Ravens Promote CB Asa Jackson To Active Roster, Place DT Willie Henry On I.R.

The Baltimore Ravens announced Tuesday that they’ve promoted CB Asa Jackson to their active roster and placed rookie DT Willie Henry on injured reserve.

Jackson, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2012. He spent the first three years of his career in Baltimore before he was waived as the team cut their roster down to 53 players this past weekend.

Jackson was waived with the injury designation before later reverting to the team’s injured reserve list. Baltimore wound up waiving him not long after, but he managed to catch on to the Bengals practice squad at the end of November.

The Cardinals signed him to a future/reserve contract this past January before cutting him loose coming out of the preseason. The Ravens signed him to their practice squad close to a month ago.

In 2015, Jackson appeared in four games for the Ravens and recording just one tackle.

Henry, 22, was taken in the fourth round of this year’s NFL draft by the Ravens. He signed a four-year, $2,723,393 contract and stands to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Henry did not appear in a single game.
