Terrence Cody can most be remembered for the vicious hit he put on Jamaal Charles in the 2011 playoff game against the Chiefs making Charles fumble and giving the Ravens the ball back. He is probably second best known for still being able to beat Rich Eisen in the 40 yard dash.

Last year saw Cody play as a rotational player on a pretty stacked defensive line. Playing in 12 games last season, Cody notched only 15 tackles and has been frequently pushed out of plays by offensive lineman during his career. Questions around his weight have always lingered and had failed his conditioning test during the 2010 training camp.

Cody's highlight year seems to have come in 2011 when he started all 16 games and even had a pass deflection. However stats are something you typically don't see of a nose tackle as they are used to eat up space and close down the inside runs. Resigning Cody would not be an ideal situation but the Ravens familiarity with him, his low cost and undoubtedly some hope that he can be a force in the middle could lead him to wear purple and black again next season on a short term contract as rotational depth.
