Priority number one this offseason for the Ravens, is to find weapons for Joe Flacco and the team’s passing attack. On Tuesday the Ravens signed Devier Posey, to a Reserve/Futures Contract.

The former Ohio State Buckeye was a third-round pick of the Houston Texans, the 68th overall pick, in 2012. Posey spent three seasons in Houston where he posted 22 catches for 272 yards. He also had brief stints with the New York Jets (2015) and Denver Broncos (2016) before crossing the border into Canada where he played for the Toronto Argonauts.

Recently he was named the Grey Cup MVP after hauling in 7 passes for 175 yards including this 100-yard score.

Any player who wasn’t on an active roster at the end of an NFL regular season can sign a Reserve/Futures Contract. Such contracts are usually extended to unrestricted free agents or players on practice squads that teams wish to control contractually.

Teams can sign a player to a Reserve/Futures Contract upon the conclusion of the previous regular season. The contract does not count against the salary cap or 53-man limit. Instead, it’ll count against the Rule of 51 salary cap and 90-man camp limit of the following season.

Posey turns 29 years old tomorrow.

Here’s the college scouting report on Posey from NFL.com:
