Ravens | Team Notes

Thu, 15 Mar 2001 00:07:17 -0800

The Baltimore Sun reports the Baltimore Ravens have now turned their attention to re-signing LB Jamie Sharper. Both sides said there has been some progress in negotiations, but coach Brian Billick said no agreement is imminent. Sharper's agent, Tony Agnone, has talked with the Seattle Seahawks and Miami Dolphins where is has visited too. Sharper has received a reportedly "attractive" offer from the Seahawks, but they would expect him to shift to the inside and he's always been an outside LB. The Dolphins don't appear to have the cap room to make a serious run at Sharper. Billick said again the team wants to re-sign WR Billy Davis, DL Keith Washington and DB Robert Bailey, but the cap space is not there right now. The team said they have no visit planned with free agent LB Levon Kirkland.

Ravens | Up Next For Phillips

Thu, 08 Jul 1999 07:25:00 -0700

The Baltimore Sun reports that the next meeting for RB Lawrence Phillips will be with Ravens head coach Brian Billick later today in Atlanta. If the meeting goes well Phillips is then expected to be brought to Baltimore next week to meet with senior team officials. "If Brian feels we should pursue this further, then we'll have Lawrence in for a meeting with several members of the front office soon," VP Ozzie Newsome said. "But again, we're just in the initial phase." The article speculates that even the mild interest in Phillips indicates that the team may not be sold on Priest Holmes as the primary RB although Billick says no. "This is very similar to what we're doing at the wide receiver position," Billick said. "We know the situation, but we brought in players like Webster Slaughter, Qadry Ismail and Billy Davis. It doesn't mean we're out to necessarily replace a player or saying we're devoid at that position. But the name of the game in this league is to get better." The team would reportedly look to give Phillips a contract for the veteran's minimum ($400,000) loaded with incentives.
