Ravens to sign FB Neal
Published: Tuesday, August 12, 2008
The Baltimore Ravens are expected to sign four-time Pro Bowl fullback Lorenzo Neal on Tuesday.
Neal, a 15-year veteran, passed a physical with the team Tuesday morning.
One of the game's best blocking fullbacks, Neal spent his last five seasons with the San Diego Chargers, where he paved the way for LaDainian Tomlinson. The veteran has blocked for a 1,000-yard rusher in 11 straight seasons.
Last season, the 37-year-old Neal missed the final three regular-season games and postseason with a fractured right fibula.
