Ravens S Kyle Hamilton discusses team’s defensive trajectory entering 2023 offseason

The Baltimore Ravens’ defense had an exceptional 2022 season, and remain hopeful that they can achieve even better results next year. Rookie safety Kyle Hamilton played a major role in their defensive dominance, and told reporters about his outlook for the future during the Ravens’ end-of-season press conference.

Asked how he and the defense might be able to build on their 2022 campaign, Hamilton made it clear that Baltimore’s extension of a key player in their linebacking corps would make a huge difference. He also acknowledged that they might lose some pieces that were important to their success, but said that people are ready to fill in wherever needed.

“…Signing Roquan [Smith] was huge, so he’s going to be here for the foreseeable future, and he’s a big leader on our defense. “Who knows – we might lose some pieces that are integral to our success. But, at the same time, just organizationally and defense-wise, top to bottom, I think everybody is so prepared to just fill in any role that they need too – and myself included – wherever that may be. I think we’ve set a good foundation for next year.”

Every team’s roster will change during the offseason, however sightly, but Baltimore would be wise to retain as much of their defensive talent as possible ahead of their 2023 season. Luckily for them, Hamilton is still on his rookie contract and will remain a key part of their defense for years to come.
