New Raven Tony Jefferson says this is his most important year

After four seasons as a Cardinal, safety Tony Jefferson switched teams this year and thinks he has a new opportunity to show what he can do.

In a long Baltimore Sun feature, Jefferson explains that he’s a competitor who still wants to prove he’s better than the NFL thought he was when he was undrafted out of Oklahoma in 2013.

“This is my most important year,” he said. “This is where you really make your mark on the league and stamp yourself in a division like this. I’ve got a lot to prove. It’s not pressure, exactly. It’s pressure I like. I can’t wait to put on the pads, honestly.”

Jefferson is looking forward to proving the Ravens made a smart move when they signed him to a four-year, $36 million contract this offseason.

    This guy has chronic neck problems from watching balls go over his head. Watches the quarterback too much and gets sucked into run fakes.

    Is there a PED starter kit that the Ravens give you when you sign the contract? Asking for a friend

    Having a safety from OK and the weak BIG XII would scare me…

    Tony is a very good player, but not a $9m/year player, which is why the Cards let him walk. Best of luck Tony – you are a baller who gets the absolute most out of your natural abilities, and a great locker room presence.

    Beware the player who decides to work hard only in a contract year.
