The Chiefs are signing cornerback Jamell Fleming off the Ravens’ practice squad to their active roster, a source tells Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun. The Ravens signed Fleming, a former Cardinals third-round cornerback, to their practice squad just last week.
As our own Luke Adams detailed last week, Fleming was one of eleven practice squad players earning more than the minimum this year. The 25-year-old was cut by the Jaguars during the final major roster cutdown after seeing time in eight games last season for the for them. While he hasn’t made a major impact at the NFL level yet, the cornerback had 168 tackles, seven interceptions, two touchdowns, and a sack for the Sooners during his time at Oklahoma.
Fleming’s departure will leave the Ravens with nine players on their practice squad and Wilson writes that they could consider re-signing cornerback Deji Olatoye to the practice squad.
