OWINGS MILLS Jordan Scarlett Jersey , Md. (AP)draft evidently wasn’t enough action for Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, who extended the swap-fest into Day 2.After going through the second round Friday night without a pick, Newsome moved back twice during the third round before finally settling on offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. of Oklahoma with the 83rd overall selection and Oklahoma tight end Mark Andrews at No. 86.”Another long day,” Newsome said after his work was done.Brown is the son of the late Orlando ”Zeus’ Brown, who spent part of his 11-year NFL career as a tackle with the Ravens. The younger Brown fills a pressing need, because the Ravens failed to exercise the option of right tackle Austin Howard.”Orlando is one of the first players I looked at this year,” assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said. ”Just a very, very good player. Physical, tough, nasty, didn’t get beat. Just the type of guy we’ve had success with in the past.”The 6-foot-8, 345-pound Brown fared poorly at the scouting combine, but DeCosta dismissed that because the tackle fared so well in game competition.Baltimore took tight end Hayden Hurst with its first pick, and now it appears as if both rookie tight ends will be catching passes from quarterback Joe Flacco at training camp.Newsome, a Hall of Fame tight end, was asked if he got a thrill out of picking tight ends so early during his final draft with the Ravens.”I hope Joe enjoys these tight ends as much as I enjoy these tight ends,” Newsome replied.The pick used on Brown was one Baltimore had entering the draft. The one for Andrews – Oklahoma’s career leader in receiving yards by a tight end – came in a trade with Kansas City.As a result of his dealings David Montgomery Jersey , Newsome has set himself up for a very busy day Saturday.The Ravens have three picks in the fourth round, one in the fifth, two in the sixth round and one seventh-round selection.”Our board really looks good, and think we will still be able to add some quality football players to our roster,” Newsome said.Newsome’s first trade of the night was No. 65 to Oakland for Nos. 75 (third round), 152 (fifth) and 212 (sixth).He then dished off that No. 75 to Kansas City for 86 and 122. The reason the Ravens entered the night with a second-round pick is because Newsome traded it to Philadelphia in the deal that enabled the Ravens to snag Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson with the 32nd overall pick.Jackson was joined by Hurst for a session with the local media Friday.Ravens coach John Harbaugh emphatically reminded everyone Thursday night that Flacco is the team’s starting quarterback, and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg echoed that assertion on Friday.”Joe’s the quarterback of this football team. Lamar is going to develop,” Mornhinweg said.Though Jackson won a Heisman Trophy in 2016, from his point of view that’s not as significant the Super Bowl MVP trophy that Flacco owns.”If you win the Super Bowl, you’re the G.O.A.T. to me,” Jackson said. ”So I’m going to try to learn as much as I can from Joe Flacco.”Experience counts in the NFL, but versatility in the pocket counts for something, too. Flacco has run for 17 touchdowns in his 10-year career (including playoffs). Jackson ran for 50 in his three years with the Cardinals.”I can make any throw on the field,” Jackson said, ”but I can bring something else to the table, and that’s dynamic running ability.”Hurst, the 25th overall pick Riley Ridley Jersey , was taken after Newsome twice traded back in the first round.Given that Hurst was taken in the 17th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012, he had no complaints about watching 24 picks go before him.”I sat around waiting for my name to be called,” he said, ”but I couldn’t be more excited to be part of this organization. Being in the same uniform as Ed Reed and Ray Lewis is extremely humbling.”Newsome will be stepping down after this season. DeCosta will take over in 2019.— Jameis Winston is back on the job, though the Tampa Bay Buccaneers still aren’t saying if it’s as the team’s starting quarterback.Winston’s three-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy ended Tuesday, the first day the fourth-year pro was permitted to return to the team’s training facility and have contact with coaches and teammates.It was a day off for players following Monday night’s 30-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, however coach Dirk Koetter said the first overall pick from the 2015 draft showed up bright and early, ready to begin preparation for the Chicago Bears.What Koetter declined to say was whether Winston or Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has the Bucs off to a 2-1 start while throwing for more than 400 yards in a league-record three consecutive games will start Sunday.More Tampa Bay Buccaneers newsTitans force 4 turnovers by Winston, hold off Tampa BaySloppy Winston dooms Bucs in 37-26 loss to PanthersBridgewater’s breakout lifts Saints past Bucs 31-24Buccaneers drop Rams 55-40 behind Jameis Winston’s 4 touchdown passesBuccaneers go down to Giants after Daniel Jones rushes for game-winning TD“I know there’s a lot of interest in the quarterback thing. I did talk to both Jameis and Fitz,” Koetter began.“It’s great to see Jameis back in the building. He was here early and working hard. We welcome Jameis back, glad to have him. Short week,” the coach added. “He assured me he was ready to go, which I don’t doubt for a minute that’s he’s been working hard.”Without elaborating, Koetter said he shared the team’s plans with both quarterbacks.“We know what we’re going to do. Both guys know what we’re going to do,” the coach said, “I hope everybody can appreciate it doesn’t do us any good to tell our opponents what we’re going to do. That’ll work itself out as the week goes on.”Winston started 45 of 48 games over the past three seasons Greedy Williams Jersey , going 18-27 while throwing for 11,636 yards, 69 touchdowns and 44 interceptions. The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner has topped 4,000 yards passing twice, but has yet to lead Tampa Bay to the playoffs.Fitzpatrick, a 35-year-old journeyman who played for seven teams in 14 seasons, has thrown for 1,230 yards and 11 touchdowns in Winston’s absence.The Bucs rallied from a 20-point halftime deficit to make Monday night’s game close. Fitzpatrick finished with 411 yards and three TDs, however he also helped dig the hole Tampa Bay couldn’t escape with interceptions on three consecutive pass attempts in the second quarter.Winston is expected to meet with the media on Wednesday, when team begins preparation for the Bears.Fitzpatrick was asked Monday night about Winston’s impending return and what it might mean for his role moving forward.“You know, I have so much fun playing this game. … I’m here just ready to do whatever it takes to help the team win, and I think that will be my mindset going forward,” Fitzpatrick said.Fitzpatrick also started three games last season, going 2-1 while Winston was sidelined with a shoulder injury.“This quarterback issue we have right now is not an adversity,” Koetter said. “We are blessed. I think we have three good quarterbacks on our roster right now. Not all teams in the league can say that.”
