Houshmandzadeh signs with Ravens

Remember how we posted last night that former Seahawks WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh – he of the $7 million guarantee – likely would end up in Oakland or in Washington. Well, we were close. He’s going to Baltimore.

Adam Schefter of ESPN.com , who’s been on quite a tear the past couple days, is reporting Houshmandzadeh and the Ravens have reached agreement on a one-year deal that will pay him $855,000 (the Seahawks have to pay him the rest of his guaranteed money).

In an interesting twist, Houshmandzadeh will be on the field when New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis takes his first game action of the 2010 season Sept. 13. Anquan Boldin is Baltimore’s top WR, but Houshmandzadeh should fit in fine with reliable WR Derrick Mason and TE Todd Heap. I imagine Houshmandzadeh will take a good chunk of Mark Clayton’s work in those three-receiver packages.

This isn’t the fastest or the youngest WR corps in the NFL, but the Ravens front office has given QB Joe Flacco some pretty good weapons. Houshmandzadeh will add his specialty into the mix, making tough catches across the middle and grabbing receptions that give his team first downs.

UPDATE (1:02 P.M.): According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post , Clayton is on the trading block now. If the Ravens can't trade him, the plan is to release him.

UPDATE (1:25 p.m.): USA Today caught up with Houshmandzadeh, and the WR said LB Ray Lewis recruited him to the team to help the Ravens win the Super Bowl.

"Ray said, 'If you want to win, this is the place to be,''' Houshmandzadeh told the paper. "The way he is on the field is how he is off the field. Passionate. Our conversation was passionate and insightful.

"I know from competing againt those guys when I was in Cincinnati how it is in Baltimore.''

UPDATE (3:19 p.m.): Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com is reporting the Ravens have traded Clayton to the Rams for late-round draft pick considerations. St. Louis needs some help at WR, and now, the Rams have it.
