Baltimore Ravens trying to bolster thin receiving corps

The Baltimore Ravens continue to watch receivers drop like flies. After an offseason that saw them lose Anquan Boldin to trade, Dennis Pitta & Deont Thompson to injury, and Ed Dickson to a hamstring tear that clearly limited him in the team’s opening 49-24 loss to the Denver Broncos, the last thing they needed was for another receiver to go down with an injury.

But then Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones sprained his medial collateral ligament in his right knee during the loss, and now he could miss significant time.

The Ravens have now re-signed receiver Tandon Doss.

The Ravens cut Doss during the final major roster cutdown before the season. Since being released, Doss worked out for the Green Bay Packers and wasn’t signed to a contract.
A 2011 fourth-round draft pick from Indiana, Doss caught seven passes for 123 yards and one touchdown last season.

In order to make room for Doss, the team cut reserve linebacker and special teams player Robert James.
