Default Ravens close to filling Baxter void with Titans' Rolle

The Baltimore Ravens, who last week lost free-agent cornerback Gary Baxter to the Cleveland Browns, are on the verge of signing a replacement. Would you believe ...

The former Tennessee cornerback, who visited the Kansas City Chiefs last week and was in the middle of negotiations with the club, could sign with the Ravens as early as late Monday.

"It's not done, but we are very, very close," said Ozzie Newsome, the team's vice president and general manager.

If the Ravens sign Rolle, he would become the second former Tennessee star to join the club. The Ravens last week signed free-agent wide receiver Derrick Mason.

Rolle is the top available free-agent cornerback, and it was believed he would join the Chiefs. However, the two sides never settled on a deal, and negotiations appeared to stall last weekend. That's when the Ravens jumped in.

Rolle has been one of the top AFC cornerbacks, though he was sidelined the last five games last year by a knee injury. He was the only defensive player left from a Titans team that went to Super Bowl XXXIV and their only defensive player to wear a Tennessee Oilers uniform.

Rolle, who has been named to Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams, was a salary cap casualty -- one of six players, including Mason, who was released by Tennessee earlier this year as the club reduced a salary structure that was $27 million over this year's $85.5 million cap.
================================================== ========

If he can stay healthy, nice pickup for Baltimore.

I was reading that KC got scared off by Rolle because when they brought him in for his physical they found some back problem...or something like that. I don't know what KC is thinking though. They've brought in alot of defenensive players and haven't signed anyone yet. If this back problem isn't a big deal then its a great replacement for Baxter.

rolle just signed with the ravens to a 6 year deal.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (March 7, 2005) -- Cornerback Samari Rolle agreed to a six-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, who last week lost Gary Baxter to the Cleveland Browns.

Rolle was a 2000 Pro Bowl selection with the Tennessee Titans. He also had been pursued by the Kansas City Chiefs, but their interest cooled because of health concerns.

Like new Ravens receiver Derrick Mason, Rolle was a salary-cap casualty before the free-agent signing period in Tennessee.

In 2000, Rolle intercepted seven passes to anchor a Titans defense that went 13-3 and lost in the AFC divisional round to the Ravens. Rolle was limited to a career-low 12 games last season because of an injured left knee that has required arthroscopic surgery. He finished with just one interception and 28 tackles.

He'll replace Baxter, last year's starting cornerback who joined the Browns after initially reaching an agreement with Baltimore. Cleveland signed him to a six-year contract.

Rolle was accompanied by his wife, Danisha, at the Ravens' training complex.

Hmmm...Not enough to replace Baxter. A big loss for one of the best defensive team of the NFL.
