Ravens are signing cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks

As expected, the Ravens are bringing both corners in, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Following tryouts this week at mandatory minicamp, the Ravens will sign cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks, The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports.


During Thursday's post-practice press conference, coach John Harbaugh told reporters that the Ravens would likely sign a couple of the corners that tried out. These two were the obvious choices. Both have game experience and can provide certain roles.

Ross has experience playing under Steve Spagnuolo and Franks has some value on special teams. Franks was also a nickel corner at times in Atlanta, the team that drafted him in the fifth round in 2010.

This is great for the Ravens in that there's more depth at the position. But it's bad for Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson. Their chances to be the nickel corner just took a devastating hit.

That said, it wouldn't be wise to write Brown off yet. It could come down to he and Ross for the third corner spot. But you'd have to think that Ross has the advantage at this time based on experience and familiarity with Spagnuolo.
