Brian Billick was an assistant public relations director for the San Francisco 49ers when they selected Joe Montana in the third round of the 1979 NFL draft. The reaction in the war room, Billick said, didn't come close to matching the Ravens' reaction Saturday night when they drafted quarterback Chris Redman in the third round. "It was just noise," Ravens director of college scouting Phil Savage recalled yesterday, laughing. Redman was the first player that Savage watched on tape last May after the Ravens failed to pick a quarterback -- and the last player that Savage watched Friday night on the eve of the draft.

Catonsville retiree Jim Daly considered it galling to have to shell out a combined $2,800 for six "personal seat licenses" for the right to buy Ravens season tickets before the team moved to its new stadium in 1998. "I thought it was a total rip-off," said the devout fan, whose truck is painted Ravens purple. But Daly shifted his position after he sold the seat licenses recently, turning his investment into $13,000 - a 464 percent profit. Daly joined many other fans who are making money on their initial football investments.

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.

Hard-core Ravens fans and HBO viewers know what Kenny Jackson did on his big night out during training camp. He gave an unequivocal thumbs-up to Planet of the Apes, even if it wasn't the most memorable film he has seen this month. Jackson is the unusual rookie free agent whose quest to join the Super Bowl champions was developed into one of the subplots on Hard Knocks, the HBO chronicle of the Ravens' preseason. He's a chiseled 6 feet 2, 253 pounds, and there are plenty of rough edges to his game.

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.

John Harbaugh's high-intensity offseason practices crossed the line for the NFL Players Association. The Ravens were forced to cancel next week's offseason camp -- their last one before training camp -- after violating the collective bargaining agreement's offseason workout rules. The penalty was the resolution after the players union lodged a complaint against the Ravens. It was determined that the Ravens had broken the rules concerning the intensity and tempo of drills conducted at their offseason camps as well as the length of time spent by players at the team's facility, according to a joint statement Monday from the NFL and the players union.

The Ravens are putting finishing touches on the new turf at M&T Bank Stadium this week, which means the team will stay with an artificial surface for the foreseeable future. This SportExe field, which features 1billion blades of green synthetic fibers with a base of sand and granular rubber, is essentially the same as the highly rated one that has been in place for seven years. The older turf had begun to lose its softness, which led to the team's installing its first new field since it changed from grass in 2003.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ravens fans had waited 12 years for another Super Bowl victory, and they packed the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, dwarfing 49ers rooters in both numbers and volume. They about blew the roof off the stadium when Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco flicked his first touchdown pass as the team began its march to a commanding halftime lead. Then Baltimore - the team and its fans - held on for dear life. Down by 22 points early in the second half, the 49ers staged a furious comeback that fell just short as the Ravens held on to win, 34-31.

- Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is causing more heartache for Baltimore fans these days than Bob Irsay. Allowing the four-time NFL Most Valuable Player to throw two touchdown passes in the final two minutes of the first half, the Ravens were once again undone by Manning in a 20-3 loss to the top-seeded Colts in an AFC divisional playoff game at Lucas Oil Stadium. The sixth-seeded Ravens (10-8) could never seize the momentum from him, failing to score a touchdown against Indianapolis for a third straight game and turning the ball over four times (two interceptions and lost fumbles by Ray Rice and Ed Reed)

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.

TAMPA, FLA. - Inside the locker room late Sunday afternoon, Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee had a blunt take on the defense's rough treatment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. “He's going to be pretty sore,” McPhee said while smiling at his handiwork, which included one sack. During the Ravens' 48-17 win at Raymond James Stadium, the defense sacked Glennon a season-high five times and hit him 15 times. The amount of sacks equaled their previous season total entering Sunday's game.
