The Baltimore Ravens announced today that they've signed free agent wide receiver Joe Horn Jr. In a corresponding move, the team released linebacker Ejuan Price. 

 If the name sounds familiar, that's because it is. Horn is the son of four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Joe Horn, who spent seven seasons with the New Orleans Saints. 

Horn participated in the Ravens' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. He reportedly impressed Head Coach John Harbaugh, enough for the Ravens to give Horn a chance to compete in OTA's and mandatory minicamp. 

Horn caught 15 passes for 246 yards at Missouri Western State University in 2018. He previously played at Northeast Mississippi Community College, totaling 51 catches for 690 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons. 

Horn will have a tough road ahead to secure a spot Week 1, but history is on his side. At least one undrafted rookie has made the 53-man roster in Baltimore for 15 straight seasons. Not to mention, the Ravens revamped their wide receiver core this offseason by signing Seth Roberts to a one-year deal and spending first and third-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft on Marquise "Hollywood" Brown and Miles Boykin. 

Horn won't emerge as a top receiving option, but his best route to the 53-man roster could be as a special teams gunner or returner.
