The Ravens wrapped up their Friday with the announcement that the organization re-signed unrestricted free agent Terrence Cody to a one-year deal.
In what could be strictly called a “depth” move for a Ravens, Cody will have a chance to show team officials they made the right choice in bringing back the former Alabama player.
The Ravens selected Cody in the second round of the 2010 draft with the consensus that he would have a direct impact on their defensive line. Four years later they are still waiting and if Cody fails to show any progress in 2014 the Ravens are likely to end the experiment.
“I can be a lot better now that I’m full-to-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.”
In four years with the purple and black, Cody has appeared in 56 games (while starting 21, including 16 in the 2011). In 2013, Cody appeared in 12 games, recording 15 total tackles in 240 snaps and had a PFF rating of -5.0.
Still, Cody is glad to be back with the Ravens even though he wasn’t sure if he would be retained.
“Just happy to be back and to continue my career with the Baltimore Ravens,” he said. “It was crazy. It was just a big waiting game. But we got the job done, got the deal done, and now I’m back with the Ravens.”
