Contract talks between the Baltimore Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco have continued and have been amicable, but the sides are not close to a deal and it's unlikely they bridge the gap quickly. Drew Brees, who is poised to set the market, still isn't signed, and the Ravens are very much in a cap crunch. There isn't a sense of immediacy that a deal must get done before the season starts, and at this point it's not expected that will change, sources said Monday, both sides very much want to work out a long-term deal, but the timing has to be right. Flacco is participating in offseason work and has no plans to hold out, sources said, so playing out his final season under contract is the mostly likely outcome for 2012. Flacco stands to make $6.76 million next season in base salary along with a $2.1 million roster bonus. Source: NFL Network

I've never seen a fighter like Jon "Bones" Jones. He's a classically trained wrestling champion. He throws elbows with the deceptive ease of a jab. His kicks are reminiscent of the great old karate fighter, Bill "Superfoot" Wallace. The difference is, Superfoot went 5-10, 166 pounds. Jones is nimble and spidery at 6-4, 205.
But the real difference, that...
The Baltimore Ravens follow a difficult 2011 ending to a very difficult 2012 start. There has been much talk in the offseason about the disappointing finish that happened in the AFC Title game which dreams were shattered in a matter of seconds when a Billy Cundiff field goal sailed wide left. The clock is ticking on an aging defense that is hoping for one more shot at a Super Bowl...
