Former Ravens reserve running back Damien Berry is in a Florida jail and is facing outstanding warrants in Maryland on charges of writing a worthless check for over $100,000 and unauthorized removal of property, according to Florida and Maryland court records.
The unauthorized removal of property involves Berry taking a car, according to a jail official.
Berry remains in the Lee County Jail in Ft. Myers, Fla., on the warrants and hasn't signed a letter of extradition, jail officials told The Baltimore Sun. Berry will eventually be extradited, though, according to a jail official.
Berry was arrested on the warrant Monday morning. He faces no new charges in Florida. TMZ Sports first reported Berry's arrest.
Berry also has active cases in Maryland for driving on a suspended license and failure to appear, failure to display license on demand and failure to appear and failure to pay child support and failure to appear.
Prior to being released by the Ravens two years ago, Berry was arrested...Read more
The Ravens went shopping for their rookie class at the Senior Bowl all-star game.
Between the NFL draft and signing undrafted free agents, the Ravens acquired six players who were at the Senior Bowl. That tied the Washington Redskins the second-most of any NFL team, according to Senior Bowl media relations official Patrick Woo. The Indianapolis Colts had the most former Senior Bowl players this year, with eight.
The Ravens' rookie Senior Bowl alums in their include four of their nine draft picks: third-round draft pick Carl Davis (Iowa), fourth-round defensive end-outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith (Kentucky), fifth-round offensive guard Robert Myers (Tennessee State) and fifth-round tight end Nick Boyle (Delaware).
The Ravens also agreed to terms with two other Senior Bowl players: undrafted Mississippi State offensive tackle Blaine Clausell and undrafted Louisiana-Monroe punter-kicker Justin Manton.
Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta remarked on the importance of excelling...Read more
The Chicago Bears have signed former Calvert Hall standout Adrian Amos to a four-year, $2.512 million contract that includes a $232,280 signing bonus.
The fifth-round safety from Penn State worked out for the Ravens, Washington Redskins, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly. Amos also visited the Eagles.
The 6-foot, 218-pounder improved his 40-yard dash to 4.39 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. Amos ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds at the NFL scouting combine in February, the seventh-fastest time among safeties.
Amos could wind up lining up at safety or cornerback, in a pinch.
The former All-Big Ten Conference honorable-mention selection also bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times Friday after not doing that test at the combine.
Projected anywhere from the third round to the fifth round by draft analysts, Amos also played cornerback for the Nittany Lions. Amos played in the Senior Bowl all-star game.
At the NFL scouting combine, Amos has a 35.5-inch vertical...Read more
The Ravens have reached a three-year deal with undrafted East Carolina wide receiver Cam Worthy, according to an NFL source.
The deal includes a $2,500 signing bonus.
Worthy was cleared during the Indianapolis medical recheck after fracturing his foot in the Medal of Honor all-star game.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound receiver has run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds in the past, but was unable to work out for NFL teams this spring or at the NFL scouting combine.
Worthy was selected to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. He caught 47 passes for 886 yards and three touchdowns last season.
In two seasons, Worthy had 66 catches for 1,181 yards and five touchdowns. In the Birmingham Bowl against Florida, Worthy caught eight passes for 130 yards and a touchdown.
Worthy played opposite record-setting wide receiver Justin Hardy.
In testing at the school, Worthy had a 43-inch vertical leap, a 10-9 broad jump, a 335-pound bench press, 465-pound squat and a 308-pound power clean.
He caught 19...Read more

Maxx Williams hasn't set foot on an NFL practice field, yet is getting a ton of early praise from analysts and fans.
Some of that is because Williams was believed to be the top tight end in the 2015 draft. Some also comes from the sheer joy that was generated when the Ravens essentially stole the Minnesota tight end from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Williams was effective but not spectacular for the Golden Gophers, catching 36 passes for 569 yards and eight touchdowns last season. But his new team has a darn-good track record when it comes to selecting tight ends high in the draft.
Before this year's draft, the Ravens had selected nine tight ends since 1996, including four in the fourth round or higher. Each of those players, at the least, became solid contributors and a couple became stars.
Todd Heap, selected 31st overall in 2001 out of Arizona State, leads the list. In 10 seasons with the Ravens, Heap made 467 receptions for 5,492 yards (both second-most in franchise history) and scored...Read more
