He has went so far to say that the decision is not up to him. He just played the final game of his rookie deal that saw him make $615,00 during the 2012 campaign.
"I just have to let it happen and let my agent do his job. I would love to be here, but it's not up to me," said Kruger. "I've never been through the process before."
If he reaches free agency, he is expected to command a long-term deal worth $35-40 million. He is coming off of a 13.5 sack season, including the postseason.
The Ravens may not have the money to keep him if they reach a long-term deal with Flacco in the neighborhood of $20 million per season.
