The Eagles have signed Givens to a one-year contract, NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Givens adds depth to an Eagles wideout corps that also includes Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and and Josh Huff. Though Givens -- who can also contribute as a kick returner -- recorded a modest total of 20 catches for 353 yards and a TD over 15 games for the Rams and Ravens last season, it's worth noting that the 26-year-old pass-catcher enjoyed his most productive NFL season as a rookie in 2012, while working with former St.Louis and current Philadelphia starting QB, Sam Bradford.

Givens caught 19 passes for 346 yards and a touchdown on 53 targets in 12 games with the Ravens in 2015.

EDGE Analysis

Traded from the Rams to the Ravens for a conditional draft pick in early October, Givens did nothing to suggest that he's a part of the team's future, whereas Kamar Aiken and Jeremy Butler both impressed late in the season. Even if he returns in 2016, Givens will face an uphill battle to earn a roster spot.

Givens was targeted five times, but managed just a 17- yard catch in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

With a career yards-per-catch average of over 16.5, Givens' value is based solely around his ability to get deep. From Weeks 7 through 13, Givens wasn't catching many passes, but was gaining chunks of yardage when he did, recording a reception of 20 or more yards in five of six games. With Jimmy Clausen under center, Givens has caught just one pass over the past two weeks. Should the Ravens switch over to the cannon-armed Ryan Mallett to close the season, Givens speed may be put to better use.

Givens wasn't targeted in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Givens still played quite a few offensive snaps, but he already had his turn to make an impression, and the Ravens are now evaluating other young wide receivers. Givens may be the best-known name among the bunch, but former UDFAs Jeremy Butler and Daniel Brown have shown more promise.

Givens caught just three of his eight targets for 68 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami.

EDGE Analysis

It was encouraging to see Givens receive eight targets, but the 26-year-old receiver still only has four catches in the two games started by quarterback Matt Schaub. Givens may struggle to find room against the talented Seahawks secondary next week.

Givens caught one pass for 48 yards on three targets in Monday's 33-27 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Givens took advantage of a coverage breakdown for his lone reception of the game, and he could have had a touchdown if Matt Schaub hadn't underthrown the ball. Though he should continue to get some shots down the field, Givens isn't getting enough targets to warrant consideration outside of very deep formats. He and Jeremy Butler have essentially been Co-No. 2 wideouts the last two games.

Givens caught just two of the seven balls thrown his way for 25 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Quarterback Joe Flacco tried to keep Givens involved by throwing to him a healthy seven times, but the veteran receiver failed to capitalize. Givens hasn't been much of a factor this season, even with his increased role in the wake of Steve Smith's season-ending Achilles injury.

Givens caught four passes for 37 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Sunday's 22-20 loss to the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

With Steve Smith (Achilles) out for the season, Givens and Kamar Aiken were the starting wide receivers. Givens struggled to get open against man coverage, but he did find a soft spot in a zone for an easy 14-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Although Aiken is the clear lead target, Givens surely earned himself at least one more week as the No. 2 wide receiver. The matchup will be much tougher this time around, with Baltimore facing the Rams instead of the Jaguars.

Givens is listed as the starter across from Kamar Aiken on the Ravens' latest depth chart, the team's official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Steve Smith (Achilles) out for the season, the Ravens will likely look to Givens for big plays and to Aiken for short and intermediate gains. Not that both players won't get a variety of opportunities, but Aiken is the clear favorite to lead the team in targets, especially with Givens likely to be on a short leash in the starting role. Givens has mostly been unimpressive to this point in his career, but his deep speed could mesh well with Joe Flacco's big arm.

With Steve Smith (Achilles) out for the season, Givens is one of five healthy wide receivers on Baltimore's active roster, the team's official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Givens hauled in three of his four targets for 57 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers, receiving extra playing after Steve Smith (Achilles) was injured. Smith's snaps and targets will likely be divided among a slew of players, but Givens and Kamar Aiken are the most intriguing options of the bunch. The Ravens have a Week 9 bye, followed by a Week 10 home game against the Jaguars.
