Part of the start of the football season marks a lot of smaller roster moves. As guys are given a good look on the field and scheme is being placed together, coaches and general managers begin to figure out who will best fit on their team.
The Ravens have cut undrafted rookie linebacker Trey DePriest and re-signed undrafted rookie linebacker Andrew Bose. You might remember Bose's name as he was on the roster just a few weeks ago but was cut in order to make room for cornerback Kyle Arrington. Bose is a Maryland kid, growing up in Huntingtown and attending Rhode Island, where he was a team captain and second-team all-conference selection as a junior.
I had the chance to sit down with Andrew last week where we talked a lot about his love of the game along with what he feels are his strengths and weaknesses. We'll be posting up the full interview in the coming days, but the major takeaways were that Bose is as humble as they come, with a good head on his shoulders. He's a fast linebacker that will probably get more look as a cover linebacker on tight ends and running backs, but make not mistake about it, Bose can lay a smackdown on a ball carrier.
Be sure that Bose is going to carry a small chip on his shoulder for being overlooked in the draft and will be doing everything he can to become a household name for the Baltimore Ravens.
