Pryce increases chances of staying, takes pay cut

Ravens defensive end Trevor Pryce helped his chances of staying with the Ravens, taking a major pay cut this season, according to the NFL Players Association.

Pryce, 34, agreed to reduce his salary from $4.5 million to $2 million in 2010, the final year of his contract. There was speculation that the Ravens were considering releasing Pryce after the draft if they added another defensive lineman because his original salary was expensive for a backup.

He made $4 million last season, when he was replaced in the starting lineup by Dwan Edwards just six games into the season. Pryce will likely rotate this season with Cory Redding, who was signed last month as a free agent.

Still, Pryce led the Ravens with 6 1/2 sacks. He has had 26 sacks in four seasons with the Ravens. Pryce had played his first nine seasons with the Denver Broncos before signing with the Ravens as a free agent in 2006.
