The Baltimore Ravens have seen their fair share of positive contributors this season, as is expected with a 6-3 roster. But they’ve also seen a few duds here and there as well.

The 53-man roster of any NFL team is a well-constructed puzzle that requires frequent tinkering and extensive guidance. The goal is for all 53 players to play a role in one way or another.

Whether that role is as glamorous as the staring quarterback or as insignificant as the long snapper, ideally all 53 players will contribute throughout the course of the season.

However, that isn’t always the case.

For whatever reason, sometimes players stick around on the active roster despite never seeing the field. Perhaps they’re there for depth purposes or perhaps the team has bigger future plans for the player.

Whatever the case, their impact is insignificant. Those are the players we’re going to talk about today.

Now, a few ground rules must first be set. Only players who spent all or most of the season on the active roster will be considered. Players who have been primarily on the practice squad or injured reserve will not be considered.

That means players like Daelin Hayes or Jordan Richards who have had stints on the active roster will not be on this list.

On top of that, players with defined roles such as Tyler Huntley also won’t be on this list. Huntley has only played in garbage time, but it would be silly to argue the importance of having a backup quarterback.

With that, let’s take a look at five Ravens players who have contributed very little this season.
