DeAndre Carter Among First Eight Ravens Cut

The Ravens began making cuts a day early, trimming the roster from 90 to 82 on Monday morning.

Baltimore has to make seven more moves to get to 75 players on the roster by 4 p.m. Tuesday. Some of those moves will presumably be moving players to injured reserve or the physically unable to perform list.

The Ravens' cuts are:

  • G Leon Brown (Alabama)
  • WR DeAndre Carter (Sacramento State)
  • CB Tramain Jacobs (Texas A&M)
  • G/T Marcel Jones (Nebraska)
  • P Justin Manton (Louisiana Monroe)
  • WR Aldrick Robinson (Southern Methodist)
  • LS Patrick Scales (Utah State)
  • WR Trent Steelman (Army)

Of the cuts, rookie free agent wide receiver DeAndre Carter stands out. Carter drew a lot of buzz early this summer during rookie minicamp and Organized Team Activities. Steve Smith Sr. even compared the 5-foot-8 Carter to Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl receiver Randall Cobb.

However, Carter didn't make as many plays as a receiver once training camp began and he muffed two kickoffs during preseason games, hurting his chance to make the team as a returner.
