OWINGS MILLS -- Here's the latest information on the Baltimore Ravens' pursuit of a starting running back and fullback tandem. Please keep reading for further details.

OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens have a strong interest in a potential trade for Buffalo Bills running back Willis McGahee, according to three NFL sources. One of those sources outlined a scenario where Baltimore would execute a trade for McGahee and then sign his former fullback with the Bils, Daimon Shelton. Shelton is a bruising 6-foot, 262-pounder who has played for the Bills for the past three seasons. He has prior stints with the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars. The Ravens have been talking with Shelton's agent, Angelo Wright, and could advance their negotiations with Shelton if or when they get a trade struck for McGahee and a contract extension. McGahee is due a $2.15 base salary for 2007 under his current contract, but agent Drew Rosenhaus would try to negotiate a long-term lucrative extension for McGahee. It's believed the Ravens are no longer likely to pursue Detroit Lions free agent fullback Corey Schlesinger, whom they've spoken to this week.
