The Ravens have been busy on Tuesday. Along with signing rookie fifth-rounder Asa Jackson and veteran free-agent Jacoby Jones, the team has extended the contract of safety Bernard Pollard by three years.
The Ravens announced the move on Tuesday evening. Pollard is now under contract through 2015.
“Bernard showed last year that he is a Raven,” G.M. Ozzie Newsome said. “He’s smart, tough and brings a passion to the games, our practices and in the weight room. His physical presence on the back end is very important to the way we play defense. He has indicated since the first day he stepped into our building last training camp that he wanted to be a Raven for the long haul.”
And so the player who recently said that football may not exist in 20-30 years will spend four more years with the Ravens — unless the Ravens decide before then to move on.
