Ravens agreed to terms with WR Brandon Stokley, formerly of the Broncos.
Stokley knows Ravens OC Jim Caldwell quite well from their days together in Indianapolis. The 37-year-old appeared in 15 games and had 45 catches for 544 yards with the Broncos last season. Stokley isn't the answer for Baltimore's receiver woes, but it's a good landing spot for him because playing time is wide open. He'll compete with Tandon Doss and Deonte Thompson for snaps behind Torrey Smith and Deonte Thompson. The Ravens still need a big possession receiver to help replace Dennis Pitta and Anquan Boldin's vacated production.

I was kind of hoping Denver could keep Stokley stashed away on the side unsigned....and that way if Wes Welker got injured, he could step back in the slot and be a productive option that already knows the offense and has cohesiveness with Peyton Manning.

I am kinda surprised that he wanted to play another year. He had some great 3rd down catches and some sweet TD's but disappeared in games. There was no room on our roster. Type of guy you love to root for, hard working, come up with the big play at the right time, honkey, etc...

I'm not surprised that Stokley still wanted to play....he had the 3rd most productive year of his long career last season.

45 receptions for 544 yards and 5 TDs.

I was happy to sign Wes Welker as an obvious upgrade, but Stokley made some big plays for Denver last season.

My biggest fear about Stokley coming back for another season (if we hadn't signed Wes Welker) was his ability to stay healthy all season, as I felt lucky that he only missed one game last season being 36 years old.

I'm sure Brandon Stokley will help the Ravens out and convert some 3rd downs there to keep moving the chains.

Denver definitely got an upgrade with Wes Welker, but I appreciate the play of Stokley last season and think he is still capable of going and catching 30 to 40 passes for the Ravens, while notching another year in the NFL.

****. Didn't want Brandon to go there. Was hoping to have him as a fallback option in case we had an injury.

I love Stokes, always have during his two stints with the Broncos. That said, I hope the only thing he catches this year is some anal warts.

"The rest of the country saw what the Giants have been raving about when the rookie pass rusher known as "DaMonster" was virtually unblockable in Saturday's 18-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Moore blocked a punt, had four tackles, one quarterback hit and several pressures in addition to disrupting the Steelers' short-passing game."

I love how Price is shamelessly trying to steal credit from Med.

Maybe Elway figured he already had one too many Texas A&M players who might get suspended for 4 games

Actually, I was speaking for Med. To even think I would take credit from Med is preposterous. I would ban myself for such a transgression, then jump in the la brea tar pits and hide in a chicken coop.

On that note, I just saw this:

Quote:
Last season with the Denver Broncos, 30 of Stokley's 45 catches went for first downs (67 percent). Only the Steelers' Emmanuel Sanders and the Panthers' Brandon LaFell had more first downs on fewer catches.

The Ravens have added yet another veteran pass catcher, agreeing to terms with tight end Dallas Clark on Sunday, the club announced.
