After flirting with retirement for much of the offseason, Ravens safety Ed Reed reported to the Under Armour Performance Center this morning, quieting any talk that he might hold out of training camp. Reed arrived at training camp at approximately 10 a.m., walking through the player's entrance. He was carrying a baseball and a jug of water and he didn't interact with reporters as he entered the building. “For me, it was never a question if Ed was going to be at camp or not,” inside linebacker Ray Lewis said.

The Ravens signed former Texas kicker Justin Tucker, an undrafted free agent, to a contract Tuesday. Tucker, who earlier this month attended the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, was not signed as of last week when the Ravens held their first week of voluntary organized team activity (OTA) workouts. But the Ravens have made it official, meaning there will be another kicker around to kick it with Billy Cundiff. The Ravens wanted to have another kicker signed for these offseason workouts to spell Cundiff and punter Sam Koch, but they might also want to put a little heat on Cundiff after he missed that field goal in January.

When the Ravens signed three free agents in the offseason to boost their offense, only the acquisition of veteran receiver Steve Smith seemed to create a buzz around town. After six games, all three additions and center Jeremy Zuttah have had a significant impact, but none greater than Smith. He gave the Ravens two elements they were missing from last season - a go-to receiver who could work the entire field, and a hard-nose veteran with a strong work ethic Smith has 35 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns so far this year.

Talented young cornerbacks are at a premium in what has become a pass-happy NFL, but the Ravens feel like they have three of them. And Thursday, they made sure their most accomplished cover man will stay in a Ravens uniform for a long time. Fulfilling one of their offseason priorities, the Ravens reached agreement on a six-year, $50 million deal with Lardarius Webb, who emerged as a shutdown cornerback during the team's run to the AFC championship game last season. Webb, 26, will be in Baltimore next week to take a physical and sign the contract, which includes a $10 million signing bonus and $20 million guaranteed.

While there will be more to say on this subject at the end of the week as the next big game draws near, it's worth taking a few lines here to give a shout out to the home team: Go Ravens! A cast of I-bleed-purple fans has descended upon the sidewalks of Harford County to paint team symbols. And it's hard to go anywhere without noticing just about everyone is wearing something purple after our purple and black birds won their first playoff game, which came in the second round of the postseason.

In a Monday morning appearance on ESPN, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs revealed that there was miscommunication on the sideline before Billy Cundiff missed a game-tying field goal attempt in the closing seconds of Sunday's 23-20 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game. According to Suggs, some players thought the Ravens had picked up a first down when Anquan Boldin fumbled out of bounds after a nine-yard reception on first down. But the fumble was correctly spotted at the New England 14-yard line.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh woke up Monday and watched the tape from Sunday's game again. It was even more enjoyable than witnessing it from his spot on the sideline. "It was a lot more fun watching the tape … when I already know the outcome," said Harbaugh, a day after the Ravens had one of their most explosive offensive performances in team history and routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17 at Raymond James Stadium. "But any time you see a touchdown, it's fun. It's a joy, it's just a great feeling.

For Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah, it was a strange feeling to return to Tampa for the first time since being traded to the Ravens in March in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Zuttah had played and started for the Buccaneers for six years before the offseason transaction. “There was a time when I was bitter,” said Zuttah, who was signed to a five-year, $18 million contract extension after the trade. “Once I got to Baltimore, that was out the window. I'm just happy to be a part of this organization.” On Sunday, Zuttah had to adjust to lining up on the opponents' sideline and getting dressed in the visitors' locker room.

TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

For play callers like the Ravens' Gary Kubiak, achieving offensive balance is an elusive pursuit, a challenging and often frustrating endeavor that prompts sleepless nights and almost constant second-guessing. When Kubiak spoke to reporters on Thursday, the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts four days earlier was still fresh on his mind, and the questions about why his offense ran the ball just 15 times in the game seemed as pertinent as ever. "Last weekend, it's the least amount of plays we've run in a game, the least amount of time we've been on the field.

PASSING GAME: Quarterback Joe Flacco couldn't get much done against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago as he completed 20 of 32 passes for 164 yards and no touchdowns. Pittsburgh cornerback Ike Taylor held Torrey Smith, the Ravens' top downfield threat, to one 7-yard catch, even though Smith was targeted seven times. The Ravens passing attack is ranked 11th in the NFL, but only one team (the Dallas Cowboys) has held Flacco under 300 passing yards at M&T Bank Stadium this season.

The Ravens survived an emergency situation at left guard when starter Kelechi Osemele was ruled out shortly before kickoff after testing out his bruised, hyperextended right knee during warmups. Osemele looked immobile while trying to do drills in the end zone, noticeably favoring his knee and unable to plant and change direction enough to convince the coaching staff and trainers to play him. So, the Ravens started rookie fifth-round draft pick John Urschel in place of Osemele after initially announcing that backup center Gino Gradkowski would start at left guard.

TAMPA, FLA. -- Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith knelt in the end zone Sunday afternoon, pausing for a moment to pray after catching a slant pass from Joe Flacco in stride for a touchdown. The former Maryland standout was in a thankful mood during a resurgent game after arguably the roughest stretch of his career. One week after his dropped pass ended a late comeback attempt against the Indianapolis Colts, Smith was jubilant during the Ravens' 48-17 blowout victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.
