Ravens Agree to Terms With 5th Round WR David Reed

The Baltimore Ravens announced that they have agreed to terms on a three-year deal with fifth-round wide receiver David Reed.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but based on slotting, Reed's deal is likely worth $1.349 million dollars, with a signing bonus of around $135,000.

After setting the national junior college single-season record for receptions (111) in 2007, Reed transferred to the University of Utah. Reed (6-0, 191) made an immediate impact as a kick returner, averaging 25.4 yards in 2008, earning honorable mention All-Mountain West Conference honors.

Last season, Reed moved into the starting lineup, and in 13 games, caught 81 passes for 1,188 yards and 5 touchdowns, earning first-team All-Mountain West honors. During his two seasons for the Utes, Reed caught 106 passes for 1,615 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Reed ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds at the Combine, and posted a 37” vertical leap. Reed is expected to return kicks and play in a backup role for the Ravens this season.

Reed is the third player from the Ravens' seven-member 2010 draft class to sign or agree to terms on a contract. Fourth-round tight end Dennis Pitta and fifth-round defensive lineman Arthur Jones signed earlier this week.
