The New England Patriots have signed former Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams to a one-year contract, according to a league source.
The former University of Maryland and Poly player worked out recently for the Patriots and Oakland Raiders. Williams was removed from the Ravens' injured reserve list in September when the team agreed to an injury settlement with him.
Williams suffered a strained hamstring against the St. Louis Rams during the preseason finale. He caught a touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the preseason opener and recovered a blocked punt for a score against Tampa Bay.
In his career, Williams has four receptions for 46 yards -- all in 2011.
