Three teams requested to speak with Ravens director of player personnel Eric DeCosta, but he’s not going to meet with anyone.
DeCosta has decided to stay in Baltimore, where he is the G.M. in waiting behind Ozzie Newsome.
“Since this franchise started in 1996, we’ve established a strong history of retaining our most important executives, players, coaches and personnel experts,” Newsome said in a statement. “Eric, who has had opportunities to interview with other teams recently and over the years, is another one we want to keep and will keep. He has chosen to stay with the Ravens, and we’re excited that he will. He is a most valuable asset and will continue to help us win championships.”
There were rumors that DeCosta saw the Bears opening as the most intriguing, but the presence of a head coach already in place could have scared him off.
