Sam Madison Tutoring Raven’s Defensive Backs
By Brett Foote
Steve Spagnuolo isn’t the only one coaching up the Raven’s secondary this offseason. He has been joined by Sam Madison, according to the Baltimore Sun. Madison and Spags got to know each other well in 2007, when Steve was the defensive coordinator and Sam was a defensive back for the Super Bowl winning New York Giants.
Madison seemed to enjoy his time with the team. “The Ravens are a first-class organization that understands what it takes to push one another and have that bond and camaraderie. It’s been fun being around them this week.”

Bringing in an experienced, Pro Bowl and Super Bowl winning former DB is a great addition to camp. The Ravens have a lot of youth in the secondary and having another experienced voice in the huddle can only help. Oftentimes former players make great coaches because they have been there and done that. Young guys simply respond better to these types of situations.
Madison certainly knows the wrinkles after playing 12 seasons in the NFL, racking up some pretty impressive accolades along the way.
