Head coach John Harbaugh and team owner Steve Bisciotti each got served pricy fines as well — $50,000 for Harbaugh and $100,000 for Bisciotti.
Per sources, Ravens will lose final two OTAs this week as a result of an undisclosed infraction of league rules. John Harbaugh and Steve Bisciotti also facing potential fines. Not sure of nature of infraction.
Harbaugh and the Ravens blamed the infractions on the habits of young players who just can’t keep from hitting their teammates during passing drills.

Two years of Leinart is enough years of Leinart. Trading for Jason Campbell in 2010 and drafting Christian Ponder in 2011 doesn’t fix the problem for the long-term either. The Packers finally get a band-aid that sticks when they trade for Alex Smith in 2013, but it doesn’t lead to much postseason success.
Turns out Rodgers is also really good. He took the reins from Bledsoe in 2006 and is a Pro Bowler year in and year out in New England.

The Patriots make the Super Bowl three times over the next decade, winning twice.

Early in Terrell Owens’ career with the San Francisco 49ers, we often discussed his game, growth, immaturity, bluntness, friskiness, gimmicks, passion, boldness, shyness, and solitude. He always looked you in the eyes without blinking. Sometimes he knew he was wrong and other times he was certain he was right. In both instances, that stone-cold gaze was perfected — along with complex defenses to protect his heart.
