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.

When the NFL's current collective bargaining agreement was hammered out by NFL owners and the NFLPA last summer, a tweak was made to the rules regarding the compensation a team can receive if one of their restricted free agents signs an offer sheet with another team. In the past, the maximum tender that could be placed on a restricted free agent was for first- and third-round draft picks, meaning that if, say, the Cleveland Browns signed Player X, a restricted free agent for the Ravens, to an offer sheet, the Ravens could either match the contract offer and keep the player or let him walk and be compensated with those two draft picks.

NEW YORK -- Patrick Ewing has filed for an arbitration hearing against the New York Knicks that could result in his becoming an immediate free agent and possibly even leaving the team before next season.The move abruptly ends speculation that the Knicks and their franchise center were close to an amicable resolution of differences over Ewing's contract.Ewing's lawyer, David Falk, and Knicks officials said Ewing turned down a new contract that would have made him the highest-paid player in team sports, exceeding the $5.3 million a year contract extension that Roger Clemens signed with the Boston Red Sox this year.

Ravens center Steve Everitt has started all but three games since the team formerly known as the Cleveland Browns made him their top draft pick in 1993, but Everitt probably will hope to find a new team after this season.John Macik, Everitt's agent, said he has been trying to get the veteran a long-term contract extension since last spring. But the Everitt Ravens have not budged from the one-year qualifying offer of $785,000 they tendered Everitt in February.Everitt, a restricted free agent who earned $729,700 last season -- including a base salary of $295,000 -- in the final season of a three-year contract, must accept the one-year offer by June 15, or he will be forced to play for no less than 10 percent above last year's base salary in 1996.

When the Ravens give out tenders to their restricted free agents Thursday, Jared Gaither should receive a significant raise and Demetrius Williams could be given an opportunity to leave. Gaither, the team's starting left tackle the past two seasons, is expected to get one of the highest possible tenders (contract offers) available. The Ravens will probably assign a one-year, $3 million tender to Gaither, which would mean another team would have to give first- and third-round draft picks for the 6-foot-9, 340-pound tackle as compensation.

The themes of the stories in a newspaper's sports section in December tell you all you need to know about that city's NFL season. If the hometown team is rolling into the playoffs, the talk is about playing for home-field advantage, bye weeks and resting the stars. If it's a bubble team, then the stories try to figure out all the playoff scenarios and tiebreakers. But if your team is like the Ravens, then the attention turns to the offseason - namely the draft and free agency. We started looking at the draft last week and, as a result of Sunday's loss to Miami, the Ravens moved up in the draft pecking order - likely somewhere between the fifth and eighth positions.

WASHINGTON -- When the Washington Wizards reconvene at MCI Center next fall for the start of the 2005-2006 season, it will be with much higher expectations and a much different roster, one that will likely not include local favorites Juan Dixon and Steve Blake. The two former Maryland stars nearly helped the Wizards extend their surprising season Saturday night before losing to the Miami Heat, 99-95. The 17-3 run generated by Dixon and Blake that briefly gave Washington the lead was followed with a 5-0 run by the Heat that closed out a four-game sweep in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Ravens might have former Pro Bowl outside linebacker Jamir Miller visit soon after rescinding their contract tender to linebacker Shannon Taylor earlier this week, according to league sources. Sources said the Ravens have a strong interest in signing Miller, who could visit as early as next week and likely would compete with the recently re-signed Cornell Brown for the starting job. Miller, 29, missed all of last season after tearing his Achilles' tendon in the first exhibition game; he was released by the Cleveland Browns on Feb. 27, the day he was due a $14 million roster bonus.

Three days after restricted free agent Kyle Richardson signed an offer sheet with the Carolina Panthers, Ozzie Newsome said the Ravens would keep the 28-year-old punter. "We will match the offer," the Ravens' vice president of player personnel said last night from Palm Desert, Calif., where he is attending the NFL owners' meetings. "We will retain Kyle." Richardson, who led the league in punts inside the 20-yard line each of the past two seasons, signed a one-year, $850,000 offer sheet with the Panthers on Friday.

The Ravens are moving closer to a contract agreement with unrestricted free agent Jamie Sharper after a week of negotiations. Tony Agnone, Sharper's agent, and Pat Moriarty, the Ravens' chief negotiator, exchanged proposals yesterday on a new deal for the veteran outside linebacker. Ozzie Newsome, the Ravens' vice president of player personnel, would say only that conversations have been "ongoing since Monday," and insisted there was no deadline to finish negotiations. Last weekend, team owner Art Modell indicated he expected a resolution to the Sharper situation this week.
