The last time a player gave his team the “Dream Team” label, it didn’t work out well. But Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones isn’t worried about that.
Asked about the Ravens’ acquisition of Elvis Dumervil, Jones echoed Vince Young’s infamous comment about the Eagles two years ago.
“That’s awesome. It’s like a dream team in the making. I can’t wait until we all get together,” Jones told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Jones also said he has no fears about how the holdovers will fit into a Ravens front that has also recently added Chris Canty and Marcus Spears, saying that any time General Manager Ozzie Newsome brings players in, he has a good plan for how those players will be used.
“Don’t worry. Ozzie Newsome always has a plan. In Ozzie, we trust,” Jones said.
Newsome has earned that trust, consistently putting together one of the best rosters in the league in his time running the Ravens. Even if “dream team” is probably not the word Newsome would use to describe his handiwork.
