The Ravens continue to add depth to their roster, as they have signed wide receiver Brandon Jones and brought back defensive back Marcus Paschal.
Jones, 28, sat out last season after being released by the Seattle Seahawks during the final round of cuts. He’s the seventh receiver on the roster whose rights are owned by the Ravens.
Jones spent four years in Tennessee, playing in 51 games (27 starts). His best season came in 2008 when he made 41 receptions for 449 yards and a touchdown. Jones had just one catch the following season in San Francisco before heading to Seattle.
The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder was originally drafted out of Oklahoma by the Tennessee Titans in the third round in 2005, following teammate and former Ravens receiver Mark Clayton to the pros.
The Ravens also brought back Paschal after he spent parts of the last two seasons with the team.
He originally came to the Ravens’ practice squad in 2009 and twice was promoted to the active roster at the tail end of the season. Paschal spent the entire 2010 season on Injured Reserve due to an undisclosed injury.
The 6-footer from Iowa was an original undrafted free agent who played under Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh in Philadelphia in 2007. He spent the 2008 season out of football and bounced between the Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts before coming to Baltimore the following year.
He has seen action in five career games, making one tackle.
