OWINGS MILLS, Md., March 12 (UPI) -- Veteran defensive end Trevor Pryce Sunday signed as a free agent with the Baltimore Ravens.
The 6-foot-5 inch, 286-pound Pryce was a first-round draft pick by Denver in 1997 out of Clemson and played for the Broncos for nine seasons.
The Baltimore Sun reported that Pryce signed a five-year, $27.5 million deal. It included a $6 million signing bonus.
"He's very, very excited to go to a veteran club," his agent, Peter Schaffer, told the newspaper.
In his career, Pryce, 30, has 317 total tackles, 64 sacks, two interceptions and nine fumble recoveries. In the 2005 regular season, he had 31 tackles and four sacks and added one tackle in two playoff games.
His signing came as the Ravens lost running back Chester Taylor, defensive end Tony Weaver and defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu, who all signed free agent deals with other teams this weekend.
