Baltimore Ravens get secondary, return game help

Even during a bye week, in which I was going to write about Joe Flacco's game from Sunday night, the Baltimore Ravens make a roster move.

After struggling with depth in the secondary and then the return game, the Ravens have signed defensive back Bryan McCann to a two-year contract, according to multiple sources.

McCann had a cup of coffee with the Ravens last season, but was released and then signed by the Dallas Cowboys (who originally cut him in 2010).

The defensive back was signed to provide depth in the secondary, but more importantly, to return kicks. Lardarius Webb had been handling punt returns, but has been heavily used on defense and David Reed had been returning kickoffs. Reed is nursing a shoulder injury.

In Sunday night's game, LaQuan Williams looked indecisive and Ed Reed wound up fielding punts. 

To make room on the roster, the Ravens released linebacker Prescott Burgess.
