Current and former Ravens joined Glenn Clark Radio to discuss the impact of free agency on the team. Here's what they had to say.
"You never wanna try and be somebody else. But I would definitely say they're trying to create something special and I think all the guys will attest to that. They wanna start something special here and take this team as far as we possibly can."
- New Ravens cornerback Justin Bethel March 27 on comparisons between the Ravens' secondary and the Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" secondary after the addition of safety Earl Thomas
"I'm going to be the best me I can be. I cannot be Terrell Suggs. I can't. Hopefully when it's all said and done, I can be compared to him, but as of right now, I've got to be me. And if that's leading the defense and I need to take that on -- whatever that is -- I've got to do it my way."
- Ravens pass rusher Matthew Judon March 12 on needing to step up after the departure of Terrell Suggs in free agency
"He possesses the skill set to be an every-down back. It's really how they want to use him. Obviously, he can run the ball on first or second down, but his ability to pass protect on third down, you won't have a problem there. He can pick up the blitz. He understands what defenses are trying to do to him. ... He'll be able to do all of that."
- Saints radio analyst and former running back Deuce McAllister March 14 on new Ravens running back Mark Ingram
"What I saw from them the last two years is keying in on little things. When I say I looked up at Terrell Suggs as a leader, they were there also so they got a chance to see that and learn that. From just watching them guys, they are relentless. I can tell their effort, the passion they have for the game is all the way there. All they need is that opportunity."
