Ozzie Newsome says he won’t be retiring if Ravens win it all


Ray Lewis and Matt Birk aren’t the only members of the Ravens organization about which speculation is swirling regarding a possible Super Bowl win followed by a retirement.  With Ravens director of player personnel Eric DeCosta signing a contract that reportedly pays him like a G.M., some wonder whether G.M. Ozzie Newsome will be calling it quits if the Ravens win it all.

Newsome, 55, says it isn’t so.

Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun reports that Newsome was “very adamant” about the matter on Saturday, saying that he plans to remain with the Ravens — and that he has no timetable for leaving.

Similar speculation arose in 2009, with the Newsome telling Preston that the Hall-of-Fame-tight-end-turned-G.M. wouldn’t be leaving to become the A.D. at Alabama, only two months after Newsome mused about eventually “coming home.”

    The guy is 55 years old and one of the best personnel guys in the NFL. Why would he retire? To do what? Work in a slaughterhouse?

    @7lombardiblablabal – no he doesn’t have 6 rings, but then neither do you. and unlike you, he has a real job, makes millions of dollars and has a real purpose in life other than living in his mommy’s basement.

    Where’s your ring this year? Biggest fool of PFT comes out of hiding. Go back.

    Hey 7lombardi, your team was swept and tebow’d end of story. Come back next year when your GM dismantles your entire defense.

    I sure hope we win but I don’t even want to think about the possibility of Ray Lewis retiring.

    I’m proud of Ozzie & Jerry Reese..keep setting a great example to the NFL as long as you can cause the league is starting to go back to its old habit of hiring imbalance. Yeah I said it !!!!!!!!

    i’d love to see ozzie be the athelitic director at alabama before he retires. if not that,maybe he can be the tight end and wr coach there.

    wow this is a waste of time as they will not win today. Giants patriots rematch. Eli will do what peyton couldn’t beat the pats twice in big games. Harbaugh bowl game will be the pro bowl

    Ozzie is one of the very best talent evaluators in the league. He’s done an excellent job there in Baltimore. Although I seriously dislike blowhards with big mouths like Suggs & Lewis….. I also respect that they are great players and give tremendous credit to Ozzie for continuously assembling a strong team.
