S Daron Harmon - FA Signed to Practice Squad

With Daryl Worley leaving the Practice Squad and a slot open in the 16-man unit, the Ravens were able to sign a free agent off the street to fill that hole. They chose 10-year veteran and three-time Super Bowl champion safety Daron Harmon.

This move was prompted by defensive back Marcus Williams' injured pectoral muscle, which could lead to surgery and to a potential weeks-to-months recovery period. Worley was the first man called up as an in-house solution, but Harmon adds another much-needed warm body to the depleted secondary.

Harmon has played in the NFL for a full decade and is entering his 11th pro season. The last time he did it he did so with the Raiders last year, when he went on to play 16 games in Las Vegas racking up a solid 86 tackles, picking two passes, and forcing a couple of fumbles.

Most interestingly, Harmon comes with a vast high-stakes dose of experience as he was part of three New England Patriots Super Bowl victories through the 2010s decade.

Career-wise, Harmon spent seven seasons with the Patriots and then played for Detroit (16 games), Atlanta (17), and lastly Las Vegas (16) totaling 161 appearances and 78 starts with 401 tackles to his name along with 43 interceptions.

At the time of this writing Harmon is still in the Ravens' PS, but expect a promotion to the active roster in time for Sunday's game. Marcus Williams will most probably be put on IR while recovering from his torn pec muscle, opening another slot in the 53-man squad to be filled by someone, namely Harmon.
