Ravens, Ricky Williams agree to deal

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to terms with veteran running back Ricky Williams.

The Ravens announced the deal on Monday, pending Williams passing a physical Tuesday.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the deal is a two-year contract "worth up to $4 million."

Williams played for the Miami Dolphins last season. The 34-year-old split time with Ronnie Brown in Miami and averaged 4.2 yards per carry. He rushed for 673 yards and scored two touchdowns.

With the Ravens, Williams will play behind starter Ray Rice.

Williams has rushed for 9,569 career yards and 68 touchdowns, recording 325 receptions for 2,523 yards and eight touchdowns.

CBSSports.com's Will Brinson says it's a great signing by the Ravens.

"Adding Williams gives them a perfect power complement to the elusive (but also strong) Rice out of the backfield," he says. "With Leach blocking and Williams giving Baltimore a different speed out of the backfield, don't be shocked if the Ravens running game is once again impressive in 2011."
