According to a report from ESPN.com, Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata signed his one-year franchise tender for $12.5 million on Wednesday. The Ravens placed the franchise tag on Ngata at the beginning of February and hope to eventually work out a long-term deal with their former first-round pick.
Ngata started 15 of 16 games for the Ravens in 2010–recording 63 tackles to go along with 5.5 sacks and five passes defensed. He played a key role in helping Baltimore reach their third-straight postseason. While the Ravens intend to sign Ngata for the long run, they may have to wait until there’s a new Collective Bargaining Agreement since teams won’t be able to negotiate contracts with their players.
