Ravens officially announce recent roster moves, waive three undrafted signees

US PRESSWIRE

Nicholas DiMarco, Aaron Ross, Dominique Franks, Austin Spitler and Mike Willie are officially members of the Baltimore Ravens.

Reports of who the Ravens were signing had trickled out one by one over the past couple of days. Most recently it was receiver Mike Willie earning a contract offer from the organization.

Now these signings are official, with the Ravens announcing their five newest members: Willie, outside linebacker Nicholas DiMarco, cornerback Aaron Ross, cornerback Dominique Franks and linebacker Austin Spitler.

To make room, the Ravens waived three undrafted signees, linebacker Xavius Boyd (Western Kentucky), cornerback Avery Patterson (Oregon) and safety Dexter Moody (Albany State). Boyd was waived-injured with a hamstring ailment.

Ross has the most experience as he enters his eighth season in the NFL. He'll have the chance to fill Corey Graham's shoes as the third cornerback on defense. He has experience as a nickel back, so he's likely the frontrunner for the spot. His chances for a 53-man roster spot do appear to be high.

Franks will also have a chance to make the post-training camp roster as a special teams contributor, though his spot won't be as sure. The other three players will have an uphill climb to earn a spot.
