Report: Ravens to sign receiver Brandon Stokley

Brandon Stokley caught three passes for 52 yards and a 38-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Trent Dilfer in helping lead the Baltimore Ravens to their first Super Bowl victory in a 34-7 win over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV.
Thirteen years later, Stokley is returning to the place where his career began.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens plan to sign Stokley to a contract that will bring their former fourth-round draft pick in 1999 back to the organization.
Stokley caught 45 passes for 544 yards and five touchdowns last season for the Denver Broncos. However, Stokley became a redundant piece for Denver following the signing of Wes Welker.
Stokley should add some veteran stability to a largely unproven group of receivers for Baltimore behind Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.
