OWINGS MILLS, Md. — After officially completing one-year deals with tight end Owen Daniels and running back Justin Forsett earlier in the day, the Ravens remained busy on Friday by re-signing defensive tackle Terrence Cody.
The 2010 second-round pick agreed to a one-year contract to remain in Baltimore after it looked unlikely that he would return at the start of the free-agent signing period last month. Cody missed four games last season due to a sprained knee, collecting 15 tackles as a part of the defensive line rotation.
“I can be a lot better now that I’m full-go and actually healthy for the first time in a while,” Cody said. “There are going to be a lot of good things this year.”
Originally drafted to be the heir apparent to former Ravens nose tackle Kelly Gregg, Cody never lived up to expectations as he lost his starting job in 2012 after starting all 16 games during the 2011 campaign. In 56 career games, he’s collected 45 tackles while primarily playing the nose tackle position.
With Arthur Jones signing a five-year, $33 million contract with the Indianapolis Colts last month, Cody should have more of an opportunity to compete for playing time in the rotation, but it’s unlikely that he’ll be guaranteed a roster spot after only signing a one-year contract. Younger options such as Brandon Williams, Kapron-Lewis Moore, and DeAngelo Tyson are expected to compete for Jones’ starting spot as the 3-technique defensive tackle.
“That’s basically what the Ravens do,” said Cody about the organizational philosophy. “They put you in a position to have success, and then after being able to have that success, you either get a big deal here or somewhere else. Arthur is one of those guys that had success, and it got him a big deal down in Indy.”
The University of Alabama product is one of only two players selected by the Ravens in the 2010 draft who still remain with the organization with tight end Dennis Pitta being the other.
