The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to a one-year contract with former Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback Curtis Painter, according to the Associated Press.

Painter worked out for the Ravens today along with former starter Kyle Boller and former Pittsburgh Steelers backup Dennis Dixon; the Ravens decided on Painter. Financial terms of the deal have not been released.

Painter, a sixth-round draft pick in 2009, spent three seasons in Indianapolis as Peyton Manning's backup. He started eight games last season with Manning injured -- he threw for 1,541 yards, six touchdowns and nine interceptions, and the Colts went 0-8. Painter was benched late in the season in favor of Dan Orlovsky.
