Free Agents Ross, Green Signed


The Ravens signed fullback Justin Green and running back Cory Ross back to the roster Tuesday.

Green, a restricted free agent, will enter his fourth season in Baltimore after the Ravens selected him in the fifth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. A special teams standout, Green finished third on the team with a career-high 19 special teams tackles last season.

The 5-foot-11, 251-pounder will compete with 2007 draft pick Le'Ron McClain for the Ravens' fullback spot this offseason.

The diminutive Ross (5-foot-6, 201 pounds) has been a solid backup for the Ravens since he made the team in 2006 as an undrafted free agent. That year, he filled in for return specialist B.J. Sams in the Ravens' final four games when Sams was out with an ankle injury. Ross scored his first-career touchdown in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers last year, romping 32 yards for a second-quarter score.

With only one season under his belt, Ross' status was exclusive rights free agent.
