EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Ravens linebacker Jamie Sharper turned in a fine performance against the New York Jets yesterday, recording 11 tackles, the highest output of his young career.Does Sharper -- benched two weeks ago in favor of fellow rookie Cornell Brown -- believe he has reclaimed his starting position once and for all?"Coaches are going to make decisions that players don't like, but that's their job," Sharper said. "I just have to go out and practice hard and make plays in the game.

J.J. Reidy boarded a garish yellow RV parked in Harbor East and shared a vision: vast greenhouses in Baltimore raising produce to feed thousands, the plants feeding on nutrients from the waste of fish swimming in nearby tanks. In two minutes and 35 seconds of video time, the graduate business student and would-be entrepreneur delivered the pitch he fashioned with his business partner, Julie Buisson, wrapping it up with a punchy closing line: "We believe we can feed our city in our city.

JAMIE SHARPER has always lived in the shadow of fellow Ravens linebackers Ray Lewis and Peter Boulware, and still does. Lewis has taken his game to another level in recent weeks, and Boulware seems to have found a comfort zone at defensive end with four sacks against the Minnesota Vikings in the season finale. And Sharper? Well, he had five tackles against Minnesota and returned a fumble for the touchdown that sealed the 19-3 win against the Vikings. Last week against the Dolphins, Sharper had four tackles, including one sack, knocked down a pass at the line of scrimmage and forced a fumble.

Former Ravens running back Damien Berry's Super Bowl XLVII ring has been sold for $43,008, according to Goldin Auctions. A former reserve player from the University of Miami who spent the 2012 season on injured reserve, Berry sold his ring and it was put up for consignment through a third party. Berry initially disputed that he had sold the ring before Goldin Auctions provided proof of a sales agreement and check made out to the former NFL player. Berry is no longer disputing the sale.

Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda yesterday benched rookie outside linebacker Jamie Sharper, one of the team's top draft picks, for another rookie, Cornell Brown, at the weak-side position for the team's game against the Miami Dolphins Sunday at Memorial Stadium.Sharper, who missed several weeks of training camp as a contract holdout, was the team's top pick in the second round out of Virginia and, overall, was the 34th player selected in the NFL's annual draft.He had started all six games for the Ravens this season and is ninth on the team in tackles with 24.Marchibroda would not go into specifics about the change, but several high-ranking team officials said defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis had considered benching Sharper for weeks because of missed assignments.

Before Sunday, rookie linebacker Jamie Sharper had never been benched. Fellow rookie linebacker Cornell Brown had never started a professional game.Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda said the change did both of them some good.Not that those role switches mattered in the larger picture -- a 24-13 Miami Dolphins victory that represented the low point of the Ravens' season. The Dolphins extended the Ravens' losing streak to three by controlling the line of scrimmage, running over them for a season-high 148 rushing yards.

As Peter Boulware and Jamie Sharper warmed up on the Memorial Stadium field before their official NFL debuts, the butterflies were wildly active in the stomachs of the Ravens' rookie linebackers.Between the opening kickoff and the hard-to-swallow ending of yesterday's 28-27 loss to Jacksonville, the Ravens' starting outside linebackers made their share of plays and committed their share of miscues. All of which was to be expected, according to middle linebacker Ray Lewis, who stood in their shoes a year ago."

Ravens linebacker Jamie Sharper's selection in Monday's expansion draft by the Houston Texans is a "done deal," according to league sources. Two pieces of evidence support such a claim. First, Sharper's locker at the Ravens' Owings Mills training facility has been cleared out, and the nameplate over the locker has been removed. Second, sources say the Texans plan to have Sharper, along with a handful of other players, in Houston for the draft as part of the ceremony. "There is a strong chance that Jamie will be taken in the expansion draft, and we already have plans in place if that were to happen," said Ravens senior vice president of football operations Ozzie Newsome.

The Ravens pulled their five-year, $23 million offer to linebacker Jamie Sharper off the table yesterday, a league source said. Considered the best defensive player available in free agency, Sharper had appeared willing to accept the Ravens' latest proposal. However, vice president of player personnel Ozzie Newsome denied the shelving of any offer and indicated Sharper remains a part of the team's plans. "We are re-evaluating our situation with Jamie with the hopes of still being able to re-sign him," Newsome said.

It's minutiae that has been lost amid the NFL career records established by Shannon Sharpe and Rod Woodson in recent weeks, but it illustrates the manner in which Jamie Sharper has grown into a veteran force in the NFL: No other active Raven has started as many consecutive games as the fifth-year linebacker. He came into 2001 second to Michael McCrary, but last month the defensive end went down with season-ending knee surgery that stopped his Ravens' record at 73 consecutive starts, so Sharper's 69 straight tops that category.

