A 2014 second-round pick, Jean-Baptiste never gained any traction with the Saints but did make a bid for the Ravens' 53-man roster in 2018 before a preseason forearm fracture sent him to injured reserve. He'll have a tough time sticking with Baltimore in 2019, as the current group of cornerbacks includes four established starters, a return specialist (Cyrus Jones) and a 2018 fourth-round pick (Anthony Averett). Jean-Baptiste will need to provide significant value on special teams, and it would also help if he adds the versatility to play safety and/or slot corner.
Jean-Bapiste spent the 2018 season on injured reserve after suffering a broken arm late in the preseason. The 28-year-old has appeared in only five NFL games since being drafted in the second round of the 2014 draft by the Saints.
Jean-Baptiste (arm) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Jean-Baptiste was placed on injured reserve prior to the NFL's final cut deadline, meaning he is ineligible to return during the 2018 season. The 2014 second-rounder season-ending injury is thought to be a broken right arm, but more information should be released over the upcoming few days.
Jean-Baptiste exited Thursday's preseason finale with a right arm injury and was later seen with his arm in a cast and a sling. He'll likely land on injured reserve as a result, and his 2018 season may be over before it began.
