The Baltimore Ravens added a cornerback on Monday afternoon.
He claimed cornerback Trayvon Mullen off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys. He is the first second round pick out of the Las Vegas Raiders.
More than that, he is a cousin of Ravens’ star quarterback Lamar Jackson.
The Raiders originally traded Mullen to the Arizona Cardinals earlier this season, before he was waived and then claimed by the Cowboys.
During the season, he appeared in nine games (eight for the Cardinals and one for the Cowboys) and finished with 16 total tackles, one forced fumble, and one pass defended.
The NFL world joked that this signing was a way for the Ravens to keep Jackson in Baltimore for the rest of his career.
“Makes sense. Trayvon and Lamar Jackson are cousins. Bring on the family,” read another tweet.
Marcus Peters, Kyle Fuller and Kevon Seymour would all be free agents in March, so the Ravens needed cornerback help going into next season.
