The Ravens have claimed cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris off waivers from the AFC North rival Bengals, reports Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer. In a corresponding move, Baltimore has waived corner Will Davis, per Field Yates of ESPN (Twitter links).
Lewis-Harris, whom the Bengals cut Thursday, will now join his second organization. The fifth-year man originally signed with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent from Chattanooga in 2012. Lewis-Harris, 27, logged 26 appearances with the Bengals, including seven this season. He also racked up his first career interception in a Week 4 win over Miami this year and participated in 31.7 percent of the Bengals’ special teams snaps during the first half of the season.
In addition to the Ravens, the Dolphins also put in a claim on Lewis-Harris, according to Owczarski. Notably, Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph was previously the Bengals’ defensive backs coach. To Joseph’s chagrin, Lewis-Harris will head to Baltimore, which is banged up in the secondary and facing an important meeting with division-rival Pittsburgh on Sunday.
