Ravens fans likely watched the final seconds of the clock tick down in spite as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots won their sixth Lombardi Trophy but not all is lost.

Three former Ravens – Albert McClellan, Lawrence Guy and John Simon won Super Bowl titles on Sunday night. This comes one year after a slew of former Baltimore players, including Torrey Smith, did the same with the Philadelphia Eagles.

All defensive players, it was only fitting that the game be decided that way. Both Guys and McClellan found the box score in Atlanta – Guy finished with two total tackles while McClellan recorded a tackle for loss.

Given the business that is the NFL, it’s common that players on both teams playing in the Super Bowl have connections to other organizations. It's especially special for McClellan, who was released by the Ravens on October. 

Less than one week later, he inked a deal with the Patriots – a move he surely doesn't regret. 

A veteran linebacker and special teams captain, McClellan was an important piece of Jerry Rosburg’s unit for close to seven seasons in Baltimore. 

McClellan won a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2012 and unfortunately saw his tenure in Baltimore come to an end this season, but it’s a well-deserved achievement.

Disregarding any level of hatred towards the Patriots, Ravens fans can celebrate and be appreciative of the accomplishment of Guy, Simon and McClellan tonight.
