"Ozzie's just one of the greats," Billick told The Baltimore Sun at a Sports Legends Series benefit for the Casey Cares Foundation held Thursday night at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley. "Obviously, for me, he was a great partner when I was here, and Eric will do a great job. Obviously, it's always a little touchy, the transition, when you do it and specifically outline it in this way as they come into the [NFL] draft. And obviously, Eric's going to have to have a stronger say. Ozzie's going to shepherd him through that, obviously, and get through the year."
