Ravens Swap Cornerbacks, Add More Experience to Secondary


The Ravens swapped cornerbacks Monday morning, signing Trevin Wade and releasing Al-Hajj Shabazz. The move adds more experience to Baltimore's secondary.

Wade, 28, is a sixth-year veteran who played in all 16 games the past two seasons with the New York Giants. He started five games over that span.

In 2015, Wade made 52 tackles, broke up six passes and forced one fumble. In last year's preseason, he intercepted New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Arizona product could give the Ravens another option at nickel cornerback as well.

Wade was originally a seventh-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2012, then bounced to the New Orleans Saints in 2013, Detroit Lions practice squad in 2014 and then the Giants. The Ravens will be his fifth NFL team.

Shabazz, who was heading into his third season, was signed by the Ravens in early June after the release of vested veteran Kyle Arrington.

The Ravens have already been hit with injuries at the cornerback position as they lost Tavon Young (ACL) for the season and Maurice Canady (knee) for much of the year.
