Former No. 1 pick Jake Long will sign with the Baltimore Ravens, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

Long, 31, confirmed the news on his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon. He will have to pass a physical to complete the signing.

The offensive lineman was drafted first by the Dolphins in 2008, but has dealt with numerous injuries over the course of his career and has not started a game since 2014. He appeared in four games with the Falcons last season.

The Ravens selected left tackle Ronnie Stanley in the first round of this year’s draft and recently released tackle Eugene Monroe. Long will reportedly work in a backup capacity behind Stanley and right tackle Rick Wagner.
