Free agent cornerbacks the Ravens could sign
Depending on the severity of Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith's chest injury, the team's cornerback depth issues could be reaching critical levels. Seemingly minor injuries to Lardarius Webb (back) and Asa Jackson (ankle) have lingered for weeks, leaving Chykie Brown, Dominique Franks, and a cast of undrafted free agents to fill the temporary void.
The rookies, like Tramain Jacobs, Deji Olatoye, and Sammy Seamster, can use the remainder of the preseason to gain valuable NFL experience, but here are some players the Ravens could sign who already have it and could help at the position right away.

Asante Samuel( August 18, 2014 )
This is the most discussed option, given his past in New England with defensive coordinator Dean Pees. Though Samuel's play in recent years, especially last year in Atlanta, hasn't been great, he's probably the top of the stopgap scrap heap if the Ravens dip into the free agent market.
