DB Marcus Gilchrist

The Ravens have signed veteran defensive back Marcus Gilchrist to the practice squad.

The 31-year-old Gilchrist has played both safety and cornerback during his career. His best season was with the Jets in 2015 when he had a career-high 82 tackles and three interceptions as a starting safety. 

He was with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season before being released in December, and has also spent time with the Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans and San Diego Chargers.

Gilchrist was a Chargers second-round draft pick from Clemson in 2011 and he has 14 career interceptions. Gilchrist assumes the spot on the practice squad created when safety Jordan Richards was elevated to the 53-man roster.
