The Ravens made their latest roster move in the secondary with the addition of veteran cornerback Antoine Cason on Tuesday.
Cason joins the Ravens a week after he was cut by the Carolina Panthers. The 2008 first-round pick out of Arizona will take the roster spot of cornerback Danny Gorrer, who was officially placed on season-ending injured reserve with two torn knee ligaments suffered in the Week 14 win over Miami.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound cornerback played in 12 games (11 starts) for the Panthers this season, collecting 58 tackles, two interceptions, four forced fumbles, and six pass breakups. He spent his first five seasons with San Diego and the 2013 campaign with the Arizona Cardinals.
Cason played against the Ravens in Week 4, collecting two tackles as the Panthers fell 38-10 at M&T Bank Stadium.
In 108 career games, the 28-year-old Cason has accumulated 380 tackles, 16 interceptions, 64 pass breakups, and eight forced fumbles.
In other moves, the Ravens signed wide receiver Aldrick Robinson and tight end Allen Reisner to their practice squad and cut Baltimore native and wide receiver LaQuan Williams. Wide receiver Deonte Thompson was signed off the Ravens’ practice squad by the Buffalo Bills and will join their 53-man roster.
