Pro Bowl wide receiver TJ Houshmandzadeh has agreed to a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, says insider Jason LaCanfora. Houshmandzadeh spent the past season with the Seattle Seahawks.

Houshmandzadeh, a 10-year veteran, signed a veteran minimum contract with Baltimore after being released from Seattle last Friday. He spent his first eight seasons with rival Cincinnati before signing a five-year, $40 million deal with Seattle.

Houshmandzadeh joins Anquan Boldin and Derrick Mason as one of the strongest wide out corps in the league. What was a weakness for the Ravens last year has become arguably their biggest strength.

He will most likely take the place of Donte Stallworth, who broke his foot against the New York Giants, and will miss at least eight weeks.
