Carolina Panthers re-sign WR Keith Kirkwood

A new team has signed wide receiver who was previously with the New Orleans Saints. The former wide receiver Keith Kirkwood of New Orleans has come to terms with the Baltimore Ravens, the team said on Friday.

Kirkwood, 29, spent two separate stints with the Saints, totaling four seasons with the team. In 2013, he began his college career at Hawaii, and he played his remaining three seasons at Temple. He had a total of 87 receptions, 1,319 yards, and 11 touchdowns in his final two years at Temple.

Kirkwood would end up in the Saints after going undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. As an undrafted rookie, he would join the team and participate in nine games, catching 15 catches for 217 yards and three touchdowns. The next season, he would play in just one game with the Saints before being signed as a restricted free agent by the Carolina Panthers in the 2020 offseason.

Could Carolina Panthers WR Keith Kirkwood make bigger impact in 2022?

Kirkwood spent two years as a player for Carolina, appearing in four games and hauling in four receptions for thirty yards. After spending the previous two seasons primarily on special teams, he would rejoin the Saints in 2022. Kirkwood has seven receptions for 55 yards and a score during an eighteen-game span in 2022–2023.

Kirkwood joins a Baltimore Ravens team that finished 21st in passing production the previous season and boasts quarterback Lamar Jackson as the reigning MVP. He will contend with Nelson Agholor, Devontez Walker, Tylan Wallace, Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers, and former Saint Deonte Harty for a position on the depth chart.

Before the offseason, it was not anticipated that the Saints would re-sign Kirkwood. In free agency, New Orleans signed wide receivers Stanley Morgan Jr., Equanimeous St. Brown, and Cedrick Wilson. The team also selected Pitt Panthers wide receiver Bub Means with a fifth-round pick. Lynn Bowden Jr. and Michael Thomas, two former wide receivers for New Orleans, are still available as free agents.
