    Rolle agrees to six-year deal with Ravens

    NFL.com wire reports

    OWINGS MILLS, Md. (March 7, 2005) -- Cornerback Samari Rolle agreed to a six-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, who last week lost Gary Baxter to the Cleveland Browns.

    Rolle was a 2000 Pro Bowl selection with the Tennessee Titans. He also had been pursued by the Kansas City Chiefs, but their interest cooled because of health concerns.

    Like new Ravens receiver Derrick Mason, Rolle was a salary-cap casualty before the free-agent signing period in Tennessee.

    In 2000, Rolle intercepted seven passes to anchor a Titans defense that went 13-3 and lost in the AFC divisional round to the Ravens. Rolle was limited to a career-low 12 games last season because of an injured left knee that has required arthroscopic surgery. He finished with just one interception and 28 tackles.

    He'll replace Baxter, last year's starting cornerback who joined the Browns after initially reaching an agreement with Baltimore. Cleveland signed him to a six-year contract.

    Rolle was accompanied by his wife, Danisha, at the Ravens' training complex.
