Ravens and NT Haloti Ngata To Agree On Long-Term Deal After Lockout?

According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, once the lockout lifts, don’t be surprised to see the Ravens and Haloti Ngata shake hands on a long term deal.

Ngata isn’t going anywhere because the Ravens used a franchise tag on him, but it would make sense for both sides to agree to a deal early in free agency because Ngata currently is taking up more than $12 million in cap room.

The Ravens couldn’t sign Ngata to a contract prior to the lockout because the 30 percent rule prevented them from giving him the kind of raise he deserved. They will be able to now, and it will enable them to clear maybe $6 million in cap space and increase their maneuverability in free agency.
