It may be the oddest timing for a contract extension announcement in recent memory - on the eve of the first American League Championship Series game at Camden Yards in 17 years and just weeks away from free agency. But the Orioles took care of a major chunk of offseason business Thursday by agreeing to a three-year deal worth $40 million with shortstop J.J. Hardy. He's locked up through 2017 with a team option for 2018. “Is there ever a bad time to announce J.J. continuing as an Oriole?

Veteran outfielder Harold Baines has accepted the offer of salary arbitration from the Oakland Athletics, ending speculation that he might sign with the Orioles.Baines, who grew up and lives on the Eastern Shore, had expressed interest in signing with the Orioles last week, but his status as a Type-A free agent probably kept the club from taking a serious interest in him.If he had declined arbitration and failed to sign with the A's by Jan. 8, he would have become a non-compensation free agent and could have been signed without losing a first-round choice in the June amateur draft.

Dorsey, who had five catches for 52 yards for Green Bay during the preseason, only had 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at Maryland in 2013.

Angel, an aging 17-year-old giraffe born and raised at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , was euthanized Tuesday, officials said. Angel long struggled with leg and back pain, which worsened recently, Dr. Ellen Bronson, the zoo's chief veterinarian, said in a statement. "While we were able to provide her with pain medicine which made her more comfortable, we realized that her quality of life was declining and the decision was made to euthanize her," Bronson said. She is the fourth older female giraffe to die at the zoo since 2008.

Shawn Taylor has been on the football coaching staff at Robinson High School in Tampa, Fla., since 2001. The school has produced former Alabama star Javier Arenas as well as other successful Football Bowl Subdivision players. For years, Taylor said, dozens of colleges would stop by and check in about players during the spring. Maryland wasn't really a presence, he said. This year, in particular, is different. The Terps have been down there. They are coming up in conversations.

Wide receiver Deonte Thompson was cut by the Ravens on Wednesday, marking the second time in the past five days he's been released. The Ravens replaced him on the roster by claiming former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Lawrence Guy off waivers. He was cut by the Chargers on Tuesday. The Ravens need depth on the defensive line with Chris Canty and Timmy Jernigan both dealing with knee injuries. Canty didn't practice Wednesday. Jernigan has a meniscus injury that kept him from playing against the Cleveland Browns and is still hoping to avoid surgery.

A s the Ravens left the field Thursday night, they had more than just a 26-6 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers . They also had reasons to be encouraged about their defense. The Ravens didn't allow a touchdown. They forced three turnovers and scored off two. They contained Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for most of the game, and they basically pounded the Steelers into submission. At the end, Pittsburgh was worn down and the Ravens had imposed their will.

The Canadian Football League quickly threw up a stop sign for any potential overtures to former Ravens star running back Ray Rice. Rice won't be playing north of the border. CFL commissioner Mark Cohon issued a statement saying the league will honor the NFL's indefinite suspension of Rice, whose $35 million contract was terminated Monday by the Ravens after an ugly video surfaced of him punching Janay Palmer in a casino elevator. CFL teams were informed that Rice can't be signed to a contract or added to a negotiation list.
