NFL Shot Has Been Long Time Coming For Anthony Levine
The safety was pulled up to the active roster after spending the last three years on the practice squad.

It was Ravens Special Teams Coordinator Jerry Rosburg, so Levine picked up before he ordered – and was glad he did.
Rosburg had good news, informing Levine that he was getting called up to the active roster from the practice squad.
“When he called me I just left and went right home. I didn’t even order my food,” Levin said with a laugh. “I was overwhelmed.”
Levine had reason to be excited.
It was his first time making a 53-man roster after spending two-and-a-half years on practice squads. The undrafted defensive back out of Tennessee State had spent the last two years on the Green Bay Packers practice squad before signing with the Ravens just before the start of this season.
