Ravens add 3 players to roster in midst of transaction moves

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens are starting to get their house in order one by one. Even though the Ravens chances at the postseason are almost done, it doesn't mean things can't change right now.  The Ravens made a big move sending rookie wide receiver Breshad Perriman to IR. Here are other moves to follow on this busy day at the castle.

Wide receiver Kaelin Clay add to the Ravens roster

Rookie wide receiver Kaelin Clay will take the place of Jeremy Ross at the wide receiver position for now as he was signed off of the Detroit Lions practice squad. He will be part of the Ravens 53-man roster. Clay, 23, at 5'10 weighing 195 pounds, is well known from his days with the Utah Utes as a dangerous punt returner. He could be what the Ravens need at the position and more. Clay has never played in a real NFL game, but he has a good shot of doing so with the Ravens.

Tight end Chase Ford added to the Ravens roster

Chase Ford was signed off of the Minnesota Vikings practice squad and not only will he be added to the 53-man roster, but also a roster stacked with tight ends in Maxx Williams, Crockett Gillmore and Nick Boyle. Ford, 25, is a young player from the Miami Hurricanes and has played in 20 games in three seasons in the NFL accumulating 34 catches for 391 yards and one touchdown.

Ford is a big tight end at 6'6 weighing 265 pounds. Coming out of the draft, scouts liked his size and speed. He could be nice addition for the Ravens but he has his work cut out for him in terms of playing time at tight end.

Cornerback Cassius Vaughn added to the Ravens roster

Cassius Vaughn was originally signed by the Ravens during the offseason, but wasn't able to make the final cut during the preseason. Vaughn, 28, at 5-11 weighing 195 pounds, is entering his sixth season in the NFL from the Ole Miss Rebels and has a career total of seven interceptions (two of which returned for touchdowns) 138 tackles, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He will now be part of the Ravens 53-man roster.

Vaughn has shown play making ability with his two interceptions returned for touchdowns. The Ravens desperately need playmakers in their secondary.
