If Byron Leftwich is willing to come here as a No. 3 quarterback and take the appropriate salary, then it's a great move for the Ravens and Leftwich. There aren't many teams in the NFL that can pull a No. 3 quarterback off the bench with his skill level and experience. Plus, if he doesn't play much this season, it might help him. For one, it allows his battered body to heal. Two, he can learn the game from Steve McNair. Like Kyle Boller, Leftwich was rushed into the starting lineup and had to get on-the-job training. In a league in which it is hard to find a team with one decent quarterback, let alone two, the Ravens could have three.

The Ravens made a great move by keeping kicker Rhys Lloyd. He's like a little secret weapon. I don't know how accurate he is, but he has a strong leg. He could pin teams in the hole with his kickoffs, and with the Ravens' great defense, they could win a lot of field-position battles. He kicked that 55-yarder against Atlanta. He might come in handy this year with those long field goals. The Ravens have been known to struggle offensively, but if they get to the other team's 40, and if the conditions are right, they can call on Lloyd. He'd be even more of a weapon in a dome stadium.

Adam Terry looks so much better at left tackle than on the right side. He is so much smoother, and seems more sure of himself. He also ran well when the Ravens asked him to pull. Rookie Marshal Yanda didn't look bad on the right side against the Falcons, but he still has a ways to go. A little more quickness will help.
