                 === Ravens sign Shiancoe to fill TE void ===
 
 Owings  Mills, MD  (Sports Network)  -  The Baltimore  Ravens signed  Visanthe
 Shiancoe  to a one-year contract on Sunday, less than 24 hours after tight end
 Dennis Pitta suffered a potential season-ending hip injury.
 
 Shiancoe,  33,  saw limited action for  the New England Patriots last year but
 recorded  2,677  receiving yards and 27  touchdowns over nine seasons with the
 New York Giants (2003-06) and Minnesota Vikings (2007-11).
 
 Shiancoe was on the practice field Sunday, where one day before Pitta collided
 with safety James Ihedigbo and disclosed his hip.
 
 "If  it  turns out that I  am out for the  season, I have confidence for other
 teammates  to  step up and do  their part. Keep  the faith!" Pitta said on his
 Facebook account Sunday.
