Ngata not playing to the level of his contract

Ngata sidelines

Haloti Ngata signed a five-year, $61 million deal in 2011 and hasn’t been the same since. Last season, I excused his performance because it was quietly reported that Ngata was playing with nagging injuries — and some have reported that his knees and shoulders have contributed to his disappointing season this year.

In Sunday’s game against the Broncos, Ngata didn’t even record a solo tackle. He had one assist, finishing behind Terrence Cody who had a tackle and two assists.

105.7 The Fan’s Vinny Cerrato reported way back in July that Ngata looked out of shape and predicted that he would be the Baltimore Ravens‘ biggest disappointment this season. He probably didn’t see Joe Flacco’s collapse coming, however Ngata certainly hasn’t performed up to the expectations of his contract.

That seems to be the trend of the season here in Baltimore.

One Rave about “Ngata not playing to the level of his contract

    Zach,

    I am not sure if you pay attention to what happens on the field as you watch the games based on your post. Sure Haloti has some injuries that has affected his level of play however I guess you missed him running down RG3 two weeks ago?

    Really you choose to pick on Ngata’s level of play? Come on now….. This coming from the person the wrote this post earlier in the season … “Flacco outperforms Brady, again elicits “Elite” label from John Harbaugh” ??

    Case Closed!
