Former Baltimore Ravens Superstar Is Coming Out Of Retirement After Taking A Year Off From The NFL

Former Baltimore Ravens safety Tony Jefferson is looking to come out of retirement and return to the field in 2024 after taking a year off from football. 

According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz, the defensive back has plans to suit up for an NFL team next season. Schultz notes that the former Oklahoma standout has kept himself in shape and is keen on speaking to teams after a year as a scouting intern for the Ravens.

“Jefferson has stayed in shape, has been training, and wants to play again,” Schultz reports. “He intends to start talking to teams in the near future after spending last season with Baltimore as a scouting intern.”

Jefferson, a Freshman All-American and Big 12 Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2010, went undrafted in 2013. He started out with the Arizona Cardinals in 2013 before signing a four-year deal worth $34 million with the Ravens.

“Had a year off & it has my body feeling amazing, all the while i kept myself heavily attached in the game- by scouting w ravens,” he is reported as having told MLFootball. “During the season last year I couldn’t sleep sometimes because I wanted to comeback so bad. Now I’m here ready to rock n roll.”

Tony Jefferson Had A Solid Career In The NFL

Tony Jefferson registered 174 tackles, 12 pass breakups, 4.5 sacks, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles in 39 games with the AFC outfit.

He had stints with the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants before announcing his retirement last May.

The 32-year-old has made 492 tackles, 24 pass breakups, 9.5 sacks, and four interceptions over the course of his career. He’s intent on landing a deal with an NFL team before training camp kicks off.

Still, he hasn’t played a single snap since the 2022 season. So we can’t be sure what the market will look like for him.
