Ravens signing cornerback Antoine Cason
The Ravens, in need of yet another cornerback, will sign former first-round draft pick Antoine Cason to the 53-man roster.
According to The Baltimore Sun and National Football Post's Aaron Wilson, Cason will join the Ravens after trying out for the Bears last week. Cason, 28, was last with the Panther before being released. He has 58 tackles, two interceptions and four forced fumbles this season.
Cason was the 27th overall selection in the first round of the 2008 NFL draft by the San Diego Chargers. Before joining Carolina this year, Cason spent the 2013 season with the Cardinals.
Cason will replace Danny Gorrer, who will be moved to season-ending injured reserve after tearing his PCL and MCL against the Dolphins this past Sunday.
