Ravens fans will never forget the man who caught the first touchdown pass in the 2001 Super Bowl win over the New York Giants. That man was wider receiver Brandon Stokley. Since leaving the Ravens a few season after the Super Bowl, Stokley hopped from team to team, not really finding much success. But now the 37-year old receiver is back in Baltimore.
Stokley's most successful year after the Ravens came in 2004. He had 68 receptions, 1,077 yards, and 10 touchdown playing under Peyton Manning in Indianapolis.
It remains to be seen if the wide receiver has what it takes to help the Ravens. It's still unknown why the Ravens signed him again. Maybe Ozzie Newsome is still looking for players to fill the void that Dennis Pitta's injury and the release of Anquan Boldin left. Stokley obviously won't be as productive and dominant as he was during the Super Bowl year, but he'll be another solid option for quarterback Joe Flacco.
