The questions about Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith's immaturity surfaced again over the weekend after he was arrested and charged with failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer during an incident in a Towson restaurant Saturday night. The arrest might have raised some red flags among team officials about a possible long-term contract for their promising young cornerback, as he further embarrassed a franchise beset by off-the-field incidents during this offseason. Since the NFL season ended in February, five Ravens have been arrested; the other 31 NFL teams have combined for 14. Smith hasn't been issued a court date for his incident, but maybe he should be charged with arrogance and stupidity, too. That's enough already.

The Ravens released a statement Sunday night from owner Steve Bisciotti on the death of former Baltimore Colts defensive lineman Art Donovan. “We lost a friend, one of the finest men and one of the greatest characters we were fortunate to meet in this community and in this business. “Baltimore is now without one of its best and someone who was a foundation for the tremendous popularity of football in our area. The world is not as bright tonight because we lost someone who could make us all smile.”

Steve Bisciotti, I wish you could read the e-mails I'm getting this week from Ravens fans. Some are thoughtful and constructive. Some are angry enough to singe your corneas. And some make you want to scream "WHY DO YOU WATCH THIS TEAM IF IT MAKES YOU SO MISERABLE?!" Sure, I know that, as the Ravens owner, you hear plenty from the fans, too. I'm told you check out all the messages directed to you on the team's web site. And you probably get an earful from Ravens fans when you're down in College Park watching Terps basketball and hanging with your pal, Gary Williams.

Joe Flacco will play his last game under his rookie contract against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVII, but owner Steve Bisciotti made clear that he intends to keep the quarterback in a Ravens uniform for a long time. Bisciotti said Thursday that the two sides were "real close" to a deal when the talks were tabled just before the start of this season, and he's "very comfortable" that an agreement on a long-term contract extension for Flacco will be reached in the coming months.

When the Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2000, Steve Bisciotti was a minority owner, content to stay in the background and enjoy the week with family and friends. Bisciotti completed the purchase of the franchise from Art Modell in 2004 and his team is back at the Super Bowl. Bisciotti arrived in New Orleans last night and again is adamant about remaining in the background this week. He did sit down for a 35-minute interview with select reporters this morning and discussed Joe Flacco 's future with the Ravens, his role in the firing of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron , and Modell's Hall of Fame chances.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti knows that Ray Lewis and Ed Reed will be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame the moment they become eligible. With former Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams, who was nominated last week for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame , Bicsciotti feels that a little politicking for his longtime friend couldn't hurt. Realizing that the 68-year-old Williams is as resolute about not lobbying for votes as he was unwilling to deal with certain AAU coaches when it came to recruiting their players, Bisciotti is confident that he and others -- including some of Williams' former competitors -- will to take up the fight to get Williams honored later this year.

Steve Bisciotti puffs on a cigar at his estate overlooking the Severn River, soaking in the memories that have grounded him on his rise to becoming the Ravens' new principal owner. The walls on "his side of the house" - his wife's half is the nonsmoking part - are lined with the faces of former Baltimore Colts such as Johnny Unitas and Raymond Berry. The snapshots were autographed at training camps in Westminster where he and his father made annual summer trips. Inside the garage of the white plantation-style mansion is his first car - a 1969 white convertible MGB that took three years of saving to buy. Its license plates bear his old nickname, "Shots."

— Ravens running back Ray Rice rejected a plea offer Thursday that would spare him jail time on charges that he assaulted his then-fiancee, and instead asked the court to put him in a program under which he could eventually clear his record. With his status in the NFL still undetermined, Rice made his first court appearance since being charged by an Atlantic County grand jury with one count of third-degree aggravated assault. He is accused of knocking Janay Palmer unconscious during an altercation in the Revel Casino in February, an incident that authorities say was caught on video by a security camera.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A year ago, the Ravens' contingent arrived at the NFL owners' meetings riding a wave of emotion. About a month and a half earlier, the Ravens finalized a stunning playoff run by beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and to capture the organization's second Lombardi Trophy. In the days that followed, they enjoyed the highs of a grand parade and the lows of watching part of the nucleus of the team get torn apart through retirements, trades and free-agent defections.

A year ago at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti couldn't walk 10 feet without being congratulated for his team's victory in Super Bowl XLVII about a month and a half earlier. This year, however, has brought different circumstances for the Ravens' owner. His team finished 8-8 last season, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The offseason has brought some off-the-field turmoil with three Ravens getting arrested in a 22-day span, including star running back Ray Rice, who was charged with simple assault in February after an altercation with his fiancée, Janay Palmer.

At some point over the next seven weeks, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is planning on getting together with Ravens wide receivers and tight ends for informal workouts to begin preparation for the 2014 season. Tight end Dennis Pitta acknowledged that Wednesday at his news conference following the signing of his five-year, $32 million deal . “We've talked about it, and it's nothing set in stone right now, but I know that's something Joe wants to get done,” Pitta said.

Coming less than a week after running back Ray Rice was arrested following an alleged physical altercation with his fiancée, the timing of wide receiver Deonte Thompson's arrest Friday on charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia was extremely poor. Owner Steve Bisciotti and the organization's top decisions makers have worked very hard to change the image of the franchise. Two arrests in a week's span doesn't diminish that effort, though it's certainly not a good look and there will be a lot of pressure on members of the organization to behave the rest of the offseason.

The Ravens already have a theme for the 2014 season. It's called "One Chance," produced by Steve Bisciotti, written by Ozzie Newsome and starring John Harbaugh. In a one-on-one interview after the annual "State of the Ravens" news conference earlier this month, Bisciotti warned that he wouldn't stand for failure. "I'll be more apt to get my way next year if their solutions don't change the problems," Bisciotti said. "That's fair, that's where I am as owner. "They know they've failed, they know they need to change, and to make improvements.
