Ravens Sign LB Jonathan Freeny, Place DE Brent Urban On Injured Reserve

The Baltimore Ravens announced Wednesday that they’ve signed LB Jonathan Freeny to a contract and placed DE Brent Urban on injured reserve.

  • The Ravens also re-signed TE Ryan Malleck to their practice squad.

Freeny, 28, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers back in 2011. He spent four years in Miami before signing on with the Patriots as an unrestricted free agent in 2015.

The Patriots signed him to a two-year contract extension coming out of the preseason last year but elected to cut him loose on Saturday as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

In 2016, Freeny appeared five games for the Patriots and recorded 10 tackles and a forced fumble.
