The Ravens have re-signed offensive guard Ramon Harewood, the club said Wednesday. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun previously reported Harewood’s return. Harewood was non-tendered as a restricted free agent by Baltimore before being re-signed.

The 6-foot-6, 334-pound Harewood started the first five games of 2012 at left guard for Baltimore before losing his spot in the lineup. According to the Ravens, the 26-year-old Harewood is the first player from Barbados to play in the NFL.

The Ravens also said they have re-signed running back Damien Berry, an exclusive rights free agent.

    Big moves.

    Oz always has a plan. I have no idea what it is right now, but hopefully he knows. He has earned the trust that the Ravens fans have in him.

    Typical Raven basher will say “Who?!?!… Oh the Ravens are done” The Ravens do this every year, the biggest “splashes” we make are huge yet fly under the radar because they aren’t big name/contract players.

    Corey Graham, Vontae Leach, Jacoby Jones, Matt Birk, Mackennie, Pollard, and many many more are guys you lames never mention when we get em yet they contribute in ways you will never understand. 95% of you are all about big names and shock value, while the Ravens front office is about non of that which has been PROVEN(meaning non debatable) based off of our success. Can’t debate proven success.

    Nice, they kept a couple guys.

  4. bluefunk72 says: Mar 13, 2013 1:19 PM

    Actually Robert Bailey, was the first Barbados born player in the NFL, and since Bailey won a Superbowl with the Ravens in SB XXXV, you would think they would know better!

    Most people on this site can’t see past their own ass, much less comment on the status of a team they don’t like.

    Winning generates envy. And Americans have a big envy problem.

    Oh yeah, this offensive line man is proof you are going to the super bowl…

  7. tjrogers09 says: Mar 13, 2013 1:27 PM

    Love Ozzie and what he’s done with our squad over the years but I honestly have no idea what his plan is right now…We have chopped some serious game changing players…Can somebody help me understand some of these moves???

    Pollard was at the prime of his career and for cheap, not sure of that move. If it’s an attempt to keep Ed Reed I’m not sure I agree with that move. Pollard is younger and can actually tackle.

  8. willbrownimaging says: Mar 13, 2013 1:27 PM

    Any particular reason why Baltimore re-signed Harewood, but you have a photograph of Bryant McKinnie accompanying the article?

    Humblebrain says : Ravens = proven success. ONE SB and lucky desperation pass. Wow

  10. Giantspunk213 says: Mar 13, 2013 1:30 PM

    He’ll be released tomorrow

  11. thetechnocrat says: Mar 13, 2013 1:32 PM

    They also resigned LS Morgan Cox to a 2 year 1.6 mil deal yesterday as well.

    “Pollard was at the prime of his career and for cheap, not sure of that move. If it’s an attempt to keep Ed Reed I’m not sure I agree with that move. Pollard is younger and can actually tackle.”

    Pollard has health issues. He broke 6 ribs in the SB and wasn’t right all season with nagging injuries.

    Really though, he’s due a bundle over the next few years and this was Ozzie’s way of hedging against the cap. He’ll be missed, but they will plug that position fast.

    ====================================

    ACTUALLY, Vontae Leach, Bernard Pollard, and Matt Birk were pretty big signings. They weren’t some scrubs the Ravens turned into gold.

    As for Jacoby Jones, he was most recently known as a choke-artist and special-teams only player. He fumbled two kick returns that led to the Ravens advancing in the previous year’s playoffs.

    He ended up being a viable receiver once he got to the Ravens.

    But as for the rest of your nonsense, please shut up. The Ravens have made big signings in the offseasons. Boldin can be added to those.

    It seems like they’re in a fire-sale, and whether you want to admit it or not… they’re looking to be in a world of hurt for this upcoming season. They’ve lost a lot of talent. They pretty much have NO linebackers. BOTH starting safeties could be gone. They lost one of the guys who pretty much bailed Flacco out and answered his “prayer” throws. All they’ve added is… Chris Canty so far.

    Perhaps they end up having a ton of cap space to spend NEXT offseason, but right now for this season upcoming… it’s not looking good.

    Another of Ozzies moon walking on water moves eh ravenator. Yup I am impressed again.

    Idiots….ever hear of SB 35? The “lucky pass” only tied the game…the Broncos couldn’t get it done…deal with it.

    I would say 5 straight trips to the playoffs, 3 AFC title games, and 2 Super Bowls is pretty successful. But coming from a hater who can’t remember SB35 (I know, it was sooooo long ago!) this is to be expected I suppose.

  16. Steeley McBeam says: Mar 13, 2013 1:42 PM

    Two things:

    1) I wont say “who” when a player could be a hidden gem with upside but this dude had his shot and lost his spot after 5 games. Didnt get any restricted tender and generated no buzz in FA. So, the entire NFL says — who?

    2) Everyone says Oz has a plan but unless he plans on getting Revis or turning his 32rd overall pick into multiple first rounders; how much can his plan really help the team? Theres only so many FAs and we all know who they are. They cant get some superstar out of nowhere.

    Maybe they’re banking on comp picks next season?

  17. mountaingirl39 says: Mar 13, 2013 1:43 PM

    Ozzie does this every year, has people scratching their heads and in the end makes good decisions. Heck some commentators, idiot fans (and haters) are already writing the Ravens off. Let’s sit back and see who is on the team come Training Camp.
    Good lord, this site become TMZ with all the gossip mongering and backbiting remarks. …..

  18. bigbenh8tr says: Mar 13, 2013 1:44 PM

    Give me a break Ravens fans.

