News: Cox was released by the Ravens on Saturday, but the transaction is considered procedural, as he's expected to re-sign with the team before Week 1, The Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: Signed by the Ravens earlier in the week, Cox has now been released by three teams this year, after signing a four-year, $20 million contract with the Chargers last offseason. In any case, it appears he's finally found a home, though he'll likely just be the fourth or fifth cornerback upon rejoining the Ravens. Cox could perhaps be worth a glance in deeper IDP leagues, if Lardarius Webb (back) and Jimmy Smith (chest) both fail to make it back for Week 1 against the Bengals.(RotoWire, )

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, )
