Sheldon Price is a 6"2 198 corner out of UCLA, who was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2013 by the Indianapolis Colts. The 24 year old saw action in 2 games in 2014 with the team, but was waived on September 25. Price finished his career at UCLA with a total of 157 tackles, 5 Interceptions, 26 Pass Deflections and 2 Forced fumbles. He also has an NFL pedigree, as his father, Dennis Price played his College football at UCLA and was a fifth round selection of the 1988 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. He played cornerback in the NFL for 4 seasons two each with the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets.
Nordly Capi is a 6"3, 247 lb defensive end out of Akron who would likely play at outside linebacker for the Ravens. Capi was picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent, but was let go at the roster cutdown to 53. Capi had 9 pressures and 2 sacks in the preseason, but was ultimately let go. Capi played two seasons with Akron after transferring from Colorado State. He was a second-team All-Mid-American Conference selection and an All-MAC pick in 2014, as he finished the season with 39 tackles, a team-best five sacks and a team-best five hurries. He finished his college career with 15 sacks.
