On Wednesday, May 13 2009, the Baltimore Ravens made an agreement with free agent wide receiver Kelly Washington, who played for the Patriots for the past two seasons after playing four years in Cincinnati.

Washington attended a three-day tryout last week with the Ravens and wowed the coaching staff with a one-handed catch and several catches over cornerback Dominique Foxworth. Free agent wide receivers D.J. Hackett, Tab Perry, and Jerry Porter were also invited to training camp for an audition with Baltimore but Hackett declined the invitation to try out with the Texans, and Perry and Porter did not make a good impression of themselves with management.

Washington also worked out with the Redskins prior to attending the Ravens' training camp in Owings Mills but stated he wanted to play for contender and would consider all of his options before signing with a team.

At 6'3", Washington brings height to a vertically-challenged Baltimore receiving corps and is also a standout special teams player. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed and the deal is not expected to be announced officially until next Monday, after Washington passes his physical.
