Report: CJ Mosley prefers to stay with Ravens
Free agent linebacker CJ Mosley’s reported preference would be to return to the Baltimore Ravens despite interest from other teams.
The Ravens’ defense will look quite different than it did in 2018. Eric Weddle was released. Franchise mainstay Terrell Suggs has departed for an opportunity with the Arizona Cardinals. Mosley leaving would represent another key departure. That’s not something he wants to happen, according to a report from The Athletic’s Connor Hughes.

The Ravens have reportedly increased their offer in an effort to not lose the 26-year old.
Ravens want to keep Mosley, and have sweetened their offer in process, but sources say there is still a gap in their offer and what the Jets and possibly other teams are offering.

The Ravens are entering a new era with Eric DeCosta taking over GM duties from Ozzie Newsome. Baltimore typically operates under the “right player, right price” mantra. We will likely find out soon what the price is to keep Mosley, who had 105 tackles last season.
