Five former Ravens looking to be champions in Super Bowl LII

Five former Ravens looking to be champions in Super Bowl LII

Five former Ravens are looking to leave Minneapolis, Minnesota with more hardware than they came with.

Wide receiver Torrey Smith, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, safety Corey Graham and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe will all be fighting for the Eagles in their first seasons with the team.

On the Patriots side of the ball, defensive end Lawrence Guy could be bringing back another championship to New England.

Smith, Graham and Ellerbe all won Super Bowls with the Ravens during the 2012-2013 season.

Smith has played an important role on the team during both the regular season and in the playoffs. He tallied up 36 receptions, 430 yards and two touchdowns in the regular season. In their two playoff games, Smith had eight receptions, 108 yards and one touchdown. Smith has said he chose the Eagles over other teams that presented him higher offers because he knew they had the tools to reach this point.

Jernigan was traded to the Eagles along with a third-round compensatory pick in 2017 after spending his first three seasons in the NFL with the Ravens. The defensive tackle played in 15 games earning 16 solo tackles and two- and-a-half sacks. 

Graham- who is in his 11th season- played 14 games with the Eagles. He finished the regular season with 38 tackles and two interceptions. 

And finally, hoping to fly high with the Eagles is Dannell Ellerbe. The 32-year old only played in three games earning eight tackles and has been dealing with a hamstring injury.

Smith, Graham and Ellerbe have been prepping their fellow Eagles on the craziness that is Super Bowl week. Smith tweeted this prior to their trip to Minneapolis.

And Ellerbe told ex-teammate, Steve Smith, he's treating this week just like any other.

Lawrence Guy, who spent three seasons with the Ravens before heading to the Patriots, finished the regular season with 58 tackles and one sack. 

You can watch these familiar faces on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Former Raven Terrell Suggs and the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl-bound

Former Raven Terrell Suggs and the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl-bound

Terrell Suggs and the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Tennessee Titans 35-24 Sunday to advance to Super Bowl LIV in Miami. 

Suggs, who spent 16 seasons with the Ravens, will look to cement his Hall of Fame candidacy with a victory in his second Super Bowl appearance (Won SB XLVII) this time as a member of the AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Suggs departed from Baltimore before the 2019 season, signing a one-year deal with his hometown Arizona Cardinals before being waived mid-season. 

The Ravens were rumored to be interested in a reunion with their all-time leader in sacks but did not put in a claim, being last in waiver priority, and Suggs was claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs.



While the Ravens' 2019 season ended prematurely at the hands of the Titans, fans in Baltimore can take solace knowing that Suggs and the Chiefs helped bring the Titans' magical season to an end.

Suggs' accolades (2011 AP Def. Player of the Year, 2003 AP Def. Rookie of the Year, 7x Pro-Bowl, 1x All-Pro) will stand the test of time, but adding a second Super Bowl ring to his resume would make his Hall of Fame candidacy that much greater.

The Ravens appear to have their entire coaching staff returning for the 2020 season

The Ravens appear to have their entire coaching staff returning for the 2020 season

While the Ravens roster will likely remain mostly together for the 2020 regular season, it appears the coaching staff will stay entirely intact, too. 

After both coordinators, Greg Roman and Don “Wink” Martindale, had interviews with the Browns and Giants, respectively, those jobs were filled by Kevin Stefanski and Joe Judge. 

And more recently, quarterbacks coach James Urban and tight ends coach Bobby Engram were requested for interviews by the Eagles. Harbaugh said both Engram and Urban pulled out of the running and weren’t interested.

“It looks like our staff is going to stay together,” coach John Harbaugh said. “I can tell you that. I’m not saying anything couldn’t happen; there are always things brewing for a certain period of time.”

The Ravens have every offensive starter from the divisional playoff game under contract for next season, and now appear to have the offensive coordinator and all of the position coaches back on-board for another run too. The Ravens set a franchise record with 531 points, led by Lamar Jackson.

Things are still fluid, as a job opportunity for anyone on the staff can pop up out of the blue. But for now, the Ravens look like they’ll run the entire operation back for another go at a Super Bowl.
