Former Morgan State standout and 10-year NFL veteran tight end Visanthe Shiancoe watched Friday's practice with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. Though the Ravens currently have five tight ends on their roster, including veterans Dennis Pitta, Ed Dickson and Billy Bajema, there is a chance that they sign Shiancoe and give him an opportunity to compete for the third tight end spot. Shiancoe, a 33-year-old who tried out with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week, played four games with the New England Patriots last season but didn't catch a pass.

The Baltimore sports scene is blessed with a bunch of talented bloggers who bring their unique perspective to the conversation. Each week, I hope to chat with one of them in a regular feature called Blogger on Blogger. This week, I exchanged emails with Kris Jones, who blogs about the Ravens for Russell Street Report . MV: Two weeks into training camp, how would you handicap the competition at wide receiver? KJ: Torrey Smith has taken major strides to become a top-tier receiver in this league.

Visanthe Shiancoe has just two-and-a-half training camp practices with the Ravens under the belt, but early indications are that the veteran tight end could play a role similar to the one that Ed Dickson played last year. Shiancoe, a former Morgan State standout, is trying to learn the Ravens' offense as quickly as possible and develop a rapport with quarterback Joe Flacco, who stayed on the field after being dismissed Monday to chat and toss extra passes to his new tight end. Shiancoe has gotten snaps with the first-team offense, particularly when they used two-tight-end sets with Dickson.

A magnetic resonance imaging test confirmed Monday that Ravens tight end Ed Dickson has a small hamstring tear, an injury that isn't believed to be too serious but is magnified with Dennis Pitta already out for the season. Dickson, who missed three games and battled injuries all last season, sustained the hamstring tear during practice at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Sunday. “There's a little tear in there,” coach John Harbaugh said. “We're going to hold him back for a week or so and we'll see where we're at. It's going to be a matter of time, but it's not going to be a long time.” Harbaugh said that he expects Dickson, who caught 21 passes for 225 yards in 13 games last season, to be ready for the Ravens' Sept.

Visanthe Shiancoe tries to downplay the attention he continues to attract. He knows an increasing number of NFL scouts are studying him. He senses there is a good chance he will be drafted next spring. He dreams of being paid handsomely to play a game for which he was built. For now, though, the senior tight end from Morgan State (his name is pronounced Va-shan-tey She-an-co) is trying to stick to the present, hoping to help a victory-starved program enjoy success, wanting to represent a winner for a change.

Ravens fans remain fixated on whether Derrick Mason is coming back. On a different level, the same question could be asked of Todd Heap. As the veterans reported to Ravens training camp Wednesday, the two-time Pro Bowl tight end is looking to become a key component in Cam Cameron's offense, reversing a series of disappointments. It started with training camp last season, when Heap missed most of the preseason with a calf injury. It continued throughout the regular season when a coaching decision turned the franchise's all-time leading receiver into more of a blocker.

Minnesota tight end Visanthe Shiancoe wears Vikings purple, but his heart is still close to Morgan State's orange and blue. "I take a lot of pride when it comes to representing Morgan State in the NFL," said Shiancoe, whose Vikings will face the Ravens on Sunday. "Whenever someone asks me, 'What school did you go to?' I tell them, 'Morgan State.' My experience at Morgan State was extremely good when it comes to academics and football and friendships and relationships." One of the best players produced by the Bears program, Shiancoe, 29, is beginning to mark out his own path in the NFL. Shiancoe, 6 feet 4 and 250 pounds, has caught 13 passes for 116 yards and a team-leading three touchdowns this season.

It's a good thing the Ravens aren't looking for a pass-catching tight end in free agency because pickings are slim. Jermichael Finley, the top free agent tight end in this year's class, won't hit the market as the Green Bay Packers re-signed him to a two-year deal last month. That leaves the Washington Redskins' Fred Davis as the top free agent at the position, but there is a chance the Redskins could use their franchise tag to keep Davis. Finley and Davis are the only two consistent receiving threats in this class, but there are a few intriguing players who have had varying degrees of success as receiving tight ends.

Cornerback Lardarius Webb continues to make great strides in his return from knee surgery but as expected, he will not play tonight in the Ravens' preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. Webb, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last October, headlines a list of seven Ravens that were pronounced out by the team a little over an hour before kickoff. None of the scratches were particularly surprising. Right guard Marshal Yanda (rotator cuff)
