Ravens Roster Moves: Ravens clean house

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens must not have been happy with their performance against Cleveland as they are currently scrapping several players for a variety of reasons. This marks the second house-cleaning in recent history for the Baltimore Ravens as they did a similar act after a loss during the 2014 NFL season.

Jason Babin:

First up is outside linebacker Jason Babin, who had been brought in after the loss of Terrell Suggs. Babin was inactive for a few games for unknown reasons and followed it up with a terrible penalty against Cleveland. He has been cut.

Rashaan Melvin:

I was all for Melvin heading into the season as he looked good on the practice field. However, injuries slowed him down to start the season and several penalties and just not being effective kept him inactive against Cleveland. With the secondary giving up nearly 500 yards to Josh McCown, it is clear that Harbaugh is firing people to send a message and to get some players that will step up.

Head coach John Harbaugh has been direct about his desire to get players to step up and if he can't find them in-house, he'll find them on the street if need be. With a major shakeup coming on the heels of a 1-4 start to the season, this reeks of the Ravens wanting to send a message to the veterans on the team and to grab in any playmakers that are willing to make a difference on a team that seriously needs it.

Based on how many moves are coming and how quickly they are happening, keep an eye on this page as we will continue to update it with any additional players cut.
