The Baltimore Ravens have signed veteran running back Ricky Williams to replace Willis McGahee, who they let go days before training camp.
Ricky Williams could become the 26th member of the 10,000 rushing yards club, 12 of whom are Hall of Famers, this season.
Williams agreed to a two-year deal, the team announced on Monday. The contract is worth $2.5 million with some escalators that could make the contract worth $4 million total, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
