When Pernell McPhee thinks about next season, he only imagines playing for the Ravens.
The free agency is approaching and McPhee has not signed a contract for 2021. He knows that the crows have to make important decisions from the outside defender, and Matthew Judon, Yannick Ngakue, Tus Bowser and Jihad Ward will also be free agents.
Still, when the adventures and adventures are over, McPhee plans to return to Baltimore. At this point, he does not allow himself to consider another result. He left the Ravens during the free agency in 201
“Of course, the plan is to go back to Baltimore and continue to play some ball, help win the championship and build a dynasty,” McPhee said. “That’s the goal. My agent and I haven’t talked about it yet. I’ve been cooling off, taking care of my body. I’ll think about things, but my thoughts are actually coming back.”
With five Ravens outside the linebacks set to hit the free agency, there could be a big turnaround in the position. McPhee is realistic about the situation, but does not like to think about losing teammates in his position, which he respects.
“I hope the crows can keep them, but the free agency can go crazy, unpredictable,” McPhee said. “But one thing you need to understand. When you play with guys who have been in the organization and who understand your system, it matters. You want to keep these guys because they know how to play like a raven. I always think it’s important to keep the main boys – like Juden. He was around Sizz (Terrell Suggs), he was around me last year. He knows the ways of the crows. You have to keep some of these inner boys, those in domestic dogs. “
The 32-year-old McPhee proved that he has a lot left last season, ending with the most fights (34) and the most quarterback hits (15) he has had since 2015, when he was at the Chicago Bears. He didn’t wear out as the season progressed and had some of his best performances in the playoffs. McPhee was a huge part of the Ravens, who filled a 2,000-yard bottle of Derrick Henry in Tennessee and got fired in losing the playoffs until the end of the season against the Buffalo Bills.
