A lot of folks have been waiting for the Ravens to address the issue of having essentially no cornerback depth.

When Lardarius Webb sat out the first two games with a back injury, the Ravens ran with three corners and used safety Matt Elam at nickel against Pittsburgh. That's great and all that the Ravens have versatile guys, but there's a school of thought where it would be nice if the Ravens had more guys at cornerback that could focus on getting better at the position.

Well, the Ravens, slowly but steady apparently, are looking to address the area. According to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, the Ravens worked out cornerback Jalil Brown.

Brown hasn't done much in the NFL, having spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Indianapolis Colts. He was a teammate of Jimmy Smith's in college at Colorado.

One interesting fact on Brown is that he holds the single-game high school rushing record in Arizona with 412 yards. This broke Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs' previous record.
