Much like general manager Ozzie Newsome, coach John Harbaugh did not say anything to discourage any possibility of making a deal before to Tuesday's league-wide 4 p.m. trade deadline.

Asked if he would be surprised if the Ravens pulled the trigger on a trade, Harbaugh said, "I wouldn't be surprised. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't make a deal. We're going to do everything we can to make our team better any way that we can. The trade deadline's coming up and if something presents itself, then we're going to do it if we think it makes our team better."

The next question posed to Harbaugh entailed the report from Fox Sports' Jay Glazer that the club had inquired about Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens, who has a contentious history with the Ravens.

Because both Harbaugh and Owens were employed by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004 and 2005, Harbaugh was asked to comment about his perspective on Owens. After a brief moment of debating whether he should speak about a player on another team, Harbaugh had this to say:

"All I can say about T.O. is this – I'm going to jump out a limb here – I've got a lot of respect for T.O., OK? Always have," Harbaugh said. "He's a football player, he practices hard, I think he's got a really good heart, always have. We have a good relationship. Now is anything happening there? Not that I know of. And I think I would know if something was happening. But he plays for another team. We have a ton of respect for him, and I've always liked him and I want to be positive about him."
