OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens have signed former Super Bowl hero David Tyree, who played in 73 games with the New York Giants before being cut last month.
Tyree is expected to contribute to special teams, and could see time at wide receiver.
Tyree made one of the most memorable catches in Super Bowl history in 2008 against the New England Patriots, pulling down a 32-yard pass on a third-and-five by trapping the ball against his helmet. The reception kept alive a drive that resulted in the game-winning touchdown.
Tyree missed last season with a hamstring injury, and this summer missed two preseason games because of a series of injuries.
After adding Tyree to the active roster Tuesday, the Ravens placed tight end Tony Curtis on waivers.
