Ravens Sign Two Defensive Backs

Reported by the Baltimore Sun:

The Ravens signed veteran cornerback Travis Fisher and rookie safety Brad Jones after their tryouts in the team’s first minicamp.

Fisher, 30, has made nine interceptions and broken up 32 passes in his eight-year career. Drafted by St. Louis in the second round in 2002, he played five years for the Rams before bouncing around to Detroit and Seattle. He is 5 feet 10, 189 pounds.

Jones frequently played with the Ravens’ second-team defense during his tryout. A one-year starter at Cincinnati, he wasn’t invited to the NFL combine and wasn’t signed by the Cleveland Browns after a tryout. He is 6 feet, 192 pounds.

I realize that these moves are nothing but insurance. But Fisher’s past is interesting. He signed a one year deal with the Lions in 2007and resigned a 3-year 9 million dollar deal after recording a career high 85 tackles. His 2008 season he was not as nearly as productive and was waived in 2009. He played for Seattle this past season and appeared in 4 games.
