Former Raven Matt Birk gives Gino Gradkowski a vote of confidence

Matt Birk spent a year mentoring Gino Gradkowski. Then he spent a year watching him, and Gino was excited to learn from such a great player.

After Gradkowski’s up-and-down 2013 season replacing Birk as the Ravens’ starting center, the elder statesman is as convinced as ever that Gradkowski is still the long-term solution despite media and fan chatter that the Ravens need a change.

“He is the guy, no question,” said Birk, who was back in Baltimore Thursday to promote his new book, “All-Pro Wisdom: The 7 Choices That Lead to Greatness.”

“It’s a process. It’s a journey. I think the best thing Gino has going for him is his attitude and his character. That comes through when you’re playing football. As a Ravens fan myself, I don’t worry about Gino.”

I am sure many people doubted Matt Birk’s abilities as well but he had a Hall of Fame career, and it is a pretty huge vote of confidence for our former Diamond in the Rough Gradkowski.  I believe Gino is a very special player and I would not be surprised if he has a great season.
