Baltimore Ravens: The Future of the Ring of Honor

1 of 6

The Baltimore Ravens are still a relatively new team in the history of the NFL, but they certainly have players who will go down as some of the greatest of all-time.

Throughout the Ravens tenure in Baltimore, they consistently rank as one of the top-10 defenses in the league and arguably have the greatest safety in their short history in Ed Reed.

Earlier this week, the Ravens expressed their desire to put Reed in the Ravens Ring of Honor. The only hold up is Reed has still not retired, but as soon as it becomes official, the team has every intention of putting the future first-ballot Hall of Famer in their exclusive club.

“He’s one of our greatest players of all-time,” team president Dick Cass said. “But he hasn’t officially retired yet. So, as soon as he officially retires, we’ll do something.”

The Ravens have placed eight of their players in their Ring of Honor: Earnest Byner (2001), Michael McCrary (2004), Peter Boulware (2006), Jonathan Ogden (2008), Matt Stover (2011), Jamal Lewis (2012), Ray Lewis (2013) and Todd Heap (2014).

So while the Ravens wait for Reed to make a decision about his playing career, let’s take a look at five other Ravens who could find themselves in the Ring of Honor down the road.
