Ray Lewis: "We don't care about Terrell Owens."

OWINGS MILLS -- Ravens All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis, who is recuperating from thumb surgery to repair ligament damage, discussed several topics in a brief news conference Thursday as the team concluded a mandatory minicamp.

On off-field issues, including running back Jamal Lewis' federal drug conspiracy charges: "The thing about us is we've always got each others' back. We don't worry about nothing outside this organization. If you can't find a reason to smile, we'll smile for you. We're all human, and you're going to go through things. Deal with them and move on." 

On making a Super Bowl run: "If we speak about anything less but Jacksonville, we're shorting ourselves. We've got probably a three-year span left to keep this corps together so why not do it now?" 

And, continuing a feud with Philadelphia Eagles receiver Terrell Owens: "T.O has done nothing against us. We don't care about Terrell Owens. We're not looking for him. I'm tired of talking about him. Who is he?" …

New backup quarterback Kordell Stewart on learning the playbook: "It's like going south on I-695 doing 150 mph, and you're new to this country so you have to read every single sign."

After signing Stewart, the Ravens will not pursue former Cleveland Browns starter Tim Couch. …

While tight end Trent Smith recovers from a broken leg, undrafted rookie Brett Pierce is opening eyes with a series of acrobatic catches. … 

Center Mike Flynn worked at guard with Casey Rabach shifting over to center. …

Right guard Bennie Anderson appears much heavier than the 345 pounds he's listed at, higher than his 356-pound estimate …

The offense struggled in the two-minute drill and will receive extra work in that category at a final off-season minicamp that begins Monday.
