On September 2, prior to 4:00 PM, New York time, all rosters must be cut to a maximum of 53 players on the Active/Inactive List. Though it sounds far away, it’s only a week away.
Tavon Young — Season ending
Kenneth Dixon — Season ending
Nico Siragusa — Season ending
Tim White — Season ending
Alex Lewis — Season ending
Crockett Gillmore — Season ending
John Urschel — Retired
Maurice Canady— IR Candidate
Offense — 24
Unless Woodrum throws five touchdowns and zero picks tonight, while Mallett throws the opposite, Mallett’s job feels secure.
Buck balled out against the Miami Dolphins, while T-West fumbled and was held out of the game. I think the gap has separated for Taquan Mizzell, especially with Buck being of special teams value.
I’ve placed Lorenzo Taliaferro on this list the past few weeks, but I’m uncertain if he makes the roster. He gives the Ravens an extra back in case of injury, but with the Ravens trotting out Patrick Ricard, a defensive lineman, it feels as though they’re not happy with the lead-blocking from Zo.
Keenan is the only underdog capable of landing on this list, but I don’t believe he makes it. He’s still going to land with the Ravens on their practice squad for a second season.
All four are roster material. All four are capable of making plays.
Same as last week, this position looks terrifyingly low, but only due to multiple players being listed as centers or tackles, rather than guards.
Zuttah is the new addition. I suspect he’ll find a spot as the teams’ center, while Jensen is pushed to left guard. Not the worst idea, as Jensen is a big-mauler, which is the Ravens style this season.
Defense — 26
Though Patrick Ricard was even being used as a fullback last week, I don’t believe he beats Davis for the spot. He is the 54th man, unfortunately.
Anthony Levine Sr.
Special Teams — 3
