Matt Birk Back With Baltimore Ravens

Amid speculation that he was to retire, Baltimore Ravens center has chosen to return to the team on a new three year deal.

Birk is widely acknowledged as one of the best centers the NFL has produced in the past decade and was given the Walter Peyton Man of the Year Award in 2011 for his tireless work both on and off the field.

This hire is an important one for the Ravens after losing guard Ben Grubbs to the New Orleans Saints earlier this week.
