Odafe Oweh Signs Rookie Contract With Baltimore Ravens

Former Penn State football defensive end Odafe Oweh has inked his NFL rookie contract with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Friday morning.

While the official terms of the contract have yet to be released, the deal is expected to be worth $11,342,412 over four years, according to Over the Cap.

The Ravens selected Oweh in the first round with the No. 31 overall pick in this year’s draft after his three-year career in Happy Valley. Last month, the Ravens announced Oweh will wear No. 99 in the NFL after rocking No. 28 with the Nittany Lions.

While at Penn State, Oweh totaled 63 tackles, 13.5 for a loss, and seven sacks. Additionally, he earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the conference’s coaches and second-team honors from the media following the 2020 season.

Oweh formerly went by his middle name, Jayson, at Penn State, and he’s now trying to make a name for himself early on in his career with the Ravens during OTAs.

“That’s probably what I’ve learned the most with the Ravens organization – that they pride themselves on trying to perfect your craft, and I’m doing that every single practice, every single second of practice,” Oweh said in a release. “Outside of practice, I’m in here early, and we leave late. So, that’s probably what I’ve learned the most.”

Penn State’s other 2021 first-round pick, Micah Parsons, signed his rookie contract with the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday.
