BALTIMORE (AP) -Jonathan Ogden didn't say Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was the final one of his career. He merely acted that way.
After the victory over Pittsburgh, the 11-time Pro Bowler brought his family out on the field to share one enduring memory in the event he never suits up again.
``I just made sure that if this was my last game I got a chance to bring my son down on the field, get a picture on the field with him just in case, so he'll have something to remember,'' Ogden said. ``I was glad I was able to do that.''
Ogden, 33, was the very first draft pick of the Ravens after they moved from Cleveland before the 1996 season. He became a starter as a rookie and except for injury, has been a fixture at left tackle.
When asked what he was thinking during the game, Ogden replied that he couldn't help but gaze around the stadium during a stoppage in play.
``I was thinking this might be the last time looking around, kind of enjoy it. I might have been smiling a little more than normal on the field,'' he said. ``It's been a pleasure playing for this city, this team, these fans. This city and me, we've grown together with this team. So I'm just grateful to have been a part of it.''
