Ravens | Debt Revealed
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports, for the first time, Ravens owner Art Modell admitted the extent of his team's debt. He told the Washington Post it amounted to $180 million. Modell's debt might impair the team's ability to re-sign two of its key players who become free agents next year, defensive end Mike McCrary and guard Jeff Blackshear. McCrary is asking for a new six-year, $42 million deal, which would make him the league's highest-paid end. Blackshear is looking for about $20 million over five-years. The Ravens fear that one or both players could wind up in Cleveland if they test the open market next year.
