The Baltimore Ravens have cemented their defensive streak, with two-time Super Bowl champion Jason Pierre Paul signing a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.
The NFL Network reported Thursday that the Pierre Paul deal could be worth up to $5.5 million with incentives.
Pierre Paul visited the Ravens in June, and they brought him in again this week to train again. The 33-year-old looked good to them, and an agreement was made.

The Ravens already own Calais Campbell, a 36-year-old Pro Bowler who has one sack a season with five tackles, and Udavi Ueh, who has yet to defeat quarterback or add a leading kick to his starting line. Justin Houston, another veteran, and owner Harrison are also on the defensive front.
Baltimore is coming off a shocking loss to the Miami Dolphins, who fought from a 28-7 delay in the first inning to win 42-38 on Sunday. The Ravens are creating pressure but haven’t been able to bring down the quarterback, and they hope JPP can help those efforts.

Pierre-Paul played 12 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021, the same team he won the Super Bowl with in 2020 as a Pro Bowler with 9.5 sacks. He only had 2.5 sacks in those 12 games, and the Bucs didn’t sign him.
The Ravens will be Pierre Paul’s third team in a 13-year career in the NFL, which began with the New York Giants in 2010 as a first-round draft pick. He earned a Super Bowl ring only in his second season, playing an important role in head-to-head defense with Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Chris Canty and Linval Joseph.
