Arthur Jones signs restricted free agent tender

Defensive end Arthur Jones thinks that the Ravens look like a “dream team in the making,” so it’s not surprising that he decided to assure himself a spot in the locker room.

The Ravens announced Wednesday that Jones has signed his restricted free agent tender well ahead of the April 19 deadline to solicit offers from other teams. There’s no sign that any such offers were coming for Jones, who would have commanded a second-round pick as compensation from any team that wanted to pry him away from Baltimore.

Jones had a strong season for the Ravens in 2012, picking up 4.5 sacks and 47 tackles as part of their defensive line group. The 2010 fifth-round pick, who will make $2.023 million next season, will join Chris Canty, Marcus Spears and Pernell McPhee in the fight for playing time alongside Haloti Ngata up front for Baltimore. It should be a strong group, especially if Jones builds on his 2012 breakout.

The Ravens also announced that linebacker Albert McClellan signed the exclusive rights free agent tender that barred him from signing with anybody else.

    The Ravens will be just like the other 30 teams besides the Redskins who dream of winning Super Bowls while the Redskins are actually winning Super Bowls. HTTR.

    When ever you folks are having a bad day, just log on to a ravens related story on pft. It will likely be good news for the ravens and this sad Deadskins fan called logical voice will make you laugh with the jokes that he posts in the comments section.

    World Champs. Best franchise in the league. The Ravens

    You have to talk about the Redskins when they have nothing going on in the offseason because they sold the house for RGknee!

    Who cares about the redskins, they are a minor league football team when compared to the Ravens. We all know this, including their fans.

    This is Raveator…. “Have you seen my baseball?” I thought you only posted on steelers threads, so what what could possibly know about the Skins with a sub par IQ?
