Eight years ago, Ozzie Newsome was profiled in The New York Times. The Ravens general manager, coming off a year in which the team had found franchise quarterback Joe Flacco midway through the first round of the NFL draft, was depicted as “a placid personality in the N.F.L. maelstrom.”
Said former Ravens coach Brian Billick: “Rarely do you have an idea of how Ozzie feels about a player because he’s not going to prejudice it.”
Well, Travis Kelce knows how Newsome felt about him coming out of college. And it’s not how Kelce felt about Newsome.
