With Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets stealing a lot of headlines during the NFL offseason, a few potential title-contending teams have flown under the radar and could make a lot of noise in the upcoming 2023 NFL season.
One of those teams is the new-look Baltimore Ravens, who were able to avoid disaster during the offseason by signing superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson to a lucrative long-term deal to set up the team’s future beyond the 2023 campaign.
Along with securing Jackon’s future with the team, Baltimore drafted arguably the best wide receiver in the draft in Zay Flowers and signed superstar wideout Odell Beckham Jr. in NFL free agency.
Everything seems to be coming together for the Ravens at the right time, and former NFL player Darius Butler believes Baltimore is headed for the Super Bowl, as he told Kay Adams on “Up & Adams” this week.

Butler and Adams both mention all the upgrades the Ravens brought in during the offseason, with Beckham and Flowers being at the top of the list to help improve this offense and give Jackson something more to work with in the passing game, along with star tight end Mark Andrews.
As always, as Butler points out, the defense in Baltimore should be solid, which makes the Ravens a great all-around team heading into the 2023 campaign.
However, the key to success for the Ravens will be whether the team’s best players can stay healthy and productive on the field for Baltimore, as Jackson and Beckham have dealt with numerous injuries over the years.NEXT: The Ravens Officially Welcome J.K. Dobbins Back
