Ravens sign veteran Keith Kirkwood after cutting rookie wide receiver

Ahead of training camp, the squad is strengthening its wideout depth chart.
Tayvion Robinson, an undrafted rookie wide receiver, was cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday. In a move that coincided with their goal of returning to 91 players on the roster, minicamp tryout and six-year veteran Keith Kirkwood was signed on Friday.
Kirkwood took part in the mandated minicamp held by the Ravens as a tryout and used a strong enough performance to secure a position on the roster when the team reunites for training camp in July and August.

The 29-year-old Kirkwood is a former undrafted free agent who played collegiately at Temple University and has spent his entire career up to this point in the NFC South. He originally signed with the New Orleans Saints where he spent his first two seasons, spent a two-year stint with the Carolina Panthers and returned to New Orleans.

Kirkwood has appeared in 32 career games between the regular and postseason and has recorded 26 receptions on 45 targets for 302 and four touchdowns. At 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, he adds some size to a position group that could use some to diversify the skillsets of the collective talent.
