Ravens sign ex-Steelers guard Vincent

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (March 11, 2005) -- The Baltimore Ravens signed former Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Keydrick Vincent to fill their vacancy at right guard.

Vincent got a three-year contract. A 16-game starter last season for the AFC North champion Steelers, Vincent will replace Bennie Anderson, a four-year starter Baltimore decided not to retain.

"I'm very familiar with the Baltimore Ravens organization," Vincent said. "I'm a very physical lineman. Baltimore is a very physical team. I think I fit right in."

Baltimore also pursued Indianapolis Colts free agent guard Rick DeMulling, but decided he was too expensive. Atlanta Falcons free-agent guard Roberto Garza didn't pass his physical.

"He's an outstanding run blocker and he understands physical, hard-nosed play," Ravens offensive line coach Chris Foerster said of Vincent. "He brings an athleticism to pass protection, pulling. He's a very good athlete. As you can see, he has the size and the strength to continue our tradition of a physical offensive line."
