    Baltimore Ravens fans gave running back Ray Rice a standing ovation as he jogged onto the field during training camp practice on Monday, according to the team's website. Rice acknowledged the cheering fans by pointing to the crowd. Rice was seen on video in February dragging his then-fiancée out of an Atlantic City casino elevator. He was charged with third-degree aggravated assault after Janay Palmer, whom he later married, was left unconscious following the incident. Rice agreed to enter into a diversion program to avoid a jail sentence. More: Lenient penalty for Ray Rice troubling proof of where NFL's priorities...
  • Ravens' Ray Rice apologizes for actions in March

    His voice cracking with emotion, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice acknowledged Friday that he “failed miserably” and apologized for the actions that led to his arrest on assault charges. Rice was arrested following a Feb. 15 altercation in Atlantic City, in which he allegedly struck fiancee Janay Palmer. The couple married in late February, and both went to the stage at the team training complex for their first public comment since the arrest. “I failed miserably, but I wouldn’t call myself a failure because I’m working my way back up,” Rice said. Rice was accepted Tues­day into a diversion...

    the NFL has performed 'an aggressive review' of the play in question, where Tomiln appeared to intentionally get in the path of Baltimore kick returner Jacoby Jones on a could-be touchdown, forcing Jones to alter his route and run towards a Pittsburgh defender. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was caught by television cameras Thursday night with a big smile on his face after his positioning on a third-quarter kick return from Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones — in which Tomlin had part of his right foot on the field as he watched the return on the video board with his back to...

    According to TMZ, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones was hurt early Monday morning when a stripper named Sweet Pea smashed a giant champagne bottle over his head during a brawl on a party bus. I know, I know, it sounds outrageous. But according to the gossip site, the story is legit — and becomes more believable when you consider the company Jones was with.

    Retired six-time Pro Bowl center and former Viking Matt Birk skipped the Baltimore Ravens' visit to the White House on Wednesday for political reasons. Specifically, the St. Paul native took issue with President Barack Obama's support of Planned Parenthood. Birk is a staunch Catholic father of six children who's against abortion and has taken a strong pro-life stance. Birk has also spoken out in the past in favor of traditional marriage prior to same-sex marriage becoming legal last year in Maryland. "I wasn't there," Birk said in an interview on KFAN-FM.

In a June 6 interview with Minneapolis-St. Paul’s KFAN Sports-Radio FM-100.3, Birk said he had “great respect for the office of the presidency,” but could not endorse Obama’s statement “in any way.” The president made the invocation during an April 26 speech at the Planned Parenthood Conference in Washington, D.C. “Planned Parenthood performs about 330,000 abortions a year,” Birk said. “I am Catholic, I am active in the...

Nearly 13 years have passed since someone killed Priscilla Lollar’s oldest child, and in that time, she says, she has never visited his grave. She has thought about what that moment would be like, and deep down she knows it is something she needs to do. But she’s afraid that pain would soon follow, and so instead, Priscilla has chosen for years to feel nothing. Early on Jan. 31, 2000, Richard Lollar and a childhood friend, Jacinth Baker, were stabbed to death in Atlanta. This...

    Planned Parenthood almost seemed like a permanent fixture in the Minnesota community where Baltimore Raven Matt Birk grew up. Located just two miles from his home in St. Paul, the abortion clinic operated for three straight decades. Then, the godfather of one of Birk’s five children opened a pro-life pregnancy resource center across the street from the clinic. People of faith began praying regularly for women and their unborn children – participating in sidewalk counseling and providing help for women to bring their children to term. Adrianna, Birk’s wife, volunteered at the center. Thanks to their efforts, the abortion clinic...

Miraculously, despite “significant” neck pain, he’s “neurogically intact” with movement in all his limbs. No diagnosis yet but presumably it’s whiplash and/or a concussion. So brutal was this that, after watching the replay, I was hoping he was “merely” paralyzed and not actually dead on the field. Click the image to watch.

Basically, everything the Pittsburgh Steelers once shared with the Cleveland Browns. Stealing the latter franchise in the mid-1990s wasn't enough for the city of Baltimore. Crabtown had to net Cleveland's biggest rival as well. The Ravens have become Public Enemy No. 1 in Pittsburgh while the Browns aren't even on the most wanted list. Steelers players don't deny it, either. "Each and every year we play Baltimore, it's one of those...

But if both teams happen to win, well, then it is all Eagles. Rendell told the New York Times that he has to be loyal. “If it costs me some political points, that’s life.” Rendell is a rabid Eagles fan, and is pretty sure that rabid Steelers fans would understand his Eagle loyalty. “The casual fans might be upset, but I don’t care,” he said.
