On Sunday, cornerback Dominique Franks started for the Ravens against the Steelers. On Tuesday, Franks was cut.
The Ravens announced the departure of Franks less than 48 hours after he was a key contributor to the defensive meltdown that saw Ben Roethlisberger throw six touchdown passes in Pittsburgh’s blowout win over Baltimore.
Franks was the second cornerback cut by the Ravens today. Chykie Brown was also released.
The Ravens promoted undrafted rookie cornerback Tramain Jacobs from the practice squad to the active roster and claimed cornerback Danny Gorrer off waivers. At the moment, Jacobs, Gorrer and Lardarius Webb are the only healthy cornerbacks on the roster.
