The Ravens filled another of their primary offseason needs Sunday, acquiring starting center Jeremy Zuttah from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a 2015 fifth-round draft pick.

Zuttah, who has played all three interior offensive line spots for the Buccaneers, is expected to play center for the Ravens after Gino Gradkowski struggled last season as a first-year starter.

The deal is pending a physical, though the Ravens and Zuttah have already reworked the player’s original four-year, $17.09 million contract that he signed with Tampa Bay in March 2012, and are signing him to a new long-term contract, according to sources. Zuttah’s salary cap figures are now lower than the original $4.5 million in 2014 and $4.25 million in 2015, sources said.

“This can be an outstanding change for me,” Zuttah said in an interview with The Baltimore Sun. “It will be a great new start. I just want to win a championship. The Baltimore Ravens, just saying the name, it holds weight. When you say the team name, they have a very positive image and a great reputation. I'm very excited.”

Zuttah’s addition continues the Ravens’ focus on repairing their offensive line, which faltered badly last year as the team gained a franchise-low in rushing yards, and Joe Flacco was sacked more than all but one starting NFL quarterback last year.

“We said at the beginning of the offseason that we would be adding quality players to our line, and Jeremy fits that description,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement released by the team. Newsome was able to close the deal while at the NFL owners’ meetings, which officially begin here Monday at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes resort.
