The Baltimore Ravens have signed tight end, Dennis Pitta to a five year extension, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The veteran receiver was an integral part of the Ravens Super Bowl championship in 2012 but he missed a large portion of last season after a hip injury in pre-season.

Baltimore have reportedly been keen to sign the former Brigham Young player to an extension but the two sides have only just come to a deal.

Local newspaper, the Baltimore Sun reported today that the player had signed a five year deal, however the full details of the contract are yet to be released.'s Ian Rapoport believes that Pitta will earn around $6.5 million a year. 

Rapoport tweeted earlier: "On Dennis Pitta’s 5-year deal with #Ravens that he just struck, my understanding is the ballpark is about $6.5M per year. No firm details"

ESPN's Adam Schefter also said he believes the total sum would be $32 million, which would leave average annual salary at $6.4 million.

Pitta had 20 receptions for over 100 yards in four games last season.
