Brandon Carr signed a four-year deal with Baltimore, the organization announced.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the four-year deal has multiple options that allow the team flexibility.
Carr is now 30 years old, and is coming off a season where Pro Football Focus ranked him as the number 52 overall cornerback in the NFL.
"We got better today", Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome told The Associated Press. The contract is likely to wrap up at two years, $12 million, per Schefter.
In 10 seasons, Carr has never missed a start (144).
AJ Bouye signs with Jaguars
Chicago isn't completely out of the mix just yet, but Ryan Pace will have to get aggressive in an effort to outbid the Jaguars. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was the first to break the news on Twitter, with Adam Schefter confirming on Thursday afternoon .
While appearing in all 16 regular season games for an impressive Cowboys team in 2016-2017, Carr produced 61 total tackles alongside one interception. Instead, after it was reported by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports that the two sides had a disconnect on cost, the Ravens chose to go with Carr.
But there's a major caveat: Claiborne's injury history. The Ravens did sign a Cowboys free agent corner, just turns out it was the other one, Brandon Carr.
