Baltimore Ravens Linebacker Gets Massive Extension

The Baltimore Ravens made one of the biggest moves at the 2022 NFL Trade Deadline, as they send a second and fifth round pick to the Chicago Bears for linebacker Roquan Smith, and now, the two sides have come to an agreement on a massive extension.

That extension will keep Smith with the Ravens for a further five seasons, with a $100 million extension, and given that he's been a crucial part and a leader of this defence, he will be crucial to any future success that this franchise will have.

He becomes the first off-ball linebacker to get $20 million per year in NFL history, and given the performance he's put in alongside Patrick Queen and the rest of this defence, it's certainly been well earned.
