The Ravens didn't held a practice or a press conference on Tuesday, but that didn't mean news stopped coming off Baltimore's headquarters.

The Ravens completed five transactions on Tuesday including losing one player to the Chicago Bears, signing a former San Francisco 49ers cornerback, cutting a practice-squad wide receiver, and bringing back to Baltimore a couple of former Ravens: a tight end and a cornerback.

Here is the review of everything that happened on Tuesday, starting with the Bears signing Duron Harmon off the Ravens' practice squad.

1. Chicago Bears sign S Duron Harmon off Ravens' practice squad

A few weeks into the season, the Baltimore Ravens secured veteran safety Duron Harmon following Marcus Williams' apparent "torn pec" injury, which was anticipated to place Williams on IR.

Fast forward to just hours ago, ahead of Week 5, and the Ravens lost Harmon to the Chicago Bears.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune first reported the news of the Bears signing the veteran off the Ravens' PS, and the Bears PR team confirmed it a bit later.

This marks the Bears' second defensive back addition from a practice squad in two weeks, a move seen as an attempt to address their struggling secondary in a challenging season.

Harmon had stints with the Raiders (2022) among other teams, including the New England Patriots with whom he went on to win a Super Bowl.

Harmon's chances of making the active roster were slim in Baltimore, so he should appreciate the move. For Chicago, the signing appears to be a low-risk attempt to inject some veteran freshness into their lineup and improve their performance going forward, which looks impossible anyway.
