Derek Cox: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Cox was released by the Ravens on Saturday, but now returns to the team in a planned procedural move. With Baltimore a bit banged-up at cornerback, Cox could see an increased snap count if Lardarius Webb (back) and Jimmy Smith (chest) are limited at all in Week 1. However, with Webb and Smith entrenched as the Ravens' starting cornerbacks, and Asa Jackson and Chykie Brown also talented reserves, Cox will likely serve as the team's fourth or fifth option at the position this season.
Cox was released by the Ravens on Saturday, but the transaction is considered procedural, as he's expected to re-sign with the team before Week 1, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Cox was cut earlier this week by the Vikings, which followed the Chargers letting the cornerback go just one season into a four-year, $20 million deal signed last March. With the Ravens currently mending injuries to their top three cornerbacks, Lardarius Webb (back), Jimmy Smith (chest), and Asa Jackson (ankle), a veteran presence like Cox should help Baltimore's secondary in the early going this season.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Cox had 60 tackles and four interceptions in 12 games with the Jaguars last season and will move right into a starting cornerback gig in the Chargers' defense.

2012

Cox looked poised to break out onto the scene as a premiere corner after a brilliant Monday night performance against Joe Flacco and the Ravens, but saw his season cut short due to injuries. The little-known corner out of William & Mary has elevated his game over the past two seasons and has been a huge part of the team's resurgence in the secondary. If Cox is able to stay healthy in 2012, expect his name to begin floating around as a top corner IDP option.

2010

Cox grabbed four interceptions in his 2009 rookie year, and could be a player on the verge for 2010. With Rashean Mathis' skills in serious decline, Cox may quickly become the linchpin of the Jags' defensive backfield, especially if he improves his ballhawking skills.
