Woodhead's season was cut short last year after suffering an ACL injury in Week 2. The 32-year-old spent the past four years in San Diego, where he was a threat coming out of the backfield.

In 2015, he had 80 catches for 755 yards and six touchdowns in the passing game. The Ravens could use a boost at running back after finishing 28th in the league in rushing yards last season.

Woodhead, who will be joining his fourth team, first made a name for himself with the Patriots, spending two-plus years in New England.
