Ravens sign veteran center Casey Rabach

Casey Rabach started all but one game during his six-year tenure in Washington.

With the loss of Chris Chester in free agency and the possibility of Matt Birk having to have arthroscopic knee surgery the Ravens have signed veteran center Casey Rabach to a two-year deal.

Rabach was with the Ravens from 2001 to 2004 before leaving for Washington as a free agent. Rabach spent six seasons with the Redskins and was a staple of their offensive line, starting 79 or 80 regular season game and three post-season games.

The Redskins cut Rabach on July 28 after they signed Chester.

Last season Chester served a very valuable role on the team as a rotating offensive lineman capable of playing nearly every single position. Chester saw significant time last year but had he returned he would have went back to a fill-in role. With Chester leaving the Ravens needed that type of swing-offensive lineman back on the team and with his ability to play center and both guard positions Rabach fits that mold.

However, if Birk’s knee is a big issue, Rabach would be a very valuable player to have capable of filling in at center, without missing much of a beat.

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
