The Ravens have reached a three-year deal with undrafted East Carolina wide receiver Cam Worthy, according to a source.
The deal includes a $2,500 signing bonus.
Worthy was cleared during the Indianapolis medical recheck after fracturing his foot in the Medal of Honor all-star game.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder has run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds in the past, but was unable to work out for NFL teams this spring or at the NFL scouting combine.
Worthy was selected to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Worthy caught 47 passes for 886 yards and three touchdowns last season.
In two seasons, Worthy had 66 catches for 1,181 yards and five touchdowns.
In the Birmingham Bowl against Florida, Worthy caught eight passes for 130 yards and a touchdown.
Worthy played opposite record-setting wide receiver Justin Hardy.
In testing at the school, Worthy had a 43-inch vertical leap, a 10-9 broad jump, a 335-pound bench press, 465-pound squat and a 308-pound power clean.
Worthy caught 19 passes...Read more

Maxx Williams hasn't set foot on an NFL practice field, yet is getting a ton of early praise from analysts and fans.
Some of that is because Williams was believed to be the top tight end in the 2015 draft. Some also comes from the sheer joy that was generated when the Ravens essentially stole the Minnesota tight end from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Williams was effective but not spectacular for the Golden Gophers, catching 36 passes for 569 yards and eight touchdowns last season. But his new team has a darn-good track record when it comes to selecting tight ends high in the draft.
Before this year's draft, the Ravens had selected nine tight ends since 1996, including four in the fourth round or higher. Each of those players, at the least, became solid contributors and a couple became stars.
Todd Heap, selected 31st overall in 2001 out of Arizona State, leads the list. In 10 seasons with the Ravens, Heap made 467 receptions for 5,492 yards (both second-most in franchise history) and scored...Read more
Terrence Magee operated in a versatile role for the LSU Tigers, lining up at running back, wide receiver and returning kicks. A high school quarterback, Magee even completed a 44-yard pass in a game against Mississippi State.
He is hoping to provide similar versatility for the Ravens after agreeing to a three-year contract (which includes a $3,000 signing bonus) as an undrafted free agent.
"I'm an all-around back and my biggest attribute is my ability to play on third downs and protect the quarterback and win matchups with linebackers," Magee told The Baltimore Sun. "I have all-around skills."
Magee chose the Ravens over the Atlanta Falcons and several other teams after talking with running backs coach Thomas Hammock. He rushed for 1,330 career rushing yards and a dozen touchdowns.
"I was very excited to go to the Ravens," Magee said. "I was kind of unsure where I was going to go, but, after talking it over with my agent and talking to coach Hammock, that was the best fit for me."
Former Morgan State cornerback Joe Rankin was invited to the Cleveland Browns' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to his agent, Scott Bergman.
Former Kentucky outside linebacker TraVaughn Paschal, an Arundel graduate, has been invited to the Buffalo Bills' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to a source.
Rankin worked overnight for several months as a forklift operator this past year, toiling away to save up enough money to train for another shot at the NFL.
Rankin went undrafted last year, participated in the Ravens' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis and was not signed.
"I'm definitely very hungry and excited," Rankin said in a telephone interview. "I've been training and trying to better myself to give it another go and hopefully put up some good numbers and grab the attention of NFL scouts.
"I was working overnight so I could train during the day. I did that for five months to save enough money to devote myself full time to training. I'm taking all of the experiences...Read more
