RAVENS AGREE TO TERMS WITH DE SPEARS

The Baltimore Ravens have an agreement in principle on a two-year contract with DE Marcus Spears, vice president and general manager Ozzie Newsome announce Friday evening.

“The base of a good defense is to be good along the defensive line,” Newsome stated. “We didn’t play to our standards last season, partly because of injury. With the expected better health of players like Haloti Ngata and Pernell McPhee and the additions of Marcus Spears and Chris Canty, we have a chance to improve. Spears, like Canty, can play multiple positions along the line. He brings a lot of snaps and big game experience to us. We like the way Marcus plays. He will fit in with the Ravens way of playing.”

Originally a first-round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys (20th overall in 2005), Spears has played in 119 games, including 89 starts, collecting 185 tackles (85 solo), 8 sacks, 2 FFs, 1 FR and 9 PD in his eight-year career.

Spears is expected to be in Baltimore in the next three days to take a physical and sign his contract.

we really have only a few big needs going into the draft. LT MLB and both safeties. Not bad. The second wave of free agency is where we really pick up some value players. I can see a sftey and Lb there while we draft a saftey another pass rushing LB and possibly a reciever. Its shaping up well in my opinion.

WOW, Ozzie & Company are some real brave mamajama's. But I am confident in the fact that we have the best front office in the business and we know what we are doing. Come on draft day. Can't wait to see how we build our next dynasty
