Former Cougar tight end Dennis Pitta has signed a $2.023 million second-round restricted free agent tender with the Baltimore Ravens, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Pitta can become an unrestricted free agent in 2014, although the Ravens have expressed interest in finalizing a long-term deal before then.

Pitta reportedly received interest from the Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers.

Pitta is coming off a year setting career highs for receptions (61), yards (669) and touchdowns (7). Pitta had four receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Super Bowl win over San Francisco.
