DeCosta saying put with Ravens

So much for Eric DeCosta being the "in" candidate for a general manager's job this off-season.

The Balitmore Ravens released a statement Friday morning from general manager Ozzie Newsome saying that DeCosta is staying put as his right-hand man as director of player personnel.

"Since this franchise started in 1996, we've established a strong history of retaining our most important executives, players, coaches and personnel experts. Eric, who has had opportunities to interview with other teams recently and over the years, is another one we want to keep and will keep. He has chosen to stay with the Ravens, and we're excited that he will. He is a most valuable asset and will continue to help us win championships," Newsome's statement said.

The Rams, Bears and Colts had all asked permission to interview DeCosta for their vacant general manager openings.
