Receiver LaQuan Williams re-signs with Ravens

Returning to franchise after being waived prior to the 2013 season.

LaQuan Williams is back with Baltimore.

On twitter, the fourth-year receiver announced that he's back with the Ravens, the organization he spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons with.


In case you wanted confirmation, Torrey Smith, who was also Williams' teammate at the University of Maryland, tweeted his reaction to the news.


The Ravens waived Williams on Sept. 1 last year, opting to go with rookies Aaron Mellette and Marlon Brown instead. Mellette wound up missing the season due to a knee injury, though Brown impressed by tying Smith's rookie record of catching seven touchdowns.

Williams spent some brief time with the Patriots before being released.

It could be even tougher for Williams to make the 53-man roster this time around, however. The Ravens' top four receivers are Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown. Behind those four are Mellette and Deonte Thompson. Then there's the chance the Ravens select a receiver, or possibly two, in this year's NFL draft.

But overcoming the odds isn't anything new for Williams. After injuries derailed his college career at Maryland, the Ravens were the only team to inquire about him as an undrafted free agent due to his special teams ability in 2011. He made the roster and then latched on again for the 2012 season.

If Williams can show that he's still a valuable asset to the roster on special teams, he could have a chance at claiming a roster spot once again.

It won't be easy though.
