Four years later, Ravens down to four starters from Super Bowl team

It was four years ago today that the Baltimore Ravens sat atop the football world.

On Feb. 3, 2013, the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in New Orleans to win the franchise's second Super Bowl. Joe Flacco threw for three touchdowns, Jacoby Jones returned a kickoff 108 yards for a score and the defense delivered a game-saving fourth-down stand.

The Ravens have a lot of memories from that championship game but not a lot of remaining players. Only nine are currently under contract, including four starters: Flacco, guard Marshal Yanda, linebacker Terrell Suggs and tight end Dennis Pitta.

There are 20 players on other teams, and linebacker Courtney Upshaw is looking for his second Super Bowl ring this Sunday in his first season with the Atlanta Falcons. Nearly half of that Ravens championship team (45 percent) is out of the league.

Here is a look at the Ravens players who remain from the Super Bowl 53-man roster (not including players on injured reserve such as cornerback Lardarius Webb) and the ones who are gone:
