and it should after last year. They didn't get the pressure that was needed and gave up too much against the run...

 

Terrell+Suggs+Willie+Henry+Yp0KqCjtRPSm.

 

 

 

 

 

At this week’s minicamp, the starting three was Urban, Williams and Willie Henry, with Williams manning the “nose” slot and Henry at tackle. Pierce, who made 13 starts in 2017, ran with the backups.

If that’s still the lineup in September, it’s a major promotion for Henry, a 2016 fourth-round draft pick who played little as a rookie but provided energy and athleticism when given a chance last season. He finished tied for third on the team with 3.5 sacks, and it seems the Ravens believe he can bolster the interior pass rush.

This starting alignment also would move Williams back to the position where he developed into one of the league’s better run stuffers. The Ravens moved him last season so he could team with Pierce on what was envisioned as an immovable front wall, but the defense ended up yielding the third-highest single-season rushing total in franchise history.

So maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that Wink Martindale, the new defensive coordinator, seemingly has a different plan.....https://www.baltimor...inicamp-thought

When an NFL season is over, there is a game or a stretch of them that usually defines it. The Ravens are about to enter one of those periods.
