Overall, the Baltimore Ravens‘ summer could be graded as “just average.”

Despite extending their undefeated preseason record, the Ravens were hit by several setbacks, most notably J.K. Dobbins’ season-ending torn ACL.

Before that, each of their wide receivers was at some point in camp injured, and before that, there was the whole Lamar Jackson COVID-19 scare.

Thankfully, final cuts on Tuesday brought mostly humdrum news as the Ravens aimed to trim down the team to a 53-man roster.

For the most part, the roster has been set and players’ fates have been decided.

Heading into the 2021 season, this Ravens’ team still has some questions to answer: Without Dobbins, what will the running game look like? (We think Gus Edwards will do just fine.)

How good is the pass-rushing corps now? (Still unproven, but not as worrisome as before.) Will Jackson recapture MVP levels of production? (Jury’s still out on that one.)

This is one of the deepest teams the Ravens have had in years which bodes very well for a serious Super Bowl run this season.

As a drama-filled preseason comes to an end, Baltimore should be mostly satisfied with the choices they made regarding who to keep and who to cut from the roster.

That being said, these were four surprising roster moves the Ravens made on cut day that caught us off guard.
