Ray Lewis says Ravens are unlikely to repeat
While visiting New York during NFL draft week, Ray Lewis was asked whether he thought the Baltimore Ravens were in position to repeat as champions. The former inside linebacker, Ray Lewis told Robert Klemko of USA Today that is was unlikely, Lewis believes the team lost to much team chemistry that led them to the Super Bowl.
Lewis told USA TODAY Sports. “But who knows? It’s unpredictable, as always. Hopefully, they try to pull enough together, use their youth and try to make a run. But it’s hard to try that formula. That formula usually doesn’t work.”
Lewis wasn’t joking, the Ravens have lost plenty of key players including, Ed Reed(Texans), Bernard Pollard(Titans), Anquan Boldin(49ers), not to mention Ray Lewis himself. All of which were key in leading the team to the Super Bowl.
General Manager Ozzie Newsome will be looking to replace these players and reload during the draft this week, and he does have a knack of picking out good players in the draft, Lewis being one of them.
One thing the Ravens will not have to worry about is quarterback, as Joe Flacco signed a deal that will keep him with the team for 6 more years.