    We aren’t allowed to question a free agency move without being called an uneducated hater? Your problem is these guys weren’t no names when you signed them. Anyone who is more than an avg football fan knew who Pollard was before the Ravens.
    Ed Reed is 34, he is clearly being held onto with the hopes that he can rally the team for the next 3 years just like Ray Lewis was able to do. Too bad Pollard is not a vocal leader and gives too many dirty hits to keep himself healthy. Can’t wait to see yal get stomped by the Patriots next season – Love an NFC fan

  19. proanvk says: Mar 13, 2013 1:45 PM

    Maybe, just maybe their plans are to go after Michael Huff (FS), previously of the Raiders…that would be a great look as far as the secondary goes…Food for thought!

  20. jr4real says: Mar 13, 2013 1:47 PM

    oh, this should do a lot for them. Put a fork in them.

  21. proanvk says: Mar 13, 2013 1:48 PM

    Really? Tom Brady is on the “downside” of his career…he was scared in the AFC Championship game….he’s done…No “SPYGATE” No more SuperBowls for the PATS….I rest my case….

  22. proanvk says: Mar 13, 2013 1:49 PM

    The Pats haven’t won a SuperBowl since Mangini called their cheating butts out!

  23. ampatsisahypocrite says: Mar 13, 2013 1:55 PM

    Wow, they locked up Ramon Harewood!!!! I guess you Ravens fans were so right about Flacco’s contract not having any effect on the team!!!!

    And as for this guy…

    Oh really? What, you overpay a second-tier QB 120 mil EVERY YEAR? Yeah just business as usual, this off-season is nothing unusual for us, yada yada blah blah blah.

    News flash — I’ve mentioned Jones many times, because he’s the guy who really deserved the big money, not Flacco. Without Jones running back all those kicks for TDs, the Ravens might not even make the playoffs. (They sure don’t win the Bowl if not for him). Without Jones coming back for Flacco’s underthrown stink-bombs and turning them into TDs, the Ravens win nothing. So wrong about us not recognizing who REALLY gets it done for Baltimore. In fact, do you not see why we’re all pointing out Flacco’s overpaid mediocrity in the FIRST PLACE? Because guys like Jones carry him and earn him the big money.

    Newflash – Flacco’s cap hit is $6.8 mil this year (less than last year) and $14 next (right around Bradys).

    Research makes people sound smart, the lack of makes them sound stupid.

    I have no clue about the Ravens organization!!

    ————————————-

    I agree, watermelon1! I guess just since the Ravens won the Super Bowl everyone can pretend to be an expert. You clearly know nothing about the Ravens, watermelon1. Firstly, we traded for Anquan, we didn’t sign him as a free agent. Secondly, the signings of Pollard, Jacoby Jones, and Corey Graham were NOT big signings, and they were all key contributors.

    Too many years I’ve watched the Ravens get killed by commenters and commentators alike during free agency, only to see Ozzie’s moves pan out during the season.

    You’re just another PFT commenter who watched ONLY the Ravens’ playoff games and think you know everything about the Ravens.

    I comment on the Ravens because I typically miss only 1-3 snaps all season. I keep my mouth shut about teams that I saw play for 2-3 games in the playoffs.

  27. humbleminded85 says: Mar 13, 2013 2:04 PM

    To all non Ravens who comment on our storys, I never comment on other teams yet all of you comment about MY team, yet I have no clue who yours is. Take that for what it’s worth. And mountiangirl could not have said it any better, this once respectable site has turned into TMZ when it comes to the comment section. Continue talking about MY team though…

    ____________________________________
    Graham was selected to his first Pro Bowl in 2011 after a season in which he recorded 16 total tackles, deflected three passes, forced a fumble, and caught three interceptions – Tell why he is important other than his one big int for the Ravens

    Vontae Leach – Not a no name at all, he made the pro bowl with the Texans the year before you got him and was one of the better FBs in the entire NFL & was awesome in College

    Jacoby Jones – Don’t really need to say anything, if you think he’s a no name you were in a bunker til the Ravens got to the playoffs

    Matt Birk- 5 pro bowls with the Vikings – I’m starting to think you are just insane – This is how all Ravens fans think?

    Pollard – Had 2 consecutive seasons with 100 tackles and 4 ints (2009)and 4 forced fumbles (2010)

    Bryant McKinnie (you should know how to spell the names of players on your own team big dog) Pro Bowler and great player for the Vikings who was simply released because he showed up overweight to training camp and the Ravens scooped him up.

    WOWWWWWWWWWW. WHAT A GM. Get off the bath salts and learn about your own team before posting something so ridiculously ignorant

    —————————————————-

    Uh Newsflash — players don’t sign contracts for just ONE YEAR. How many times do I have to tell you Baltimorons this? That’s why your worn-out “but Joe only counts 6.8 mil next year” excuse makes no sense whatsoever. I don’t care if Flacco only counted 6 dollars and 80 cents against the cap next year, it’s the TOTAL of the next 3-5 years that matters. And considering that this is the RICHEST contract EVER SIGNED, I’d be a little concerned. Especially when that number balloons to 31 mil!

    Yeah, lack of research makes people sound dumb, all right.

    But of course, all those key players like Boldin, Kruger and Ellerbe leaving have nothing to do with Flacco, right? Yeah I mean, they kept Harewood!!!!

    No commenting on MY team. No fairsies. It makes me sad. Leave Britney alone.

  31. farmmbig says: Mar 13, 2013 2:29 PM

    I might be wrong– But I swear the picture in this article is of Bryant McKinnie??… As a Vikings’ fan, those flailing arms look all-too familiar.

  32. st1llerz1 says: Mar 13, 2013 3:33 PM

    Whew! Just when we thought the ratbirds might be losing some key players, they’ve saved the ship by resigning Ramon Harewood! All is well in luckimore now.

    This guy was such a vital cog in the gears that they didn’t even have a picture of him to post with the article!

    As the Nest Burns…

    GO STEELERS!
