When the Browns' move from Cleveland to Baltimore was announced Nov. 6, offensive tackle Tony Jones remembered the silence among the players.Jones could have been devastated, too, because he is one of the team's elder statesmen, with eight years of service, and his wife, Kamilla, is a Cleveland native.But Jones has remained calm."I used to be like that, where football came first, even before my family," said Jones. "I love Cleveland and appreciate the fans, but let's put this into perspective."

It's going to be interesting on draft day when the New York Jets are on the clock at No. 16, and then again before the Pittsburgh Steelers select at No. 24. According to several reports, the Jets want to select Alabama outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw and the Steelers like Crimson Tide inside linebacker Dont'a Hightower. Who doesn't? So, I imagine there will be some tense moments for general manager Ozzie Newsome and his staff Thursday night because either of these players could have a significant impact on the Ravens.

My assignment editor called to tell me that I had a new assignment: I needed to head to Towson to photograph members of the Maryland Army National Guard coming home from duty in Iraq. At the moment, I was in Columbia lying on the ground trying to get a gripping photo of a box turtle meeting a group of 6-year-olds. I had been told the troops would arrive at 12:30 p.m. At 11:50 a.m., I parked my car on a side street and began to eat lunch. I hadn't even gotten to those delicious hidden pickles in my chicken sandwich when I heard cheers erupting from up the street.

Ivy Jones likes to show off her auto-mechanics skills from a "classroom" that replicates a fully equipped car care center. Standing in an inspection bay, Jones, 19, handles the equipment with an expertise that she has developed while taking the 12-month course. "I never thought I would be interested in cars, but I have learned so much," she said. "I know what goes on under the hood. " Jones, the only young woman in a class of 13 automotive trainees, is studying at the National Center on Institutions and Alternatives Youth in Transition School in Woodlawn.

Because of salary cap limitations, the Ravens will likely have to choose to sign either free-agent defensive tackle Tony Siragusa of the Indianapolis Colts or Seattle Seahawks safety Robert Blackmon, according to team officials.Neither one is expected to be signed by the Ravens until after the annual NFL draft on April 19."Siragusa might be more important than Blackmon right now in the total scheme of things," Ravens owner Art Modell said. "We're not exactly wanting back there at safety. We've signed Stevon Moore.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Marvin Lewis is looking for answers.The Ravens' defensive coordinator, who switched from a 4-3 to a 3-4 last week because he's so short of players, saw his defense contain the Jaguars for three quarters and then give up 17 points in the fourth quarter on drives of 89, 90 and 66 yards.Lewis said the Jaguars did the same things in the second half that the Ravens stopped in the first half."You have to learn how to finish," he said. "You have to make the same plays throughout the game.

Ravens safety Eric Turner did not intend to be a spectator for most of yesterday's loss to New England. But after he sprained his left ankle early in the second quarter, Turner had little choice."

Jonathan Ogden was overly shy as a kid -- he once won a spelling bee while keeping his back to the audience -- and sometimes sensed others were gawking at his large physique. He has come a long way, although he still has trouble speaking in front of large groups.On the football field, though, Ogden talks a little trash in the trenches, where he has done things that have left opponents demoralized and have rendered NFL scouts speechless."You have to turn yourself into a different person out there," said the normally mild-mannered Ogden.

Quote of the year: Ravens owner Art Modell after 6-foot-8, 320-pound rookie G Jonathan Ogden took a red-eye flight from California to Baltimore, and then his mother called to request that he miss the first day of rookie training camp because he was tired. "Yeah, so we sent him to his room with some milk and cookies," said Modell.Fortune teller: Waived RB Leroy Hoard left some parting advice for TE Harold Bishop and RB Earnest Hunter after it had been speculated for weeks all three would be cut to free up money to sign Bam Morris and Eric Green: "When your coach says things like that about you that I've seen in the paper, he might as well start boxing his [stuff]

OK, Tony Jones, on a scale of zero to 100, what are the chances you'll return to the Ravens next season?"I won't say 50," Jones said.Would you say 40? How 'bout 30? Maybe 20?Jones paused."I would say," he sighed, "my chances ain't good."Sadly, he's right.Welcome to life under the NFL salary cap."If we were in 1990 or '91, we wouldn't even be talking about this," Ravens vice president of player personnel Ozzie Newsome said.But one reason we are is because the previous regime mismanaged the cap, signing players to lucrative deals under the misguided belief that the Browns were headed for the Super Bowl.

The Ravens' training camp is barely a week old, and the consensus opinion on rookie guard Jonathan Ogden , the first No. 1 draft pick in team history, has become clear. This kid can play. The Ravens selected Ogden , 21, because they could not resist his combination of size, athletic ability and intelligence. Then they moved the nation's premier collegiate offensive left tackle to left guard. So far, Ogden , 6 feet 8, 320 pounds, has done nothing to make them reconsider that decision.
