With the 53 man roster now set, the Ravens have shown faith in the players that they kept. Most of the players on the roster already had their spots locked down, but the rest had to battle tooth and nail to earn their way onto the team.

With the roster looking as strong and deep as it currently does, many of the bubble players are lucky that they have been given the opportunity. However, for a few of these bubble players, this may be their last chance to prove their worth to the team.

Lack of performance, inability to stay healthy, and poor development have been the culprits for these players. With some of these guys on their second and third chances to prove themselves, now is the time to step up and play better.

The following players should see their fortune (making the roster) as a call to action to step up their game, or they will not be around on the Ravens roster much longer.
