The Baltimore Ravens added a defensive player for a change this offseason, reaching agreement in principle on a five-year deal with  Elvis Dumervil.

The team announced the deal, which is contingent on Dumervil passing a physical Tuesday. The Denver Post first reported the news.

Dumervil, who became a free agent when his signed Broncos contract was not received via fax before the deadline, has been a stalwart at defensive end in Denver. In Baltimore, he will bolster a defense depleted by the departure of Ray Lewis (retirement), Paul Kruger, Cary Williams, Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard.
