Champ Bailey visited Ravens, not immediately signed to contract, sources say

In a search for depth at cornerback, sources said the Ravens brought in former Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey for a visit Tuesday at team headquarters in Owings Mills.

However, Bailey wasn't immediately signed to a contract as the Ravens have opted to re-sign cornerback Dominique Franks.

Bailey, 36, was cut by the New Orleans Saints after signing with the team in the offseason. The 12-time Pro Bowl cornerback recently worked out for the Detroit Lions, but he wasn't offered a contract.

Questions about Bailey's health and effectiveness have been raised around the NFL in recent months. The former University of Georgia star had a legendary career, though.
