Ravens get C Shipley from Colts for draft pick
The trade, announced Thursday by the Ravens, will be finalized after Shipley passes a physical.
Shipley played in 14 games last season with the Colts, getting five starts. He played a key role on an offensive line that was often decimated by injuries. He participated on special teams for Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game in Baltimore last season.
But Shipley became expendable after the Colts selected Khaled Holmes, a center and guard from Southern California in the fourth round of last month's draft -- part of Indy's revamped offense line that has added four new players through free agency and the draft.
The 6-foot-1, 309-pound Shipley was selected in the seventh round of the 2009 draft by Pittsburgh. He was a member of the Steelers' practice squad in 2009 and on Philadelphia's practice squad in 2010 before signing with Indianapolis in 2012.
He played in college at Penn State.
