Numerous free agents could have an uneasy wait if there’s a lockout.
Free agency will be postponed until there’s a new collective bargaining agreement, meaning players could have a narrow window to find a team.
Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson, who could be unrestricted under a new CBA, doesn’t seem too worried, however.
He believes there’s mutual interest between he and the Ravens to remain in Baltimore.
“I’m glad I’m in a situation where I’m in a place that I would love to come back to and a team that, from my understanding, would love to have me here,” Wilson said on “The Norris & Davis Show” on 105.7 The Fan Tuesday morning.
“It could go as easy as that.”
Aaron Wilson of National Football Post reported that the Ravens cornerback, who was acquired last season via trade from Seattle, was given a restricted tender and that both sides have had “preliminary” contract talks.
“Hopefully things [the CBA] can get figured out soon and the Ravens and my representation can work this thing out and I don’t have to move an inch,” Wilson said. “I just want things to play themselves out in the nice and easy way. I’d rather not go the hard way.”
Wilson, 25, was an integral part of Baltimore’s secondary in 2010. After serving as a reserve as he tried to learn the defense, Wilson was inserted as a starter in Week 10 and never looked back.
He recorded 36 tackles, three interceptions (including a game-winner in Houston) and a career-high 15 pass deflections during the regular season. Wilson also grabbed one more interception in the playoffs.
