Ravens sign cornerback Jerraud Powers to 1-year contract

May 13, 2016

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The Baltimore Ravens have signed former Cardinals cornerback Jerraud Powers to a one-year contract.

Powers started 13 games last season for Arizona, finishing with 52 tackles, an interception and a sack.

The 28-year-old Powers played the first four years of his career with Indianapolis and the last three with the Cardinals. He has started 82 of 87 games.

A third-round pick out of Auburn in 2009, Powers has 11 career interceptions.


He is expected to compete against Shareece Wright and Will Davis for a starting job opposite Jimmy Smith.

Signing Powers as a free agent Friday won't cost the Ravens a compensatory because the deal occurred after May 12.
