The Baltimore Ravens have begun the process of trimming their roster down to 75 players. Here’s the full list of roster cuts up to this point:
- K Wil Lutz
- ILB Kavell Conner
- G Jarrell Broxton
- DT Trevon Coley
- WR Dobson Collins
- C Anthony Fabiano
- WR Chuck Jacobs
- QB Jerrod Johnson
- LB Mario Ojemudia
- WR Darius White
Other roster moves include:
- CB Kyle Arrington, TE Ben Watson, DE Bronson Kaufusi, OT Stephane Nembot (Injured Reserve)
- RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (PUP)
Watson, unfortunately, suffered a torn Achilles on the first play of Saturday’s preseason game, so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
Watson, 35, is coming off of an impressive 2015 season and is in line to be an unrestricted free agent as of tomorrow. He signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Ravens as an unrestricted free agent back in March.
In 2015, Watson appeared in all 16 games for the Saints and recorded 74 receptions for 825 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 56 tight end out of 73 qualifying players.
Arrington, 30, wound up signing a three-year, $7 million contract that included $2.8 million guaranteed with the Ravens. He was set to make base salaries of $2.1 million over the final two years of the contract.
He agreed to take pay cut to stay with the Ravens back in March.
In 2015, Arrington appeared in 15 games for the Ravens and recorded 28 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble, and three pass defenses.
