Ravens free-agent additions Morgan Moses, Michael Pierce, Patrick Ricard and Marcus Williams recently joined Glenn Clark Radio to discuss why they signed with the Ravens. Here’s what they had to say.

“Being able to go to a quality organization and add winning to it as well, it’s a dream come true. I’m going into Year 9, and now I have the ability to play winning football. Not a lot of guys get that opportunity. So to be able to get that, to go to a family-structured organization and be able to win football games, that’s all you can ask for.”

“My agent had a pretty good idea of potential landing spots. He mentioned Baltimore and I was just like, ‘There’s no way on God’s green earth this is going to happen.’ I didn’t want to get too excited, but [Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta] and them kind of reached out pretty early. Like I told my agent, ‘If there’s any way I can get back home, that’s where I want to be.'”

“It’s a fair organization. I feel like when guys come there, they feel welcomed right away. They feel like they can be themselves, and you truly can. I’ve heard [from] guys from other teams. For any media stuff, you have to get it cleared by the team first, all that. I had one guy tell me he had his hood on in the building and people that work there were like, ‘Hey, do you not want to be here?'”

“His last words to me basically were, ‘Go out there and give it your all and never give up.’ He told me, ‘Go be the best safety in the NFL.’ That was pretty much the last words I heard from him. He said, ‘I love you.’ He passed away a week later. I still think about him all the time.”
