CB Aaron Ross Tweets He's Coming To Baltimore


The Ravens appear to be expressing interest in free-agent cornerbacks.

Former New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross posted a picture on Instagram and tweeted Monday afternoon that he's headed to Baltimore for Ravens minicamp, which begins Tuesday.

The Ravens have not announced any official signing. Ross could be participating on a tryout basis.

Ross played in just four games last year for the Giants. He was placed on injured reserve due to a back injury.

Ross, 31, is entering his eighth season and six were spent with the Giants. The former first-round pick's best year came in 2011 when he started 15 games, made 60 tackles, notched 12 passes defensed and had four interceptions. He's started 52 of 83 games over his career.

The Ravens are also reportedly among the teams who have contacted free-agent cornerback Brandon Flowers, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to multiple sources, Baltimore is bringing in three other cornerbacks, in addition to Ross, for minicamp tryouts.

Veteran cornerback Drayton Florence also expressed interest in being a Raven, reports The Baltimore Sun. Florence, 33, started five of 14 games last season and had two interceptions.

Baltimore will also reportedly be bringing in former New England Patriot Maurquice Cole, reports the NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. Cole played in 13 games last year and made 15 tackles and one interception.

The third is former Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dominique Franks, reports The Sun. Franks played in every game as a reserve last year. He hasn't started since 2011, and has four career starts.

The Ravens currently have Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson competing for the third spot behind Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith.
