The Baltimore Ravens made their first round of cuts today, dismissing local product and R&B star Darnerien McCants and tight end Aaron Walker. McCants, who had been out of the league for two seasons prior to camp, caught one pass for 30 yards in the first game of the preseason. Both McCants and Walker were signed in July.
The Ravens also ended the season of three others by placing them on injured reserve. The most notable of the IR crew was Dwan Edwards, a second-round pick in 2004 who had six tackles and a sack this preseason, and was a starter in 2007 when Trevor Pryce went down due to injuries. Linebacker Terrence Melton and tackle Kelly Talavou were the others.
