The Colts announced Thursday they have traded center A.Q. Shipley to the Ravens for a 2014 conditional draft pick, allowing Baltimore to add depth to a position that will miss the retired Matt Birk next season.

The move also means Indianapolis is satisfied with either Samson Satele -- who started 11 games last year -- or fourth-round pick Khaled Holmes in that position for next season.

Meanwhile, Shipley, who started five games in Indianapolis last season, will battle with Gino Gradkowski -- a 2012 fourth-round pick – and Ryan Jensen for the right to replace Birk as the Ravens' starting center.

So, how did Shipley react to the news?
