Hymes signs with Jaguars

OWINGS MILLS -- Former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Randy Hymes, the former undrafted Grambling quarterback known for his penchant for the one-handed catch, signed a two-year contract Thursday with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Hymes' agent, Ken Sarnoff, confirmed the signing. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

"Randy is excited about the opportunity to play for the Jaguars," Sarnoff said.

An unrestricted free agent, Hymes played for the Ravens for the past four seasons, registering 43 career receptions for 578 yards and four touchdowns.

Hymes, who played quarterback and receiver at Grambling where he also was a member of the basketball and track and field squads, caught a career-high 26 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns in 2004 when he started a career-high seven games.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound native of Galveston, Texas played in every game last season, but his playing time was reduced after Baltimore acquired two-time Pro Bowl wideout Derrick Mason and drafted wide receiver. Mark Clayton in the first round. Hymes started three games last season, catching 11 passes for two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Baltimore agreed to terms with undrafted rookie linebacker Ricky Foley, who played at Canada's York College. One of the top selections in the Canadian Football League's college draft. Foley tried out at last weekend's rookie minicamp.
