The Baltimore Ravens are close to trading rookie cornerback Shaun Wade to the New England Patriots, NFL Network reported Thursday.

Baltimore drafted Wade in the fifth round in 2021 out of Ohio State, where was a first team All-Big Ten selection last season.

Wade, who turns 23 next month, intercepted New Orleans Saints rookie Ian Book in the Ravens’ preseason opener on Aug. 14.

With star cornerback Stephon Gilmore (quad) on the physically unable to perform list, Wade would add depth the New England secondary.

The report did not indicate what the Ravens would receive in exchange.
