The Ravens lost two of their draft picks when tight end Davon Drew and running back Cedric Peerman were immediately picked up by other teams.
On Tuesday, they gained one of them back.
Drew, who was signed by the Miami Dolphins when the Ravens released him on Sept. 5, was added to the Ravens’ practice squad in place of tight end Isaac Smolko. Baltimore originally wanted to keep him on the developmental unit, but the Dolphins claimed him immediately off waivers.
A fifth-round draft pick out of East Carolina, Drew was waived as an injury designation after only one practice in Miami.
Drew, 6-foot-4, 255 pounds, battled an ankle injury at the start of Ravens training camp, but he did see action in Baltimore’s preseason contests.
A former quarterback for the Pirates, Drew switched to tight end in 2006 and went on to earn All-Conference USA honors his junior and senior years.
Peerman joined the Cleveland Browns and remains on their roster.
