The Browns announced the signing of Baltimore Ravens free agent cornerback Corey Ivy Thursday. Profootballtalk.com reported Wednesday that Ivy agreed to terms of a one-year deal.
An eight-year veteran who has spent much of his career as a nickel back, Ivy played for the Ravens for the past three seasons. He has also been with the St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, winning the Super Bowl in 2002. Over the past seven seasons, Ivy has played in 110 regular-season games with 21 starts, 13 of those with the Ravens in 2007.
Ivy went to camp with the Browns in 2000 after starting his career on New England's practice squad in 1999.
Ivy, who turns 32 on March 29, is the first ex-Raven acquired by new Browns general manager George Kokinis, who spent the past six years as Baltimore's director of pro personnel.
