CAMP CONFIDENTIAL: Much has been made about what the Baltimore Ravens have lost since winning Super Bowl XLVII. Superstar linebacker Ray Lewis and veteran Pro Bowl center Matt Birk retired after the title game, while wide receiver Anquan Boldin was traded to San Francisco. Safety Bernard Pollard was cut and signed with Tennessee, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe went to Miami as a free agent, linebacker Paul Kruger signed with Cleveland, cornerback Cary Williams went up I-95 to Philadelphia and veteran safety Ed Reed took his act to Houston. General manager Ozzie Newsome has done a decent job of replenishing things especially of defense, however, bringing in ex-Broncos pass rusher Elvis Dumervil as well as veterans Marcus Spears and Chris Canty. He also got younger at safety by brining in former Oakland No. 1 pick Michael Huff and drafting Florida's Matt Elam in the first round. Kansas State rookie Arthur Brown will have the unenviable task of trying to replace Lewis and or Ellerbe in the middle.
