The Ravens are struggling with injuries at the cornerback position and signed the 24-year-old out of Texas ahead of their preseason game on Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts.
Byndom didn’t make the field last season, but he played sparingly for the Panthers in 2014. The team signed him as an undrafted free agent earlier that year.
The Arizona Cardinals signed Byndom to their practice squad midway through the 2015 season and then waived him in July of this year.
Byndom started for the Longhorns in 39 consecutive games and was a two-time All Big 12 selection.
