Undrafted free agents 2014: Baltimore Ravens next to bring in Jerry Rice Jr.

According to a report from Fox Sports, the Baltimore Ravens will be the next team to bring in the son of legendary wide receiver Jerry Rice, Jerry Rice Jr., for a workout after the UNLV wideout went undrafted this past weekend in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Rice transferred to UNLV prior to last season after he was a member of the UCLA Bruins. He caught 11 passes last season for for a touchdown in 11 games.

The younger Rice will have a three-day tryout with the Ravens, who actually can use the wide receiver help, should he impress them enough to possibly earn a spot on the roster for head coach John Harbaugh, QB Joe Flacco and company.

It was thought after the draft that he might actually be signed by the organization that his father had a big hand in making famous, the San Francisco 49ers, however that did not come to fruition in the end.

After the draft, the Ravens also signed Tennessee-Martin’s Jeremy Butler and Northern Colorado’s Jace Davis, so there will be some competition that he’ll have to deal with in addition to the presence of their seventh-round draft pick, Wake Forest’s Michael Campanaro.
