The Baltimore Ravens are boosting their defensive pass rush, signing outside linebacker Justin Houston to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Houston, 32, is a four-time Pro Bowler who's recorded at least eight sacks in the last four seasons. His deal with the Ravens is reportedly worth $4 million. 

The Ravens lost two pass rushers in Matthew Judon and Yannick Ngakoue during free agency before drafting first-round pick Odafe Oweh out of Penn State. Last season, they recorded 26 sacks when not blitzing, the fewest in the NFL. 

Houston and the Ravens met in April but didn't come to an agreement at the time. Baltimore decided to secure the pass rusher before the preseason, adding him to a group of edge rushers highlighted by Tyus Bowser and Pernell McPhee.
