Ryan started off by talking about veteran Terrell Suggs being a leader on the defense saying, “he does a lot of things behind the scenes that people don’t really know about, is he like a Ray Lewis type? I don’t know if he’s that type of leader…but he is a great and very smart football player and he shares that with the younger guys.”
Ryan also talked about rookie linebacker Kamalei Correa and if the Ravens are trying to slide him from outside linebacker to inside linebacker saying, “they want to teach him how to play all four linebacker spots and this year the opening happens to be at inside linebacker with Darryl Smith’s departure…I expect Zack Orr to be the starter next to CJ Mosley, but in a few years when some of the older guys have moved on Correa could be the guy.”READ MORE: Christmas Village Returns To Inner Harbor With Grand Opening Saturday
Ryan also talked about the teams hopes for the battle to become the main return man between Keenan Reynolds and Michael Campanaro with some of the young running backs getting involved also.
Dempsey started by talking about the Orioles second half of the season saying, “it’s just been such an inconsistent second half so far. I really don’t know what to think is going to happen…they’re going to really have to dig deep down the stretch drive right now we have plenty of time and I’m not panicking.”MORE NEWS: State, Anne Arundel Leaders Tour Annapolis For Small Business Saturday
When asked about Kevin Gausman and his struggles during this season Rick said, “it’s so important that you develop a game plan that is going to be solid. But so far, I haven’t seen that out of Kevin…we’ve all seen the talent, but he has not taken control of his own game yet and it’s really effecting the win loss totals.”
