Although Ogden was already under contract for the next three seasons, both sides agreed this new deal allows the franchise's first ever pick to end his career here and provides the team salary cap room to re-sign players.
"I'm glad to get it done," said Ogden, the No. 4 overall draft pick in 1996, the year the Ravens began playing in Baltimore after moving from Cleveland. "Finally there is no doubt that I will be here until I'm done. This is what I was looking for. I plan to retire as a Raven.
"I'm glad I could get it over with so I don't have to worry about it next year. I can just concentrate on playing and getting my hamstring right, and getting out there to play."
By lessening Ogden's cap number over the next few years, the Ravens have the room to look into re-signing cornerback Gary Baxter, who will be an unrestricted free agent after this season, and running back Jamal Lewis, who is signed through next year.
The team could also look into reworking the contract of linebacker Ray Lewis, whose contract is through 2008, according to NFL Players Association documents. Tight end Todd Heap is another possibility because he has one year left on his contract after the season.
"This is good for everyone else and that includes the entire organization as well as players," said Ogden, who is still expected to miss Sunday's game with a pulled hamstring. "So now they can move on so they can get done what they need to get done."
