Following the long-term toe injury suffered by Asa Jackson, the Ravens are bringing back a familiar face to boost depth at the cornerback position.
According to a Yahoo Sports report, the Ravens will re-sign veteran cornerback Dominique Franks with Jackson expected to be placed on injured reserve with the designation to return. The 27-year-old Franks was signed by the Ravens after their mandatory minicamp in June and spent the entire preseason with Baltimore before being let go during final cuts.
After spending four years with the Atlanta Falcons as a special-teams contributor and reserve defensive back, Franks recorded seven tackles, two pass breakups, and an interception in four preseason games with the Ravens. With Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith, and Asa Jackson all dealing with injuries over the summer, Franks even started in two of the four preseason contests.
In 48 career games (including four starts) over his four-year career in Atlanta, Franks accumulated 30 tackles, nine pass breakups, and three interceptions.
