These last 4 years have had a huge impact on my life. Thank you Steve Biscotti, Ozzie Newsome and Coach Harbaugh for taking a chance on a fullback from Harvard. Special thank you to Steve, Marty, Andy and Thomas and everyone else in the building who personally had a hand in my development. I'm thankful for Ravens fans being so good to me and for all the lifelong relationships I have developed in Baltimore. My experience as a Raven will forever be apart of me and I'm a better football player and person because of it. Thank you Baltimore!
Juszczyk signed the largest-ever NFL contract for a fullback, inking a 4-year, $21 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
