McGahee is reportedly scheduled to make $6 million next season after a second-straight year as Ray Rice’s backup and Rosenhaus insinuated that his client isn’t willing to accept anything less.
“We don’t expect to be back unless they’ll pay him his contract,” Rosenhaus said on Sports Xtra in Miami Sunday night.
There has been media speculation, including from the Baltimore Sun and CSNBaltimore.com, that the Ravens would rather cut ties with McGahee than pay him his full salary.
Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh recently said at the NFL Scouting Combine that the team won’t make a decision on McGahee until there’s a new collective bargaining agreement and an understanding of what the salary cap is.
McGahee is coming off career-lows in carries (100), rushing yards (380), receptions (14) and touchdowns (five). But Harbaugh still values the bruising veteran.
“Willis McGahee can play,” Harbaugh said. “I really like him a lot. I think he’s a good person, a hard worker. He’s a leader on our team. I’m a big fan of Willis McGahee. I have my fingers crossed for a lot of guys, and he’d be one of them.”
