The Ravens continued their flurry of free-agent moves Friday by agreeing to terms with safety Sean Considine on a one-year deal.

With the departures of Tom Zbikowski (Indianapolis) and Huruki Nakamura (Carolina) in free agency, Considine fills an immediate need and will likely help on special teams.

The Ravens will be Considine’s fifth team his last five NFL seasons.

Considine spent his first four years, including three with Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, in Philadelphia. He was originally drafted by the Eagles with the first pick in the fourth round in 2005.

The former Iowa product had his best season as a sophomore in 2006, recording 85 tackles, 1. 5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble while starting a career-high nine games.

Philadelphia did not re-sign him after the 2008 season and Considine went to Jacksonville for two seasons. He started 11 games for the Jaguars and recorded 52 tackles, one sack and one interception in 2010.

Considine, 29, split the 2011 season between the Carolina Panthers and then the Arizona Cardinals.

The 6-foot, 212-pounder will join Baltimore safeties Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard. Baltimore also has exclusive rights free agent safety Emanuel Cook.
