The Ravens have decided to sign cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks after both men had strong performances at their mini-camp, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter). Ross, he adds, had the very best tryout of any free agent corner that auditioned for Baltimore this week (link).
The Ravens inquired on Brandon Flowers earlier this week but it appears, at least for the time being, that they’ve satisfied their cornerback needs elsewhere. Free agent veteran Drayton Florence was also a consideration, but Ross and Franks won out over him and former Jet and Patriot Marquise Cole .
Ross, 32 in September, tried out for the Lions back in April but came away without a deal. The 20th overall pick in the 2007 draft saw just four games on the field for the Giants last season due to a back injury. He has spent his entire NFL career to date with Big Blue, with the exception of his 2012 campaign with Jacksonville.
