According to the Las Vegas Review Journal
, Jonathan Ogden has not officially retired, but says that “the Ravens know to proceed with their offseason plans as if I’m retiring. So if I come back, it’s great, they said, but they’re proceeding as if I am not.”
Ogden also say’s that he is “leaning toward retiring,” because he is a perfectionist out on the football field and it irritates him because he can not play at the level he’s accustomed to playing.
“I do not want to play if I can’t play at the level I’m capable of playing at,” he said.
My gut is even more solid now that J.O. is done and is hanging it up. I was convinced once the Ravens parted ways with Mike Flynn. If you notice in the article J.O. never refers to the Ravens as we, he refers to them as “they.”
I just think that he is hanging it up.
So does this make you feel one way or the other that he is done?
