With the Ravens being so beat up on the offensive line after just three days of full-team training camp, the team signed offensive lineman Devin Tyler.

Tyler started at Temple as a 215-pound defensive end, but managed to gain 93 pounds during his collegiate career. By the time his senior campaign rolled around, he excelled on the offensive line, propelling the Owls to their first bowl game (Eagle Bank) in over 30 years.
Tyler was one of three offensive lineman who tried out for the Ravens on Sunday, the identity of the other two were undisclosed by the team.
