The Ravens traded Ngata to the Lions on Tuesday in exchange for 2015 fourth- and fifth-round picks, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Ngata will head to Detroit to replace the departed Ndamukong Suh on the defensive line. A suspension limited Ngata to 12 games last season, but he remains one of the league's premier defensive linemen.

Ngata returned to practice Tuesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Ngata is eligible to resume playing this week after completing a four-game suspension. He should help beef up a run defense that uncustomarily gave up over 100 yards on the ground each of the last two weeks.

Ngata has been suspended for the remainder of the regular season for a violation of the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Ngata owned up to his mistake in an official statement, where he admitted to taking the drug Adderall, which is commonly used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder. The defensive lineman will sit for the next four games, but should see an opportunity to return if the team is able to clinch a playoff berth. Ngata is one of the better lineman from an IDP standpoint, collecting 32 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions so far in 2014. The Ravens will look to Timmy Jernigan or DeAngelo Tyson to see an increased role in his absence.

Ngata had eight tackles (five solo), a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Bengals.

Ngata's strip-sack of Andy Dalton was probably Baltimore's biggest play in the game, as the veteran lineman continues to impress in what can arguably be called a bounce-back season. After playing a bit below his high standards the last two years, Ngata is back to dominating opposing offensive linemen, albeit with little payoff from a statistical perspective. His two interceptions are fluky, while he still only has 23 tackles (14 solo) and the one sack through eight games.

The Ravens are considering moving Haloti Ngata to defensive end.

The move would allow the Ravens to start Brandon Williams at nose tackle, with Ngata replacing Arthur Jones opposite Chris Canty. After playing through multiple injuries the last two seasons, Ngata could benefit from the switch to end. 30-year-old Ngata is scheduled to count $16 million against the cap in 2014 and remains a candidate to restructure.

The Baltimore Sun reports contract talks with NT Haloti Ngata went nowhere for the Ravens.

Ngata is scheduled to count a team-high $16 million against the 2014 salary cap and has two years left on his deal. The Ravens would ideally like to extend him like they did with Terrell Suggs in order to create space so they can re-sign free agents like Dennis Pitta, LT Eugene Monroe, and ILB Daryl Smith. Ngata just turned 30 years old and isn't going anywhere.

Ravens NT Haloti Ngata is scheduled to count a team-high $16 million against the 2014 salary cap.

Ngata has two years left on his five-year, $61 million deal and is a prime candidate for an extension in order to lower that astronomical cap hit. The 30-year-old didn't put up the sack numbers we'd grown accustomed to seeing the previous three seasons, but Ngata still graded out as a top-eight run defender in Pro Football Focus' end-of-season defensive tackle ratings.
