The Ravens had a handful of players at last weekend's minicamp on a tryout basis.
Mixed in among the undrafted free agents and young players looking for their first break was an eight-year veteran who was a second-round pick back in 2002.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Travis Fisher.
The 5-10, 189 pound cornerback performed well last weekend, and earned himself a second tryout with the Ravens during their next minicamp, which begins on Monday. It's expected that Fisher and the Ravens will agree on a contract sometime soon.
The 30-year-old drew the praises of head coach John Harbaugh this weekend for his performance during the initial tryout.
"He played well. He really looked good," Harbaugh said. "Very solid player - good feet, good technician, works really hard, understands the game, really picked the defense up quickly, and we threw a lot at him. Travis did a nice job."
With Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb coming back from ACL tears, the Ravens have a need at cornerback, and Fisher might be a guy to help fill depth at the position.
The Central Florida product was a second-round pick of the Rams partly because of his sub-4.4 speed. He started 36 games in his first three years in the league, posting seven interceptions in that time frame.
But Fisher broke his right arm in 2004 and then again in 2006, and played in only 17 games in the 2005 and '06 seasons. He signed with the Lions in 2007, and had a bounce-back year, making a career-high 78 tackles and grabbing two interceptions.
After a sub-par 2008 (zero interceptions and 37 tackles in 14 games), however, Fisher was released by Detroit. He signed with the Seahawks last year, but played just four games before being released in November.
Fisher might not have quite as much juice in his legs as he did back in 2002, but he looked sharp during the Ravens' first minicamp. If he keeps it up, given the injuries to Washington and Webb, he might have a shot to stick around in Baltimore .
