Inside the Ravens with Aaron Wilson

There's a new CB kid in town

The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to a contract with undrafted rookie free agent cornerback Chris Hawkins.

The 6-foot, 187-pound former LSU starter worked out for the Ravens earlier today at training camp at McDaniel College.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for him,” Hawkins' agent, Darin Morgan, told the Carroll County Times. “Hopefully, Chris can take advantage of the opportunity. He certainly has good size and good measurables. The Ravens like cornerbacks with some size, and he fits the bill for what they like.”

Hawkins was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars following the draft.

Jacksonville cut him in July before training camp.

The Ravens lost cornerback Domonique Foxworth for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

They traded quarterback John Beck to the Washington Redskins this week for cornerback Doug Dutch.

Hawkins was invited to the NFL scouting combine in February.

He recorded 119 career tackles, 19 pass deflections and five interceptions for the Tigers.
