Vonta Leach has rejoined the Baltimore Ravens less than seven weeks after being released by the Super Bowl champions.
The full-back became a free agent last month after refusing to take a pay-cut to remain with the AFC North side, initially vowing to find a new team within a fortnight.
The 31-year-old told the team's official website: "It was at times a frustrating process, but I know it's a business, and that's how it goes.
"Unfortunately I know all too well that it's a business. I had to be patient and continue to stay in good shape not knowing where I was going to be this year. But I'm glad I'm here."
Leach first signed for the Ravens in 2011 following a five-season spell with the Houston Texans.
