Ravens, Gurode reach agreement

The Baltimore Ravens and veteran year contract.

The club announced the news on Sunday afternoon that Gurode, surprisingly cut by the Cowboys on August 29 after a contract dispute, will join the Ravens pending the passing of a physical.

"We just got better as a team," said Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome. "To have a successful season, you have to have quality depth across the board. We just added great depth to the interior of the offensive line with Andre."

Gurode, selected in the second round of the 2002 draft out of Colorado, had been the longest-tenured Dallas player before his unceremonious departure.

The 32-year-old made the Pro Bowl in each of the last five seasons for the Cowboys, playing in 138 games (122 starts) over his nine-year pro career.
