Gorrer is once again a Raven.

The Ravens made yet another change at the cornerback spot on Tuesday in hopes of improving the group from what was a horrible showing the past two weeks.

The Ravens were awarded cornerback Danny Gorrer off of waivers on Tuesday. Gorrer was most recently with the Lions, which waived him a day ago. The move makes a lot of sense from the Ravens' standpoint in that he's familiar with the defensive system, having been a part of the team in 2010 and 2011.

To make room for Gorrer, the Ravens cut Dominique Franks, who struggled quite a bit since joining the team during the regular season.

Gorrer has bounced around the NFL for quite some time. In addition to the Lions, he's been a part of the Saints, Buccaneers, Rams and Seahawks. With the shape the secondary is in at the moment, the Ravens needed to make a move to address the situation before heading into Sunday's game against Tennessee.

"I'm definitely glad to be back, I'm going to go out there and give it my all and approach it as a business," Gorrer told The Baltimore Sun. "My job is to cover the receivers and just be there and make plays for the defense. I hope to help get this team going in the right direction. They basically had one bad game. I'm just going to be myself and everything else will take care of itself. I just want to do my part to help the team win games."
