Ravens waived TE Davon Drew.

Drew was promoted from the practice squad in Week 15 last season, but failed to appear in a game. Also waived or released by the Ravens today were RB Jalen Parmele, LB Prescott Burgess and C Tim Barnes.

Ravens promoted TE Davon Drew and waived OG Bryan Mattison.

Drew's promotion indicates that the Ravens may not be optimistic about Todd Heap (hamstring) returning for Week 16. Mattison is DC Greg's son.

Ravens TE Davon Drew has been passed on the depth chart by rookies Ed Dickson, Dennis Pitta.

Drew was a fifth-round pick in 2009, but failed to develop while spending all of last season on the practice squad. Dickson and Pitta will battle to be Todd Heap's heir apparent.

Ravens signed TE Davon Drew, WRs Eron Riley and Maurice Price, DE/OLB Will VanDeSteeg, DL/OL Bryan Mattison, and OTs Stefan Rodgers and Joe Reitz to reserve/future contracts.

All spent 2009 on the practice squad. Mattison is the son of Ravens defensive coordinator Greg Mattison. Drew is the most intriguing prospect. He has vertical skills and narrowly missed out on a roster spot last summer. With L.J. Smith likely to exit, he'll have a real chance to make the Ravens.

Ravens re-signed TE Davon Drew to the practice squad.

It's odd that Drew tried out for the Ravens on Monday considering he was in camp all summer. The fifth-round pick will be a developmental prospect and could take L.J. Smith's spot next year.
Tue, Sep 15, 2009 04:30:00 PM

The Ravens brought free agent TE Davon Drew in for a tryout Monday.

Drew, Baltimore's fifth-round pick in April, was claimed off waivers by Miami in early September before being let go with an injury settlement. He's obviously got talent, as two high-quality organizations have shown interest in him.

Dolphins waived/injured TE Davon Drew.

Coach Tony Sparano heaped glowing praise on Drew after the team got him via waivers over the weekend, but he must've reported injured. The Fins may be on the lookout for another tight end with David Martin out for 2009.
Tue, Sep 8, 2009 06:39:00 PM

Dolphins claimed TE Davon Drew off waivers from the Ravens.

Drew, a fifth-round rookie, has a lot of upside as a catch-first tight end with vertical skills and underrated blocking ability. The move doesn't bode well for either David Martin, Joey Haynes, or late-round pick John Nalbone.
Sun, Sep 6, 2009 04:48:00 PM

Ravens released TE Davon Drew.

Drew was the Ravens' fifth-round pick this year. The real surprise is that Todd Heap and L.J. Smith both made it through training camp in one piece. That's called an unlucky break for Drew.
Sat, Sep 5, 2009 05:39:00 PM

Ravens fifth-round TE Davon Drew was placed on the non-football injury list after flunking his physical.

He must not have been too out of shape, as he was taken off the list on Wednesday morning. Drew made a fine showing during offseason practices while Todd Heap and L.J. Smith were sidelined. He'll now return to third on the depth chart.
Wed, Jul 29, 2009 10:50:00 AM

Ravens signed fifth-round TE Davon Drew to a three-year contract, including a $139,250 signing bonus.

Drew impressed in spring practice and should have a real chance to be Baltimore's top pass-catching tight end down the road. Todd Heap has declined into a one-dimensional blocker and L.J. Smith is on a one-year deal.
Thu, Jun 4, 2009 04:26:00 PM

Rookie TE Davon Drew has "caught the eye of several Ravens coaches" during offseason workouts, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Drew has vertical speed and showed good hands at OTAs. His blocking will need work, but we wouldn't be surprised if he cuts heavily into L.J. Smith's playing time by midseason. Assuming Smith isn't already hurt by then.
Mon, Jun 1, 2009 12:49:00 PM

Ravens selected East Carolina TE Davon Drew with the No. 149 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Coming from a run-first ECU attack, Drew has blocking experience and took off as pass catcher in 2008, hauling in 32 passes for 536 yards (16.8 YPC) in his final eight games. Drew won't play much in year one, but L.J. Smith is only on a one-year contract and Todd Heap is slowing down considerably.
