What if you could have a Baltimore Ravens 53 man roster comprised of all the best players in team history, all in their prime and with no salary cap? Well it’s the dog days of the offseason so let’s dream that scenario up right now!
The Baltimore Ravens have had too many great players to make this easy. That tells you how good Ravens fans have had it. In 21 years of football Baltimore has more to brag about than a lot of NFL teams that have been kicking it for much longer. It’s the dog days of the offseason. There isn’t much we haven’t covered a thousand times over at this point. Today, let’s make this offseason lull a lot of fun.
Making a 53 man roster with the Ravens all-time greats was annoyingly difficult. Some big names got left off this list. It’s not just a list of the greatest players in franchise history, it’s fitted into a 53 man roster. Today we’re combining the whole history of the purple and black and taking 53 players to form a fully functional hypothetical roster. Here at Ebony Bird, we’ve done a lot to honor the history of the Ravens. Last year we did a Ravens Legends Bracket. Ray Lewis beat Ed Reed in the championship to be named the top Ravens legend.
Honoring Ravens history:
I wrote another post that was the Ravens all-time NFL Draft team. This is kind of like that, however that list only used players selected by the Ravens in the NFL Draft. This is a unique project that I hope the Ravens Flock enjoys. It’s a nice trip down memory lane. Most importantly, it gets you some of your football fix in a month of the year when you need it most.
