Going back to nose, I’m pretty much back home, you know? defensive tackle Brandon Williams said in a conference call Friday. With nose tackle Michael Pierce no longer in Baltimore, Williams won’t have to play much, if at all, as a three-technique (lined up over the guard’s outside shoulder).
Defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale said the Ravens this offseason focused on improving their run defense. They let Michael Pierce leave in free agency, which will allow Wiliams to slide back to what he called his “natural habitat” at nose tackle while surrounded by the more athletic Campbell and Wolfe. Analytics show Campbell has been one of the top run-stuffers in the NFL in recent years while also piling up 31.5 sacks over his past three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
