Ravens Bring on Wideout Brandon Stokley

With a desperate need for depth at the wide receiver position, the Baltimore Ravens signed former Broncos wideout, Brandon Stokley.

The 37-year-old receiver actually played for the Ravens when the team won their first Super Bowl in 2001. With 14 seasons under his belt, Stokley has plenty of miles under the hood.

Despite his age, he still netted 45 catches for 544 yards when he played for the Broncos last season. Stokley used to play for Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell in Indianapolis, so he will be familiar with the offense sets in Baltimore.

This is more of a band-aid than a solution for the Baltimore passing game. With the loss of Anquan Boldin to the Niners and the season-ending injury to Dennis Pitta, the Ravens need a big-time playmaker for Joe Flacco to throw to.

Torrey Smith is a fantastic vertical threat, but the Ravens need a more consistent receiver to keep the chains moving on passing downs.
