At long last, the contract details of Ravens signee Danny Woodhead have been released, as well as further details regarding Tony Jefferson’s contract as per Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.
Danny Woodhead deal was for three-years, 8.8 million. 4.25 mill guaranteed.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) March 12, 2017
Jefferson's deal was for 4 years, 34 million. Max value of $37 million. Includes $19 million in guaranteed money.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) March 12, 2017
Zrebiec also released information on the cap hits of each deal for this upcoming season. Woodhead will incur a cap hit of $1.75 million, and Jefferson will have a cap hit of $5.5 million. This is in addition to the $6 million owed to Brandon Williams this upcoming season.
Even with the recent releases, the Ravens have used up nearly all of the cap room it has. However, unlike in prior offseasons, the Ravens spent their money on big name free agents at the opening bell of free agency, as opposed to the players leftover from the initial frenzy.
It would be unlikely to see the Ravens make many more additions through free agency, except on very small deals. Ravens’ general manager Ozzie Newsome and his staff will now look to the draft to fill the biggest holes on the Ravens roster: wide receiver, cornerback, pass rusher and offensive line.
