The Baltimore Ravens needed to add a wide receiver with Jacoby Jones expected to be out at least a month with a knee injury.

Is it going to be Brandon Lloyd? Austin Collie? What about Josh Cribbs?

No, it looks like Tandon Doss is coming back to the Ravens, according to The Baltimore Sun. Please tone down your excitement.

Doss, the team's disappointing fourth-round pick, has seven catches in 20 career regular-season games. He didn't do much in the first three preseason games before making five catches for 75 yards.

The Ravens are obviously looking for someone who has knowledge of the offense and provides depth. They weren't looking for someone to leapfrog either Marlon Brown or Brandon Stokley as one of the team's top three receivers.

Baltimore is carrying six wide receivers, but only four are healthy. Deonte Thompson has been sidelined with a foot injury since the preseason opener. Let's see how many opportunities Doss gets in his second chance with the Ravens.

UPDATE: The Ravens officially announced the re-signing of Doss. To make room, they released linebacker Robert James, who was claimed by the Ravens on waivers from the Falcons. He played on special teams Thursday night but didn't make a tackle.
