The Baltimore Ravens announced that they’ve signed rookie TE Barrett Burns to a contract on Wednesday to replace Dennis Pitta, who was released with an injury waiver.
Burns, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Appalachian State a few months ago. This will be his first opportunity with an NFL team.
During his college career at App. State, Bruns caught 48 passes for 519 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns over the course of three seasons and 26 games.
