The Baltimore Ravens playoff run last season was pretty damn special.

The Ravens finished the regular season at 10-6 and won the AFC North but it wasn't until the post-season that they really hit their stride.

Buoyed by the return of Ray Lewis' return from a torn triceps, the Ravens marched through the playoffs and beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 for their second Super Bowl, giving their captain a fitting send off for a Hall of Fame career.

But the parade is over, the trip to the White House is done and the ring ceremony is in the past.

After a major roster overhaul during a whirlwind off-season, the 2013 Ravens are going to look very different from the team that hoisted the Lombardi trophy back in February.

Lewis rode off into the sunset, retiring following the Super Bowl victory as did veteran centre Matt Birk. Ed Reed left for Houston in free agency after a decade in Baltimore. Defensive starters Paul Kruger, Cary Williams and Dannell Ellerbe also signed elsewhere. Bernard Pollard was let go to save cap space. No. 1 receiver Anquan Boldin was dealt to the 49ers and full back Vonta Leach is gone too. Even special teams took a hit as vocal leader Brendon Ayanbadejo was released.

It's a new era in Baltimore.
