(Veteran) Safety/Cornerback: DeAndre Houston-Carson

Yes, the Ravens signed DAHC just a few days ago and in the middle of the preseason, but that's only because Marlon Humphrey got injured while multiple other cornerbacks were also down and out of the practice facilities.

Will the veteran Houston-Carson be able to hold onto a 53-man roster position, though? He was great in his years in Chicago... as a special-team player. He has featured on actual defensive plays (1,000+ snaps) and he played dime safety, but it's not that he is expected to move the needle that much in Baltimore.

DAHC will need to have a sublime performance and make the most of his opportunities against the Bucs if he wants to lock himself into that final-roster spot he believed he had signed up for when he inked his deal with the Ravens.
