Ravens' free-agent rankings: No. 15

There are 14 Baltimore Ravens players who are set to become free agents on March 10, and there's one (nose tackle Terrence Cody) who is already available. Here is how I'm ranking those 15 players, starting with No. 15:


Position: Cornerback

The good: Not much at this point in Ross' career, which is why he is ranked last on this list. He has experience with 61 starts in seven NFL seasons. Ross also has shown playmaking ability during his career, making 11 interceptions and breaking up 41 passes.

The bad: Ross has spent most of the past two seasons on injured reserve. Last year, he tore his Achilles' tendon during the Ravens' conditioning test for training camp and never played a game. In 2013, he appeared in only four games with the New York Giants before a back injury sent him to injured reserve. Ross' last game was 17 months ago.

The bottom line: Retirement is more likely than getting signed by another team. Ross is a 32-year-old, injury-prone defender. The Ravens brought him in for a June tryout because they were desperate and Ross had ties with then-secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo. Outside of that, Ross didn't attract much interest last offseason. It's hard to believe some team would want him with his recent track record.
