Jeremy Zuttah Reportedly Agrees to 2-Year Contract with Baltimore Ravens

Jeremy Zuttah has experienced quite the unusual offseason.

The team announced Aug.18 that it has signed Zuttah, whom the Ravens had dealt to the San Francisco 49ers in the offseason as they looked to revamp their offensive line.

The 49ers cut Zuttah last week and was getting interest from not just the Ravens, but also the Colts. On Friday, that translated into a new two-year contract.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Zuttah's deal with the Ravens is for two years and worth up to $6 million.

Kenny Bell, a former star wide receiver for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, has been waived by the Baltimore Ravens. With the loss of both Alex Lewis (shoulder) and rookie Nico Siragusa (ACL) to season-ending injuries, as well as the retirement of John Urschel, the Ravens offensive line is in need, and Zuttah fills that need well.

After a brief run with the 49ers, center Jeremy Zuttah has returned to Baltimore.

Zuttah spent the past three seasons in Baltimore. The Ravens originally acquired Zuttah in March 2014 from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a fifth-round pick. Although he missed seven games in a 2015-16 Ravens season also defined by injuries, he bounced back last season and made his first Pro Bowl. The Colts needed a center due to center Ryan Kelly's foot surgery as he will be out 6-8 weeks but the Ravens bring him back as either a starter at center, quality offensive line depth, or a potential position change to offensive guard.
