Ravens Sign Tyree; Cut Curtis

The Ravens signed David Tyree Tuesday afternoon after working out the free-agent wide receiver Monday.

Tyree, 29, who spent six seasons with the New York Giants, is best remembered for making a leaping 32-yard catch by pinning the football against his helmet on the Giants’ game-winning drive in the 2008 Super Bowl.

“We’ve been looking at David Tyree for weeks now,” coach John Harbaugh said during his weekly radio program on WBAL 1090 AM Tuesday evening. “He came out of training camp with a couple of issues, and he’s been working hard to get those things healthy. We have had a ton of respect for him over the years as a special-teams player, as a wide receiver, as a football player.

A noted special-teams player who made 85 tackles in six seasons with the Giants, Tyree could usher Demetrius Williams to inactive status.

To make room for Tyree, the Ravens cut tight end Tony Curtis.

I only see this move as a way to bolster special teams. I also agree that it’s pretty clear that Demetrius Williams has worn out his welcome here since he can’t seem to find the field.
