Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes 2009-05-01
--Florida State's Graham Gano has agreed to sign with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent and will compete to become the team's kicker.


Gano, who won the Lou Groza Award for the nation's top placekicker, will battle Steve Hauschka for the job held by Matt Stover for the past 13 seasons.

Originally born in Scotland, Gano converted 24 of 26 field goals last season, missing from 52 and 50 yards. He showed a strong leg with 10 field goals beyond 40 yards.

--The most high-profile undrafted addition could be Georgia outside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.

Considered a mid-round prospect, Ellerbe is an explosive tackler who has some character issues. He was suspended for the first three games in 2006 after arrest in alcohol-related traffic incident.

--The other undrafted rookies expected to sign with the Ravens are: Duke wide receiver Eron Riley; Maryland wide receiver Isaiah Williams; quarterback Drew Willey (Buffalo); offensive lineman Greg Ryan (Western Kentucky); fullback Jason Cook (Mississippi); defensive tackle Will Johnson (Michigan); and defensive end Willie VanDeSteeg (Minnesota).

--Offensive tackle Jared Gaither hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent in an attempt to get a new long-term deal with the team. Gaither, who replaced Jonathan Ogden at left tackle last season, will be a restricted free agent in 2010.

--The Ravens will hold their mandatory minicamp on May 8.

--Rookies, quarterbacks and selected veterans will report to Ravens training camp July 27, the team announced. The rest of the team will arrive at McDaniel College on July 29.

The Ravens have scheduled 25 days of practice before moving back to team headquarters in Owings Mills. This marks the 14th year that the Ravens have held training camp in Westminster.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I think we'll look back at these six players two years from now and say, 'You know what, that draft really helped our football team and we were a strong football team coming into this draft.'" -- General manager Ozzie Newsome in assessing his six picks in the 2009 draft.
