Ravens Sign Former Patriots Defensive Lineman


The Ravens filled their open spot on the 53-man roster, signing a defensive lineman who used to play for their next opponent.

Ufomba Kamalu has been signed by Baltimore off the New England Patriots' practice squad. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound Kamalu has played in 15 regular season games and registered 12 tackles and three sacks. He was an undrafted free agent from Miami in 2016 who has played with both the Patriots and Houston Texans. He was waived by the Patriots during final roster cuts in September before being signed to the practice squad.

Kamalu will have an opportunity to help Baltimore's interior pass rush, joining Jihad Ward and Zach Sieler as recent additions to the 53-man roster on the defensive line. Kamalu is the second former Patriots player to join Baltimore's roster this week. Former Patriots safety Jordan Richards was signed Thursday by the Ravens. Richards replaced former Ravens cornerback and special teams standout Justin Bethel, who signed with the Patriots after Baltimore released him Tuesday.

The Ravens have a bye this weekend and host the Patriots Nov. 3 on Sunday Night Football.
