The Ravens have a new defensive coordinator this year in Don Martindale, but the change from Dean Pees did not mean a break from continuity on that side of the ball.

Brian Boyle Jersey Martindale was hired as the team’s linebackers coach in 2012, which was the same year George Springer Womens Jersey that Pees took over as coordinator and the two men worked together on some effective units in Baltimore over the years. The team is also bringing back almost all of the major contributors from last year’s unit, which ranked sixth in points allowed, so some might expect little to change in 2018.

According to linebacker Terrell Suggs, though, continuity doesn’t mean the team will be doing things the same way.

These young, hungry bulls [can] kind of get back to the way we used to do things and taking the shackles off of us, so to say. 鈥?Sometimes a player can be shackled by the rules that come with the defense, but I think Wink is just going to allow us to go make plays, Suggs said, via the Baltimore Sun.

Australian rugby star Jordan Mailata spent Eagles rookie camp with an offensive line coach watching his every move, correcting his stance and explaining the basics.

Mailata has never taken a snap in a competitive American football game at any level. He’s still getting used to wearing a helmet. He’s a 6’8, 346-pound curiosity with athleticism to spare, but he’s almost unimaginably raw.

Like many, I was reluctant about being the featured team on Hard Knocks but once we sat down and talked about it as an organization, I feel a lot better and understand why the time is right, Dorsey said in a statement. Hue [Jackson] and I both feel like this team is in a good place and that we are in the process of building something that will lead to success. Being a part of Hard Knocks will give our fans the opportunity to see how passionate the people in our building are about winning and how excited we are about getting to work and preparing for the 2018 season.

If Dorsey really didn’t want to be on Hard Knocks, he did have one outlet available to him: He could have fired Jackson, as teams with new head coaches can’t be forced to do the show. Fortunately for Jackson, Dorsey didn’t go that far.
