Parker's contract was terminated by Baltimore (2-2) before the regular season began. Salave'a was inactive for the first four games. Last season, Parker, 31, had 29 tackles, a sack and forced two fumbles in 11 games.
Parker, 6-foot-3, 295 pounds, has previous stints with the New England Patriots, New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Chargers, earning a Super Bowl ring in 2001 with New England.
His best statistical season came in 2000 with the Seahawks with a career-high 48 tackles in 16 starts. The University of North Carolina graduate has 115 career tackles, five sacks and four forced fumbles.
"Riddick gives us a presence as a guy who can play end on first down and inside on passing downs," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "He gives us some versatility. He also gives us a solid veteran presence in the locker room, so that was the reason why we decided to do it."
