Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti confidently told fans on Tuesday that he has “no doubt” that the Ravens will re-sign Haloti Ngata to a longterm extension. “I just have a feeling that things are going to work out,” he said according to Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com. “There’s not doubt in my mind Haloti’s going to be with us. We’re just trying to work out the details.”
Restructuring Ngata, who received the franchise tag this season, is a vital part of the Ravens plan moving forward as it will free up salary cap space as the contract is spaced out over time. Many experts have blamed Ngata’s pricey contract as a reason that the Ravens were unable to grab big name free agents this offseason.
Bisciotti added that he is “having a hard time giving away $60 million, the way this thing is going,” but that he leaves the negotiations up to his general manager, Ozzie Newsome.
