Report: Ravens to sign Brandon Stokley

The Ravens will sign veteran receiver Brandon Stokley, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The Ravens will sign veteran receiver Brandon Stokley, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Stokley played the 2012 season in Denver, catching 45 passes for 544 yards and five touchdowns. His best NFL season was in 2004 with Indianapolis, when he caught a singles-season best 68 passes for 1,077 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Stokley adds a veteran presence to the receiving group, where Jacoby Jones, at 29, is the oldest member of the unit.

With Dennis Pitta injured for the season and Deonte Thompson sustaining an ankle injury this past Thursday, the Ravens could use an experienced inside receiver.

The Ravens' first team didn't receive much production at receiver outside of Torrey Smith against the Buccaneers in the first preseason game. Jones, Thompson and Tandon Doss combined for one catch and five yards.

Stokley began his career in Baltimore, as the Ravens drafted him in the fourth round of the 1999 draft.

In his first four NFL seasons with Baltimore, Stokley totaled 913 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
