When the Ravens employed outside linebacker Jarret Johnson, he built a reputation as one of the grittiest players in franchise history. Now with the San Diego Chargers, Johnson vouched for new Ravens defensive lineman Lawrence Guy. Guy was claimed off waivers by the Ravens this week. They're dealing with injuries at the position, with rookie Timmy Jernigan ruled out with a knee injury for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers and starting defensive end Chris Canty questionable with a knee injury.

Spuck of Mercer, Pa., has filed a motion against the NFL to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania for "a temporary emergency injunction" on the basis that the Chargers should not have been in the postseason because of a missed call in the Week 17 game between San Diego and Kansas City.

The Ravens have struck a one-year, $730,000 contract with veteran cornerback Derek Cox. The team cut undrafted rookie wide receiver Jace Davis to create a spot for Cox, who is expected to play against the New Orleans Saints  Thursday. His salary-cap figure is $570,000 under the veteran minimum salary benefit. The Ravens are thin at cornerback with injuries to top corners Jimmy Smith (chest bruise), Lardarius Webb (lower back) and Asa Jackson (sprained ankle). Cox was cut this week by the Minnesota Vikings after recording five tackles in three preseason games.

San Diego Chargers linebacker Steve Foley, who will miss the entire season after being shot by an off-duty police officer, began his career in Cincinnati, where he played four seasons. Even former Bengals are getting into trouble these days. What's next, Ken Anderson jaywalking? Boobie Clark parking in a loading zone?

In the middle of Wednesday's Terrell Owens melodrama, the Ravens opened their locker room for interviews. Reporters rushed in and asked players about Owens instead of the Ravens' upcoming game against the San Diego Chargers. It was a familiar scene. Over the years, the Ravens have endured more than their share of off-field controversies that dominated conversations and distracted players. The difference this time, of course, was it was another team's player, not a Raven, who was making the wrong kind of news.

During yesterday's practice, several Ravens players were questioning middle linebacker Ray Lewis about whether there will be any changes to his much-anticipated pre-game dance, which is expected to return Sunday after a yearlong hiatus. Lewis' response: His attention has been on the moves of San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson and not his own.

Shawne Merriman dreamed of becoming either a professional football player or a professional wrestler while growing up in Upper Marlboro. While his NFL dream was completed with his retirement last year, his wrestling dream is on its way to becoming a reality. These days, Merriman also keeps busy between his responsibilities as a football analyst and the work he is doing to help grow his “Lights Out” apparel and accessory line. “When people say they're living a dream, it feels like that,” said Merriman, who was a first-round pick of the San Diego Chargers in 2005 after a standout college career at Maryland.

Standing at his locker Monday night after a practice spent chasing down running backs and quarterbacks, Courtney Upshaw brooded about a few plays that had eluded him. Visibly tired, Upshaw shook his head. “I've got to do better,” he said. “We all know I've got to improve. Every year, I want to get better. That's what it's all about.” Quiet and introspective, Upshaw is keenly aware of his NFL reputation - but looking to burnish it. The Ravens' burly strong-side linebacker is known as a stout run stopper whose toughness keeps running backs from scampering outside for first downs.

When the Ravens signed veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks last week after successful minicamp tryouts for both, it was viewed as even more unlikely that they'd make a serious run at Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers who had surprisingly been released by the Kansas City Chiefs. Looking to upgrade their cornerback depth, the Ravens had some conversations about adding Flowers, but ultimately others teams coveted the 28-year-old more. One of those teams, the San Diego Chargers, have agreed today to a one-year deal with Flowers, according to multiple reports.

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.

While free-agent wide receiver Steve Smith was in town visiting the Ravens, they rolled out the red carpet. He had a nice dinner, an evening on the town, and private meetings with general manager Ozzie Newsome, coach John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. Apparently, Smith was impressed, as he signed with the Ravens and canceled visits or negotiations with the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Chargers. The Ravens are in Phase III of trying to rebuild a serious playoff contender, and Smith, despite being 34, has filled a major need.

Wearing an “I Love Baltimore” hat, wide receiver and kick returner Jacoby Jones admitted that he took less money to re-sign with the Ravens and return to a place that he called “home.” The Ravens can only hope free agent wide receiver Steve Smith eventually feels the same way. According to sources, Smith is scheduled to visit the Ravens on Friday. He was expected to arrive in Baltimore on Thursday evening. After monitoring the Smith and Carolina Panthers fallout from afar, the Ravens have their first opportunity to make their pitch to the five-time Pro Bowl receiver after he was released following 13 NFL seasons with the Panthers.

Kyle Boller apparently prefers life with a beauty queen to being smacked around by 300-pound defensive linemen. One day after signing with the San Diego Chargers, the former Ravens quarterback has reportedly retired, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. He's just 31 years old, but after eight seasons Boller has had enough. He played with the Ravens, Rams and Raiders. He was selected by the Ravens in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft as the 19th overall pick.

With the Ravens out of the playoffs, thanks to their miserable play the last two weeks of the season, I promised myself I was only going to watch football this weekend - not write about it. So, here I am writing. Why? I can't resist commenting on CBS Sports giving viewers of Sunday's playoff game between the Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers exactly what I have been lobbying for all year: a sideline reporter. Tracy Wolfson joined Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, and she provided viewers with some of the things I wanted in a Ravens telecast: injury reports, condition of the field, a sense of what was happening on the benches.
