15. Ravens target: Josh Johnson, QB

This one completely depends on what the organization ultimately does with Trace McSorley who was waived as part of final roster cuts. If McSorley is claimed by another team, Josh Johnson would be a perfect addition to Baltimore’s practice squad.

Released by the NY Jets on Monday night, Johnson is an ideal backup for Lamar Jackson and could serve as veteran insurance behind Tyler Huntley.

14. Ravens target: Joseph Jones, LB

With the aforementioned Fort out for the season, the Ravens could use a veteran linebacker to possibly take the roster spot of Kristian Welch.

The recently released Joseph Jones is a core special teamer who’s played in 75 percent of his team’s special-teams snaps in two of the last three seasons.

Jones might be worth a look if Baltimore is looking for another special-teams ace to replace Fort.

13. Ravens target: Peyton Barber, RB

Peyton Barber isn’t the first running back on this list and he won’t be the last either. Barber is one of the more experienced running backs that was released on Tuesday having played five years in the NFL.

His production has been lackluster, but Barber would be a reliable veteran addition behind Gus Edwards with the duo of Ty’Son Williams and Justice Hill remaining wholly unproven.
