Baltimore Ravens to sign former Houston Texans cornerback Jumal Rolle

According to Aaron Wilson, the Baltimore Ravens are set to sign former Houston Texans cornerback Jumal Rolle to their practice squad.

Rolle, an undrafted player in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Catawba College, comes to the Ravens at 25 years old. Rolle got his biggest shot as a Houston Texan after bouncing around the league on practice squads with the Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, and Green Bay Packers.

Rolle saw action in 18 games over the last 3 years, with 10 games in 2014 and 8 this season. In his career, Rolle has 21 tackles, 4 passes defensed, and 3 interceptions. At 6-foot and 188-pounds, Rolle looks like he could do well with a little grooming as he could potentially play both inside and outside coverage. Rolle also played special teams for the Texans, adding value for the Ravens if more injuries happen.

Jumal Rolle was waived from the Texans due to the team needing to sign quarterback Brandon Weeden to help replace starting quarterback Brian Hoyer.
