The former Giants guard agreed to a three-year, $22 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. The deal will keep the veteran under contract until his age-33 season.
The deal includes $16 million in fully guaranteed money, the report states.
The Giants saved $12 million against the cap by cutting Zeitler last week, a move that put the team in the green as free agency begins this week. Zeitler has been a dependable and quality starter for much of his career, having only missed one game since 2015.
Zeitler will now play for his third team in the AFC North. He spent his first five NFL seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, and then two years with the Cleveland Browns.
The Seahawks were among the other teams interested in signing him, according to NFL.com.
