Aaron Wilson reports that TE Nathan Overbay and OLB D.J. Roberts will be released.

I liked Overbay maybe he makes it to our PS Actually Supernaw will probably be our PS TE.

I think Supernaw could go on IR. He took a nice hit. Okay, okay. I really want us to keep him because of that awesome name.

These are all of the obvious cuts right now.  I imagine we save the more difficult decisions for tomorrow.

I lost Ozzie's phone #, someone please call him and tell him to keep Fitz Toussaint, Jeremy Butler & Jim Hurst. Don't have to be part of the 53, PS will do.

Well for those who waited to submit their final 53 man roster, the Ravens sure are helping lol. 

 

Is there really any hard decisions to make in terms of the final roster? These are obvious cuts.

It'll get difficult here tomorrow.

 

QB - Wenning or no Wenning?

WR - Thompson or Aiken?

OL - Feel the need to keep Hurst?

LB - McClellan have a spot?

CB - Keep 5 or 6, and who?

S - Keep 5 or 6, and who?

Will Hill doesn't count against the 53 man roster since he is suspended. So I'm thinking Jeremy Miles until Hill's suspension is up.

QB PS

WR Thompson if we keep both assuming we also keep camp that would be 7 wr's that's too many.

OL I don't think he clears waivers but he's a nice PS if available

LB I think he's odd man out

CB I think we keep 6 due to our starters being iffy so I'd also add Cox

S It's 6 again with Miles being added for Hill since he's suspended.

I think he was the best of the bunch to be honest. He did a pretty good job overall. I liked Hopkins as well.

 

I hated him when I went to TC at the Castle, but it does look like he turned it around in games.

Unless we counting on Cody to return to the team then I guess we will be running with five defensive linemen if you not counting Mcphee.

I figured that would be the case.  Upshaw and McPhee both saw a lot of time with their hands in the dirt on obvious passing downs.  You can definitely get away with that throughout the season as long as there are no injuries.

Toussaint needs to be suited up game 1

BJax on CSN suggested that from a business standpoint the Ravens would cut Forsett bc as a vet if he's on the roster on Tue @ 4:00 the Ravens would owe him his full years salary, but if they cut him and then bring him back later (bc he's unlikely to be claimed off the waiver wire) they could save money if they want to release him later in the season. Just another example of decisions are not always football decisions.

 

Good luck on picking your rosters. :)

It would make sense other that the fact that we kind of need him for week 1.  He's the complement to Pierce until Rice gets back.

Later could be Wed. or Thur.

Anyway, just passing along a "trick" teams might use with their players.

His salary is guaranteed when he plays the first game, which is 1 of 2 games where we'll definitely want him.

I'd say a committee of Pierce, LT, and Toussaint is good enough and cheaper.

i think we can keep extra WR and sacrifice 1 of the safeties, someone like "cant recognize my teammate" Tarwick can be cut and resign later , no one will pick him up.
