Travis Taylor showed no fear. With all eyes fixed upon him, it was crunch time for Taylor when his number was surprisingly called by offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh. But instead of having to make a tough, third-down slant over the middle, Taylor had to run a go route to the front of the team meeting room. Cavanaugh picked the wide receiver to deliver the red-zone game plan before a recent preseason game, instructing every player of his assignment. Graduation day has certainly arrived for the players responsible for the Ravens' passing game.

Rating the QBs How the Ravens' quarterbacks stacked up in yesterday morning's team drills: 1. Chris Redman Engineered a 35-yard drive in a hurry-up drill against the first-team defense, which put the offense in range for a 42-yard field goal. Despite constant pressure, he threw a 13-yard pass to Randy Hymes and a 10-yarder to Ron Johnson. In another drill, he found Travis Taylor for an 18-yard gain. 2. Kyle Boller Remained relatively quiet with fewer reps. In what has become a daily occurrence, he connected on a deep pass, a 40-yard throw down the sideline to Hymes.

Negotiations with first-round draft pick Travis Taylor appeared on the verge of collapse yesterday after a nine-hour bargaining session by the Ravens failed to break the impasse. Taylor had arrived at the team's Western Maryland College training camp on Sunday to speak with coach Brian Billick in an attempt to bring an end to his now-eight-day holdout. But after negotiations stretched from 5 p.m. Sunday to 2 a.m. yesterday without a breakthrough, the 21-year-old wide receiver caught a flight back to Fort Lauderdale, his agent said last mght.

The Ravens threw their best - and apparently final - offer at unsigned draft choice Travis Taylor yesterday, then prepared to wait out a contract dispute that has turned ominous. Calling Taylor to accountability, Ravens coach Brian Billick said the team has delivered its best offer to the 10th pick in the draft. "We have put our best foot forward with regard to Travis Taylor," Billick said. "This afternoon, [Ravens chief negotiator] Pat Moriarty sat with Travis Taylor's representation and made it very clear what our position was, and this was our best effort."

The rumor that Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor might end up here through a trade might have been one of the most ridiculous Ravens trade rumors in recent memory and is a good example of why NFL football is nothing like fantasy football. Taylor can still play. And he would fit in just fine with the Ravens. But he also makes $7.5 million a year and is 33 years old. Giving away a high draft pick for a veteran on the downside of his career is something the Redskins might do, but not the Ravens.

Elevated by 40-yard speed, raw passing game numbers and sometimes reputation, the position of wide receiver is a favorite target in the first round of the NFL's college draft. But recent history has shown it's more quagmire than haven at the top of the draft, more risk than reward. Eight of the past 13 wide receivers taken in the top 10 picks either have been outright busts, have run afoul of the league's substance-abuse policy, or simply have under-performed when they had the chance.

The final piece of the Ravens' offensive puzzle didn't arrive until 94 days before the regular season. In terms of the evolution of their passing game, the wait for Steve McNair really wasn't that long. The Ravens had to go through 13 starting receivers - from Justin Armour to Travis Taylor - before landing Derrick Mason and Mark Clayton last season. They had to go through 10 starting quarterbacks - from Scott Mitchell to Kyle Boller - before trading for McNair in mid-June. Now, after seven painstaking years of building a legitimate passing attack, the hope for the Ravens is that they can finally take flight and go from a disappointing 6-10 season to the rare air of the playoffs.

Watching the heavy snow fall yesterday, Gary Baxter said it's unlikely he will be able to leave his Baltimore home anytime soon, much less the Ravens. Considered the top priority of the Ravens' 12 pending unrestricted free agents, Baxter remains optimistic about staying with the team and wouldn't rule out striking a deal before hitting the market tomorrow. According to a league source, the three-year starting cornerback and the Ravens are about $4 million apart on a signing bonus. "I still think a deal will still get done with the Ravens," said Baxter, who declined to talk about specific contract numbers.

George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up the Browns: Strength of offense Stability at quarterback. They went back and forth with Kelly Holcomb and Tim Couch last year. Jeff Garcia has won a lot of games and has completed a lot of passes. He can make plays when plays break down. His mobility and ability to see the field are his biggest strengths. Strength of defense Front line. There's talent there with a lot of high draft picks, but it hasn't jelled yet. Defensive tackle Gerard Warren has rededicated himself and wants to prove that he is worthy of where he was picked.

While the Ravens were thankful no new injuries came out of the team's 27-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Monday night, a few notable players that were held out of that game do not look any closer to returning. Tight end Todd Heap (ankle), receiver Travis Taylor (groin) and center Mike Flynn (collarbone) are all highly unlikely to play Sunday night against the Washington Redskins. Whether cornerback Deion Sanders (hamstring), who was declared out two hours before the Chiefs game even though he practiced last week, will be back to face his old team remains questionable.

Ravens nose guard Kelly Gregg and nickel back Deion Sanders will likely return to practice this week, meaning both could play Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs. Both players missed Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, and neither practiced last week. Gregg said his knee is feeling better, and he expects to be on the practice field Thursday. Sanders hurt his hamstring last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gregg feels he needs to practice in order to play. "Going into the Cleveland game, I didn't practice that much, and I went out there and tried to play, and it just wasn't having it," he said.
