The Ravens officially announced they've signed third-round draft pick Terrence Brooks on Friday. They also announced another roster move that will add depth for at least the rest of voluntary workouts.

The Ravens signed former Tennessee-Martin outside linebacker DJ Roberts, an undrafted free agent. In college, Roberts, 6-1 and 252 pounds, appeared in 45 games and recorded 174 tackles (90 solo), 39.5 stops for loss, 12.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Roberts was linked to the Ravens shortly after the NFL draft ended, though he never did sign a contract. Now he's officially a part of the franchise.

To make room for Roberts on the offseason 90-man roster, the Ravens waived quarterback Nick Stephens — which is probably good for Stephens since reps would be at a premium with Joe Flacco, Tyrod Taylor and Keith Wenning all on the roster.

This undrafted free agent signing follows the Ravens inking former Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussaint on Thursday.
