Zuttah joined the Ravens in exchange for a 2015 fifth-round draft pick.
The 6-foot-4, 308-pounder is the Ravens' new starting center, replacing Gino Gradkowski.
The Ravens are also reworking Zuttah's original four-year, $17.09 million contract to make it more salary-cap friendly than the original $4.5 million and $4.25 million salary-cap figures for 2014 and 2015, according to sources.
The Ravens are currently $4.176 million under the NFL salary cap of $133 million, with 59 contracts accounting for $126.284 million. That includes trading for Zuttah's old deal and signing safety Darian Stewart to a one-year, $1.3 million contract that includes a $1 million nonguaranteed base salary and a $300,000 signing bonus.
“This can be an outstanding change for me,” Zuttah told The Baltimore Sun on Sunday after the trade was completed. “It will be a great new start. I just want to win a championship. The Baltimore Ravens, just saying the name, it holds weight. When you say the team name, they have a very positive image and a great reputation. I'm very excited.”
