Ravens swap pair of cornerbacks on waiver wire

November 04, 2016 | Luke Jones

The Ravens shuffled their secondary depth Friday by claiming cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris off waivers from Cincinnati and cutting cornerback Will Davis.

The 27-year-old Lewis-Harris was an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee-Chattanooga in 2012 and appeared in 26 games over five seasons with the Bengals. He’s collected 13 tackles and earned the first interception of his career earlier this season.

Acquired in exchange for a 2016 seventh-round pick from Miami last year, Davis showed promise in his first two games with the Ravens before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament for the second straight year. The 5-foot-11 defensive back struggled to earn playing time in his return this season, appearing in just three games and playing 54 defensive snaps.

His most extensive action came against the New York Giants on Oct. 16 when Davis was burned for a 75-yard touchdown by Odell Beckham Jr. in the 27-23 defeat. In five total games with the Ravens, Davis collected five tackles, an interception, and two pass breakups.

The Utah State product was a third-round pick of the Dolphins in the 2013 draft and has appeared in 20 games in four NFL seasons.
