williams as a freshman at Archbishop Spalding and being struck by how much potential the young lineman appeared to have. Holmes, a Cavaliers assistant coach, also recalls exactly what Williams had hoped to accomplish through football. “Since he was a kid, he always wanted to go to Maryland,” Holmes said. “Ever since he came to Spalding, that's all he talked about.” Williams doesn't dispute his coach's assertion. Throughout all the ups and downs the Terps football program experienced during Williams' youth, the Spalding defensive lineman remained loyal to his hometown school.

The Buccaneers could use some good news after a 3-13 season, and here's some: Every year since the NFL realigned its divisions in 2002, the team that finished last in the NFC South made the playoffs the following year. In that sense, there's hope. Now, the bad news for the Bucs: Things aren't getting any easier in the division. The Saints are coming off their first Super Bowl victory and have one of the league's elite quarterbacks in Drew Brees. The Falcons patched a hole in their secondary by signing cornerback Dunta Robinson, among the top free agents this offseason.

Los Angeles -- Mike Williams is in his second season with the Detroit Lions, but the former Southern California receiver is still helping the Trojans in ways he never imagined. And in ways he never wanted to. Williams, you see, has become a cautionary tale, a how-not-to guide for college standouts considering leaving school early to chase their NFL dreams. Oh, he's financially set; his rookie contract as the No. 10 selection included $10.5 million in guaranteed money. But the likelihood of his ever making a meaningful contribution as an NFL player is diminishing by the week.

The Detroit Lions feature three receivers with first-round pedigree, but it's a Ravens castoff who finds himself tied for the team league in receptions. Kevin Johnson's 10-catch total ties him with Roy Williams for the Detroit lead. Johnson was signed as a free agent during the offseason, and his role looked in jeopardy after the Lions drafted Mike Williams with the 10th overall pick in April, the third straight year they have taken a receiver with their first pick. Yet it has been Johnson who has established himself as a reliable threat.

It was mostly food for thought yesterday at the Ravens' pre-draft luncheon, where team officials talked about how all their hard work in free agency has given them enough flexibility to take the best player available with the 22nd overall pick. But there was one morsel of news: The Ravens acknowledged for the first time that they would be willing to trade up to the middle of the first round for a coveted prospect. One possible target is receiver Mike Williams, who was blocked from entering last year's draft as an underclassman, along with Maurice Clarett.
