I wrote last week about the Ravens signing wide receiver James Hardy, a former second-round pick, to a reserve/future contract.
Today, the team officially announced their deal with Hardy, and also announced future contracts for seven other players who have spent time on the Ravens' practice squad this season.
Offensive tackle Brady Bond, quarterback Hunter Cantwell, cornerback Danny Gorrer, wide receiver Justin Harper, outside linebacker Albert McClellan, running back Curtis Steele and offensive guard/tackle Andre Ramsey are the seven other players inked to reserve/future contracts.
This locks these players up for next season. Only players who were not on an NFL team's active roster when the regular season ended are eligible for reserve/futures contracts.
