Ravens expected to sign veteran James Ihedigbo


Faced with a glut of injuries at the position, the Ravens are expected to sign former Patriots safety James Ihedigbo, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

Ihedigbo visited the Ravens Saturday and isn’t expected to leave without a deal. He was part of the Pats final cuts, and could contribute immediately.

Ihedigbo started 12 games last season for the Patriots. He’s also played for the Jets.

The Ravens lost Emanuel Cook to a broken leg and placed him on IR, and veteran backup Sean Considine is dealing with concussion symptoms, leaving rookie Christian Thompson as the only healthy backup to starters Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard.
