The easiest Baltimore Ravens roster cuts to project
Defensive Line: Zach Sieler
The Ravens don’t have a lot of defensive linemen they can just say goodbye to. Zach Sieler is in his second season and he really hasn’t done much of note. The Ravens can’t just wait for it to happen. The roster math doesn’t give them that luxury. Gerald Willis is an undrafted free agent that should easily make the roster. The Ravens won’t cut a lot of defensive linemen but it’s time to move on from Sieler.
Linebackers: Shane Ray, Alvin Jones, Nicholas Grigsby
The Ravens have to be honest with themselves. They gave Shane Ray a chance and it doesn’t look like it will amount to anything. The Ravens have a lot to prove at outside linebacker but they have to cut dead weight. Ray doesn’t look like a difference maker. The Ravens have just enough at outside linebacker. It’s going to be a lot of Matt Judon, Tim Williams and Tyus Bowser. Pernell McPhee fits into the equation as well so Ray should be cut.
Alvin Jones and Nicholas Grigsby are in a tough spot because the Ravens roster spots are filled at the inside linebacker spot. Otaro Alaka may slip into the 53 man roster yet Alvin Jones shouldn’t be able to. Expect the Ravens to go with Patrick Onwuasor, Kenny Young and Chris Board. Alaka may have climbed into a roster spot and he certainly does not qualify as an easy roster cut. Jones is probably the first one to get cut here.
The Secondary: Maurice Canady, Stanley Jean-Baptiste
The Ravens have always had high hopes for Canady, yet this should be the end of his run with the team. The Ravens honestly don’t have an easy cut in the secondary. Just about every player in the cornerback and safety grouping has an argument for a roster spot. The question is how much will you get out of each player. The answer for Canady and Stanley Jean-Baptiste is not much.
