News: Cox is expected to sign with the Ravens on Wednesday, The Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: Cox was cut earlier this week by the Vikings, which followed the Chargers letting the cornerback go just one season into a four-year, $20 million deal signed last March. With the Ravens currently mending injuries to their top three cornerbacks, Lardarius Webb (back), Jimmy Smith (chest), and Asa Jackson (ankle), a veteran presence like Cox should help Baltimore's secondary in the early going this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Cox was cut by the Vikings on Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Impact: Cox inked a four-year, $20 million contract with the Chargers in March of 2013 but lasted just one season in San Diego amid largely underwhelming returns on that hefty investment. While the cornerback aimed to rebound with the Vikings this term, he failed to earn significant action during the preseason, leading Minnesota to release him Monday. The veteran will now hit the free-agent market having been cut twice since the end of last season.(RotoWire, )
