Browns Sign Ravens Cornerback Corey Ivy

The Cleveland Browns have signed Baltimore Ravens free agent cornerback Corey Ivy to a one-year deal.

On balance, we like this move. It is a short and relatively inexpensive contract which is reasonable given that Ivy is almost 32 years old. Ivy played his college football at Oklahoma. He first signed with the New England Patriots in 1999 and has since played for the Bucs, Rams and Ravens. He won a Super Bowl with the Bucs in 2002 after playing in all 16 regular season games and all postseason games that year for Tampa.

Ivy was actually signed by the Browns back in 2000, however, he was waived in August of that year. Corey played a year in the XFL in Chicago in 2001. He led the XFL that season with the most interceptions. After being a part of the Bucs' Super Bowl victory in 2002, the next season Ivy played in every game again and compiled 17 tackles. He played in every game again in 2004 posting 17 special teams tackles. In 2005, now with the Rams, Ivy had a superb season playing in every game and recording 57 tackles plus two sacks. In 2006, Corey signed with the Ravens. He had a great season with the top ranked Baltimore defense. He played on special teams and at the nickelback position. In a game against the rival Steelers, Ivy posted an interception, a sack and a forced fumble that was recovered by the Ravens for a touchdown and the win. And that game against the Steelers was Corey's first game back after a kidney injury.

Ivy should help with some depth in our secondary and on special teams. He is a good addition to the locker room with his experience particularly in the playoffs.

Go Browns!
