The Baltimore Ravens are clearly acquiring cornerbacks like there is some apocalypse that will feature footballs raining down on us. After adding Aaron Ross just an hour ago, they have tabbed veteran corner Dominique Franks as worthy enough for a tryout.

Franks was drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons. After four uneventful seasons in Atlanta where he only officially started four games, he finds his way to Baltimore to try out for the vacant nickle corner position on a tough and talented Ravens' secondary.

In a total of 48 games where Franks saw suited up for Atlanta, he ends his time there with 30 tackles, 9 passes defensed and 3 interceptions. With Brent Grimes going down with an injury in 2012, Franks was resigned by the Falcons to compete for the nickle corner job there, so he has some experience in the position and battling for his job.

At 6-foot and 197-pounds, Franks has decent physical measurables and could push the combination of Asa Jackson and Chykie Brown for their roster spot if the Ravens like him enough.
