When the new-look Ravens open minicamp in two weeks, they will welcome back a familiar face. Running back Jamal Lewis will return to the practice field for the first time since suffering a season-ending knee injury on Aug. 8. The Ravens' leading rusher during their Super Bowl championship run in 2000, Lewis is expected to participate in the non-contact camp that runs from April 26 to April 28. "Everybody's anxious to see him actually out there," Ravens...

Now the owner of a five-year, $32 million contract, Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta didn't have any grand plans for his financial windfall. He did know that he wasn't prepared to let his best friend on the team, quarterback Joe Flacco, off the hook just yet. "I didn't get Joe Flacco money, so he'll still be paying for dinners," Pitta said. Pitta also joked that he had no plans to stop at McDonald's, which was Flacco's first stop after he signed his historic six-year, $120.6 million contract extension last March.

Ravens offensive guard Kelechi Osemele has made enough progress after undergoing back surgery that he's expected to participate in the first day of the offensive conditioning program in April. Osemele had a herniated disk repaired in November. "K.O., we expect him to start the offseason program," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said at the NFL scouting combine. "He's in there working out. K.O. is way far along in his training. He's doing great. He's in there every day. " The Ravens haven't decided where Osemele will line up next season.

AND THE WINNER IS…: During a full-team exercise pitting the first offense against the first defense, the defense stood supreme. In five snaps, quarterback Joe Flacco was sacked by defensive end Trevor Pryce, linebacker Jarret Johnson and strong safety Dawan Landry. The defense jumped offsides once and Flacco completed a mid-range pass to wide receiver Anquan Boldin. PLAY OF THE DAY: That's not to say, however, that the offense was a complete failure. Backup quarterback Marc Bulger and wide receiver Donte' Stallworth connected on a perfect up-and-out that left cornerback Cary Williams several yards behind and Stallworth streaking to the end zone for a 78-yard touchdown.

After a roller-coaster ending in a Ravens victory and enduring a run of post-game interviews, tight end Dennis Pitta stood at the podium and finally got a brief moment to soak it all in. For the first 13 weeks of the season, Pitta had been helpless to watch the highs and lows while he was sidelined with a fractured and dislocated hip. At times, he wasn't sure if and when he would be back to help this teammates for their playoff push. But there Pitta was late Sunday afternoon, taking stock of his emotions moments after a thrilling 29-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in which he delivered for a Ravens team that had desperately been missing his route-running and reliable hands in critical situations.

One year, that's all he spent in Baltimore. But looking back, Roy Jefferson wouldn't trade that time with the Colts for anything in his football career. A first-team All-Pro wide receiver in Pittsburgh, Jefferson went from the Steelers, who'd won one game in 1969, to the Colts, whom he helped win Super Bowl V. "In 12 years in the NFL, that season was my favorite," he said. "Going from last place to being world champs? My God, there's no comparison. " Jefferson earned that Super Bowl ring.

After three games, Ravens tight end Ed Dickson has more dropped passes than catches. He got booed in the home opener and his playing time in the pass offense might be decreasing. But instead of sulking and making excuses Dickson just keeps working and working. He believes that his time will come eventually. "Things may have gotten off to a rocky start but it is a long season," Dickson said. "As a team, it is working the way we want it to go. We want to keep getting better and I want to get better.

Each week, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will fire a few questions at a random Ravens rookie. This week it was fourth-round pick Kyle Juszczyk, a fullback out of Harvard who has only played on special teams. MV: What was it like playing your first NFL game? I'm sure it's a little different. You probably feel like you're back to being a freshman again and having to earn your stripes on special teams. KJ: It was awesome just to get out there to experience the energy and the enthusiasm of everybody.

It's no surprise that Terps football coach Randy Edsall sleeps in his office during training camp. Actually, he sleeps in a private area of the locker room. He's been a coach for more than 30 years and this is standard training camp practice. “It's all I know,” he said. Edsall lives about a 30-minute drive from campus, so he said bunking in College Park is a time-saver and helps build morale. We wrote previously on how a couple of the assistant coaches were sleeping in the dorms.

The Ravens arrived at the Under Armour Performance Center on Saturday morning with the expectation that they would have to pull on their pads for another afternoon practice in the sun. But midway through a team meeting before the scheduled practice, coach John Harbaugh showed the players a couple of videos of comedian Tracy Morgan to lighten the mood. As the players watched the clips on the large projection screen in the team auditorium, the former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star suddenly walked into the room.

After the Atlanta Falcons pummeled the Ravens' defensive front last week with 170 rushing yards on 40 carries, coordinator Dean Pees was not pleased. Against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night, he expects the unit to be better. And it will be. The defensive line is a work in progress, but this could be the best group in team history. The front four of the record-setting team that won the Super Bowl in 2001 had more talent, but this group has more of everything else. The current Ravens have their own share of talent, and they possess more speed, size, depth, flexibility and versatility than the championship group.

There was no live hitting in the Ravens' training camp practice at Stevenson University Sunday -- or at least there wasn't supposed to be -- but cornerback Lardarius Webb didn't feel like he had another option. Toward the end of the practice, he got such a good break on a Joe Flacco pass that he was powerless to avoid slamming into rookie wide receiver Aaron Mellette . Webb made sure that Mellette was OK before engaging in a little trash talk with wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who was on the sideline.
