Safety Anthony Levine has been a fixture on the Ravens special teams units for the last decade, but he won’t be back for an 11th season with the team.

Levine announced his retirement on Wednesday. He joined the Ravens in 2012 after spending a couple of years on the Packers practice squad and became a fixture on special teams the next year. He appeared in 146 regular season games and six postseason games during his time with the team.

“Anthony is a forever Raven, as selfless as they come,” General Manager Eric DeCosta said in a statement. “We wish him the very best in his retirement as a player and can’t wait to see what challenges he takes on next.”

Levine retires with 149 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions, a forced fumble, and four fumble recoveries over the course of his career.

  1. Sorry to see him go he was there when the Ravens needed him all around good player

  2. You really don’t miss those special teams guys until they are gone. A very underrated contributor who will be missed.

  3. Co-Cap has been a fixture on teams for a long time. And an admirable defensive backup in any position in the secondary. The Ravens will miss him, both on the field and off.

  4. One of the heart and souls of the Ravens elite special teams. They’ve already announced he’ll be joining the coaching staff, so I’m excited to see him contribute in that capacity. A Raven through and through.

  5. Levine is a class act. Glad to see he will be staying with the Ravens. If he wants it, I can definitely see this guy being a future DC.
