McGahee’s not going anywhere…for now

February 18, 2010

A question in the offseason for the Baltimore Ravens on running back Willis McGahee was whether or not he would keep the color purple in his closet.

As of right now, the Ravens fully intend on keeping him around. This past 2009 season, McGahee was reverted to being secondary running back behind well-known star running back Ray Rice.

This position on the Ravens was a possible reason for Mcgahee possibly on the lookout for another team where he could be the feature RB, plus his want for more money than his $3.4 million for the 2010 season if he stayed with Baltimore.

McGahee, though second to Rice, was a key player for Baltimore this season, especially in the red zone. He scored 12 touchdowns and averaged about five yards per carry…not too bad for a secondary RB.

Other news on other unknown futures like safety Ed Reed are still up in the air for now but sources say they are sure he will return, as well as the re-signing of wide receiver unrestricted free agents Derrick Mason and Kelley Washington.

 Baltimore signed wide receiver Donte Stallworth on Wednesday to help in the WR department, and could possibly still look for new players on offense to help quarterback Joe Flacco lead the team to another postseason in the 2010 season.

Watch some of Willis McGahee’s highlight from the 2009 season:
