C.J. Mosley completely understands the significance of becoming part of a defense that has a long-standing reputation of greatness.

Mosley, the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft, will seek this summer to become a starting linebacker with the Baltimore Ravens. Athletes who have starred at the position for Baltimore include Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott — who once wore the No. 57 now utilized by Mosley.

The Ravens won two Super Bowls by playing rugged defense, and now Mosley is being asked to adhere to that custom.

Fortunately, the situation has a familiar ring to it.
