For Immediate Release

RAVENS TRADE FOR WR CHRIS GIVENS

The Baltimore Ravens have obtained WR Chris Givens from the St. Louis Rams in exchange for a conditional draft pick, general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome announced Saturday morning.

To make room on their 53-man roster for Givens, the Ravens placed WR/RS Michael Campanaro (back) on Injured Reserve. 

In his fourth NFL season, Givens has played in 48 games, making 25 starts. The 6-0, 203-pounder owns 88 catches for 1,433 yards (16.3 avg.) and four touchdowns during his career. He has also returned 28 kickoffs for 640 yards (22.9 avg.) and rushed eight times for 48 yards (6.0 avg.)

Givens was originally selected by St. Louis out of Wake Forest in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

UPDATE: It's reported to be a seventh-rounder. Also, Campanaro suffered a herniated disk and is out for the year. That is news to us as well.
