The next mega contract handed out in the NFL could be for Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata.
Contract talks are “getting closer,” Ngata told the Baltimore Sun. “We’re just a few dollars apart.”
Sunday’s performance was the best argument possible for Ngata. He had four tackles, tipped two passes, forced a fumble and recovered another. He was involved in three turnovers. He gets double teamed every snap and it just didn’t matter.
His agent should just show this play during negotiations.
“I thought it was dominant, to borrow a phrase,” said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh of Ngata’s performance.
Ngata is Baltimore’s franchise player. They have until September 20th to sign him to a long-term deal.
