The Ravens have reached an agreement on a one-year contract with offensive lineman Ramon Harewood, according to his agent, Damien Butler.
Harewood was a restricted free agent, but the Ravens opted to not tender him at $1.323 million.
The former sixth-round draft pick from Morehouse came to terms with the Ravens minutes before he would have become an unrestricted free agent.
The 6-foot-6, 334-pounder started five games at offensive guard before being replaced by Bobbie Williams. Now, Harewood is hopeful of becoming a starter again.
"Ramon is happy to be back with the Ravens for one more year," Butler told The Baltimore Sun. "He's looking forward to being in the starting lineup the first week. He's looking to working with Juan Castillo and John Harbaugh."
