Former New York Giants tight end Eric Tomlinson, who many anticipated would return to the team’s practice squad, now has a new home.

The Baltimore Ravens announced on Monday afternoon that they had signed Tomlinson, who filled multiple roles for the Giants this season, to their practice squad.

Tomlinson originally joined the Giants in September of last year when he was claimed off of waivers from the New York Jets. He was waived several weeks later and spent time with the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders before re-signing with the Giants in March of this year.

At varying points this season, Tomlinson had spent time on both the Giants’ active roster and practice squad, and even took some reps along the offensive line when the team had an early COVID-19 scare.

Prior to his time with the Giants, Tomlinson was quite the journeyman, making stops with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he signed as an undrafted rookie out of UTEP, Houston Texans and the aforementioned Jets.

In 45 career games (32 starts), Tomlinson has hauled in 17 receptions for 194 yards and one touchdown. He is primarily used as a blocking tight end.
