The Ravens are re-signing veteran linebacker and special teams standout Albert McClellan to a multi-year deal, according to the Baltimore Sun.
McClellan, who has been with the Ravens since 2010, was set to become a free agent next week.
The Ravens have not officially announced any deal.
McClellan, 29, is highly valued by Ravens coaches for his versatility -- he's shown the ability to play both inside and outside linebacker and has been one of the Ravens top special teams players for years.
This season, McClellan finished with 11 tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery on defense and also had six special teams tackles. He led the team in special teams tackles in 2011 (12), 2013 (12) and 2014 (13).
McClellan was originally signed by the Ravens as an undrafted rookie out of Marshall in 2010. He spent that season on the Ravens practice squad before making the 53-man roster in 2011. Only five current Ravens have longer tenure with the Ravens.
McClellan was one of 11 Ravens who were set to become unrestricted free agents when the new league year begins next week. Another, kicker Justin Tucker, was given the franchise tag, so he's off the market as well.
The remaining pending Ravens unrestricted free agents include linebacker Chris Carter, quarterback Jimmy Clausen, long snapperMorgan Cox, wide receiver Chris Givens, offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele, tight end Allen Reisner, quarterback Matt Schaub, linebacker Courtney Upshaw and cornerback Shareece Wright.
