Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes 2008-07-12
--With the conclusion of the rookie minicamp at the end of June, the Ravens won't return to practice until July 22 for quarterbacks, rookies and injured veterans and July 25 for the remaining veterans.


But that doesn't mean that the players are allowed to slide on their responsibility of staying in shape and absorbing the playbooks, according to coach John Harbaugh.

"Guys have got to work on their own," he said. "There are skill-specific things at every position. Offensive linemen take pass sets and punch and also work on footwork. Defensive backs, all the footwork and technique. Quarterbacks or receivers can throw or catch, and I think our guys are planning on getting together and throwing and catching -- one set on the West Coast and one set here on the East Coast. Those are the little things that guys do to make themselves better."

--The Ravens released their training camp schedule with two practices -- one at 8:45 a.m. and the other at 3:30 p.m. -- on Tuesday, July 22 to open the almost four-week camp. Rookies, quarterbacks and injured veterans will report on Monday, July 21, while the remaining veterans will report on Wednesday, July 23. The first full-squad practices will take place on Friday, July 25 at 8:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.

The team will practice twice a day on 20 of the 26 days slated for training camp, including a string of 12 consecutive two-a-days July 25 through Aug. 5. Camp officially ends with a walk-through closed to the public on Aug. 15, which is prior to the Ravens' first home game of the preseason against the Minnesota Vikings on Aug. 16.

--Free-agent offensive tackle Barry Sims decided to sign with the San Francisco 49ers. A nine-year starter for the Oakland Raiders, Sims had worked out recently for the Ravens, St. Louis Rams and New England Patriots.

Sims chose the 49ers because they offered him the best chance to compete for a starting job. The Ravens are looking to start Jared Gaither at left tackle this season following the recent retirement of Jonathan Ogden.

--A Ravens spokesman confirmed that cornerback Derrick Martin told team officials he was detained at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport over the weekend on charges of possessing marijuana.

A citation will be mailed to Martin, who will have the option to appear in court July 15 or simply pay the $100 fine. A spokesman for the Cleveland Police Department said the police detained a man named Derrick Martin and will cite him for alleged drug possession -- what the spokesman described as a "minor misdemeanor" with a maximum fine of $100.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Everyone knows quarterback is a position where it takes a while to really start playing well. But you want to go out there and prove you can do it as quick as possible." -- First-round quarterback Joe Flacco on his adjustment to the NFL.
