Ellerbe, Dolphins agree on deal
The hits keep coming to the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Baltimore Ravens’ roster.
The Ravens had hoped to re-sign Ellerbe prior to the 4 p.m. EST start of the free agency period, but were unsuccessful in doing so. Terms of his new deal with Miami have not yet been announced.
Ellerbe’s signing with the Dolphins came roughly an hour after Paul Kruger’s five-year, $41 million deal with the Browns was reported. Both deals come one day after Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a sixth-round pick.
Miami has already inked deals with receivers Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace. The deal with Ellerbe, a surprise to many, marks another big move for Jeff Ireland and company.
Ellerbe played admirably in relief of Lewis in 2012. Undrafted out of Georgia, he appeared in 13 games in 2012, accounting for 69 tackles and 4.5 sacks.
