Ravens signed CB Jerraud Powers, formerly of the Cardinals, to a one-year contract.
Powers visited the Giants and Cardinals before choosing Baltimore. He'll compete with Shareece Wright for a starting job at corner. The 28-year-old logged five interceptions during his three-year stay in Arizona, but was all too frequently a burn victim opposite Patrick Peterson. Despite a shortage of cornerback depth, the Cardinals let Powers walk without any fight. May 13 - 3:17 PM

Date:

Free agent CB Jerraud Powers is visiting the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Powers, of course, spent the past three seasons playing for Arizona. They likely don't need to "visit" with each other. A signing could be imminent.

Free agent CB Jerraud Powers left his visit with the Giants without a deal.

Powers met with New York on Thursday and Friday, but the two sides did not come to an agreement. NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan reports "the door appears to remain open," but Powers will "explore other options." The Giants are looking for an upgrade at slot corner.
Apr 2 - 9:54 AM

Free agent CB Jerraud Powers will visit the Giants on Thursday.

The G-Men are looking for a nickel corner behind starters Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins. Powers made 40 starts for the Cardinals over the past three seasons and would be an above-average pickup to cover the slot. He'd compete with incumbent Jayron Hosley for the gig.
Mar 30 - 9:43 AM

Cardinals RCB Jerraud Powers is day to day with a strained calf.

With the Rams on the docket for Week 13, the Cardinals won't push their starting corner. Justin Bethel is the next man up.

Cardinals CB Jerraud Powers exited Week 12 against the 49ers with a calf injury.

Cardinals RCB Jerraud Powers (hamstring) will be sidelined a "couple of weeks."

Powers has a Grade 2 sprain. Powers is performing at a replacement level, but has been an every-down player this season. His loss forces special teamer Justin Bethel into the starting lineup opposite Patrick Peterson.

Cardinals CB Jerraud Powers exited Week 7 against the Ravens with a hamstring injury and will not return.

Powers is the weakest link in the Arizona secondary, but is still an average starter. His injury forces special teamer Justin Bethel into the lineup.

ESPN Cardinals blogger Josh Weinfuss believes there's a "good chance" CB Jerraud Powers is a salary-cap casualty.

Powers is due $3 million, and would count $4.75 million against the cap. Powers started all 16 games last season, but was highly uneven opposite Patrick Peterson. He had a knack for breaking up passes, but also making mistakes. The Cardinals could possibly do better for cheaper opposite shut-down corner Peterson.

AzCardinals.com expects Jerraud Powers to start over Antoine Cason opposite Patrick Peterson.

Reporter Darren Urban "wouldn’t be shocked" if Cason beat out Powers in camp, however. Urban believes Powers' experience playing for Cardinals coach Bruce Arians last season gives him a leg up. Cason has been a starter each of the past three years, but played poorly in 2012. He's also making less than Powers. In other words, Powers is the better bet to start.

Jerraud Powers has been running as the No. 2 cornerback over Antoine Cason in Cardinals OTAs.

Cason has been a starter each of the past three seasons, but it's not a surprise after Powers brought home a three-year, $10.5 million deal compared to Cason's one-year, $2 million pact. Cason could fall back to dime duties with Javier Arenas highly experienced in the slot. A rangy press corner, Cason is best suited to the outside. The Cards are deep at cornerback one year after being thin.

Cardinals agreed to terms with CB Jerraud Powers, formerly of the Colts, to a three-year, $10.5 million contract.

New head coach Bruce Arians has his fingerprints all over this one. He got a first-hand look at Powers in practice every day last season while both were in Indianapolis. Now Powers will step in as a starter opposite Patrick Peterson in the Cardinals' thin secondary.

Free agent CB Jerraud Powers will visit the Cardinals then Chargers.

Both teams are extremely desperate for cornerback help. Arizona has just two under contract for 2013, and both of San Diego's starters from 2012 are free agents. Powers has a staff connection with both organizations.

According to the Indy Star, the Colts view free agent Jerraud Powers as a No. 2 corner.

Powers wants to be paid like a No. 1 corner, so he's likely going to hit the open market later this afternoon. He's been steadily linked to San Diego, where Tom Telesco is now the general manager. Telesco was part of the Colts' front office when they drafted Powers.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 11:11:00 AM

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts remain in talks with free agent CB Jerraud Powers, but that he's drawing interest from "at least two other teams."

It would behoove Powers to sign quickly if he's planning to leave the Colts, as the money for cornerbacks will dry up quickly in a loaded market. San Diego is one team that might place a higher price on Powers than the Colts.
