The NFL revealed new Nike Elite 51 Pro Bowl uniforms Tuesday, which they tout as "the game's lightest and most breathable NFL Nike uniform to date. " As you may remember, the game's format has changed and no longer will feature the AFC vs. NFC. Instead, teams of all-stars will be drafted to two sides. One team, modeled in the photo above with a Ravens helmet, will wear a white-and-orange color scheme, while the other will wear gray and "volt" green. "The uniform design and the game itself share a common theme that highlights the new, faster format for the Pro Bowl," the NFL said in its news release.

In NFL locker rooms, respect isn't earned only on the field. The almighty dollar also helps. When the Cleveland Browns signed Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden to a five-year, $68 million contract in May that included $45 million guaranteed, it affirmed his reputation as one of the top cornerbacks in the game - and his value to the AFC North franchise. "What sets Joe Haden apart? He's not an average corner," Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith said. "His contract, that shows you he's not average.

The Ravens' defense won't be competing against Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Josh Gordon this season. His one-year suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy was upheld by the league after an appeal was heard by vice president Harold Henderson. Gordon played just one game against the Ravens last season, catching three passes for 44 yards. He was serving a two-game suspension for testing positive for codeine that kept him out of the Browns' first game against the Ravens last year.

Billy Cundiff's curious NFL odyssey took him to eight teams and through countless trials before he arrived in Baltimore in November, 2009. A year later, Cundiff's destination includes coveted hot spots like Hawaii and the playoffs. Cundiff was one of five Ravens named to the AFC's 2010 Pro Bowl team on Tuesday, another high-water mark in a fast-rising career as an emerging kicking star. He is joined on the all-star team by perennial Pro Bowl selectees Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, as well as defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and linebacker Terrell Suggs.

The Ravens, who enter Sunday's regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals as the No. 2 seed in the AFC, could be well-represented next month in the Pro Bowl with seven players being selected Tuesday for the game, including six as starters. But count linebacker Terrell Suggs among the Ravens who have no desire to be in Honolulu on Jan. 29. “To be clear, I have no intentions of playing in the Pro Bowl,” said Suggs. “I plan on being in practice with my teammates that week, getting ready for the Super Bowl.” Suggs did say that he was “excited and honored” but he made it clear that cold Indianapolis - and not sunny Hawaii - is the desired destination for the Ravens, who nonetheless garnered the second-most Pro Bowl selections in team history.

If the Ravens aren't still playing in late January, second-year kicker Justin Tucker will head to Hawaii for his first Pro Bowl. He'll likely be joined by a couple of teammates who are familiar with the trip. Tucker, right guard Marshal Yanda, rush linebacker Terrell Suggs and nose tackle Haloti Ngata were selected to play in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 26 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, the league announced Friday night. It marks the eighth consecutive year where the Ravens have at least four Pro Bowl selections.

In a season filled with low points, the Ravens reached another one yesterday, receiving a franchise-worst one invitation to the Pro Bowl. Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden will make his ninth straight appearance in the NFL all-star game, becoming the only representative for the last-place Ravens (5-9). For Ogden, it was an honor welcomed with mixed emotions of a disappointing season. "It's kind of like having a good dessert but also having a crappy meal," Ogden said. "You know you'll feel a little better, but the steak was bad. Hopefully next year, we'll get a little bit of both.

Despite multiple attempts to get Vonta Leach a touchdown during the 2011 season, the Ravens fullback always came up short of the end zone. On Sunday night during the Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Leach got another chance to score. This time he made the most of his opportunity. With 11:45 left in the fourth quarter, Leach got the handoff from Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton at the 1 and busted through the line for a touchdown. Leach's score, followed by Sebastian Janikowski's extra point, gave the AFC a 45-35 lead.

It's been well-documented that the Ravens would like to sign wide receiver  Torrey Smith , nose tackle  Haloti Ngata  and cornerback  Jimmy Smith  to contract extensions before the start of the 2014 season. Little has been said about Pro Bowl third-year kicker  Justin Tucker's  contract, but the Ravens are working on a contract extension for him, too, general manager  Ozzie Newsome  told   Kevin Byrne , the team's senior vice president of public and community relations, in an article posted on the team's website.

