Look Who's Here
Steve Spurrier was just another face in the crowd at the Ravens' training camp Tuesday morning. The ol' ball coach -- wearing a striped polo shirt and his trademark visor (minus the Washington Redskins logo) -- has kept a low profile since resigning as Redskins coach last December and watched the morning practice from a seat in the stands at McDaniel College.
"I think he just came out here to enjoy the day," said Ravens offensive assistant Jedd Fisch, who invited Spurrier. "He's a football coach, he likes football and that's what it comes down to. He got to see Travis Taylor and Fred Weary, and he loves that stuff, he really does."
Spurrier has several ties to the Ravens: Fisch spent two seasons as a graduate assistant with Spurrier at the University of Florida, Taylor and Weary played for the Gators, and Dick Nolan, father of defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, was once Spurrier's coach.
After practice, Spurrier chatted with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and several players. He ate lunch with some of the coaching staff, met with Coach Brian Billick and General Manager Ozzie Newsome, and then returned to his home in Virginia.
"We've got way too many head coaches around here, in my mind," Billick joked. "It's great to have Steve out here. He's going to give us a critique on the morning, so it's good to see him out here."
QB Kordell Stewart (sore shoulder) dressed for practice but did not participate. T Orlando Brown was absent for personal reasons. CB Fred Weary (quadriceps, knee), WR-PR Derek Abney (shoulder), DT Matt Zielinski (knee), RB B.J. Sams (wrist), LB Peter Boulware (knee), QB Anthony Wright (shoulder) and TE Trent Smith (leg) did not practice. T Casey Rabach (knee) sat out the morning session but took part in some afternoon drills.
