OWINGS MILLS — The Baltimore Ravens signed rookie tight end Davon Drew to the practice squad, reclaiming their fifth-round draft pick after he received an injury settlement recently from the Miami Dolphins.


Drew tried out for the Ravens on Monday.


Drew was claimed off waivers by the Dolphins after the Ravens cut him during their final major roster cutdown, which prevented Baltimore from placing him on their practice squad.


Days later, Drew was cut loose by the Dolphins after just one practice. Drew replaces tight end Isaac Smolko on the practice squad.


Drew failed the Ravens’ conditioning test when he reported to training camp and dealt with a sprained ankle throughout the preseason.


Drew was one of two Ravens draft picks to be claimed by other teams with running back Cedric Peerman claimed by the Cleveland Browns. A converted quarterback, Drew was named All-Conference USA twice.


Also, offensive lineman Brian Johnson received an injury settlement from the Ravens.
