DL Redding signs with Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens announced that they have signed Seattle unrestricted free agent Cory Redding to a two-year deal.

Redding came to Seattle via trade from Detroit during the free agency period last season for linebacker Julian Peterson and a fifth-round draft pick.

Redding’s play was uneven for Seattle. He finished with 20 tackles and two sacks, starting three games for the Seahawks and playing both defensive end and defensive tackle.

He’ll play defensive tackle for Baltimore in the team’s 3-4 scheme, which should be a good fit for his skill set. Redding replaces Dwan Edwards, who signed a four-year, $18 million deal with Buffalo. Edwards visited Seattle early in the free agency period.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll had mentioned Redding as one of the players defensively he noticed during his film evaluation of the team.
