Cundiff's confidence "as high as it's ever been," even after AFC title miss

About an hour after the Ravens' OTA wrapped up last Wednesday, Billy Cundiff found himself surrounded by a horde of reporters.

Harbaugh, Ravens unconcerned about Rice's absence from OTAs

Ravens announce several signings

One of the nice things about the NFL's new collective bargaining agreement has to be the way the NFL draft salaries are handled. Remember when the first overall pick was paid a boatload of money, leaving the remaining first-rounders to negotiate their salaries based on how much they assumed they were worth?
