Ozzie Newsome must not be on Twitter.
The Ravens general manager was asked at the NFL Combine if he would consider Peyton manning when he became available and according to Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com, “Newsome just laughed.”
Much like I did when I saw Ravens fan’s reactions on Twitter.
“Joe’s under contract for a year and we’ve already gone on record to say Joe Flacco will be our quarterback. If he does get hurt then we like Tyrod Taylor,” Newsome told Downing.
As Matt Lund and I mentioned on the BSR Podcast, just about every GM in the NFL will certainly pick up the phone and find out what it will take to bring Manning to their city. I would even expect Newsome to do so, but he knows the answer and the Ravens are confident in the direction of their team with Joe Flacco under center.
