Free Agency: Ranking priority for Baltimore Ravens top free agents
5. Anthony Levine:
Oh, Co-Cap, my Co-Cap! Where would the Baltimore Ravens be without your versatility and leadership on defense?
Is Anthony Levine the best defensive player in football? No, not even close. Heck, he isn’t even the best on his own team. Even with that being said, Levine’s importance to this team cannot simply be measured in numbers. The fact of the matter is Levine does so many jobs for the Ravens defense and his impact is beyond measure.
From a pure leadership standpoint alone Levine is worth his weight in gold. Levine has been a part of the Ravens organization since 2012 when the franchise won its second Super Bowl title. He’s been a steady contributor for the team both on special teams and even in a new hybrid role on defense. Levine lines up both as a linebacker and a defensive back for Baltimore.
Anthony Levine’s versatility is something that often goes overlooked by Ravens fans, but without him, the defense wouldn’t be as stout as they have been. Bringing Levine back should be a priority for the team, albeit not one that will make or break 2020.
Verdict: Resign him
