Ravens Officially Sign Wide Receiver Demarcus Robinson

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (11) rushes against Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (22) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Jan. 2, 2022, in Cincinnati.

The Ravens have officially signed wide receiver Demarcus Robinson to a one-year deal following the team's trip to Arizona.

Robinson adds more experience and depth to Baltimore's receiving corps, as he's spent the past six seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and started 29 games over the past three years. Robinson was signed by the Las Vegas Raiders this offseason and thought to be a potential starter, but he was among their roster cuts a week ago.

The veteran is diving into the Ravens playbook so he wasn't able to do too much in practice Tuesday, but Head Coach John Harbaugh was still impressed with what he saw. Harbaugh said he expects Robinson will play in Saturday's preseason finale against the Washington Commanders.

"He caught a really nice seam route off an RPO, just went up and got it," Harbaugh said. "We played against him all these years and he's a big, strong receiver, very strong hands, catch radius."

The Ravens are still looking to fill out the likely final two spots in their receiver room. Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay and James Proche II will be the top three wide receivers, but the group behind them is a question mark with Tylan Wallace, Binjimen Victor, Shemar Bridges, Makai Polk and others standing out at various times.

At 6-foot-1, 203 pounds, Robinson fits the mold of the bigger bodied wide receiver the Ravens have been looking for to help round out their receiver corps. Robinson is now the elder stateman in the room at 27 years old. He's never missed a game in his six seasons.

In 2019 and 2020, Robinson averaged more than 450 yards and scored seven touchdowns. Last season, he posted 25 catches for 264 yards and three scores.

The Ravens have seen firsthand that Robinson can be a weapon. In four games against Baltimore, Robinson has 16 catches for 131 yards and two touchdowns. He scored a 33-yard touchdown last season at M&T Bank Stadium.

Robinson was a fourth-round pick of the Chiefs in 2016 out of Florida. He hails from Fort Valley, Ga., the same town where Bridges went to college (Fort Valley State).
