OWINGS MILLS — The structure of the Ravens organization has been critical to this year and the future, team leaders said this week.
“It’s everybody throughout the whole organization is interwoven together and to me that’s the key to any success we have,” John Harbaugh said at the season ending press conference in Owings Mills.
The Baltimore Ravens Championship season is over, and all eyes are on the future. A deal for Super Bowl MVP quarterback Joe Flacco, who could receive the franchise tag, is a priority but some changes are imminent.
“We are not going to be restructuring contracts to be able to do all of those different things to be able to maintain this team just to make another run, we are not doing that,” Newsome said. “That doesn’t mean we don’t want to go and try to repeat.”
Team management will take a trip to Florida and discuss players and contracts. One thing is clear, this season’s success will mean nothing next year.
“We were the champions, the 2012 NFL champions were the Baltimore Ravens,” Harbaugh said. “Next year’s champion depends on who plays the best, who handles adversity the best, and who comes out on top. We’ll fight for that championship we’ll fight that just like we fought for the last one.”
