The Ravens, who agreed to terms with former Seahawks WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh on Monday, traded wideout Mark Clayton to the Rams on Monday. The teams also exchanged undisclosed draft picks, per the club's official Twitter feed.

Clayton, 29, caught 34 passes for 480 yards and two TDs in 14 games (12 starts) last season. He was a first-round pick of the Ravens in 2005. His best season was in '06, when he caught 67 passes for 939 yards and five TDs.

Clayton could help make up for the loss of Rams WR Donnie Avery, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in St. Louis' third preseason game.
