OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) _ The Baltimore Ravens filled a hole in their depleted defensive line just hours before the NFL draft began Saturday, reaching an agreement in principle with tackle Sam Adams.

Adams, an unrestricted free agent, played with the Seattle Seahawks last season. He fills the hole left by the suspension of Larry Webster, who earlier this week was cited for violating the league's substance and alcohol abuse policy. Webster has appealed the ruling.

Adams, a 6-foot-4, 300-pounder, also was pursued by the Green Bay Packers. In 13 games last season he had 38 tackles and one sack.
