=== 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.
