With Michael Oher back at left tackle because of a large absence at camp, maybe The Blind Side will be re-released. Lets note a few things:
As John Eisenberg pointed out, the Ravens gave Bryant McKinnie a 500,000 roster bonus in the off-season. Now, as hes absent from camp for reasons no one is really explaining, the Ravens may have whittled that figure down to at least 470,000. Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported the Ravens have fined the offensive tackle 30,000 for not reporting to camp Wednesday. That fine could keep accumulating.
Would you talk trash to Ray Lewis? Joe Flacco will.
As reported by the Ravens website, during Fridays 11-on-11, two-minute drill, Lewis attempted to knock down one of Flaccos passes to tight end Ed Dickson, but couldnt get to it and fell down. As Dickson took off downfield, Flacco shouted at Lewis: "Thats a missed tackle, Ray.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, not wanting his players putting stuff out on the street that he wants to keep in house, has banned them from using Twitter, CBSSports.com reported.
"I think people have to have the maturity and the wherewithal to be able to handle it," Lewis said. "Thus far, what I have experienced since April is we don't have the maturity to handle it. I don't see how tweeting is going to help us win a football game. So it's part of being selfless right now. It's not best for our football team to be involved in that. It's best we just take care of ourselves and not announce what we are doing or not doing and commenting on what's going on in other spots. Let's just be football players."
