Here are five 2021 Ravens opponents who have made significant moves this off-season.
Detroit Lions: Matthew Stafford Traded
Long-time franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford was awarded to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for quarterback Jared Goff and three draft picks. Not only is Goff the new quarterback in Detroit, the Lions have a new general manager (Brad Holmes) and a new head coach (Dan Campbell). Stafford asked for a deal because he didn’t want to start over in Detroit.
“Every time you switch GMs and a head coach, you know they want to involve their own people, and that’s going to take time,” Stafford told the Detroit Free Press. “And I honestly didn’t feel I was the right person to oversee this time.”
The Ravens will visit Detroit for the first time since 2013.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Big Ben, Steelers thinking about the future together
Ben Roethlisberger wants to play another season in Pittsburgh, but from the weekend his contract negotiations with the Steelers remained unsolved. Roethlisberger has reported a $ 41.2 million salary cap for the next season, and Steeler’s owner Art Rooney II said the veteran quarterback would not be able to return under those conditions.
The Ravens have played against Roethlisberger 28 times, including the regular season and playoffs, and the 38-year-old quarterback has a 17-11 advantage in those matchups. Roethlisberger made his first game against Baltimore as a rookie in 2004, and it remains to be seen whether his role in the Ravens-Steelers rivalry will continue.
Kansas City Chiefs: Mahomes is about to recover from foot surgery
After the Chiefs were dominated by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl, quarterback Patrick Mahomes underwent successful foot surgery on February 10 to repair a torn plantar plate, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
