Ravens claim CB Davontae Harris off waivers
The Baltimore Ravens added some much-needed depth at cornerback on Wednesday when they claimed Davontae Harris off of waivers. The 2018 fifth-round pick by the Cincinnati Bengals out of Illinois State was waived by the Denver Broncos on Monday.
He will be a strong presence on special teams and help bolster a depleted cornerback depth chart behind starters Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters.
The Ravens currently have five cornerbacks on injured reserve and veteran Jimmy Smith missed last week’s game with an ankle injury that also held him out of Wednesday’s practice.
Harris started six games for the Broncos last season but mostly played special teams in the seven games he’s been active for this year with just one start that came in Week Nine where he played all 54 of his 2020 defensive snaps thus far.
In 26 career games, including seven starts, he has recorded 40 total tackles and three pass deflections.
The Ravens will be getting Terrell Bonds and Anthony Averett back at some point this season but are in desperate need of more players at corner with Smith nursing an injury and Tramon Williams as the only other healthy option on the active roster.
