The Baltimore Ravens have signed former Notre Dame Fighting Irish running back Cierre Wood. He signed a reserve/future contract with the team.
He signed with the team earlier this month. However, his deal wasn’t approved and he was declared a free agent by the NFL.
However, after refiling his deal with the league, his signing has become official.
According to the Baltimore Sun, he wasn’t given a ‘credited year’ when he was released by the Houston Texans after his rookie season. He’ll sign a one-year, $495,000 contract with the Ravens.
Besides the stint with the Texans, he also had a stint with the New England Patriots. He spent a little more than a month with the Pats after signing with the team on Nov. 5 and being cut on Dec. 26.
He was released by the Texans in Oct. after they said he violated team rules, along with fellow rookie defensive end Sam Montgomery and outside linebacker Willie Jefferson. The team allege that all three of them were smoking marijuana in a team hotel the night before a game with the Kansas City Chiefs.
He had three carries and nine yards with the Texans. Plus, the three have said they were only smoking a cigar at the time.
