Ravens Re-Sign Terrence Cody

Cody Kicks

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.”

2 Raves on “Ravens Re-Sign Terrence Cody

  1. Scott on said:

    A lot of folks were bashing this move on twitter yesterday. But I’m sure Ozzie got Cody at a clearance sale price. Plus our coaches know his potential better than anyone. Sometimes DLs can take years to develop — remember our former 2nd round pick DL Dwan Edwards? He looked like a bust until his fourth season when he finally became a valuable rotational player. Then he signed a big contract in free agency. We knew Cody would need a lot of work when we drafted him, and there’s still a chance he can be productive. We can always use depth and competition at the position.

      Good point about Edwards but this does not often happens. I am meh on Cody I was hoping for an upgrade.I guess you can say he has been a good example off the field so maybe he can be a good role model for Rolando if and when he gets here.They were pretty tight at Bama.
