Ravens' Douglas to visit Broncos

OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens unrestricted free agent defensive end Marques Douglas will visit the Denver Broncos on Monday, according to his agent.

Douglas, who started the past two seasons at right end for the Ravens, has previously visited the Cleveland Browns.

The 6-foot-2, 290-pound Douglas registered a career-high 5 1/2 sacks and 96 tackles last season.

Ravens unrestricted free agent offensive guard Bennie Anderson, who has started at right guard since 2001 for Baltimore, visited the Buffalo Bills. Anderson was replaced by former Pittsburgh Steelers starter Keydrick Vincent.

Free agent linebacker Ed Hartwell has narrowed his choices to the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons and could make a decision soon, according to his agent, Harold Lewis.

The agent for Ravens unrestricted free agent offensive tackle Ethan Brooks has held preliminary discussions with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Meanwhile, the Ravens have until Wednesday to decide whether to match the one-year, $3 million offer sheet that restricted free agent running back Chester Taylor signed with the Browns.

If the Ravens don't match the offer, they would be compensated with a sixth-round draft pick.

The Ravens are inclined to take the entire seven days allotted to decide if they'll match an offer sheet that includes a $2 million base salary, a $1 million signing bonus and an additional $200,000 of incentive clauses. Taylor would be paid $100,000 if he is selected to the Pro Bowl and $100,000 if he gains 1,000 yards.

A sixth-round pick in 2002 out of Toledo, Taylor rushed for 714 yards and two touchdowns last season in relief of Pro Bowl running back Jamal Lewis. He also caught 30 passes.
