The Ravens have lost several of their starting unrestricted free agents on defense, but there’s no reason for any alarm. The players the Ravens have lost so far this offseason were either too old or simply not good enough to merit multiyear, lucrative contracts.
With the loss of C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs and others, the Ravens will have to rebuild their defense in a hurry and Baltimore will have to brace for a serious star-power shortage from both of its major professional teams.
Only 11 players remain from the last Ravens team that made the playoffs in 2014. Those survivors are counseling younger teammates to cherish the opportunity as they prepare to play the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
