Former Miami Dolphins first-overall Draft pick Jake Long has agreed to a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens:

The Dolphins drafted Long with the first selection in the 2008 Draft. He spend five seasons with the team, earning four Pro Bowl and one First-Team All-Pro selections. He started all 74 games in which he played for Miami, but missed six games over his last two years with the team as various injuries began to mount.

Long signed with the St. Louis Rams in 2013 as a free agent, playing in 22 games in two years for the club. He signed with the Atlanta Falcons last year, but only played in four games.

Long has battled back, shoulder, triceps, and knee injuries over the past few years. He was seen as a generational talent at left tackle when the Dolphins selected him, but the injuries derailed his career. Now, he will look to continue his career as a reserve tackle, backing up Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley and right tackle Ricky Wagner.
