Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes
--The Ravens have officially placed offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden and quarterback Steve McNair on the reserve-retired list.


By making the transaction after June 1, the Ravens were able to spread out the salary-cap hits over two seasons (2008 and 2009). The retirement of Ogden and McNair should free up about $6.5 million in cap space for this season.

The Ravens are expected to use that on signing their draft picks as well as possible contract extensions for linebacker Terrell Suggs and center Jason Brown.

--Coach John Harbaugh wants the Ravens to be a blue-collar team.

If the players didn't know that before, they certainly do now.

Harbaugh placed a button-down, blue-collar shirt in each locker. Each shirt has the player's first name written in red cursive script over the left pocket.

This message even extends to the coaches, who also received the new shirts.

--Harbaugh said the team might keep having its rookie camp after organized team activities and minicamps.

"They're so much further along than if we would've had this camp in the beginning before they had been through the offense twice," Harbaugh said. "For a lot of these guys, it's their third time through the offense, and it showed up today in their ability to operate the offense and run the routes and make the adjustments."

--Oniel Cousins, a third-round pick out of UTEP, missed two practices in rookie minicamp because of migraines. It was only last minicamp when another offensive tackle, Jared Gaither, missed time for the same reason.

Said Harbaugh: We've got migraines going around, I guess, on the offensive line."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I know I gave everything I had in 12 years. I left it out there every Sunday on the field for this town, myself and this organization. I can look back and say I have no regrets. I'm at peace with that." -- Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden in announcing his retirement.
