Where does Ravens secondary go now that Jimmy Smith’s season’s over?

The Baltimore Ravens had a rather embarrassing loss last week against the Steelers, falling 43-23 in Pittsburgh. There were many factors involved, but the secondary should without a doubt catch the most flack. What is going on with the Baltimore Ravens’ secondary and how did we get here? This seems to be the million-dollar question with the Baltimore media in the wake of a loss...

After starting for the Ravens on Sunday, Dominique Franks has been released

The defensive performance the Baltimore Ravens turned in against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday was not what we were use to seeing. After watching Ben Roethlisberger carve up their secondary for six touchdowns, the Ravens are looking to make changes. More importantly, the secondary which has been filled with injuries needed some changes. The changes started yesterday with CB...

Ravens release 2 of 3 active CBs, sign one, promote one from practice squad

It appears the Ravens have at the very least acknowledged their shortcomings.  Whether they’ve fixed them remains to be seen. The team announced Tuesday that they released Chykie Brown and Dominique Franks, two of the three cornerbacks on the Ravens active roster.  And as a whole two of the bigger glaring weaknesses over the past two weeks. In their stead, they promoted Tramain...

Waived by the Ravens Tuesday were cornerbacks Chykie Brown and Dominique Franks. The Ravens filled their spots on the roster […] Roethlisberger’s Six...

There was speculation earlier in the day that the Ravens could place a claim for Gorrer as they parted ways with cornerbacks Chykie Brown and Dominique Franks on Tuesday. Gorrer, 28, has appeared in six games this season recording seven...

Ravens Waive CB Dominique Franks

The Baltimore Ravens announced Tuesday that they have placed CB Dominique Franks on waivers. Baltimore re-signed Franks to a contract just a week ago, but it appears as though the poor performance against the Steelers was enough for them to look for alternative options. Franks, 26, signed a one-year, $730,000 contract with the Ravens back in June, but he was later released before...

Baltimore Ravens face Pittsburgh Steelers at their optimum offensive state

The Ravens have three cornerbacks who are healthy in Lardarius Webb, Dominique Franks and Chykie Brown.  They figure to need all three — and then some — in their matchup against the Steelers Sunday night. Antonio Brown leads the NFL in receptions, if that’s any indication of his quality.  On the opposite side is burgeoning rookie Martavis Bryant, a fourth-round pick from...

Asa Jackson placed on IR, will miss at least six weeks

The Ravens will be without Asa Jackson for longer than expected. His toe injury turned out to be of a more significant grade than previously assumed, and as a result, the Ravens third cornerback has been placed on the injured reserve list, with a designation to return.  That means Jackson will miss at least six games, and would be in line to return in Week 14 at the earliest. This...

Singing in the rain as Ravens head to Tampa…

There’s plenty of positives for Ravens fans to take out of the close loss to the Colts as the team prepares for Tampa Bay on Sunday. Haloti Ngata got yet another “Fat Guy” interception and even threw in a spin-move on a short return! That’s the 6th pass defensed by Ngata so far this season— an incredible stat for a 350-pound defensive lineman. Rookie inside linebacker...

Report: Ravens Tried Out CB Champ Bailey

Field Yates of ESPN is reporting that the Baltimore Ravens brought in veteran CB Champ Bailey for a tryout on Tuesday. The Ravens were clearly looking for help at the cornerback position this week as they wound up signing veteran CB Dominique Franks to a contract. With this in mind, it appears unlikely that Bailey will be signed in the coming days, barring an injury to one of their...

Ravens deal with budding injuries, team re-signs a cornerback

The Ravens defense was on the field for over 38 minutes in Sunday’s game in Indianapolis.  The affects of that contest are going to be felt beyond this week. Asa Jackson and Chris Canty are both expected to miss multiple weeks.  Both players are part of depleted positional corps, and Canty in particular has been the last line of defense at the five-technique position.  The Ravens...

Ravens Re-Sign CB Dominique Franks

Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports, citing a league source, reports that the Ravens are re-signing veteran CB Dominique Franks to a contract on Tuesday. Franks, 26, signed a one-year, $730,000 contract with the Ravens back in June, but he was later released before the start of the season. He hadn’t found any reported interest before the Ravens brought in for a workout several months...

5 things we learned from the Ravens “final” roster

1. The Ravens really like their wide receivers. We knew the competition was heated, and we knew the Ravens would have tough decisions ahead — but I don’t think anyone foresaw the Ravens retaining all eight of their top receivers from camp/the preseason.  They currently have seven on the 53-man roster, and with Jeremy Butler on IR with a shoulder injury (that mysteriously cropped...

Training camp has only been under way for a little over a week. The Ravens entered camp with four cornerbacks on their roster from last season — Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson.  They also signed two veteran free agents in former Giant, Aaron Ross, and Dominique Franks, who last played with the Falcons.  On top of those six players, the Ravens were reportedly...

I hate that the Ravens didn’t pursue Brandon Flowers

This past week, the Ravens addressed their secondary problems by adding two key veterans, after inviting roughly five for tryouts. First, ex-Giant Aaron Ross came in after being injured much of last year with a back injury.  In addition to Ross (and others), former-Falcon Dominique Franks came to Owings Mills for minicamp.  Both were recently put on the Ravens roster — the only...

Dominique Franks (free agent from Atlanta) is signed to the Ravens roster along with Aaron Ross (formerly of the Giants and Jags) to compete for that 3rd corner position in the Ravens secondary. I mention Franks first because I believe he has the best chance of winning the opening day “starting” nickelback among the other candidates which include Asa Jackson, Chykie Brown and...
