Many Baltinore Ravens players had spent a season in Europe, just like those in the 2005 squad with Tony Pashos from the Cologne Centurions, TE Darnell Dinkins, TE Daniel Wilcox and DT Kelly Gregg from Rhein Fire alongside DT Aubrayo Franklin from Frankfurt Galaxy.
But most impressive were certainly all those season 2000 Ravens, who had managed to win the 2001 Super Bowl.
The 2001 Ravens saw RB Jason Brookins, who had remained forceful despite injuries during both seasons.
Then there was Marques Douglas, who had played for the Ravens until 2004.
Season 2000 had been huge for League MVP`s Jonathan Ogden and LB Ray Lewis, as well as for Punter Kyle Richardson.
First Anthony Mitchell took the World Bowl and then he went for Super Bowl with the Ravens, where he had scored 15 tackles and a match-breaking TD against the Titans in the playoffs.

Anthony Mitchell, Clarence Love and Kipp Vickers were very happy Ravens after they had won the Super Bowl in 2001.
DE Carl Powell got moved around a bit by the NFL in the year 2000, when he missed the World Bowl win at Rhein Fire before he got shifted to the Super Bowl champion in Baltimore.
Season 2007 brought kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd to the Ravens, where he played in two games before he was passed on to the Carolina Panthers, which was a great move for him as his 48 games in 4 seasons did reveal.
Season 1997 saw punter Kyle Richardson at Rhein Fire.
