Default Boulware Back With Ravens - True or False??

Saw this article today,

WESTMINSTER, Md. (Aug. 18, 2005) -- Former Pro Bowl linebacker Peter Boulware re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens after passing his physical.

Team doctors spent much of the day scrutinizing the details of Boulware's physical. He signed a contract at 6:45 p.m., the Ravens announced in a news release.

The contract was expected to be a one-year deal worth $1 million with an additional $1 million in incentives. The team said Boulware wouldn't comment until after Friday's practice.

The 30-year-old Boulware is the Ravens' all-time leading pass rusher with 67½ career sacks. The four-time Pro Bowl selection missed all of 2004 with knee and toe injuries. He was released after the season in a salary-cap move.

Boulware won't play immediately and will be eased into contact drills.

"You don't want to put a player at risk," Ravens coach Brian Billick said. "He feels good. We just have to make sure everyone else signs off on it."

The Ravens plan to use Boulware as a situational pass rusher in nickel packages and as Adalius Thomas' backup at strongside linebacker. Rookie Dan Cody was expected to fill that role, but he might be out for the season with a knee injury.

"We've always talked about the pressure from the outside and contrasting that with Terrell Suggs," Billick said. "If that's a nickel role, you're talking 15-25 snaps. He's capable of doing more, but we have a lot of assets here to balance that out. If we can use him more, we will."

If his health holds up, he'll be a situational guy that will only continue to improve one of the NFL's best defenses.
