The Baltimore Ravens went out in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft and they got one of the more reliable receivers in the ACC in Wake Forest’s Michael Campanaro, and on Wednesday, they made sure that he’ll be sticking around for a while.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens and Campanaro have agreed to terms on a four-year deal that includes a signing bonus in excess of $67,000.
The River Hill graduate and seventh-round draft pick from Wake Forest is signing a four-year, $2.287 million contract that includes a $67,500 signing bonus, according to a source. The deal includes base salaries of $420,000, $510,000, $600,000 and $690,000.
In four years as a member of the Wake Forest football team, Campanaro caught 229 balls for 2,506 yards with 14 touchdowns. He was also a frequent contributor on special teams in his freshman and sophomore seasons.
Despite bringing in free agent Steve Smith this offseason, the Ravens and QB Joe Flacco could use the help in the wide receiver department, and they could come to find out very soon that they got a steal in Campanaro in the seventh round.
