The Ravens have signed former Cincinnati Bengals safety Tom Nelson and waived injured undrafted rookie wide receiver Cam Worthy.
Nelson, 28, is going to attempt to play wide receiver for the Ravens. He tried out for the Ravens on Tuesday along with quarterbacks D.J. Williams, Trent Steelman and Austin Trainer, according to NFL sources.
Nelson was last with the Carolina Panthers during training camp last year, but didn't make the regular-season roster.
He played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011, appearing in four games before being released. He also had a stint with the Chicago Bears in 2013.
Nelson started three games for the Bengals as a rookie in 2009 after going undrafted out of Illinois State, recording 25 tackles and one interception. He has 30 tackles in 24 career games.
While with the Bengals, Nelson was featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks" program.
Nelson, 5 feet 11 and 200 pounds, was released by the Bengals the following year after he played just eight games and started none. The Illinois native was a three-time all-conference selection in the Gateway Conference at Illinois State.
