The Ravens have re-signed veteran wide receiver Deonte Thompson to their practice squad and cut defensive tackle A.J. Pataiali'i.

Thompson's practice squad salary will be more than the usual $6,300 per week, according to a source.

Thompson cleared waivers Thursday, one day after being released for the second time in five days. He caught three touchdown passes during the preseason and 10 passes for 96 yards last season.

Thompson is possibly the fastest player on the team with 4.21-second speed in the 40-yard dash.

He was released Saturday when the Ravens promoted running back Fitzgerald Toussaint from the practice squad and then re-signed Tuesday after he cleared waivers.
