The Ravens have signed free-agent inside linebacker Paul Worrilow, the team announced Friday.

Worrilow, 29, was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. With 52 starts over his NFL career, the Delaware native offers experience at a position where the Ravens are relatively young. Patrick Onwuasor, 27, is their most veteran contributor, and second-year players Chris Board and Kenny Young have started a combined three NFL games. Board also has been sidelined by a concussion lately.

The 6-foot, 230-pound Worrilow played four seasons for the Atlanta Falcons before signing with the Detroit Lions in 2017. Last year, he joined the Eagles but tore his ACL on the first day of organized team activities. After missing last season, he was sidelined all of training camp this summer with a swollen knee.

Over 72 NFL games, Worrilow has 415 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions and 11 passes defended. He’s also played extensively on special teams throughout his career, a trait the Ravens value.
