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.

Cornerback Cary Williams and wide receiver Tandon Doss got into a heated argument during Monday's practice but they were separated before the altercation got physical. It all started when Williams and wide receiver Torrey Smith exchanged a few words, with Williams accusing Smith of holding him. Then Doss, who sat out the practice with a minor hamstring injury, began taunting Williams loudly from near the huddle. After Doss lobbed insults at Williams from about 10 yards away for a minute or two, he finally got under the cornerback's skin.

While most of his teammates are preparing for Sundays, Tyrod Taylor's time to shine is during the week. On the practice fields hidden behind team headquarters, the Ravens' coaching staff unleashes him on the defense as the scout-team quarterback, letting him fling footballs downfield, escape from the pocket and run top-secret trick plays that were scribbled on a chalkboard specifically for him. Once defenders were done grasping at air as...

“You don't replace Anquan” Boldin. Those are the words of Tandon Doss, the man who is expected to be one of the leading combatants in the offseason royal rumble to replace the veteran receiver who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in March. In fact, the Ravens selected Doss in the fourth round of the 2011 draft -- two rounds after fellow wide receiver Torrey Smith -- with an eye toward this very moment, when the Ravens would be moving on without Boldin. The story goes that in the months leading up to the 2011 draft, quarterback Joe Flacco scribbled his name on a list of the wide receivers he would like the Ravens to draft.

Player A has been targeted 26 times in his past four games, catching 14 passes for 179 yards and no TDs. Player B has been targeted 23 times in his past four games, catching 13 passes for 239 yards and no TDs. Player A is Anquan Boldin, whom the Ravens traded to the San Francisco 49ers during the offseason. Tandon Doss, the player the Ravens drafted -- and re-signed -- to be Boldin's replacement, is Player B. I am not presenting these two stat lines to suggest the 3-4 Ravens don't miss Boldin.

The local uproar surrounding Anquan Boldin's performance against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday was both predictable and understandable. However, I'm not sure the attention is in the right place. The Ravens clearly used the money that they saved by trading Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers ($6 million) to rebuild their defense, which was a necessity. Elvis Dumervil certainly would not be in Baltimore if Boldin stayed, and Daryl Smith and Chris Canty may not be either.

Ravens wide receiver Tandon Doss was in a candid, introspective mood Sunday following the most successful play of his NFL career. Released during the final roster cutdown and then brought back when Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones got hurt, Doss delivered one of the biggest plays of the Ravens' 30-9 victory over the Houston Texans. Doss celebrated his 24th birthday with an 82-yard punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter, the fifth-longest punt return in franchise history.

When Billy Lynch first realized that Tandon Doss might allow his promising football career to implode, the Indiana assistant coach did not call the wide receiver into his office or even grab him by the facemask and stare him in the eyes. Lynch took Doss, then a true freshman, into the stands at Indiana's Memorial Stadium after practice. Still wearing his pads, Doss followed Lynch as he climbed toward the last few rows of bleachers resting in the shadow of the press box. "I knew then that with a kid like Tandon, the biggest impact would be for him to have to stare down at that field," said Lynch, now the receivers coach at Rice in Houston.

Tandon Doss doesn't get as much playing time as other wide receivers in the Ravens offense. But that didn't prevent him from chiding himself for dropping two balls in the end zone in Sunday's 24-9 win against the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard playoff round. On second down-and-goal from Indianapolis' 5-yard line in the second quarter, Doss ran an in route from the left side of the formation, but quarterback Joe Flacco's pass glanced off Doss' hands as he dove at the goal line.

Stirred from slumber, Tandon Doss looked at his phone the morning of Sept. 6 and saw the familiar 410 area code. The Ravens were calling, but Doss had turned the page on a return. Too much bad blood. Too many raw nerves. "I thought I was done here," Doss said Friday. Back home in Indiana after being cut by the Ravens, Doss had been waiting for another opportunity to prove himself in the NFL. He had watched his old team lose its season opener the night before. And he knew about the knee injury Jacoby Jones had suffered only because a Ravens staffer had sent him a text message when it happened.

As they tried to chip away at a two-score deficit against the Buffalo Bills last weekend, the Ravens used a number of combinations at the wide receiver position. Perhaps the most promising trio featured rookie Marlon Brown lined up in the slot with speedsters Torrey Smith and Deonte Thompson on the outside. Their time on the field together was short-lived, though, as Thompson left the game with a concussion after making a 33-yard reception on the sideline. Still, with Thompson back in the mix and starting wide receiver Jacoby Jones closer to returning, we could see more of Brown in the slot in the coming weeks.

The competition for the final couple of wide receiver spots was the most intriguing Ravens storyline heading into their final preseason game and nothing that happened during the team's 24-21 loss to the St. Louis Rams last night changed that perception. With the three roster locks at the position -- Torrey Smith , Jacoby Jones and Brandon Stokley -- being held out of the game by Ravens coach John Harbaugh , the opportunity shifted to Tandon Doss , Aaron Mellette and Marlon Brown -- and all three responded.

After an unimpressive rookie campaign that ended with zero catches in just six games, Tandon Doss might be reasonably concerned about his status with the Ravens. But the organization's fourth-round pick in 2011 said he's not in the business of trying to figure out what the coaches think. “I never know,” Doss said after Tuesday's practice at the team's headquarters in Owings Mills. “I don't know what the coaches are thinking. I go with the ones one day, the twos the next day. I've just got to keep doing what I can do.” It's worth noting that when the offense opened Friday night's preseason game against the Detroit Lions in a three-receiver set without Torrey Smith (who was battling a sprained ankle)

Safety Bernard Pollard , who has missed the past two games after aggravating a rib/chest injury, returned to practice Wednesday. It's his first appearance at practice since the days leading up to the Ravens' Dec. 9 game against the Washington Redskins. The only two Ravens missing from practice Wednesday were right guard Marshal Yanda (ankle) and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (knee/shoulder). Yanda and Ngata both played in Sunday's victory against the New York Giants.

Sunday's release of Tommy Streeter , Rashaad Carter and Gerrard Sheppard (Towson, McDonogh) leaves the Ravens with seven healthy wide receivers on their roster. It also narrows down what might be the most intriguing roster competition left before the regular season begins. As the Ravens prepare for their final preseason game Thursday against the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome, the makeup of their receiving corps for the Sept. 5 regular-season opener remains undecided.

Since the start of training camp a month ago, quarterback Joe Flacco has watched as his top two tight ends went down and prominent young wide-outs failed to step up. He saw the Ravens bring in veteran pass-catchers Brandon Stokley, Dallas Clark and Visanthe Shiancoe. And he has recently gotten a look at rookies Aaron Mellette and Marlon Brown running with the first-team offense. The Ravens are still looking to find the right combination at those positions and Flacco is still trying to get a read on the Ravens' motley crew of new receivers.
