4. Bringing back defensive backs Geno Stone and Daryl Worley

Geno Stone returned to Baltimore signing a one-year deal less than 24 hours after hitting the free-agent market.

Back when Stone signed his deal, it was a relief because Chuck Clark had been traded to the New York Jets and reinforcements were needed. Then, when Marcus Williams went down injured earlier this season, his presence became crucial and Stone has surely stepped up to the plate.

Stone has appeared in all four games this season starting three. He has intercepted two passes, both of those picks on the road at Cincinnati and Cleveland, and returned for 36 yards each, and he's also completed 21 tackles according to Pro Football Reference.

Another member of the secondary re-signed by Baltimore was Daryl Worley, who spent time both on the practice squad and the active roster of the Ravens last year.

In 2022, Worley appeared in eight games and started one game, the finale in Cincy, in which he completed five tackles while breaking up two passes. Worley went down injured last Sunday at Cleveland, but like Stone, he's been a precious piece of the Ravens' defense in the early 2023 season.

In two games this year, Worley has logged 69 snaps in special-team plays to go with 89 on defense and he's expected to return to a backup role with the returns of Marcus Williams and Marlon Humphrey around the corner.
