Ravens Lose Both Safeties to Free Agency

Ruki and Tommy Z are both headed elswhere.

The Ravens lost both of their unrestricted free-agent backup safeties in the same day.

And they’ve also now had two defenders follow former Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano to Indianapolis.

Tom Zbikowski has agreed to terms on a contract with the Colts, he confirmed via Twitter. Zbikowski’s agent Ralph Cindrich tweeted Saturday morning that he signed a three-year deal with the Colts.

Zbikowski joins defensive end Cory Redding in Indianapolis as Pagano retools his roster.

Safety Haruki Nakamura signed a three-year deal with the Carolina Panthers earlier in the day Friday, leaving the Ravens without a backup safety currently on the active roster behind starters Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard.

Drafted by the Ravens in the third round in 2008, Zbikowski was Baltimore’s top backup safety. He also spent time as the team’s kick returner.
