After the Baltimore Ravens restructured the contract of Terrell Suggs, the team sought to tighten up their defense even more and offered defensive tackle Haloti Ngata a new long-term contract as well.
Ngata will carry a $16 million cap hit in the upcoming season, and the Ravens had hoped long-term money would be enough to convince Ngata to restructure his albatross of a deal, but that won't be the case. At least not right now.
According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, Ngata rejected the Ravens "lucrative" offer.
Of course, right now there's little reason for the 30-year-old to take such a proposal. He still has two years remaining on his current deal, and given that he'll be 32 when his current contract expires, he'll still be in position to secure a hefty deal. For now, it appears the Ravens have moved on from working on a new deal with Ngata, as Breer suggested Baltimore is now looking to renegotiate deals with other current players.
