Tyler Spear and his Loyola teammates made repeating as champions look easy on Wednesday. Spear won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association title race for the second straight year at Oregon Ridge Park. The senior led the way as the No. 5 Dons placed three runners in the top 10 en route to its fifth consecutive A Conference team title. The conditions were far better than last year, when the race took place on a gusty day with temperatures in the low 40s. Spear beat out rival Mikey Singer of McDonogh by about 12 seconds that day - and fared even better this time.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made a smart move this week by cutting safety Michael Huff and defensive end Marcus Spears. You're never happy when someone losses their job, but Harbaugh set the tone going into a very big week. He gave out a warning after the Ravens lost to the Steelers that the team was willing to make changes or do whatever necessary to win. That in itself kept the players on edge over the bye week, and those announced cuts on Wednesday sent a message and created a sense of urgency.

Eleven days ago, Ravens coach John Harbaugh vowed to do “whatever it takes” to turn around a season headed in the wrong direction. As Ravens' players reported to the team facility Wednesday and learned of the release of defensive end Marcus Spears and free safety Michael Huff, two veterans signed this past offseason as part of the organization's defensive makeover, they had officially been put on notice. “It shows that everybody is going to be held accountable whether it's a rookie guy or a veteran guy,” fullback Vonta Leach said.

When rookie defensive lineman Brandon Williams arrived at the office Wednesday and learned that his mentor was no longer employed at the company, he reached for his phone and typed him a text message. “Thanks for everything you've done for me,” Williams wrote. “Thanks for teaching me how to be a pro.” The release of defensive end Marcus Spears and free safety Michael Huff caught many players, including Williams, off guard Wednesday. The veteran players who have seen teammates come and go before quickly shrugged it off. But for a rookie like Williams, saying goodbye to Spears was a new experience.

The Ravens got three potentially key players back to practice in the team's final full workout before Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Starting wide receiver Marlon Brown (hamstring), wide receiver/kick returner Deonte Thompson (concussion) and starting cornerback Lardarius Webb (hamstring) all were practicing for the first time this week. That bodes well for their availability on Sunday. Pro Bowl returner Jacoby Jones (knee) also was practicing for the third straight day. He's missed the past three games.

The reunion between former Dallas Cowboys defensive linemen Marcus Spears and Chris Canty was prompted by the Ravens' need for an influx of size and toughness at the line of scrimmage. The veteran defensive linemen entered the league together as rookies in Dallas in 2005, with Canty signing with the New York Giants five years ago. Now, they're going to work in tandem again after Spears signed a two-year, $3.55 million maximum value deal with the Ravens and Canty signed a three-year, $8 million deal.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is back to his old theme: "right player, right price. " He is hustling around the NFL these days searching flea markets and basements trying to find player bargains to fill out his roster to start the 2013 season. The Ravens, who have little salary cap room, might be able to sign a big-name free agent like linebacker Elvis Dumervil or James Harrison if they cut a veteran or two, but they're basically in the hunt for stop-gap veterans who still might have a year or two left.
