The Ravens have been busy the last two days.

First it was bringing in tight end Owen Daniels. Then, early today, it was bringing in running back Justin Forsett.

Now, the Ravens are once again taking care of their own. The organization announced Friday afternoon that they've re-signed nose tackle Terrence Cody to a one-year deal.

The move is beneficial for both sides. Cody's market was likely low and the Ravens are probably not offering much more than a veteran minimum deal. Plus, he knows the defensive system and should be able to provide a role as a rotation player.

Taken in the second round of the 2010 draft, Cody hasn't quite lived up to the expectations placed upon him. But having him back up Naloti Ngata at nose tackle could allow someone like Brandon Williams to spend more time learning the three-technique spot.
