OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The Baltimore Ravens and safety Eric Weddle have agreed to terms on a four-year contract.

Weddle has spent his entire nine-year career with the San Diego Chargers. He was named to the Pro Bowl three times, most recently in 2014.

The Ravens announced the deal Monday. The 31-year-old Weddle is expected to take his physical Wednesday before signing the contract.

Weddle started in 13 games last season, and missed three with a groin injury.

In 137 career games, he has 813 tackles and 19 interceptions – three of which were returned for touchdowns.

The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Weddle was named San Diego's defensive player of the year in 2011, 2013 and 2014.

Weddle was selected out of Utah in the second round of the 2007 NFL draft.
