Reports: Ravens sign Ronald Darby following cornerback injuries

The Baltimore Ravens signed veteran cornerback Ronald Darby on Thursday, NFL Network and ESPN reported.

According to NFL Network, Darby agreed to a one-year deal worth as much as $3.2 million.

Darby worked out for the Ravens a day after the team said All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey would undergo foot surgery. Baltimore has also been without Rock Ya-Sin, a likely starting cornerback, for most of training camp due to a knee injury, among other injuries at the position.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Humphrey’s absence wouldn’t be a “long-term deal,” with multiple outlets reporting he would be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

Darby, 29, was a free agent after playing the past two seasons with the Denver Broncos. He was searching for a new team after his 2022 season ended Oct. 6 due to a torn ACL in his right knee, and he had reportedly worked out for the Houston Texans in July.

A Maryland native, Darby collected 67 tackles and nine pass breakups in two seasons (16 games) in Denver. Across eight seasons with Buffalo (2015-16), Philadelphia (2017-19), Washington (2020) and Denver, Darby has eight interceptions, 90 pass breakups and 373 tackles in 89 games (88 starts).

Reports: Broncos release Graham Glasgow, Ronald Darby, Chase Edmonds

The Denver Broncos made a series of cap-saving moves Friday by releasing offensive lineman Graham Glasgow, cornerback Ronald Darby and running back Chase Edmonds, several outlets reported.

The release of Glasgow saves Denver $11 million, Darby saves the franchise $9.6 million and Edmonds saves it $5.9 million, according to reports.

Glasgow, 30, was entering the final year of a four-year, $44 million contract. He has played guard and center during his seven-year NFL career with the Detroit Lions (2016-19) and Broncos (2020-22). He appeared in all 17 games for Denver last season, starting 13.

Darby, 29, was a starting cornerback for the Broncos before suffering a season-ending torn ACL in Week 5. In two seasons with the Broncos, Darby had 67 tackles, a forced fumble and no interceptions across 16 games (all starts). He previously played for the Buffalo Bills (2015-16), Philadelphia Eagles (2017-19) and Washington (2020).

The Broncos acquired Edmonds, 26, from the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 1 in the trade that sent outside linebacker Bradley Chubb to Miami. Edmonds then suffered a high ankle sprain during Week 11 and returned in late December.

Edmonds only made five appearances and one start for the Broncos, taking 26 carries for 125 yards and catching six passes for 61 yards without a touchdown. In 70 career games (18 starts) with the Arizona Cardinals (2018-21), Miami and Denver, Edmonds has 401 rushing attempts for 1,796 yards and 11 touchdowns along with 144 receptions for 1,078 yards and six scores.
