To continue a productive Friday of free agency for the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced that it has signed veteran safety Sean Considine to a one-year deal.
The signing of Considine helps fill the void left by safeties Tom Zbikowski and Haruki Nakamura, who both signed elsewhere in free agency. However, the Ravens are certainly not done addressing the safety position.
Signing Considine was mainly a special teams move, as he will likely only play safety in a very limited role.
But despite Considine's probably limited role in the team's defense, it is a solid signing.
The details of the deal are unknown, but it is likely that the deal is around the league minimum, as Considine has struggled finding significant playing time over the last few seasons.
Regardless of Considine's stats over the last few years (only 11 starts since 2009), the move may turn out to be quite beneficial to the Ravens.
Considine joins an already loaded special teams unit that consists of two pro-bowl players in Brendon Ayanbadejo and Corey Graham, and he may very well find a role in third-down defense for the Ravens.