A parade of Baltimore police officers, from rookies to a 30-year veteran, told City Council members Wednesday night that training programs developed by the department have sharpened their skills and helped build camaraderie among the ranks. But questioning about spending related to those programs was postponed as council members sought additional information from the agency. Pointing to recent police problems, such as a towing kickback scandal that is in court this week, City Councilman Brandon M. Scott called the hearing last month to question the effectiveness and costs of the training programs.

The biggest answer that came out of Friday's preseason game for the Ravens is that they are better this season at cornerback — perhaps much better. Jimmy Smith, the first-round pick who came with a caution flag, held his own against the Kansas City Chiefs' Dwayne Bowe in his M&T Bank Stadium debut at left corner. Cary Williams, a third-year player out of Washburn University, might have taken the lead for the starting job on the right side with another strong outing. Smith is 6 feet 2, smooth and already plays with the nerve of a veteran.

Quick look : Both of these teams looked like they lost their edge late in the regular season, but both rebounded after having two weeks between the end of the season and the start of the playoffs. Rust no longer is an issue for the Saints or Vikings. The NFC championship game is all about two quarterbacks and their explosive offenses. Brett Favre wants one more shot at a Super Bowl to cement his legacy. Drew Brees wants his first. Both defenses might be a little susceptible in the back end. So whichever team gets better pressure should be in better position to win the game.

For all but one week of the year, the historic East Course at Baltimore Country Club is a lush, well-manicured private sanctuary for members, a tough but fair test that everyone from scratch players to those who shoot in triple digits can appreciate. But during the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship, which begins Thursday in Timonium, the iconic club long known as Five Farms is transformed. This lovely octogenarian that was laid out by legendary golf architect A.W. Tillinghast in the 1920s and renovated four years ago by Kentucky designer Keith Foster has a bit of a modern-day beast added to its timeless beauty.

The Prime Rib is a restaurant living in the past. It's a restaurant Donald Draper of Mad Men, the cable TV show set in Manhattan in the '60s, would enjoy - a place where wheeler-dealers took their beautiful wives, ate prime steaks and drank chilled martinis. The service, by tuxedoed waiters, is top-notch. That goes almost without saying. Since it opened in 1965, the Prime Rib has been Baltimore's answer to the New York supper club. Reviewers - including me - have swooned over the leopard-print carpeting, the black walls, the sensuous, gilt-framed paintings, the baby grand.

Larry M. Wolf, a talent scout for emerging retail businesses during his many years as a top Rouse Co. leasing executive who also discovered that pushcarts added profits and atmosphere to shopping malls, died of pancreatic cancer Thursday at his Naples, Fla., home. The North Baltimore resident was 72. "Larry was always on the prowl for a new and different merchant," said Mathias J. DeVito, who was chief executive officer of the development firm from 1973 to 1984. "He had merchandising at his fingertips, and he took chances with people who were new in their field."

It is more than sheer coincidence that former Virginia linebacker Jamie Sharper is sharing a locker with ex-Florida State defensive end Peter Boulware.Boulware is the Ravens' top draft pick. Sharper was the first of two second-round selections. They plan to grow together."It will be nice having the ACC represented," said Sharper, who will start at weak-side linebacker, opposite Boulware. "He is playing a new position, so there may be some things I can help him with. Then I'm looking forward to learning from Ray Lewis."

Jamie Sharper played perhaps the most inspired game of his three-year career. Peter Boulware, growing more comfortable dealing with a shoulder problem that has saddled him all year, turned in his best performance of 1999.And together, the Ravens' two outside linebackers took some of the spotlight and the pressure off middle linebacker Ray Lewis, the quarterback of the 4-3 defense.Not that Lewis was absent in yesterday's 17-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns. With eight solo tackles, two assists and a sack, he was typical Ray Lewis.

A suggestion for Dr. Levi Watkins Jr.: Next year, get Betty Winston Baye to deliver the keynote address at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration ceremony. Watkins was the brains behind the first MLK commemoration in 1982. Over the years, keynote speakers have included King's widow, Coretta Scott King, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, singer-actor-activist Harry Belafonte, author Maya Angelou, former NAACP President and Chief Executive Officer Kweisi Mfume and actors Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. This year's keynote speaker was to be the Rev. Al Sharpton, who might be considered more controversial than the people mentioned above, and not by just a tad, either.

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Vultures are circling John McCain's campaign bus. The candidate formerly known as America's most admired politician is in serious trouble in the presidential contest, his detractors say. The problem: He's "too old, too Washington and too Iraq war," as one ex-supporter put it. McCain, 70, is no longer the Republican front-runner, but the whispers out of rival camps that his candidacy is on the verge of collapsing seem premature....
