Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers stink -- let's get that out of the way first. But the Ravens still needed an offensive performance like this on the road. It was extremely beneficial to get Torrey Smith going, and also to incorporate a couple of more targets, like Michael Campanaro and Kamar Aiken, into the offense. Not to be outdone, the defense played well until it let down in the second half. They got a rare interception from a defensive back and a rare - at least lately - sack from Terrell Suggs.

Rolando McClain was property of the Ravens for less than 15 months, a period in which he never participated in a single practice for the organization, yet he managed to make plenty of headlines. Here is a look at McClain's tumultuous stay in Baltimore: April 12, 2013 : The Ravens signed McClain, the former first-round draft pick who had been cut a week earlier by the Oakland Raiders amid a series of off-the-field issues, to a one-year, $700,000 contract that included $400,000 in playing-time incentives.

Ravens cornerback Fabian Washington was suspended one game by the NFL yesterday for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Washington, who was traded from the Oakland Raiders three months ago, will miss the season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 7. The punishment stems from his February arrest on a domestic battery charge. He was arrested at his home in East Manatee County, Fla., after the responding police officer noticed a red mark on the neck of Washington's 21-year-old live-in girlfriend.

The Ravens will miss quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson, who has become the Oakland Raiders' offensive coordinator. As the position coach, Jackson spent more time with second-year quarterback Joe Flacco than any other coach and had become his friend and his buffer between offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and head coach John Harbaugh when things weren't going well. Of the three coaches, Jackson had the most level head when it came to tutoring Flacco. It appears Jackson has become the head coach-in-waiting if things do not go well in Oakland for current coach Tom Cable.

Marques Ogden can remember the last words his dad, Shirrel, spoke to him days before he died. Shirrel Ogden wanted to be out of a Washington hospital and in the stands at M&T Bank Stadium on Sept. 17, when the Ravens face the Oakland Raiders in their home opener. "I took him his hat, cane and glasses. He told me he wanted to be at that game, and then he threw me out of the room because he said he was tired," said Marques, smiling.

There's just something about the Oakland Raiders. They're 17-53 since 2004, and their motto is "Commitment to Excellence," which I'm pretty sure was on the short list when Baltimore came up with its "Get in on it!" tourism campaign a few years ago. But if it's any consolation, owner Al Davis was on the short list for that Geico campaign until they found a cuter lizard. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

Middle linebacker Rolando McClain has decided that he wants to play football again but it won't be with the Ravens. After watching McClain retire twice in a year's span without playing a game for the team, the Ravens traded the rights to the mercurial linebacker, plus a 2015 seventh-round pick, to the Dallas Cowboys for a 2015 sixth-rounder. The Cowboys, who were looking for linebacker help after standout Sean Lee suffered a season-ending knee injury in an offseason workout, activated McClain from the reserve-retired list, and placed Lee on injured reserve.

The Ravens' Justin Tucker has not only been one of the league's best kickers in his first two seasons in the NFL, he's also been one of its bigger bargains. Such is life when you originally make the team as an undrafted free agent. Tucker, who beat out Billy Cundiff for the kicking job as a rookie, signed a three-year, $1.44 million deal with the Ravens before the 2012 season. He's due a base salary of $570,000 in 2014, the final year of the deal, and then he could potentially be a restricted free agent next offseason.

The Ravens are trying out veteran defensive tackle Daniel Muir during minicamp. Muir, a 30-year-old Lanham native, played high school football at Parkdale in Riverdale where he was an all-state selection as a senior, when he recorded 96 tackles and 13 1/2 sacks. Muir has played for the Oakland Raiders, Indianapolis Colts, St. Louis Rams, New York Jets, Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers. Muir had 17 tackles and one sack last season for the Raiders in 10 games, including one start.

According to a source, the Ravens haven't officially signed the free agent cornerback. Ross is taking part in the minicamp on a tryout basis, per a source. Veteran cornerback  Drayton Florence told The Sun's Aaron Wilson that he will also have a tryout for the team this week as the Ravens continue to look to upgrade their cornerback depth.

The Ravens apparently haven't closed the door on middle linebacker Rolando McClain just yet. Two days after McClain had a shaky workout in front of team officials, failing to pass the conditioning test and struggling in drills, the Ravens activated the 24-year-old from the reserved/retired list. The Ravens haven't commented on the decision and it's unclear where this leaves McClain's status for the 2014 season. However, the move does allow McClain, who hasn't played in an NFL game since late in the 2012 season, to join the team for offseason workouts, which start Monday in Owings Mills.

Thanks to the Tennessee Titans' 27-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts and the Oakland Raiders' 28-27 loss to the Detroit Lions, the Ravens are officially in the 2011-12 NFL playoffs. The Ravens, who will be making their fourth straight playoff appearance, will be joined in the postseason by the Pittsburgh Steelers, who also clinched a berth Sunday. If the Ravens beat the San Diego Chargers tonight and the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals the next two weeks, they will clinch the AFC's No. 1 overall seed.

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.

The NFL's annual free-agency spending spree officially gets underway Tuesday, with the Ravens in a slightly different position than in the recent past. An elevated salary cap, coupled with a few cost-saving moves earlier this offseason, has left the Ravens with nearly $25 million of cap space. General manager Ozzie Newsome, who traditionally exercises discipline, restraint and patience at this time of year, already has vowed to explore every way of improving a team that missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007.
