Lawrence Vickers to Ravens: 'I'm coming with it'
IRVING, Texas – Lawrence Vickers has a 12-game history with Baltimore, playing for Cleveland and Houston, so he knows what the Ravens defense is about.
“Let me tell you something, I played them two times a year every year I’ve been in the NFL, right?” Vickers said. “And I’m still here standing. Still mean. Still stiff. They’re going to have to jump me, man. You feel me? They’re going to have to jump me, that’s the way it’s going to be.
"If you go back watching things, they’re out there jumping me because I’m coming with it. And they know I’m coming with it, just like I know they’re coming with it. Let’s meet in the lines. That’s just how it goes.”
Earlier in the day on a conference call Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was asked about the Cowboys getting their running game going against Baltimore, which is 20th against the run.
"I tell you what, they can look to do whatever they want to do, but it ain't going to be what they think it's going to be," Lewis said.
Vickers said Lewis was entitled to his opinion.
“Names don’t scare me, man,” Vickers said. “Teams don’t scare me, man. I’m a man before anything, so I’ll just let other men just talk. You see me in between them lines. That’s how I get it done, like that.”
In January, Vickers helped Houston’s Arian Foster run for 132 yards against Baltimore, the most the Ravens allowed in a playoff game in their history. Unfortunately, the Texans lost and Vickers’ Browns and Texans were a combined 2-10 against Baltimore.
