The Baltimore Ravens have been adding free agents from other teams earlier in the day. On Thursday night, they locked up one of their own.

The team has re-signed nose tackle Brandon Williams to a five-year deal. His contract is worth $54 million.

He will receive $27.5 million guaranteed. Williams will be the highest-paid nose tackle in the National Football League.

The 28-year-old has spent the last four seasons with the team. In 55 games with the team, he had started 46 of them.

In his career, he has a 101 tackles, 4.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He also had three pass deflections.

The Ravens allowed 3.7 yards per play in 2016. With the team keeping Williams and adding Tony Jefferson, that number should drop.

Since Williams became a starter during the 2014 season, the Ravens have given up the third-fewest rushing yards at 93.8 yards per game. Teams have had to double team him as he tries to stuff the run.

He joins Terrell Suggs, Jimmy Smith, Haloti Ngata, Ray Lewis and Ed Reed to receive big-money second contracts from the team.
