Rex Ryan sure loves ex-Ravens.

Eron Riley, who earned a spot on the Ravens' practice squad 2009 as an undrafted wide receiver from Duke, was signed today by the Jets off the Broncos' practice squad.

The Jets were a little thin at wide receiver after trading former Raven Derrick Mason to the Houston Texans last week.

Riley is big (6-foot-3, 207 pounds), but not particularly fast. At Duke, he played 45 career games (40 starts), catching 144 passes for 2,413 yards (16.8 avg.) and 22 touchdowns.

Ex-Ravens defensive coordinator Ryan never saw Riley in Baltimore because he was already head coach of the Jets.
