The Baltimore Ravens narrowed down their practice squad to 15 players as they made their cuts and set their roster. The practice squad is about the long-term development of these players but also about keeping players who have the chance to make impacts this season.

With the new activation rules, we see practice squad players called up more frequently than ever. Who are the Ravens practice squad members, and which ones have the best chance to make the team?

15. Ben Mason is a depth fullback for the Baltimore Ravens

The former fifth-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens stuck around since the 2021 NFL draft despite not taking a snap in the NFL. He has actually bounced around the NFL as well. Mason spent time with the New England Patriots and Chicago Bears in 2021 but wound up right back on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad for the 2022 season.

Now that he has cleared waivers and circled back to the practice squad again, it is hard to see him leaving this time around. The good news is that he may be staying because he could see the NFL roster in 2023. The Baltimore Ravens kept Patrick Ricard this season, but his roster status is in jeopardy. The team could save about $4M next year if they let Ricard go, which seems like an easy decision at this point. So, Mason will stay on the practice squad this year, and next year, finally, Ben Mason has a chance to make the team. This year, he would need a Patrick Ricard injury.
