BALTIMORE– The Baltimore Ravens have opted not to franchise tag a key member of the team’s defense.

The team opted against tagging LB C.J. Mosley, but hopes to reach an extension with him before March 13, the opening of NFL Free Agency.

Mosley, 26, is a four-time Pro Bowler in his five-year career, and has accumulated over 92 tackles in every season he has played.

He has been extremely durable, missing only three games in five years.

As a centerpiece of Baltimore’s defense, Mosley has proven to be an adept defender against the run and pass.

If he were to reach free agency, Mosley would surely be one of the top players available.
