The Ravens have officially inked exclusive rights free agent safety Brynden Trawick.
Per exclusive rights free agent rules, Trawick, 24, had no other option but to re-sign with Baltimore if he wanted to continue in the NFL.
Last season, Trawick and wide receiver Marlon Brown were the only undrafted rookies to make the 53-man roster out of training camp. Trawick was kept mainly for his special teams potential. The Troy product is a fast, physical and big 6-foot-2, 215-pound free safety.
Trawick's biggest mistake in his rookie season was crashing into punt returner Jacoby Jones in Week 1 in Denver, injuring Jones' knee. Trawick lost awareness when looking at the man he was blocking.
The Ravens released Trawick after three games and re-signed him to their practice squad. They promoted him back to the 53-man roster on Oct. 30.
Trawick played in five of the final nine regular-season games and finished the year with eight special teams tackles, tied for the fourth most on the team. He'll likely again battle for a spot on the team via special teams and as a defensive reserve.
