The Ravens worked out free-agent wide receiver David Tyree on Tuesday and asked him to take a physical, which he passed.
The team isn't expected to get in contact with Tyree until next week at the earliest. Players who aren't on the season-opening roster aren't guaranteed a full year's salary.
General manager Ozzie Newsome confirmed on the team's Web site Tyree's tryout.
This marks the Ravens' first attempt to upgrade their wide receiver group since the final major cutdown this past weekend.
Tyree, 29, was cut by the New York Giants just two years after being one of their Super Bowl stars. The 6-foot, 206-pound receiver is best known for making the "helmet catch" on the Giants' game-winning drive.
Last season, Tyree was placed on injured reserve because of a knee injury suffered in training camp. A sixth-round pick in 2003, he has 54 receptions in 73 career games.
The St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs were interested in Tyree, but the Ravens have been the most aggressive. The Ravens also looked at Tyree when he was a restricted free agent in 2006.
The Ravens currently have four receivers on their roster: Derrick Mason, Mark Clayton, Demetrius Williams and Kelley Washington.
When asked Monday whether the Ravens were in talks about adding another wide receiver, coach John Harbaugh said: "We're always in talks to make our team better. You know that's the answer I'm going to give you. We can play with four [receivers] because with our offense, we can put any number of players out there that we want."
Former Ravens kicker Matt Stover wasn't waiting by the phone when the Ravens cut down to 53 players during the weekend. "You knew they were going with Steve Hauschka, and I hope Steve has a good season," Stover said. "I haven't said anything during this entire process, and I won't because I have nothing but good things to stay about the Ravens and my career with that organization." ... Tight end Davon Drew, a fifth-round pick this year by the Ravens, was injury-waived by the Miami Dolphins.
