Former Colts LB Justin Houston signs with Ravens
Outside linebacker Justin Houston and the Baltimore Ravens agreed to a one-year, $ 4 million contract on Saturday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Houston has reportedly refused more money to other teams to pursue a championship with the Ravens.
Baltimore’s pass rush has been one of his biggest concerns this offseason after the Ravens lost Matthew Judon and Yannick Ngakoue in free agency. The signing of Houston, a four-time Pro Bowl defenseman who has recorded at least eight sacks in each of the past four seasons, has met that need.
Last season with the Indianapolis Colts, Houston recorded eight sacks, one forced fumble, two fumbles recovered, 25 tackles, eight tackles for loss and 12 quarterback hits.
Houston joins a group of Ravens outside linebackers that include Odafe Oweh, Tyus Bowser, Pernell McPhee, Jaylon Ferguson, Daelin Hayes, Chris Smith and Aaron Adeoye.
