Best Surprise Recognition

It made sense for Brian Billick to attend the Ravens’ news conference for Haloti Ngata’s retirement in May, as Billick was the team’s head coach when Ngata started his career.

It was extremely pleasant when team owner Steve Bisciotti used the stage to announce that Ngata would deservedly be inducted to the Ravens Ring of Honor … in 2020, after the team’s first Super Bowl-winning coach. Billick was inducted in September, coming full circle with the franchise that had fired him in 2007.
