“Anthony is highly regarded throughout the NFL. As a former Ravens’ draft pick who made significant contributions while playing here, he understands the culture of our organization and the standard to which Baltimore defense is held.”

Ryan, 58, is a 20-year NFL coaching veteran who most recently served in the same role for the Washington Football Team in 2019.
