The New England Patriots have signed former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams today, according to a league source.

Williams recently tried out for the Patriots and Oakland Raiders.

He has recovered from a hamstring injury that initially prompted the Ravens to place him on injured reserve prior to reaching an injury settlement.

Williams is a good special-teams contributor who adds depth at the receiver position.

He played collegiately at the University of Maryland.
