  • Ravens cut cornerback Hampton after arrest for drunken driving (Reuters)
    (Reuters) - The Baltimore Ravens on Monday cut Victor Hampton after the cornerback was charged over the weekend in North Carolina with drunken driving. Hampton, 22, was stopped by police on Saturday in Charlotte driving 100 miles per hour (160 kph) in a 55 mph (89 kph) zone on Interstate 77, police said, adding that he was charged with driving while impaired. Two passengers in Hampton’s vehicle were arrested after police officers said they saw them trying to conceal weapons under the passenger seat. Hampton, signed by the Ravens in January, had a 0.10 blood-alcohol level, police said.

  • Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton dissed in latest QB Rankings

    Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center.While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of the storm, they are key cogs in any offense.In the running game, they establish control at the point of the attack. If they get blown off the ball, a back isn’t going anywhere. And in the passing game, they set up…
