After losing one defensive lineman to injury last week, the Ravens are adding another. The team announced today that they’ve signed defensive lineman Jovan Swann. The team also waived/injured defensive tackle Xavier Kelly and wide receiver Donte Sylencieux.
Swann had a standout career at Stanford, and he earned a handful of Pac-12 All-Academic nods during his stint with the Cardinal. He spent the 2020 campaign at Indiana, finishing the season with three QB hits. During his collegiate career, the lineman compiled 8.5 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss.
Swann ultimately went undrafted during April’s draft, and he’s already bounced around the NFL a bit. He spent rookie camp with the Steelers before getting a workout with the Texans.
Kelly, a fellow undrafted rookie, suffered a season-ending Achilles injury last week, opening a spot for Swann. The team may not be finished adding, however; we learned earlier today that the team worked out defensive tackle Darius Kilgo.
Sylencieux joined the Ravens earlier this offseason, reuniting him with high school teammate Lamar Jackson.
