CJ Mosley Signs With Ravens

Posted: Updated:

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have signed first-round draft choice C.J. Mosley, an All-America linebacker from Alabama, to a four-year deal.
 
The 6’2?, 235-pound Mosley was selected 17th overall by the Ravens after winning the Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker. He won two national championships with the Crimson Tide.
 
A versatile playmaker, Mosley made 320 tackles (174 solo), 6 1/2 sacks, had five interceptions — three returned for touchdowns  — two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 51 career games (29 starts). He is third on Alabama’s career tackles list.
 
Mosley is liked to start at inside linebacker in Baltimore’s 3-4 defense, although the Ravens drafted Arthur Brown in the second round last year for that position.
 
After he was selected, Mosley noted that he’s been a Ravens fans for years.
 
“I feel great about it,” Mosley said of landing in Baltimore. “Growing up I was a Ravens fan because of Ray Lewis, my favorite linebacker. I got to meet him this past summer going into my senior year. He gave me a lot of insight. So I’m excited to add to that tradition.”