The Ravens contacted Haloti Ngata's representatives earlier this offseason to begin contract extension talks that the team hoped would allow the 30-year-old defensive lineman to finish his career in Baltimore. Those talks, aimed at reducing Ngata's team-high $16 million salary cap number in each of the final two years of his deal and extending his stay in the purple and black, didn't get very far. But as he's preparing for his ninth NFL season with the Ravens, Ngata said he'd like nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of his closest friend on the team, Terrell Suggs, and sign a contract extension to end his career in the same place it began.

Select an immediate standout early, an eventual starter or two later, then round out the class with a few rookie free-agent gems. For much of Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome's tenure, that's been his blueprint on draft day. "Once you start out [by drafting] two Hall of Famers in Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis, it's kind of hard not to go downhill from there," joked former Ravens head coach Brian Billick, now an NFL Network analyst. "But downhill is still pretty darn good. " The NFL draft is an inexact science.

On his way to Baltimore on Thursday night, Steve Smith got a phone call from New England head coach Bill Belichick who told the free agent wide receiver that he wanted him to play for the Patriots and catch passes from Tom Brady. The reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks also called and Smith said the San Diego Chargers - coached by Mike McCoy, his former passing game coordinator in Carolina - made him a contract offer. But as Smith pondered a move for the first time in his 13-year NFL career, he concluded that there was no need to make any more visits after Baltimore.

Now that wide receiver Steve Smith has arrived in Baltimore via his three-year, $11 million contract, he fills the void of physicality and toughness created a year ago when the Ravens traded Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers following a contract dispute. Both Smith and Boldin excel at making contested catches, are fearless going across the middle, have a mean stiff arm and posses the veteran savvy of understanding spacing and body control. Both are feisty on the field and regarded as leaders in the locker room.

The line in the sand has to be drawn soon. For the Ravens to be successful in the offseason, a top priority is getting Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs to agree to a contract extension, freeing up some salary cap room to sign other players. Teams can begin negotiating with unrestricted free agents March 8. Free agency begins at 4 p.m. March 11. According to an NFL source, the two sides are making progress, and the assumption here is that a new deal is likely. Suggs has one year remaining on a six-year, $62.5 million contract worth $12.4 million this season.

Four Ravens players have dropped out of the Pro Bowl, making the annual all-star affair less attractive to those Ravens fans who wish they had better plans Sunday afternoon. (Quarterback Joe Flacco withdrew from the annual MSP Polar Bear Plunge, too, but give the guy a break: He's a newlywed and his wife is pregnant). But besides passing up an opportunity to go to Hawaii, I can't say I blame Ray Rice, Terrell Suggs, Ed Reed and Haloti Ngata for exercising their right to miss the game, whether their reasons are injury-related or personal.

It's been a long wait for Terrell Suggs to exact his revenge on the New England Patriots, and when the Ravens' 28-13 win was complete Sunday, he let loose. "Tell them to have fun at the Pro Bowl," Suggs said after the game to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports! about the Patriots. "Shut them out in the second half. Arrogant [expletive]. These are the most arrogant [expletive] in the world starting with [coach Bill] Belichick on down. " The Patriots beat the Ravens last year in the AFC championship game, 23-20, but lost the Super Bowl to the New York Giants.

On the first night of the NFL draft in early May, the Ravens will be in an unfamiliar position. Accustomed to picking late in the first round during an impressive run of five consecutive postseason appearances, they will have a selection inside the first 20 picks of the draft for the first time since 2008. The Ravens, obviously, would prefer to have the same unfavorable draft slot as they had last year, when they had the last pick in the first round after winning the Super Bowl.

Before day two of the first annual NFL Pro Bowl Draft began tonight, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker took to his Twitter account to campaign for one of the game's captains, Deion Sanders, to take him with his first selection. Tucker had to wait a little longer than that, but he was ultimately drafted by Sanders' team, which will oppose fellow Hall of Famer Jerry Rice's squad Sunday night at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Tucker joins his other two Pro Bowl teammates - guard Marshal Yanda and rush linebacker Terrell Suggs - on Sanders' team, which is being captained by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.
