Baltimore Ravens discuss Contract Extension with Andrew

Why the Baltimore Ravens Need to Offer a $56 Million Star Contract Extension


Baltimore Ravens, Mark Andrews

The Baltimore Ravens were among the best teams in the NFL the previous season, but if they don’t sign important players to new contracts, their chances of winning the championship could still be dashed. Prior to the 2024 season, tight end Mark Andrews is now the most prominent of them.

Andrews was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of nine after being born in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 1995. In spite of this, he continued to develop into the current NFL player.

After a standout high school career, Andrews attended the University of Oklahoma, where he transitioned from wide receiver to tight end. He had a productive college career, culminating in receiving the John Mackey Award in 2017 as the best tight end in college football. Andrews then declared for the 2018 NFL Draft, where he was selected in the third round by the Baltimore Ravens.

In the NFL, Andrews has established himself as one of the league’s premier tight ends. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl three times (2019, 2021, 2022) and was named a First-Team All-Pro in 2021 after setting the Ravens’ single-season records for receptions and receiving yards by a tight end. Andrews has continued to excel in the NFL, solidifying his status as one of the top tight ends in the league.

Tight End Mark Andrews Named As Baltimore Ravens’ Most Important Contract Extension For Next Season

The Ravens have several guys who are in line for a contract extension soon. In an article posted on Bleacher Report, Ryan Fowler detailed why Andrews is the most important guy to get an extension from Baltimore.

“Although the ascension of Isaiah Likely has been a positive, Mark Andrews will remain Baltimore’s top flex weapon as long as he’s in town.

Length of extension and monetary details become more and more of a question as players age, but locking in Andrews past his 30-year old season should remain a priority for GM Eric DeCosta.

Cap space is an issue in Baltimore in both the present, and future, but locking in Andrews would extend the Ravens’ offensive ceiling in the years to come,” Fowler wrote.

With quarterback Lamar Jackson leading the charge, the Ravens were able to finish last season with a record of 13 wins and four losses. They also fielded fourth place offense and a defense ranked first out of 32 teams in the NFL.

Giving Andrews an extension is essential if Baltimore wants to improve its Super Bowl campaign in the upcoming season and the years to come. If not, Jackson’s prime will be wasted by the team in the very tough AFC division for another year.
