Roundup: WR Seth Roberts signs with Ravens

Wide receiver Seth Roberts wasn't unemployed for long.

A day after being released by the Oakland Raiders, Roberts signed a one-year deal, pending a physical, with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced. ESPN first reported the news.

Whether he meets the criteria of the Ravens taking at-bats and swinging at the wide receiver spot remains to be seen, but there's little arguing Roberts lands in a good spot with an opportunity for playing time.

After parting ways with Michael Crabtree and watching John Brown sign with the Buffalo Bills during free agency, the Ravens have a clear need at a position currently led by Willie Snead and Chris Moore. Baltimore also has a pair of 2018 draft picks in Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott returing.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Roberts provides experience from four seasons in Oakland, where he totaled 158 catches for 1,826 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Here are other transactions we're monitoring from Friday:

  1. The Oakland Raiders announced the signing of safety Jordan Richards on Friday afternoon. Terms were not disclosed. Richards is a four-year vet who played 2018 with the Falcons, making a career-high 12 starts.
  1. The Cleveland Browns signed receiver Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi. This will be the wideout's first NFL job.
  1. The Chicago Bears announced the signing of exclusive rights player Rashaad Coward, an offensive lineman, on Friday.
  1. The New York Jets claimed former Giants wide receiver Quadree Henderson off waivers. Henderson did not catch a pass last year as a rookie but returned 14 punts and kickoffs. The Panthers also put in a claim for him, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source.
