Ravens final 53-man roster


Posted Sep 1, 2012


The Ravens took their time until they finalized their roster at the 9 p.m. It went with two QBs and seven CBs.

The Ravens waited until the 9 p.m. on Friday deadline to file their cuts, trimming the roster down to 53 players. There were no real surprises, though three undrafted free agents made the 53-man roster along with all but one of the 2012 draft picks.

After thinking it might be worthwhile to keep three quarterbacks, Baltimore released Curtis Painter, who started eight games for Indianapolis a year ago. Sergio Kindle also made the roster, despite being considered “not a lock” by coach John Harbaugh earlier in the week.

The lone draft pick not to make the 53-man roster was receiver Tommy Streeter, who was placed on injured reserve with a sprained foot.

Here’s the 53-man roster, followed by the cuts and the other roster moves.
