Reports: Ravens Re-Signing CB Dominique Franks

UPDATE: The Ravens officially signed cornerback Dominique Franks Wednesday morning.

The Ravens are reportedly bringing back a familiar face to help ease their cornerback injury woes.

Baltimore is re-signing veteran cornerback Dominique Franks, according to multiple reports including Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin. Franks spent training camp with the Ravens before being released during the final cutdown.

The Ravens needed another cornerback after Asa Jackson suffered a severely sprained toe, said Head Coach John Harbaugh. He will "probably" be placed on the injured reserve – designated list, which would rule him out until at least Week 10.

Franks played well in the preseason. He made two pass deflections and an interception in the first game against San Francisco.

Franks was beaten by Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant for a touchdown in the second preseason game, but rebounded with good showings against Washington and New Orleans.

The fifth-year pro has played in all but two games the past three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. He has 30 career tackles, nine pass deflections and three interceptions.

If signed, Franks will compete with Chykie Brown and a host of Ravens safeties to be the Ravens' third cornerback. Baltimore has its two starting cornerbacks now healthy with Lardarius Webb joining Jimmy Smith.
