The Baltimore Ravens upgraded their linebacking corp over the weekend with the signing of former Denver Broncos pass rusher Elvis Dumervil. The addition of Dumervil seems to have lifted the spirits of everyone around the organization after the early free agency signing period destroyed the Ravens roster. Dumervil will take over the spot left vacant by Paul Kruger, who left for the Cleveland Browns, and he is an immediate upgrade.

The man who will be playing opposite Dumervil, Terrell Suggs, is just as happy as anyone by the addition of the elite pass rusher. Suggs expressed his happiness to The Baltimore Sun and even took a shot at Kruger in the process.

I think this move is awesome,” Terrell Suggs said, via The Baltimore Sun. “It shows we’re still in the business of winning and we have the best [general manager] in the world. He is a phenomenal pass rusher and I have not had a chance to play alongside another dominant pass rusher.”

Obviously Suggs thinks Dumervil is much better than Kruger and he’ll provide an instant boost to the defense. He’s right.

The Ravens will still need to replace both starting safeties from the Super Bowl run and find players to fill in at inside linebacker after losing Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe, but the pass rush should still be a dynamic force that could carry this defensive unit moving forward.
