Hamlin lands with Ravens as reserve

The rest of the NFL agreed with the Cowboys' decision this spring. Ken Hamlin isn't worth big money.

Hamlin settled for a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. He'll be insurance behind Ed Reed, who is coming back from hip surgery.

It's a wise move by the Ravens. Hamlin won't hurt them if he's pushed into the starting lineup. He just won't make many plays, which is why the Cowboys cut him before the third season of a six-year, $39 million deal.

Hamlin took a one-year deal when he came to Dallas in 2007 and responded with his only Pro Bowl season, convincing the Cowboys to pay him like an elite safety. Two years later, he couldn't find a team willing to commit to him as a starter, but he at least landed with a contender that he can help.
