ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing an unnamed source close to the team, has reported that former Cowboys' safety Ken Hamlin has agreed to a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, the team for which he worked out earlier in the month.
Hamlin was released by Dallas in April, on the same day the team parted ways with tackle Flozell Adams.
Hamlin originally signed a one year deal with Dallas in 2007, his only Pro Bowl season, after playing four years in Seattle. As a result of this performance, he was awarded an ill-conceived six-year, $39 million deal.
As it happened, Hamlin would only play out two of those years, as he failed to return to Pro Bowl form in either 2008 or 2009.
In 2008, Hamlin's numbers dropped off significantly from the year prior--particularly with respect to interceptions (five in '07 to one in '08)--and last season, he struggled with a high ankle sprain, which kept him out of four games. In his place was Alan Ball, who will take over the position permanently in 2010.
Hamlin, who recorded 74 tackles in 2009, also visited the Cincinnati Bengals.
