Former Washington Redskins center Casey Rabach is going back to where his career began: Baltimore. The 33-year-old lineman was recently released by the Redskins and was picked up on Tuesday by the Ravens, according to a report in the Baltimore Sun.
Rabach was drafted by the Ravens in the third round in 2001, and played there for four seasons, becoming Baltimore's starting center in 2004 when then-starter Matt Flynn got hurt. The following offseason he signed with the Redskins as a free agent, and has been their full time starting center ever since.
Rabach signed a three-year extension with the 'Skins in 2010, but Washington's front office brass cut him as part of a roster-wide effort to get younger at each position. Rabach no longer fit into the Redskins' plans, especially after the free agent signing of former Ravens offensive lineman Chris Chester.
The 10-year veteran inked a two-year deal with his former team in light of injuries to incumbent Matt Birk.
