Working out and eating healthy consistently does pay off – well it did for Brendon Ayanbadejo.
The three-time Pro Bowl special teams ace has agreed to remain in Baltimore for another three seasons.
Ayanbadejo, will be 36-years young when the Ravens play their first regular season game but given the way he has maintained his physique, he certainly has extended his career.
Even though Ayanbadejo has made an impact on special teams, he hasn’t routinely contributed on the defensive side of the ball throughout his career. Retaining a player of his age and lack of impact on one of the major sides of the ball isn’t commonly heard of, much less, giving them an extended career. This is all a testament to treating your body like a temple.
This move should bode well for the Ravens because they need someone with veteran leadership to help captain their abysmal special teams unit. While not on the field, BA continues to entertain fans with pictures on his Instagram account of his French Bulldogs and son, Amadeus Prime.
Joining Ayanbadejo on special teams will be former Bears Pro Bowler, Corey Graham who signed with the Ravens earlier today. Graham is a very consistent performer and is ranked third in the NFL in special teams tackles since 2007. He should also help the Ravens at nickel, replacing Chris Carr who was cut by the team on March 3.
Welcome back Brendon.
It’s as if you never left!
