Ravens Wide Receiver/Returner Michael Campanaro Heading to Tennessee

Posted Apr 10, 2018

A seventh-round pick in 2014, Michael Campanaro spent four mostly injury-riddled seasons with his hometown team. Now he’s agreed to a one-year deal with the Titans.


The Ravens’ local boy is heading out of town.

Free-agent wide receiver/returner Michael Campanaro has agreed to a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, the team announced.

Campanaro sent a goodbye message thanking those in the organization, coaches and fans.

“These last four years have been a dream come true playing for my hometown team,” wrote Campanaro, who played at nearby River Hill High School.

“More than anything, I will miss the relationships I’ve built with my brothers in the locker room, but I’m excited for this next chapter. Thank you!”

The Ravens traded back into the 2014 NFL Draft to select Campanaro in the seventh round. He immediately showed flashes of being a dynamic playmaker on offense and as a returner, but injuries often set him back.

Campanaro played in just 11 games in his first three seasons and spent two months off the team’s roster in 2016 as he recuperated from a calf injury. He also missed time with hamstring, back, quad and rib injuries.

He finally stayed healthy for most of last season, playing in 13 games and catching a career-high 19 passes for 173 yards and one touchdown. He led the AFC with 10.8 yards per punt return, including a 77-yard touchdown.

Campanaro’s departure means the Ravens will be looking for a new punt returner and perhaps more help at slot receiver, though many different types of wideouts can line up in that spot.

Campanaro was the final piece of Baltimore’s wide receiver shake-up. Jeremy Maclin was released and Mike Wallace signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. Wallace, Maclin and Campanaro combined for 111 catches last year and were the team’s top three wideouts in receptions.

The Ravens already added Michael Crabtree and Smokey Brown in free agency and have reportedly explored other available options, including Willie Snead and Eric Decker. Baltimore is expected to draft at least one wide receiver later this month.
