The Washington Redskins have invited Towson pass rusher Ryan Delaire to their local prospect day Wednesday, according to league sources.
The defensive end-outside linebacker is also attending the Ravens' local prospect day Tuesday at team headquarters.
Sources said Delaire checked out fine during a medical recheck this weekend in Indianapolis for a groin injury suffered during the NFL scouting combine while running the 40-yard dash in 4.97 seconds and arthroscopic knee surgery in December.
Delaire drew strong reviews for his performance at his campus Pro Day workout, where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 to 4.8 seconds with a 33 1/2 inch vertical leap at Johnny Unitas Stadium with Ravens coach John Harbaugh in attendance.
Delaire has also drawn interest from the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints. Delaire has been projected as a middle- to later-round draft prospect.
"To my way of thinking, Delaire is very much a draftable guy," an...Read more
When tight end Daniel Wilcox played for the Ravens, he was one of the most approachable players in the locker room and was regularly in demand for interviews.
Now, Wilcox is on the other side of the microphone.
Wilcox has been hired as the color commentator for Appalachian State football game broadcasts.
A former Appalachian State standout, Wilcox, 38, will start calling games this fall.
“We’re thrilled to announce that Daniel will join our Appalachian IMG Sports Network family next season,” Appalachian State associate athletics director for broadcast operations David Jackson said in a statement. “His radio experience, football expertise, passion for Appalachian State and genuine care for coaches and student-athletes makes him a natural fit for the role. We think that Mountaineer fans around the world will enjoy Daniel’s analysis."
Wilcox played for the Ravens for five seasons through the 2008 season, catching 76 passes for 595 yards and eight touchdowns.

South Florida cornerback and kick returner Chris Dunkley told The Baltimore Sun that he will visit the Ravens next week along with the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions.
Dunkley is a converted wide receiver and Florida transfer who's also had a private workout for the Miami Dolphins and Patriots, and visited the San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons.
"It's a childhood dream," Dunkley said in a telephone interview. "It's crazy how it's finally getting closer and closer. My destiny is starting to come true."
Dunkley played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl all-star game and participated in an NFL regional combine.
Dunkley started 10 games at cornerback last season. At cornerback, Dunkley had 26 tackles, one sack, 1.5 tackles for losses and led the team with five pass breakups. He had one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
"I'm a real good corner," Dunkley said. "Some teams are still shocked that I switched to corner my last year in college. I have better hips than a lot...Read more
Editor's note: As Penn State free safety and cornerback Adrian Amos gets ready for the NFL draft, the former Calvert Hall standout will be sharing details about his preparations with Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson. The 6-foot, 218-pound All-Big Ten Conference honorable mention selection has been projected to be taken anywhere from the third round to the fifth round by draft analysts. Amos played in the Senior Bowl and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. Here's his 11th entry in the series:
I worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles at Calvert Hall for their head coach, Chip Kelly. It was a great opportunity to show what I can do. I got to show them how I can move and react to the football. I just did a visit there last week.
This was a follow-up workout. It was just another opportunity. I don't look too much further into it than that.
I'm a football fan, so I've been watching coach Kelly since he was at Oregon and with the Eagles. He's a great coach....Read more
Ravens tight end Phillip Supernaw signed his $510,000 exclusive-rights free agent tender Friday.
Supernaw joined the Ravens last offseason following a previous stint with the Houston Texans.
After being off and on the Ravens' practice squad and a two-game stint with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he caught one pass for three yards, Supernaw played six games on the Ravens' active roster. He caught two passes for 27 yards.
Supernaw is the second tight end on the Ravens' depth chart behind starter Crockett Gilllmore with Owen Daniels having signed with the Denver Broncos and Dennis Pitta's future uncertain after twice dislocating and fracturing his right hip. Supernaw could be in line for an expanded role, a potential opportunity that hinges on how he performs as well as what the team does during the NFL draft and with free agents between now and the start of the regular season.
Supernaw first signed with the Texans in 2012 after going undrafted out of Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas,...Read more
Penn State safety Adrian Amos has been invited to the Ravens' local prospect day, according to sources.
The workout is Tuesday at the Ravens' training complex.
The Calvert Hall graduate had a private workout Thursday for Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly and vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz at his high school.
Amos has also visited the Eagles.
He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds at the Nittany Lions' pro day workout. That was an improvement on his 4.56 time at the NFL scouting combine.
The 6-foot, 218-pound Amos also bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times after not doing that test at the combine.
He is projected to be picked somewhere between the third and fifth rounds by draft analysts.
