Anthony Levine is the most notable player on this list without a doubt. A longtime fan-favorite, Levine has been with the Ravens for the last nine seasons serving as a core special teamer and locker room leader.

He’s one of the few players remaining from the team’s last Super Bowl victory and has nearly 130 career NFL games under his belt. But this might be the year that the Ravens finally cut ties with their longtime special teams captain.

Levine turned 34-years-old in March and is in competition with a number of other players who will be competing for the reserve safety roles on the team. And most of them can contribute on special teams as well.

One such player is Jordan Richards who logged a whopping 334 special teams snaps in 2020. Richards led all Ravens players in special teams snaps and was on the field for almost 80 percent of all special teams plays.

Then you have third-round pick Brandon Stephens who’s transitioning to safety in the NFL after playing running back and then cornerback in college.

Don’t discount the other young safeties on the roster such as Geno Stone, Ar’Darius Washington, or even Nigel Warrior from turning some heads either.

There might just be too much competition to consider giving Levine a roster spot.
