Last night, the Baltimore Ravens announced their first rookie signing agreeing in principle with nose tackle Terrence Cody to a 3-year deal.

Cody was the Ravens second overall pick in the 2010 draft, coming after Sergio Kindle who’s start with Baltimore continues to remain up in the air.  

The Ravens have been pleased early with Cody’s quickness, despite his weight, and are hoping that he will solidify their running stopping on the defensive line.

Director of college scouting Joe Hortiz told the Baltimore Sun that “Cody is a prototypical run-stopper who fits what we do in Baltimore.” “He does a good job playing two gaps with that ability to take on blockers and help shut down running games.”
