One way or another, 2012 is a coming-out season for Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Soon after the 2011 season, coach John Harbaugh told offensive coordinator Cam Cameron he wanted to test the limits of the offense and nothing should slow it down. The no-huddle has come to Baltimore: down, set and ready to go. "Oh, they're going to be running it in Baltimore?" asked former Colts and Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda, who installed the offense when he was offensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills from 1989 to 1991.

Hauling logs with his father at sunrise while growing up in East Texas, Ravens veteran offensive guard Bobbie Williams built his beefy arms into formidable weapons. Now, Williams plans on using them to inflict punishment on his old football team Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Williams is adamant he doesn't hold a grudge against the Bengals for not retaining him as a free agent following a season where he broke his right ankle. But Williams acknowledged this game has extra meaning as he'll grapple with the team that gave up on him. "I'd be telling you a story if I said it wasn't," Williams said with a smile.

Although center, guard and tackle are the three positions along the offensive line, the players who make up that front usually say that something as simple as moving from one spot to another or switching from one side to the other is not as easy as it sounds. Mastering that ability to adjust, however, is critical for offensive linemen vying for a spot on a team's active 53-man roster. That's especially true for the Ravens, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron says. “To be a backup, you have to be versatile,” Cameron said after Tuesday's practice at the team's training complex in Owings Mills.

This video of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs playing running back in high school -- which The Sun's video staff unearthed today -- is a gem across the board. Without further ado, a running highlight blog, if you will, of Suggs back in his playing days for Hamilton High School in Arizona. 0:06 : Suggs is currently listed at 6-3, 260 pounds, but even back at Hamilton, he dwarfs almost every other player. He looks to be significantly larger than every one of his offensive linemen - and he was the running back.

The Ravens are doing the right thing by signing veteran offensive linemen like guard Bobbie Williams and center Tony Wragge. Regardless of head coach John Harbaugh saying the left guard position is open, it really isn't because Williams is the starter. Barring injury, he'll be in the lineup in the season opener. When he was with the Bengals, Williams used to play well against the Ravens and he got an endorsement from Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata during the offseason.

Days after the Ravens added eight players in the NFL draft, director of player personnel Eric DeCosta said there are items left on their wish list - assuming the player and the price are right. "We're very excited about last weekend and the draft we just had," DeCosta said. "Our work is not yet done. … There are still moves left to be made. This team is not yet ready for September. " DeCosta was the featured guest Wednesday night at The Baltimore Sun Newsmaker Forum series at the Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills.

The Ravens have said all along that they would be patient in free agency and not panic to fill any perceived holes. They've been true to their word. When left guard Ben Grubbs opted to sign with the New Orleans Saints about 48 hours into free agency, the expectation was that the Ravens would move immediately to find a replacement for the Pro Bowl performer. It wasn't necessarily immediate but the Ravens didn't wait too long to bring in Evan Mathis , regarded as the third best free agent guard behind Carl Nicks (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

The Ravens have talked about adding some offensive linemen during the draft, but they need to improve their evaluations. Since head coach John Harbaugh joined the Ravens, the team hasn't fared well as far as selecting offensive linemen. In 2008, they selected UTEP offensive tackle Oniel Cousins in the third round. He is no longer with the team. In 2009, they selected Mississippi offensive tackle Michael Oher in the first round. Oher has been solid, but not the dominant type or even the starting left offensive tackle the Ravens expected.
