C.J. Mosley “ready to work” while waiting for new contract

Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley is heading into the final year of his rookie deal and said in January that he would like to remain in Baltimore for as long as possible, but the team spent the offseason checking boxes other than a Mosley extension.

That didn’t keep Mosley from working with the team throughout all phases of the offseason program and he didn’t change course when it came to reporting to training camp. Mosley is on the field and leading the defense while it adjusts to new coordinator Don Martindale.

“No updates so far,” Mosley said, via the Baltimore Sun. “My answer is still the same as at OTAs. I got here yesterday and I’m here today, ready to work. That’s what it’s all about. Whether something works out or not, I still have an obligation to be the guy in the middle who’s going to make the plays and make the calls.”

Mosley has been a durable and productive member of the defense throughout his four years in Baltimore, but has only been on one playoff team in that span. He said Thursday that he knows the reality in the NFL is that “you get replaced” if you don’t win games. Whatever the final record, dumping Mosley seems unlikely as long as he continues on his current course but it is a reminder that more winning would be welcome in Baltimore this year.

  1. LOL

    Still in a raging cap hell signing FAs that no one wants, instead of paying their own. Ironically, he’s been Ozzie’ best draft pick in the past 5 years and he’s still overrated.

    Bro, do you even football? LOL

    Overrated? One of the most dynamic linebackers outside of Luke Kuechly in the past four years. I can post side by side stats with Hightower again if you really need proof….

  3. Does anyone honestly think they have no plan to get this done? Of course they do. He’s a 3x pro bowl, all-pro MLB. It’ll get done.

    LMAO

    “most dynamic”?…LOL!! This is what I mean right here. The guy can’t hold HIghtower’s jock in the conference.

    He’s next tier down. Good players, but nowwhere near a 2 time SB winning player who is the backbone of the Pats D down the middle.

    Preposterous.

    This is why you dopey fans find yourselves in cap hells. You over-value your own players on the market, due to awful drafting, so the player ends up getting the leverage, with an eventual overpayment.

    Get it?

    LMAO

    He is nowhere near All Pro level. This is hilarious. Being some kind of a Pro Bowl sub, especially in this day and age, means very little. It means he’s good. That’s it.

    He’s not a Kahlil Mack or a Von Miller on the edge, and he can’t hold Hightower’s jock as a MLB in the conference. Stop already.

    Your defenses have blown in recent years.
