The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed exclusive rights free agents Keenan Reynolds and De’Ondre Wesley to new contracts.
Wesley is a 6-foot-6, 326 pound right tackle who was signed by the Baltimore Ravens after going undrafted in 2015 out of Brigham Young. He played in seven games mostly on special teams while seeing only six snaps from scrimmage at right tackle his rookie season. Wesley’s 2016 season was cut short by an injury that landed him on season-ending injured reserve before the season began, but He’s expected to be fully healthy for offseason practices. The team will give him the opportunity to earn a larger role along the offensive line next season after losing right tackle Ricky Wagner to the Detroit Lions in Free Agency.

In the 2016 NFL Draft, the Ravens drafted Reynolds in the sixth round with the 182nd overall pick after converting to a receiver for his pro day. He was released by the Ravens during final team cuts and was signed to the practice squad the following day. He was then promoted to the active roster on December 30 for the final game of the season which ensured he would be an exclusive rights free agent at the end of the season. Reynolds played college football for the Navy Midshipmen as a quarterback, where he finished his career with the NCAA Division I record 88 career touchdowns aa an NCAA FBS record 4,559 rushing yards the most ever by a quarterback. Due to his accolades while at Navy, the Academy announced that Reynolds would be the last player to wear No. 19 as Reynolds joins the list of Roger Staubach (No. 12), Joe Bellino (No. 27) and Napoleon McCallum (No. 30) whose numbers have been retired by the school.
