The Ravens went out and made one of the more underrated signings of the offseason, picking up fullback Vonta Leach before he could re-sign with the Texans. One problem: they'd already cut Willis McGahee and lost Le'Ron McClain to the Chiefs, leaving Ray Rice as the only running back worth using on their roster.

Enter Ricky Williams, who agreed to terms with Baltimore on Monday, according to Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the deal is a two-year contract "worth up to $4 million."

It's a pretty tremendous signing for the Ravens, who get to reunite Williams with his former head coach in Miami Cam Cameron (the OC with Baltimore, natch).

But, more importantly, Baltimore has upgraded their running game at this point, because adding Williams gives them a perfect power complement to the elusive (but also strong) Rice out of the backfield.

With Leach blocking and Williams giving Baltimore a different speed out of the backfield, don't be shocked if the Ravens running game is once again impressive in 2011.

Ravens sign RB Ricky Williams to two-year deal

PAGING MR . BITTERMAN . . . . . . . .  looks like the words hit their MARK. no trolling here , more to the point , truth hurts huh ? until i specifically pointed out , it appears raven fan was blisfully unaware of their teams stark decline . funny how a team hits mediocrity , subtle incconsequential players let go only to find homer fans reflecting mid season on WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED ,and then the realization , dang ! magahee , heap and mason were THAT important to our awe-fense ! but who can REALLY suggest such things to the homer , just have to let these things play o-u-t . BUT all we get is BEN bashing which can only be interpreted as BEN LOATHING , cause in the end . . . . . BEN makes the difference . That pick is about the haves and flacco is simply a HAVE NOT , RAVENS HAVE NOT . Without flaccos favorite bail out players on board , all of this will become painfully obvious this season . BEN is simply amazing . flacco is not . STEELERS are simply amazing , Ravens are not --- to the tune of 3 SB appearences in 5 years . is what it is gents , YOU JUST CAN'T GET BY THOSE STEELERS . It must be annoying .But I would expect by this point YOU could muster up some proper respect , perhaps not , but like I mentioned . . . . . it is cetainly coming ! week 1 as a matter of fact .
