The Ravens made a huge deal today. Baltimore and Ozzie Newsome came into the offseason with the goal of resigning DT Brandon Williams, who has become a dominant DT in the NFL. The deal is for 5 years, $54 million, with $27.5 million guaranteed money. Williams had a reported twelve suitors, and for a while it seemed like he would not land back in Baltimore.
Yesterday and today, however, reports started circulating that Williams and the Ravens were working together to come to a deal that worked for both sides. Williams wanted to stay in Baltimore, but also wanted to get a fair pay day. This mega deal checks out on both those things. He gets to stay in the system that works for him, and gets a huge pay day. Congratulations to both Williams and the Ravens. Now all Ravens fans can sleep tight tonight.
