Long, 31, spent the 2015 season with the Atlanta Falcons but played in only four games.
Long was the first overall pick in the 2008 draft by the Dolphins, with whom he made four Pro Bowls during his five-year tenure in Miami. He then spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons with the St. Louis Rams, during which time injuries — two ACL tears — took a toll on his productivity and availability.
So excited to be a part of the Ravens organization!! Back to football and a lot to prove. Time to get to work!!

The Ravens have a need for depth along the line after releasing longtime tackle Eugene Monroe, who announced his retirement last week.
