Ravens shuffle defense, cutting 2 and adding 3 cornerbacks

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) The Baltimore Ravens have added three cornerbacks to their porous, injury-riddled defense.

On Tuesday, Baltimore signed free agent cornerback Shareece Wright, who played 14 games with San Diego last season. He was on the San Francisco 49ers' roster this season, but did not play.

The Ravens also signed Asa Jackson and Charles James off their practice squad.

To make room for the newcomers, Baltimore put cornerback Will Davis on injured reserve and cut cornerback Rashaan Melvin and linebacker Jason Babin.

The moves come after Cleveland's Josh McCown passed for 457 yards Sunday in a 33-30 overtime defeat.

Baltimore is 1-4, the worst start in franchise history. The Ravens face the 49ers on Sunday.
