Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes 2009-02-27
--It is believed that the Ravens want to pay free agent Jason Brown as a center while the versatile offensive lineman is seeking to be paid like a guard.


The difference in positions could be $2 million per season, which might push Brown to look elsewhere.

"We believe Jason Brown is a great offensive lineman," said Harold Lewis, Brown's agent. "Whether he plays center for the Ravens or guard for another team in the NFL, he's an offensive lineman and he's going to be paid as an offensive lineman. I don't think he has to be categorized.

"When you have that versatility, you should get rewarded for it, and not which is the lower of the two."

--After cutting cornerback Chris McAlister, the Ravens have only two players left from the Ravens' 2000 championship team (linebacker Ray Lewis and kicker Matt Stover are the others). Both Lewis and Stover are scheduled to be free agents at the end of February.

--The Ravens are looking to sign some restricted free agents to long-term deals. Newsome acknowledged punter Sam Koch is a candidate for a new contract.

--The Ravens' 2009 home opponents are: the three AFC North teams (Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland), Chicago, Detroit, Denver, Kansas City and Indianapolis. Their road opponents are: the three AFC North teams (Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland), Green Bay, Minnesota, San Diego, Oakland and New England.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "What you all do not get the opportunity to see like I do on a daily basis is how he interacts with the young players. He's a great mentor not only to the other young linebackers, but some of the young offensive players. ... So he has value that goes beyond his production on the football field." -- General manager Ozzie Newsome on the importance of Ray Lewis.
