Finally! What a relief to get this done. Terms are not yet known but the Baltimore Ravens and Ray Lewis have agreed to terms that should keep Lewis in purple and black for the remainder of his career. This is quite a relief after the Ravens lost Bart Scott to the Jets last week.
In other news, as reported in a FanPost here, The Ravens also agreed to terms with former Minnesota Vikings' All Pro veteran center Matt Birk on a two year, $9 million contract, with $6 million guaranteed.
More to follow in the next couple of days but the bottom line is that the Ravens lost Bart Scott and Jason Brown to free agency while keeping Ray Lewis and signing Domonique Foxworth and Matt Birk. I'll take that tradeoff any day, knowing our ability to fill LB openings next to Ray, much less acquring an All-Pro center who'll anchor our young o-line for the next two years while we groom another to take his place down the road.
