Ravens rookie inside linebacker Arthur Brown inked his four-year rookie contract Thursday afternoon.
Brown is the Ravens' highest draft pick to sign thus far. First-round safety Matt Elam and third-round defensive tackle Brandon Williams are the only ones left unsigned.
Despite signing his deal, Brown won't be able to take the field for at least a couple more weeks. He underwent sports hernia surgery after rookie minicamp the first weekend of May.
"He's recovering from that," Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "It's a four-to-six week deal, and he should be fine soon enough."
The Ravens moved up six spots to snatch Brown in the second round at 56th overall. The speedy inside linebacker is expected to compete for a starting job this year.
