The Ravens are performing plenty of due diligence on Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer. Wide receivers coach Bobby Engram is traveling to the Hoosiers' Bloomington campus to conduct a private workout for Latimer, according to a league source. Latimer also has a private workout for the Seattle Seahawks and is regarded as a rising draft prospect with six official predraft visits, per the source. The Ravens attended Latimer's Pro Day workout where he ran the 40-yard dash unofficially today in 4.39 and 4.43 seconds and had a 39-inch vertical leap.

The brain injury Navy slotback Will McKamey suffered Saturday in Annapolis came during a noncontact practice drill, his parents wrote in an email distributed by an athletic department spokesman at the academy Monday. McKamey, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound freshman from Knoxville, Tenn., was airlifted from the practice field to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he underwent surgery and, as of Monday, remained in critical condition in a coma. The first padded drills of spring practice typically do not include any contact, and McKamey "did not sustain a bad hit or unusual or extreme contact in practice," his parents wrote.

Holding a whiteboard, the University of Maryland, College Park students scrawled their complaints and posed for a picture. "My name is Justin and I spent $114 on ONE textbook," a student wrote. "My name is Jeff and I spent $736 on textbooks," wrote another. The images, posted online by the Student Government Association in recent months, are designed to highlight the rapid rise in the price of college textbooks over the past decade. This semester, the University System of Maryland is exploring ways to bring that cost to zero with "open-source" electronic textbooks — the latest experiment in changing the way students in Maryland and across the nation are taught.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles are working on a minor league deal with right-hander Luis Ayala, according to industry sources. Ayala, who was a valuable reliever on the Orioles' 2012 playoff team, was released by the Washington Nationals on Wednesday following a rough spring training in which he allowed nine runs and 10 hits in six innings. The move would give the Orioles added bullpen depth with a familiar reliever. The 36-year-old reliever would report to minor league camp in Twin Lakes Park.

Maryland Congressman Steny Hoyer has tirelessly promoted his "Make It in America" campaign, an initiative to advance policies to help the country regain its role as a leading global manufacturer. For too long, we have seen American businesses relocate their manufacturing processes and their jobs overseas because, among other reasons, their energy costs were too high for their products to be competitive on the world stage. Today, U.S. businesses are moving manufacturing back to the United States, opening new factories or expanding their existing operations and hiring new workers thanks to the growing abundance of low-priced natural gas.

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.

Maryland will likely dump all or part of the state's health insurance exchange website and adopt Connecticut's system, a move that could make it the first state to abandon a dysfunctional site. Officials with Maryland's exchange plan to turn to the "Connecticut solution," which was developed largely by Deloitte Consulting LLC and considered among the most successful in enrolling consumers in private health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, said two sources with knowledge of the situation.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Ervin Santana sweepstakes have come to a conclusion. After being courted heavily by the Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays recently, Santana has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Atlanta Braves, the club announced Wednesday. The deal is reportedly worth $14.1 million, the amount of the qualifying offer he rejected from the Kansas City Royals in the offseason. The longer Santana remained unsigned this week -- especially after the Orioles and Blue Jays emerged as frontrunners over the weekend -- it appeared that the 31-year-old would eventually go to the Braves, who suddenly need rotation help after injuries to starters Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy.

The Ravens aren't offering wide receiver Tandon Doss a restricted free agent tender, according to a source. Doss is now scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent Tuesday. The Ravens haven't ruled out the possibility of bringing Doss back on a new contract, according to a source. The Ravens could have retained Doss with a $1.43 million restricted one-year tender, but opted not to do so. They have brokered a two-year contract with reserve linebacker Albert McClellan, according to a source, rather than tender him as a restricted free agent on the low tender of $1.43 million.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The ink has only just dried on the Orioles' monumental four-year deal with starter Ubaldo Jimenez, but the club remains interested in acquiring at least one other big-ticket free agent. The Orioles have intensified their pursuit of free-agent designated hitter Kendrys Morales and right-handed starter Ervin Santana, according to industry sources. The club has been linked to both players throughout the offseason, but did not appear to be in serious negotiations recently as Jimenez signed a four-year, $50 million deal, the largest and longest contract given to a free-agent pitcher in franchise history.
