Ravens to re-sign receiver Brandon Stokley this week

CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora reports that the Ravens will bring back Brandon Stokley just days after releasing him.

Consider it a weekend off for Brandon Stokley.

The Ravens will re-sign Stokley today, according to a report from CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora. When the Ravens traded draft picks for left tackle Eugene Monroe last Wednesday, the corresponding roster move was to release tight end Billy Bajema.

Needing a third active tight end for the Miami game, the Ravens then released Stokley this past Saturday. Apparently the intention was to bring him back shortly after.


The Ravens played with just three active receivers on Sunday, those being Torrey Smith, Tandon Doss and Deonte Thompson. Considering Joe Flacco was hit and hurried quite a bit, the receivers did well. Smith caught six passes for 121 yards, Doss caught three passes for 58 yards and Thompson hauled in two catches for 11 yards after sustaining a concussion the previous week.

Jacoby Jones (sprained MCL) and Marlon Brown (strained hamstring) were inactive, though both should return to the lineup soon.

Stokley has been nothing more than a target on third downs, though, admittedly, that's a trait often underestimated at this level of football.

Moving forward, what's the next move the Ravens make? Is it one with Bryant McKinnie? Does a special teams player lose his spot?

Stay tuned.
