OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens have reached an agreement with veteran offensive lineman Jake Long on a one-year contract, pending the condition of his oft-injured right knee.

Long played in four Pro Bowls after being selected by Miami as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2008 draft.

But he played sparingly in just four games with Atlanta last year after tearing his right ACL in back-to-back seasons.

The contract won’t be official until the Ravens receive more information on Long’s knee. He will visit Dr. James Andrews to receive an assessment of the knee, coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday.

The Ravens are willing to sign the 31-year-old Long if they’re not on the hook to pay him for the entire season if he’s forced out with another knee injury.



Baltimore has been looking for another tackle since releasing Eugene Monroe last month.
