DeCosta says he’s not leaving Ravens

As plenty of G.M. vacancies emerge on the first day after the 2012 regular season, one of the leading candidates has removed his hat from the ring.

The Ravens have announced that “a number of teams” have contacted the Ravens seeking permission to interview assistant G.M. Eric DeCosta.  They can now stop.

“I love being a part of the Ravens and plan to stay here and help them win championships,” DeCosta said in a statement issued by the Ravens.  “I have no intentions of leaving this team.”

He has no intentions of leaving in part because he has no way to leave.  Last year, DeCosta received G.M. money in exchange for agreeing to a contract that keeps him from departing.

So while it looks good now that DeCosta is choosing to stay with a team that suddenly has more flaws that Keith Richards’ complexion, DeCosta and the Ravens said their vows a year ago.

    Atleast someone is committed to stay here, I guess our defense and our offense is another story

    Glad that one was put to rest early. If anyone remembers Phil Savage and George Kokinis, and the way the Browns overvalued them, they enjoy picking from the Ravens tree. DeCosta is the one the Ravens can’t afford to lose, and eventually Ozzie will leave to leave, or leave for the Alabama athletic director job.

    Have you considered the possibility that maybe, just maybe, he likes where he is, what he does, and what he will do after Ozzie retires?

    Yes a team that crushed the Giants 33-14 last week then rested their starters and almost beat the starters of Cincy this week and have 5 healthy starters in pollard Lewis yanda Boldin and Suggs all Coming back for the playoffs are disfunctional…

    I can think of at least 20 teams right now that would love to be so fraught with “flaws.”

    The ravens will be beaten by the awful colts.

    If Flacco continues to play like he did vs The Giants, The Ravens will have a good chance in the tournament.
