Ravens make Aaron Ross signing official, waive three


The Ravens made a slew of roster moves Friday, signing five veteran players and waiving three undrafted rookies, the club said.

The team officially announced the signings of cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks and linebackers Austin Spitler and Nick DiMarco. All four deals had been reported on Thursday by the Baltimore Sun. The 31-year-old Ross previously played for the Giants (2007-2011, 2013) and Jaguars (2012).

The club also said it had reached a deal with former Chargers wide receiver Mike Willie, who had stints with San Diego in 2012 and 2013. The Sun had previously reported Willie’s pact. Willie (6-2, 220) played collegiately at Arizona State.

To make room for the signees, the Ravens parted ways with linebacker Xavius Boyd (Western Kentucky) and defensive backs Dexter Moody (Albany State) and Avery Patterson (Oregon).
