Matt Birk not at a stage to make decision about retirement

Fifteen-year center said he's not making a decision until he has to

Like Ed Reed, Matt Birk has a decision to make about his future with the Ravens. And like the free safety, the 15-year center declined to say whether he envisioned playing out the final two years of his contract.

“I don’t know,” he said. “I’m worried about what I’m going to eat at dinner tonight. I don’t make any decision until I have to. That’s my motto.”

Birk, 36, made his 113th consecutive start in Sunday’s 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard playoff round. It’s the longest streak among centers currently playing in the NFL.
