Haloti Ngata DL BAL 25 Days1 Comment

The Ravens are considering moving Haloti Ngata to defensive end.

The move would allow the Ravens to start Brandon Williams at nose tackle, with Ngata replacing Arthur Jones opposite Chris Canty. After playing through multiple injuries the last two seasons, Ngata could benefit from the switch to end. 30-year-old Ngata is scheduled to count $16 million against the cap in 2014 and remains a candidate to restructure.

The Baltimore Sun reports contract talks with NT Haloti Ngata went nowhere for the Ravens.

Ngata is scheduled to count a team-high $16 million against the 2014 salary cap and has two years left on his deal. The Ravens would ideally like to extend him like they did with Terrell Suggs in order to create space so they can re-sign free agents like Dennis Pitta, LT Eugene Monroe, and ILB Daryl Smith. Ngata just turned 30 years old and isn't going anywhere.

Ravens NT Haloti Ngata is scheduled to count a team-high $16 million against the 2014 salary cap.

Ngata has two years left on his five-year, $61 million deal and is a prime candidate for an extension in order to lower that astronomical cap hit. The 30-year-old didn't put up the sack numbers we'd grown accustomed to seeing the previous three seasons, but Ngata still graded out as a top-eight run defender in Pro Football Focus' end-of-season defensive tackle ratings.

Ngata was inactive for Week 11, allowing Matt Forte to peel off 125 total yards and a touchdown against Baltimore while averaging 4.6 yards per carry. If Ngata does not play this week, it would be a matchup boost for Chris Ivory. We don't expect to know Ngata's availability before Sunday morning's inactives.
