Two former Ravens appear to have found new gigs within the last 24 hours.
Linebacker Antwan Barnes, who was released by the Eagles last weekend, has signed with the Chargers. The Barnes signing is a corresponding roster move to San Diego putting linebacker Shawne Merriman on Injured Reserve.
The Ravens had traded Barnes to the Eagles before the start of the regular season.
In addition, and I'm sure you'll all love this piece of news, cornerback Frank Walker appears set to sign with the Vikings.
Minnesota lost Cedric Griffin for the year and rookie Chris Cook is out for the time being, so Walker will be brought in to add depth to the Vikings' cornerback ranks.
Go ahead, let's hear it.
A couple other quick notes before I pop out to watch practice:
Pro Football Hall of Fame coach John Madden has selected the Ravens as the Week 5 winner of the Madden Most Valuable Protectors of the Week.
Each week, Madden recognizes one NFL offensive line as the top performing unit. Coming off their performance against the Broncos when the Ravens picked up 17 rushing first downs, allowed just one sack, and scored touchdowns on three drives of 67 or more yards, the Ravens were Madden's selection.
"I really liked what I have seen from the Baltimore offensive line over the last few weeks," Madden said. "Last week the Ravens line was extremely efficient in their pass protection in the win against Pittsburgh and this week their run blocking was exceptional allowing their running backs to pick up quality yards."
Also, Kimberly Feather, the Pasadena woman who won 20 years worth of season tickets to Ravens games, will appear tomorrow at 9 p.m. on TLC's show "How the Lottery Changed My Life".
Feather got a tour of Ravens headquarters a few months ago, and the show will feature part of her day at The Castle.
