Report: Colts want to interview Ravens' DeCosta for GM job

Report: Colts want to interview Ravens' DeCosta for GM job

The Colts want to interview Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta for their vacant general manager position, according to Albert Breer of MMQB.com. It was unclear as of Tuesday whether DeCosta would have interest in pursuing the Colts job. He has declined numerous opportunities to interview with NFL teams in the past, content to remain in Baltimore as the successor-in-waiting to general manager Ozzie Newsome. DeCosta has been with the Ravens since 1996.

However, the Colts job could have appeal to DeCosta that previous jobs have not. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was a defensive coordinator with the Ravens. Meanwhile, the presence of Colts quarterback Andrew Luck makes their general manager vacancy an attractive one. There is no need to worry about finding a franchise quarterback in Indianapolis. A general manager who can put the right pieces around Luck can build a contender very quickly.

The Colts fired general manager Ryan Grigson earlier this month, and their interview list reportedly includes Chiefs director of football operations Chris Ballard; the Seahawks’ co-player personnel duo of Scott Fitterer and Trent Kirchner; Vikings assistant general manager George Paton; Colts interim general manager Jimmy Raye; and Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf. Adding DeCosta to that list would give Colts owner Jim Irsay another strong candidate to choose from.

Ravens' left guard Bradley Bozeman dominates 72-ounce steak challenge

Baltimore Ravens’ starting left guard Bradley Bozeman showed off one of his many talents earlier this week as he dominated a 72-ounce steak dinner. 

Bozeman accomplished this feat at The Big Texan Steak Ranch while traveling with his wife. The restaurant is famous for this eating challenge, which involves eating over 4 pounds of steak, shrimp cocktail, baked potato, salad topped off with a butter roll in under an hour. 

Although Bozeman is an absolute unit of a person, this was still no small feat. Bozeman strategized during the meal in order to ensure success as he switched from steak sauce to honey. Yet, Bozeman still questioned his ability to successfully finish with just 2 ounces of steak left. He even instructed his wife who was filming in the audience to shut the camera off in fear of getting sick on camera.

“I knew it was going to be tough, but I didn’t think it was going to be that tough,” Bozeman told ESPN. “The last bite was rough.”

Bozeman pushed on and not only finished the steak, but even had a little carrot cake for dessert. His prize? Free dinner, a t-shirt, and most likely a massive stomach ache. 

Despite his claim that this was “the toughest food thing” he’s ever done, Bozeman flashed a big smile holding the prized shirt which read “I ate it all!”

Bozeman is now one of only approximately 10,000 people who have successfully finished the meal, with over 110,000 people having tried.
