Fourth-and-29, no problem.
Adam Schefter is reporting that the Ravens have reached a deal with their franchised running back. Ray Rice is believed to have signed a five-year, $40 million contract. A deal very similar to what Arain Foster and Matt Forte reached this offseason (Forte just earlier today).
The deal came down to the wire, finishing just minutes before the deadline. Very much how the Haloti Ngata deal was reached a few short years back. Ozzie Newsome, the Wizard of Oz, doin’ work.
We can rest easy, Baltimore, Ray Rice will be residing in Charm City for some time.
In today’s Ravens-Bengals tilt Ray Rice had a whale of a game rushing for 191 yards and 2 touchdowns. That performance overshadowed another remarkable event. If you blinked, you might have missed Ray’s backup, Ricky Williams, becoming the 26th player to rush for 10,000 yards. The quietest 10,000 yards in NFL history.
Ray Rice es el hombre.
How could you go to Mexico and not come back with a pancho and a sombrero?
