The Baltimore Ravens signed veteran wide receiver Brandon Stokley to a one-year contract on Sunday.

The 37-year old Stokley was drafted by the Ravens in the fourth round of the 1999 NFL draft and caught a touchdown during Baltimore's win over the New York Giants in the 2001 Super Bowl. Since leaving the Ravens following the 2002 season, Stokley has spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Giants.

He has 384 catches for 5,224 yards and 39 touchdowns in 14 NFL seasons.

"He gives us experience," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "He gives us a guy that can catch balls in the slot. He's done that over a number of years, and he's done a great job of that, so that's an asset for us."

Stokley had 45 catches for 544 yards and five touchdowns for the Broncos last year.

He will be part of a group that includes Jacoby Jones, Tandon Doss and Deonte Thompson competing for playing time.

"I feel like I can move the chains," Stokley said. "I feel like I can help the club get in the end zone, keep the offense on the field and be successful."
