Marcus Williams is confident Ravens will have a top defense again in 2024

The NFL is admittedly a copycat league where teams try to emulate, replicate or adapt the schemes and systems of the most successful and innovative teams.

After fielding a historic No. 1 ranked defense in the league last season that became the first to finish first in fewest points allowed (16.5 per game), sacks (60) and takeaways (31), the Baltimore Ravens saw several integral players and coaches on that side of the ball depart for lucrative deals and new opportunities elsewhere this offseason.

Defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald is now the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks and two of his top assistants will be calling the shots for their own units this year—Anthony Weaver with the Miami Dolphins and Dennard Wilson with the Tennessee Titans.
