Ted Ginn Jr. has left the Super Bowl runner-up San Francisco 49ers to play for the Carolina Panthers.

Ravens, Orioles can’t work out conflict; Super Bowl champions begin season on road

The NFL has no choice but to have a rarity occur with its Super Bowl champion.

The Baltimore Ravens, who defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl back in February, will be celebrating their title with a road game to start the 2013 season.

The NFL had sought the help of the Baltimore Orioles and Major League Baseball to move a game from the evening to the daytime, but to no avail.

The Ravens play at M&T Bank Stadium and the Orioles play at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The two stadiums sit next door to each other and they share the same parking lots, so the teams try to avoid playing at the same time due to traffic problems.

The NFL traditionally has its reigning champion open at home and had the Ravens playing at home on Thursday, September 5. But the Orioles already had scheduled to play the Chicago White Sox that evening.

The NFL is looking to set up a celebration in Baltimore to honor the Ravens with a pre-game concert even with the team playing on the road.

Bengals re-sign key member of defense, Manny Lawson


To many fans and members of the media, the Cincinnati Bengals made a mistake letting two defensive players leave through free agency in Frostee Rucker and Jonathan Fanene. But they were part-time players on their dominating defense.

In their place, the team signed some other players through the free agency process who they feel are better.

Cincinnati did keep one of they key defensive members, linebacker Manny Lawson, who played well in the 4-3 alignment and 3-4 the team imposed.

The unrestricted free agent played in every game in 2011 with 16 starts and the Wild Card playoff game at Houston. Last season was his first with Cincinnati.

Lawson ranked fifth on last year’s defensive unit in tackles with 78 and had 1.5 sacks. He was fourth on the team in tackles-for-loss with seven.

Before playing for the Bengals, Lawson spent five years with the San Francisco 49ers.

For his 80 game career, with 71 starts, Lawson’s stats include 16 sacks, eight forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 18 passes defensed.

Outside linebacker Manny Lawson was one of top defensive players for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011, after being signed to a contract just after training camp opened.

He is a free agent who was looking around during the off-season. He checked out the Cleveland Browns.

According to reports from Cincinnati and the internet, Lawson told his teammates that he’ll be coming back to play for Cincinnati this season.

The 27-year-old Lawson, is 6’5, 240-pounds and is very tough on offensive lineman when the Bengals rush him around the edge to get the quarterback.

The N.C. State product was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2006 NFL Draft as their #1 pick, 22nd overall.

In his career, he has 287 tackles, 16 sacks and 2 intereceptions.

Troy Smith signs with Steelers

Former Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith, a 2006 Heisman Trophy winner, has been signed to a reserve/futures contract by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Smith spent three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens from 2007-2009, beating the Steelers as a rookie starter in 2007.

Smith spent 2010 with the San Francisco 49ers.

Smith won the 2006 Heisman Memorial Trophy on December 9, 2006. He beat out sophomore RB Darren McFadden (2nd) from Arkansas and senior QB Brady Quinn (3rd), from Notre Dame.

In winning the 2006 Heisman, Smith took 86.7% of the first place votes, a record that has not been broken. His tally of 2,540 votes was the third largest behind that of the then-2005 Heisman Trophy winner, Reggie Bush of the USC (2,541 votes) and 1968 Heisman winner O. J. Simpson who also played for USC (2,853 votes). His margin of victory (1,662 votes) was also the second largest in the history of the award, eclipsed only by O.J. Simpson who won by 1,750 votes.

Troy Smith joined Les Horvath (1944), Vic Janowicz (1950), Howard “Hopalong” Cassady (1955), Archie Griffin (1974 and 1975) and Eddie George (1995) as Ohio State Heisman winners.

Smith was signed by the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League on September 2, 2011. An injury to fellow Heisman Trophy-winner Eric Crouch in the season opener, opened the door for Smith to become the starter, though the Nighthawks decided to go with Jeremiah Masoli who had been with the team longer.

Smith’s first UFL start came in Omaha’s final game of the season, a 25-19 loss to the Mountain Lions of Sacramento in the consolation round of the postseason. In the game, Smith completed 17-of-33 passes for 191 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, including a 81-yard touchdown pass to Chad Lucas.
