The Ravens are expected to add other players, with veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks regarded as likely additions.

The Ravens also tried out veteran defensive tackle Daniel Muir, cornerbacks Kevin Thomas, Drayton Florence, Marquice Cole and Bobby Felder as well as wide receivers Mike Willie and Dezmon Briscoe.
