Ravens agree to deal with Spears

March 15, 2013

After an offseason of losing players from their Super Bowl roster, the Baltimore Ravens have made a free-agent acquisition that bolsters their defensive line.

A source told FOXSports.com that former Dallas Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears is signing a two-year contract with Baltimore.

The news was first reported by FOXSports.com.

Spears, 30, played all eight of his NFL seasons in Dallas after being one of the team’s 2005 first-round draft choices. Spears was released Thursday by the Cowboys, which are switching from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 scheme under new coordinator Monte Kiffin.
