Ravens signed S Omar Brown and S Brynden Trawick off their practice squad.

Ravens S Omar Brown has been referred to by his Baltimore teammates as "Baby Ed Reed."
The Carroll County Times mentions Brown and fellow backup safety Christian Thompson as players that "would likely vie" for Reed's free safety position should Reed retire or move on elsewhere. Brown gets the comparison based on his ability to "consistently find the football and create turnovers." However, he's not a big guy, and only appeared in three games as an undrafted rookie after being promoted from the practice squad in Week 15.
