He was the fourth player selected by the Baltimore Ravens in 2011, and second wide receiver behind the second round selection Torrey Smith from the University of Maryland. Despite a strong preseason, Doss had no catches in the 2011 season. Doss caught his first career receiving touchdown in Week 7 of the 2012 season against the Houston Texans. However, the Texans would win that game 43-13. Doss earned his first NFL Championship by virtue of the Ravens winning Super Bowl XLVII, but was waived from the team on August 31, 2013. When Doss was waived by the Baltimore Ravens, he was worked out by the Green Bay Packers, but Doss left with no contract. Tandon Doss was later re-signed to the Baltimore Ravens on September 9, 2013.
