Despite winning the Super Bowl only a little more than a month ago, the Baltimore Ravens are undergoing a lot of change. Perhaps this is something that was inevitable given the retirement of the face of the franchise.
Ray Lewis's departure may very well be the catalyst that has helped set in motion all the surprising moves that took place through the first week of free agency.
The Ravens that remain are younger. It's possible that come opening day, 33-year old Chris Johnson could be the oldest player on the Ravens' roster.
This team is also largely unproven. The defense has undergone a major overhaul after suffering a disappointing regular season before getting things together in the playoffs. This will result in nearly a 50 percent turnover rate among defensive starters.
The departures of Anquan Boldin and Matt Birk force changes upon the wide receivers and offensive line, respectively. While there are capable backups already on the roster, don't be surprised if a cheap free agent or rookie joins the mix later this offseason.
For now, let's take a look at what the Ravens' depth chart could look like in September when they open the regular season at M&T Bank Stadium.
