Orioles broadcaster and Mr. Angelos employee, Jim Hunter, apparently boarded an airplane with former Bucs quarterback Chris Simms in Tampa this morning bound for BWI.

MASN is reporting that Simms is heading to Owings Mills for a job interview.

Meanwhile, the Ravens PR has released this: The Baltimore Ravens have waived the following player (injured):

David Pittman (CB, 5-11, 185, 3rd-year, Northwestern State)

Baltimore has also signed the following players to its practice squad:

Nate Lawrie (TE, 6-6, 255, 4th-year, Yale)
Marcus Mason (RB, 5-9, 215, 1st-year, Youngstown State)
Bryan Mattison (DE, 6-3, 272, Rookie, Iowa)
Matt Willis (WR, 5-11, 190, 2nd-year, UCLA)

Not a surprise to see Simms in town given the Ravens’ frustrating quarterback depth situation.

At best they only have two live arms for practice on Wednesday as they prep for the Bengals: Joe Flacco (who they don’t want to start but it appears that’s the way it’s going to be) and Casey Bramlet, who looked better coming off a plane 15 hours before gametime than most QBs have looked here over the last decade.

Troy Smith’s illness remains a mystery (and the Ravens and NFL don’t ever discuss personal illnesses with media as a business and privacy practice). Kyle Boller’s labrum isn’t a mystery to anyone any more and he won’t be playing anytime soon.

So, on comes Chris Simms, the former king of Austin and most of the state of Texas.

Casey will have more from the complex in Owings Mills in a few hours.

Don’t forget to join us Wednesday night at Della Roses in Canton Crossing for the premier of “Billick Live.”

More major WNST announcements will be made on Wednesday night.
