Former Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears signs two-year deal with the Ravens

Defensive end Marcus Spears, released on Thursday by the Cowboys, wasn't out of work long.

It took him less than a day to sign a two-year contract with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

Spears announced the news on his twitter account @mspears96: "I'm a raven!! See u in Maryland God is so good."

According to reports, Spears will get $3.55 million over the next two years. He was scheduled to make $2 million in 2013 from the Cowboys.

Spears is the second former Cowboys defensive lineman to join the Ravens this week, following defensive tackle Chris Canty, who played fours years in Dallas after being drafted by the Cowboys in 1995 before playing with the past four years with the Giants.

Spears will likely be a backup in Baltimore just as he was in Dallas the past couple of years.

He is the third player from the Cowboys' 2012 roster to leave for another team. Receiver Kevin Ogletree signed with the Bucs, and tight end John Phillips went to San Diego.
