Rumor Mill: Ravens Roster Cuts


The Ravens have reportedly begun making roster cuts as of Monday morning.

All teams must be down to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Here are the latest reports:

Tuesday, Aug. 29

Mitchell did not play in the preseason finale after suffering a shoulder injury in the second preseason game. He flashed his explosiveness in the first two preseason games, having a long touchdown run called back due to a penalty, then with a 31-yard gallop against the Commanders. If the Ravens keep Mitchell, it would most likely mean rostering four running backs.

A Ravens fifth-round pick in 2021, Mason spent last season on Baltimore's practice squad. He had a strong training camp, but Baltimore has three-time Pro Bowl fullback Patrick Ricard, who will see fewer snaps this year but still adds valuable physicality to the offense, and will likely be used as an in-line blocker after the losses of tight ends Nick Boyle and Josh Oliver this offseason.

Monday, Aug. 28

Botts is an undrafted rookie out of Colorado State (Pueblo). The defensive tackle had three tackles and a sack in the preseason finale in Tampa.

Caesar is an undrafted rookie from Ohio University. He was not credited with any tackles in the three preseason games.

The Ravens signed Houston-Carson on Aug. 14, in the midst of a rash of short-term injuries in their secondary. The veteran played the last seven seasons with the Chicago Bears and made a career-high six starts last year.

Mayfield is an undrafted rookie out of Texas-San Antonio who flashed his scrappiness in practice. He made six tackles in the Ravens' second preseason game against Washington, but did not record a stop in the preseason finale.
