Ravens sign CB Walker

OWINGS MILLS, MARYLAND (TICKER) —The Baltimore Ravens on Friday signed cornerback Frank Walker to a two-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Walker, 26, spent last season with the Green Bay Packers after spending his first four years in the league with the New York Giants. He is expected to compete for the Ravens’ third cornerback spot behind Pro Bowl starters Chris McAlister and Samari Rolle.

In 53 career games, Walker has 84 tackles and five interceptions.

“(General manager) Ozzie’s (Newsome) plan is to add valuable depth to the secondary this offseason, and he did that with Frank,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. “Frank can be a quality nickel for us, and he’ll add athleticism and toughness to our special teams. It’s a good signing for us.”

The Ravens made another roster addition Friday, signing free agent kicker E.J. Cochrane.
